"Orchestra of Wolves" as written by and Christopher Frank/barnard Carter....
My name is Casanova
I'm basically a man
I have the head of a wolf
The appetite of an entire land
This song is going out to the girls
You're all looking fucking fine
Baby spread those shaking legs
Because I'm feeling fucking hungry tonight
I like to feed on broken hearts
There ain't no taste like lovers falling apart

If I offer to buy you a drink
Trust me when I say it's non-alcoholic
You're no good to me if you can't even speak
I don't want you passing out I want you sucking my dick
If I offer to buy you a drink
Trust me when I say it's non-alcoholic
I want you to wake up and remember my name
When you're washing my cum off your fucking face

My name is Casanova
I'm basically a man
I have the head of a wolf
The appetite of an entire land
This song is going out to the girls
You're all looking well buff
I'm sick of all this long term shit
I just wanna fuck

My name is Casanova
I'm nothing but a beast
Baby the way you're shaking those hips
Has got me ready for a fucking feast
This song is going out to the girls
I want to feel your body close against mine
Why waste time with conversation
When we can fuck for the rest of our lives

The hardest thing you'll ever learn
Is just to love and be loved in return

    General CommentThis song seems to be about the nasty side of love, sex and relationships. However, the line "I'm basically a man" may suggest that everyone, at least if they're male, has the potential to go down this route.

    We are not supposed to like the character who is the focus of the lyrics, as he takes advantage of girls in failing relationships:

    "I like to feed on broken hearts
    There ain't no taste like lovers falling apart"

    Furthermore, the "If I offer to buy you a drink..." section tells us that the narrator wants the kind of sex where he dominates and is also a reference to drink-spiking. The line "I want you to wake up and remember my name" shows that he is desperate for power and status. This further cements our impression that the character is a total bastard.

    The lyrics to the last section,

    "The hardest thing you'll ever learn
    Is just to love and be loved in return"

    suggest that, ultimately, the swaggering narrator of the song is left feeling hollow by his constant pursuit of loveless sex. Ths more somber music that accompanies these last lyrics is a contrast to the celebratory, chest-beating style that defined the rest of the song. The "cassanova" laments his lifestyle choice.

    This is an awesome song, and I think the lyrics are more challenging than some might take them.

    General CommentI interpreted this song personally as it is fun as fuck when you are successfully shagging left right and centre, but the most important and hardest thing is to have something real and awesome, and stick with that.

    General Comment"My name is casanova

    He's a whore, he goes out and fucks everything he can, like a beast.

    "If I offer to buy you a drink
    Trust me when i say it's non-alcoholic"
    Love without alcohol! Because he's hot enough to get a girl with them being drunk, and doesn't want puke all over his cock.

    "I like to feed on broken hearts
    There ain't no taste like lovers falling apart"
    Maybe it's about picking up girls who've got low self esteem?

    "I want to feel your body close against mine
    Why waste time with conversation
    When we can fuck for the rest of our lives"
    By the end of the song the guy's sorta fallen for this girl that he was originally just fucking about, but doesn't really admit it.

    "The hardest thing you'll ever learn
    Is just to love and be loved in return"
    That sums up the main feeling of the guy after he's realised what he's done these girls.

    What I read into it anyway.

    General CommentYeah the songs quiete obviously about the opposite he wants then completly awake and able. I agree with ndoc but the bit about feeding on broken hearts and lovers falling apart is about going after girls who have just come out of relationship and are on the rebound so they're easier to get. I don't think the guy falls for the girl I think its the other way round because he's telling her just to be fucked and leave it at that.

    General CommentFrank said on a rockworld tv interview that a lot of people misunderstand the meaning of this song.... i think he said "its about a guy enjoying shit while hes sober"

    General CommentThis song is basically about some guy (probably Frank, the lead singer) going out and fucking girls, like an animal (hence the wolf references)

    either way, this song is beautiful and AMAZING live :)

    General CommentI spoke to half of the band after their manchester gig ages ago, and he said it was about all these pricks getting girls drunk and screwing them, and how they get off on taking advantage. Its definatly not about how Frank acts, the songs is written to point out how gross the whole thing is.
