"Follow The Wolves" as written by and Ryan Clark Don Clark....
Run

Every second is a pure affliction
But I can feel your pain
Choke back the burn of wrath as they violate your name
No sign of innocence in this godforsaken place
When the truth is in your hands, they'll spit upon your face

Dismantle the ground they stand on
Give power a name
You've traveled the path of slander
Now bury the shame

Shed rejection
Learn to follow the wolves

[Chorus]
Run away to the blackened sky, through the fear of disbelief
Run away from the hollow cries, to the shelter of release
Run away to the blackened sky, through the fear of disbelief
Run away from the hollow cries, to immunity

See the struggle of the faithless lot as they negate their time
How low to sink to the depths of their frame of mind

Dismantle the ground they stand on
Give power a name
You've traveled the path of slander
Now bury the shame

Shed rejection
Learn to follow the wolves

[Chorus]

No tear for desolation
Nearing the end of our misery

[Chorus]

    General Commentthe first part sounds like he's talking to God, asking Him to hold back, then attack. after this, it seems he preaches to the masses and warn them of what's to come

    General Commentit sounds to me he got the idea of this song from someone close who's in pain or in depression and that person wants to attack the flesh but he tells them to shake them spiritually

    General CommentSeems to be talking about living in a world of sinners.

    Choke back the burn of wrath as they violate your name
    No sign of innocence in this godforsaken place
    When the truth is in your hands, they’ll spit upon your face

    And maybe not conforming to the world?

    See the struggle of the faithless lot as they negate their time
    How low to sink to the depths of their frame of mind

    And than "Shed rejection" I think means to shed the rejection of the world as the call you "Jesus freak" and the such.

    General Comment"The idea behind Follow The Wolves comes from a thought I had about being “wolves in sheep’s clothing,” and how you could very well refer to us (a Christian heavy metal band) as “sheep in wolves clothing.” And in conjunction with that thought, I thought of how the term “sheep” was often used to deem someone a mindless follower. And if someone were being a “sheep” by mindlessly following the flock of worldly desires, then again, we must be the wolves. This idea got me thinking about some of the fans that have written us that feel like outsiders in their schools or churches. There are a lot of Demon Hunters that feel very alone in their principles and convictions within their environment, and they’ve written to thank us for being a source of inspiration and stability for them. This song is for all of the fans out there, pressured to follow the rest of the world and fit in with the crowd. The pre-chorus says “Shed rejection, learn to follow the wolves,” which means to forget about the ridicule from your peers. Follow us, the outcasts. We understand your struggles and we will overcome this world." - Demon Hunter

    “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” -Matthew 7:13, 14

    General Commentthis is pretty much the best song on the album in my opinion, but only because of the overall sound of the band.. metal wasnt written to be used to support religion in this way.
    Metal is the essence of antireligion and using it this way is heresy you might say. other then that, im cool with dh and they rock

    General CommentJust wanting to comment on the first few lines

    "Choke back the burn of wrath as they violate your name"
    I think this means How mad it should make you when someone uses our God's name in vain.

    "No sign of innocence in this godforsaken place
    When the truth is in your hands, they’ll spit upon your face"
    When the world has gotten so bad there is no sign of Innocence, When we bring them the Bible (our Truth), they will ignore us, spit on us, and despise us.

    "Dismantle the ground they stand on
    Give power a name"
    We should lead someone to the light, Giving "power" (I think of the word as God) a name.

    "You’ve traveled the path of slander
    Now bury the shame"
    You were there once, but it's behind you now.

    General CommentA very, very powerful song... One of my most fave DH songs... To me, this song is the ultimate definition of standing up against any one who puts down our beliefs to Christ.... DH ROCKS! JESUS RULES!

    General CommentThe song implies many ties to plato's "Allegory of the Cave" where people ignorantly deny any possiblity of a life outside of the life they know. "When the truth is in your hands, they’ll spit upon your face". I could be worng but either way... Demon Hunter KICKS ASS!!!!
