i woke up howling at the moon
lost and scared
this place i'd not been before
like the fear, the voices grew
they yelled, "kill the beast, before he kills you"
heard her scream "c'mon lets run,
if they catch us here,
we won't live to see the sun"
hang you by morning, shoot me by gun
this dying beast
felt his heart'd been torn

wake up, you've got the blues

a peasant sent love with the queen
was cast through the shadows
to one frightful dream
the kings black magic
screamed "hey you wait
there you'll die a beast
like my heart did break"

wake up, you've got the blues

    General CommentI think it's related to depression, alot of these songs seem to be to me.

    i woke up howling at the moon
    lost and scared
    this place i'd not been before
    like the fear, the voices grew

    Possibley he is talking about awakening from a deep depression, describing it as being like a werewolf becoming human again and finding himself howling at the moon. He doesnt fully comprehend why he's so depressed and has never been so fully engulfed in it. Again wakening momenterialy, the moon in a sense has come out from behind a cloud again and the voices grow dragging him back down.

    they yelled, "kill the beast, before he kills you"
    heard her scream "c'mon lets run,
    if they catch us here,
    we won't live to see the sun"
    hang you by morning, shoot me by gun
    this dying beast
    felt his heart'd been torn

    Could be talking about his fear to tell people and let him know how hes feeling, scared he might be ridiculed and sent to a spot in peoples mind they reserve for people they beleive are weak, monsters or beneath them. All these feelings tear him up even more tearing his heart at how emotionless he imagines people would be to him.

    wake up, you've got the blues

    He keeps telling himself this over and over trying to pull himself out, or maybe its a callout to other people depressed and lonely "Wake up you got the blues" pull yourself together, nothings as bad as you think it is!

    a peasant sent love with the queen
    was cast through the shadows
    to one frightful dream
    the kings black magic
    screamed "hey you wait
    there you'll die a beast
    like my heart did break"

    People are trying to reach out to him "a peasant sent love with the queen" but his mind throughs there help away putting it into the "shadows" making him believe(dream) that there is no point. "the kings black magic screamed" a reference to him being a werewolf trying to talk him into believing theres no escape from this depression.
