"Moonlight Equilibrium" as written by and John Kempainen Brian Eschbach....
A code embedded deep within!
Encrypted in vaults of bone and skin!
A tug, magnetic, toward the dark.
The wolf, voracious!
Hath witnessed it's mark.

Internal pressure growing, behind your eyes is mounting still.
Constant thoughts of evil are coming to a head inside you.
Humanity decreasing, blood is strong upon the passing winds.
To forsake would be a sin, let the night entrance you.

You'll feel the pull of the moonlight equilibrium.
Pitch black transmission of the soul.
Instincts from within rise!
We're all but beasts that hunger from inside.
Cannot escape this longing.

These symptoms don't remit, for death becoming sick.
The long hairs feel them stand, the nigh tworld calls again.
Your existence turning black, there'll be no coming back.
A desire to tear and hack, it's growing lord please help us!

You'll feel the pull of the moonlight equilibrium.
Pitch black transmission of the soul.
Instincts from within rise!
We're all but beasts that hunger from inside.
You must subdue this yearning, to feast!

That very eve the devil cameth,
And his will did force thine idle hands.
Open this heart of molten darkness,
Floweth foul rivers of the damned.

Blood of the lycan, within thee enthroned.
Heir to the cosmic fathers unknown.
Who traileth not far from where death would increase.
Seek they to murder to rid the world clean.
A curse by the ancients of bloodline befouled,
The clouds they are parting, the moon has come out!

Internal pressure growing, behind your eyes is mounting still.
Constant thoughts of evil are coming to a head inside you.
Humanity decreasing, blood is strong upon the passing winds.
To forsake would be a sin, let the night entrance you.

You'll feel the pull of the moonlight equilibrium.
Pitch black transmission of the soul.
Instincts from within rise!
We're all but beasts that hunger from inside.
Cannot repress these urges to kill!
To taste the red, your only will!
There's no salvation.

    General CommentThis song is brilliant! The riffs and especially the catchy chorus is masterfully done. The Black Dahlia Murder have become one of my favourity bands; heavy, catchy, METAL!! And I agree with MorphingPretzel, this song is about a man transforming into a werewolf.

    Didn't think they could top their last album. Well, I was wrong.

    General CommentAt first I just thought this song was just about werewolves too but the more I listened to it the more I started thinking it was about another Castlevania game. Lords Of Shadows. There are subtle things in it and obvious stuff like all the werewolf talk but then the part that really made me think it could be about that game is:

    That very eve the devil cameth,
    And his will did force thine idle hands.
    Open this heart of molten darkness,
    Floweth foul rivers of the damned.

    SPOILERS FOR THE GAME

    There is a part in the game where the main character goes to sleep one night and ends up being forced to kill a companion. Throughout most of the game he is being guided by his mentor who at the end of the game turns out to be Lucifer.

    General CommentWell, from just listening/reading, it seems pretty obvious what the meaning behind this song is. My impression is, it's about the transformation from man into a werewolf.

    Such a catchy song though, one of my favorites from Ritual.

    Lycanthropy; embedded code being the werewolf gene, dark the wolf voracious hath witnessed it's mark being relative to wolves & werewolves.

    First TBDM song, I'm in love~
