"Demonomania" as written by and Glenn Danzig....
Look upon me
I am the beast

Demonomania, Demonomania, Demonomania
My father was a wolf
Demonomania, Demonomania, Demonomania
My mother was a whore

You check and see
Reality of the wolf
It's in the blood
I want to be the fucking savior

Humans are weak
What else you fucking do
Humans are weak
I want your blood

Demonomania, Demonomania, Demonomania
My father was a wolf
Demonomania, Demonomania, Demonomania
My mother was a whore
Demonomania, Demonomania, Demonomania
My mother was a whore
Demonomania, Demonomania, Demonomania
My father was a wolf

    General CommentThere are two ways to read this song. “Look upon me I am the Beast” could be a reference to the Beast in the Book of Revelation, though I doubt it. More likely, the word beast is not a biblical reference, but the common, human perception of wolves. Demonomania is a term which was created the late 1500’s to describes a condition where a patient believes that he is possessed by demons. In the case of this song, lycanthropy is linked to demonic possession, which is not a new idea. Usually the transformation into a wolf involves some kind of ritual to spark the process. Drinking rainwater from the footprint of a wolf (mentioned in the Misfits song “Speak of the Devil”) is one such way, but there are many. In any case, transformation into a wolf is a way to escape society, which (in Danzig’s eyes) is pathetic -- hence the line: “humans are weak” -- and lacks the integrity of wolves, who do not lie or cheat or steal, but work only for the good of the pack.
