"The Hungry Wolf" as written by and John Doe Exene Cervenka....
I am the hungry wolf and run endlessly with my mate I see the gutter feed on the foolish outrun and kill the strong at daybreak I roam awake to who follows me I roam I roam I am the hungry wolf and run endlessly with my mate welcome to the dripping jaws the alter of your death at daybreak I roam ready to tear up the world I roam I roam the hungry wolf stares from the hill at the villagers around the fire she loves her mate as he loves her and they live together for life I am the hungry wolf and run endlessly with my mate look across the street, my friend we're waiting for you to slow down at daybreak I roam eyes in the back of my head I roam I roam

    General CommentFirst!

    But seriously, these lyrics have been up for 6 years and not a single comment on one of the best songs by one of the greatest and most highly influential L.A. bands ever.

    I imagine this is a song about runaways/street kids in Hollywood and the difficult life they lead. Perhaps more relevant during the band's early years.

    General CommentSome these lyrics were taken word for word from a Santee Sioux song sung by Weasel Bear, translated by Jim Heynen, and quoted in Barry Lopez's book "Of Wolves and Men" which was published in 1978, Here is the quotation:"At daybreak I roam, ready to tear up the world, I roam. At daybreak I roam, shivers coming up my spine, I roam. At daybreak I roam, awake to who is following, I roam. At daybreak I roam, eyes in the back of my head, I roam.
