"Wolf Moon" as written by and Peter Thomas Steele....
The 28th day
She'll be bleeding again
And in lupine ways
We'll alleviate the pain

Unholy water
Sanguine addiction
Those silver bullets
A last blood benediction

It is her moon time
When there's iron in the air
A rusted essence
Woman may I know you're there

Hey wolf moon
Come cast your spell on me
Hey wolf moon
Come cast your spell on me

Don't spill a drop dear
Let me kiss the curse away
Yourself in my mouth
Will you leave me with your taste?

Beware
The woods at night
Beware
The lunar light

So in this gray haze
We'll be meating again
And on that great day
I will tease you all the same

    General CommentFor the longest time, I too thought this song was just about werewolves, and I knew the lyrics inside and out, lol. I guess its just a testament to how this song is both very subtle...yet really obvious if you think about it the right way. Extremely well crafted lyrics.

    I think this is a beautifully sensual song. I've since come to just see the werewolf elements as just being metaphorical for the empowerment a man recieves from sexually gratifying his lover. In this song, the woman is not asking for his help...he's willingly offering himself.

    There seems to be a few elements to indicate that the man is performing oral sex on the woman not only because he is turned on by it, but also because she is having pains and sex/orgasm can provide relief for that. Note "we'll alleviate the pain...let me kiss the curse away".

    However, if you understand Peter Steele and his song writing style, my guess is that he probably decided to write this song because he thought it would be funny to write such a sensual song about menstration cunnilingus. Don't get me wrong, I'm 100% sure Pete has done this with a woman, but he also sometimes likes to write songs just because its a humorous topic, even if presented seriously.

    General CommentWhen ever I went down on my girlfriend that certain scent or "essence" seemed so familiar but I could never quite put my finger on it. A thirst for blood or actual "sanguine addiction" could be attributed to iron deficiency and when I heard these lyrics I put two & two together and thought "wow, that's exactly it, a sort of rustic iron scent. That's crazy when you think about it, the scent of a mineral being apparent in blood.

    General CommentAh, the tribute to earning one's wings...red wings to be exact. Never had the stones (or maybe stomach) to try for myself.

    General Comment"if a girl ever asks you to do that, shes probably only doing it to see if you will. so you should just backhand the bitch, and when shes unconcious, THEN go down on her.
    im a girl. and i say its ok to hit your hos. gotta keep that pimp hand strong."

    Hee hee hee! (realizes that is even funnier if it isn't a joke)

    Anyway, great song... You gotta' love it. ^______^
