Innocence tainted by pure lunacy
Cursed by the slash of a shape-shifting beast
Oh no, this can't be
Demonic infection, a doomed changeling
His future concealed as he begs to be told
A kiss from the gypsy, he'll never grow old
Oh no, this can't be
Demonic infection, a doomed changeling

Chorus
Even a man who's pure
And says his prayers by night
(He won't hear your prayers)
Man become a wolf
When the wolf bane blooms,
And the autumn moon is bright
(There's a full moon tonight)
Man may become a wolf.

He who is bitten by a wolf and lives
Possession soon follows, no use to resist
Oh no, this can't be
Cursed by the moonlight, a doomed changeling
The madness a turmoil that swells up inside
To truly find peace is to truly die
Oh no, this can't be
Cursed by the moonlight, a doomed changeling

Now comes the rampage, a killing spree
Hunting his loved ones comes instinctively
Oh no, it's maddening
A shape-shifting demon of pure lunacy
A shot from the darkness tears through its flesh
A bullet of silver lays it to rest

Oh no, it's maddening
An innocent victim finds his peace.

    General CommentLOVE the ending!
    A shape-shifting demon of pure lunacy
    A shot from the darkness tears through its flesh
    A bullet of silver lays it to rest

    Oh no, it's maddening
    An innocent victim finds his peace.

    such a great way to say about the death of a werewolf! Iced Earth forever!

    My OpinionMatt sings the hell out of this song. This and Dracula are my favorite tracks on Horror Show. Don't get me wrong, the CD as a whole is superb, but those two stand out the most to me.

    General CommentIt's good for there to be a band that just makes straight up songs about werewolves instead of all the usual tripe.

    General CommentThis details the Wolf Man, an innocent man (Talbot) is bitten by a werewolf and lives to become one and hunt his loved ones. In the end, he finds peace only through death.

    The chorus is actually derived from the poem repeatedly spoken in the film:
    "Even a man who is pure in heart
    And says his prayers by night,
    May become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms
    And the autumn moon is bright."
