Off through the new day’s mist I run
Out from the new day’s mist I have come

I hunt
Therefore I am
Harvest the land
Taking of the fallen lamb

Off through the new day’s mist I run
Out from the new day’s mist I have come

We shift
Pulsing with the earth
Company we keep
Roaming the land while you sleep

Shape shift
Nose to the wind
Shape shift
Feeling I’ve been
Move swift
All senses clean
Earth’s gift
Back to the meaning of life

Bright is the moon, high in starlight
Chill in the air, cold as steel tonight

We shift
Call of the wild
Fear in your eyes
It’s later than you realized

Shape shift
Nose to the wind
Shape shift
Feeling I’ve been
Move swift
All senses clean
Earth’s gift
Back to the meaning of life

I feel a change
Back to a better day
Hair stands on the back of my neck
In wildness is the preservation of the world
So seek the wolf in thyself

Shape shift
Nose to the wind
Shape shift
Feeling I’ve been
Move swift
All senses clean
Earth’s gift
Back to the meaning of life

    General CommentI very much agree with the opinion that this song is a representation of embracing your primal instincts that we all seem to have forsaken.
    But this song means so much more than just that.
    I cant put my meaning into words very easily, but I'll try.Its like making us remember where we came from;a time when we had to be brutal, savage and mercilless in order to survive "...a better day" reminding us of ourselves, our past and what natures still lurk within us all...
    It reminds me very much of the character Perrin aybara in the wheel of time series by the late robert jordan ( amazing series, strongly recommend it, although it gets a bit monotenous after book 8). Perrin has something awakened within himself, an inner wolf. His senses heighten, his eyes turn golden and his instincts become more wolf like.

    I can see how some people here see more immediately obvious meaning to this song, as you can with most songs, such as drugs, alcohol etc etc yada yada
    But almost all songs are more than that, if only to the listeners, and the same holds true with this AMAZING song.
