Mondlicht leitet kalt den Pfad der dunkelroten Gier
Scharfe Fänge blitzen weiß, gleich tödlich-heller Zier
Mitleidlos, voll Blutdurst finster, geht es durch die Nacht
Wolfsgesang ertönet zu der Ehr' untoter Macht

Untergang der Sonne heißet Wiederkehr der Dunkelheit
bleich steht dann die Reichsarmee der Finsternis und ist gefeit
Wider Kreuz und Bibelmystik, Kabbala und Holzespfahl
Untot harren sie, vereinigt durch das blut'ge, graus'ge Mahl

Haltlos entfesselt, voll rasender Gier und getragen
Vom kalten Wolfsgesang
Blutsaugen, unbarmherzig birngen sie stets den
Tod vor Sonnenaufgang

Staubbedeckte Särge steh'n in Gruften, bergen roten Drang
Nachtwärts geht alsbald der Flug mit dem Sonnenaufgang
Durch blutige Jahrhunderte des Grauens, das kein Ende hat
Fern der süßen Illusion, die mancher still ersinnen tat.

Haltlos entfesselt, voll rasender Gier und getragen
Vom kalten Wolfsgesang
Blutsaugen, unbarmherzig birngen sie stets den
Tod vor Sonnenaufgang

Mad Hatter
Avenged Sevenfold
Matt Shadows their lead singer says the song was written as per request from the developers of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Watching the initial trailers for the game & looking at production sketches reminded him of the 'S-Town' podcast & its main protagonist, John B. McLemore. Matt also comments specifically on the lyrics: "I decided that the lyrics would shadow McLemore's life." In 2012, antiquarian horologist John B. McLemore sent an email to the staff of the show 'This American Life' asking them to investigate an alleged murder in his hometown of Woodstock, Alabama, a place McLemore claimed to despise. After a year of exchanging emails & several months of conversation with McLemore, producer Brian Reed traveled to Woodstock to investigate. Reed investigated the crime & eventually found that no such murder took place, though he struck up a friendship with the depressed but colorful character of McLemore. He recorded conversations with McLemore & other people in Woodstock. McLemore killed himself by drinking potassium cyanide on June 22, 2015 while the podcast was still in production. In the narrative of the podcast, this occurs at the end of the second episode; subsequent episodes deal with the fallout from McLemore's death while exploring more of McLemore's life & character.
