I was not there for rehearsal, I don’t need it any more
When I show up just in time to pop you can clear the goddamn floor

Empty out the locker room, let me find my space
Let him who thinks he knows no fear look well upon my face

Nameless bodies in unremembered rooms
Know how a man becomes a beast when the wolfbane blooms

Sail past all the grasping hands, floodlights white and hot
Bring my vision into focus, find out what I’ve got

Some sniveling local babyface with an angle he can’t sell
Full werewolf off the buckle like an angel straight from hell

Nameless bodies in unremembered rooms
Run howling through the carnage when the wolfbane blooms

Half the city sound asleep and safe inside their beds
Get lost inside my thoughts and nearly tear his face to shreds

Blood pooling on the canvas as the atmosphere gets hushed
Bring your heroes to the wolf’s den, watch them all get crushed

Get told to maybe dial it back backstage later on
Everyone still in this building right now: dead before the dawn

Nameless bodies in unremembered rooms
The pure at heart go putrid when the wolfbane blooms

    My InterpretationI see it as a wrestler who disdains the scripted orchestration that is often attributed to wrestling. He's still a showman though, and doesn't refuse to play to the game; but he's playing it on his terms, as a violent and savage opponent who isn't gonna follow your rules.

    My InterpretationWerewolves are good humans during the day, but evil wolves at night. I'm guessing the main character in this song is a good person in his normal everyday life, but when he steps into the arena, he changes into someone who is pure evil. Because that's what it takes to succeed in wrestling.
