Ooooh
Run away, the past will bite again
Ooooh
No matter where you dwell
You
Here again, a captive of the howl
You
Welcome back to hell

Faithful, as the full moon is rising
Beauty and the beast are colliding

Sharpened edge touch liquid flame
Deepened seed soaks anger's reign
Arching back, shape-shift derange
Father, how I watched you change

Am I savage?
Scratching at the door
Am I savage?
I don't recognize you anymore

Ooooh
Tooth is fang, twisting under skin
Ooooh
Foul tongue, black breath
Change
Snap inside, the beast about complete
Change
Soon infects the rest

Faithful, as the full moon is rising
Beauty and the beast are colliding

Sharpened edge touch liquid flame
Deepened seed soaks anger's reign
Arching back, shape-shift derange
Father, how I watched you change

Am I savage?
Scratching at the door
Am I savage?
I don't recognize you anymore

Ooooh
Inheritance, the past has bit again
Ooooh
The next heir of anarchy
Feel
Stretching skin so far beyond belief
I feel
The ever changing, you, in me

Am I savage?
Scratching at the door
Am I savage?
Howling evermore
Am I savage?
I don't recognize you anymore
Anymore
Anymore
Am I savage?

    My InterpretationTo me this song is about alcohol abuse/addiction.
    And a relationship between a father and a son.
    My father was an OK father, when sober. He looked normal. Like a wolf, in this song.
    When he was drunk, the expression in his face turned and he raged. Into a werewolf, of sorts.
    I couldn't recognize him, he was terrifying. I was only 5-6, (I think) since conciousness/awareness didn't "kick" in earlier, lol...
    My parents divorced when I was 12, just about or had hit puberty etc.
    Here I am, turning into the werewolf myself at the ripe age of 34.
    Just my interpretation, seeing as Daddy Hetfield & Jaymz himself also struggled with alcohol.
