Sitting in a corner all alone,
Staring from the bottom of his soul,
Watching the night come in from the window, window

It'll all collapse tonight, the full moon is here again
In sickness and in health, understanding so demanding
It has no name, there's one for every season
Makes him insane to know

Running away from it all
"I'll be safe in the cornfields", he thinks
Hunted by his own
Again he feels the moon rising on the sky

Find a barn which to sleep in, but can he hide anymore
Someone's at the door, understanding too demanding
Can this be wrong, it's love that is not ending
Makes him insane to know

She should not lock the open door
(Run away, run away, run away)
Full moon is on the sky and he's not a man anymore
She sees the change in him but can't
(Run away, run away, run away)
See what became out of her man
Full moon

Swimming across the bay,
The night is gray, so calm today
She doesn't wanna wait
"We've gotta make the love complete tonight."

In the mist of the morning he cannot fight anymore
Hundred moons or more, he's been howling
Knock on the door, a scream that is soon ending
Mess on the floor again

She should not lock the open door
(Run away, run away, run away)
Full moon is on the sky and he's not a man anymore
She sees the change in him but can't
(Run, away run away, run away)
See what became out of her man

She should not lock the open door
(Run away, run away, run away)
Full moon is on the sky and he's not a man anymore
She sees the change in him but can't
(Run away, run away, run away)
See what became out of darling man

She should not lock the open door
(Run away, run away, run away)
Full moon is on the sky and he's not a man anymore

Whoa

See what became out of her man

    General CommentApparently about a guy who is a werewolf and his wife/girlfriend is chasing him cause he ran out in the middle of the night when they were supposed to be "having fun" and then he turns into a wolf and kills her. Pretty self-explanatory. I love this song.

    General CommentI think this song is more metaphorical than the simple "werewolf kills chick" story.
    This song is about how she wants to "complete the love" but he's afraid, and he becomes a terrible person because she wants to love him but he's hiding in his werewolf shell.
    It's also saying that she's terrified of him, he's become very emotional because of her love and she can't escape from him, but that she shouldn't lock the door he's opened by showing her his emotions.

    If that was all confusing, look at it simpler: Man turns into an emotional "monster" and looks for a place to hide from them so she won't see him like this, but she insists on seeing him and finds only this emotional wreck.

    General CommentI LOVE this song!!!
    I like the werewolf explanation, but ThePython POV is pretty interesting...

    General CommentAt first sight I think this song it's about a man that turns into a werewolf because of the full moon, but after reading "ThePython"'s explanation, I thought about it and I think that explanation could be posible. In stead of all this, I like this song. The lyrics are amazing, but I think the rythm is OK too. (sorry for my english, I'm Spanish ^^)

    Ningún español por akí??? Se ve q lo weno no abunda mucho :( XDD

    General Commentwell i read yours before thinking about it, but
    it seems that the guy is running away because he is suffering from this love, though the girl goes after him...
    the werewolf thing seems the way he's feeling, suffering as a werewolf.. dunno, this is what i think :P

    General CommentI think that there are two "she": woman who loves the guy and "full moon"-his obsession(it could be another woman or some thing he is addicted to,like drugs). the man can't control himself and his obsession takes him over and over again. but every time it ends he feels awful,he's howling,knowing of
    thousands moon more to come and knowing that he won't be able to stop.and his woman loves him too much to see that his obsession took all the place in his heart leaving nothing for love

    General Commentit could be taken in 2 different ways

    on the one side is the story of the werewolf who runs away from his woman to avoid killing her, but she (like an horny moron) follows him wanting to get laid. thusly she gets killed when she locks herself in the barn with him instead of running like hell.

    on the other hand the metaphor that Python gave makes pretty good sense too
