lyrics

There was a time I was a proud
and loyal member of the pack
But lies and plots, the hostile rush
hurt deeper than the sharpest fang

I can’t see my way (the lights are low)
I’m nothing but a wolf astray
too far away from home
These years of rain have drowned my soul
I just wander around alone

Frail and rejected, skin on bones
I could not make it on my own
Sunshine painfully burns my scars and blinds my eyes
I flee the day as they flee as I pass
But I’ve got used to the night and the dark
I don’t need more light but what is offered by the stars

I can’t see my way (the lights are low)
I’m nothing but a wolf astray
too far away from home
These years of rain have drowned my soul
I just wander around alone

And so the steppenwolf had two natures, a human one and a wolfish one.
In him the man and the wolf did not go the same way together, but were in continual and deadly enmity
This was his fate, and it may well be, that it was not a very exceptional one
One existed simply and solely to harm the other
And when there are two in one blood and in one soul who are at deadly enmity...
then life fares ill
Well, to each his lot… and none is light.

Deep within my feral heart
what’s remaining of the man
What’s remaining of the man?

But now I chase a prey (the moonlight’s strong)
I hail and howl, the night awakes
to lead the prodigal sons
I see her face, a silver sun
taking care of her lost hounds
