Songfacts®:

  • This is yet another song about werewolves by Sonata Arctica. This song is about humans destroying the werewolf species. A few werewolves are lucky to escape only to live in hiding the rest of their lives. Eventually the "leader" of the group decides to frighten the humans in revenge only to revive the werewolf species. In the song they speak of their past and about what the humans had done to them. They speak of their children teaching their young ones what they had learned from their elders. >>
