Lyrics

    Off through the new day's mist I run
    Out from the new day's mist I have come
    
    I hunt
    Therefore I am
    Harvest the land
    Taking of the fallen lamb
    
    Off through the new day's mist I run
    Out from the new day's mist I have come
    
    We shift
    Pulsing with the Earth
    Company we keep
    Roaming the land while you sleep
    
         Shape shift
         Nose to the wind
         Shape shift
         Feeling I've been
         Move swift
         All senses clean
         Earth's gift
         Back to the meaning of life
    
    Bright is the moon high in starlight
    Chill is the air cold as steel tonight
    
    We shift
    Call of the wild
    Fear in your eyes
    It's later than you realized
    
         Shape shift
         Nose to the wind
         Shape shift
         Feeling I've been
         Move swift
         All senses clean
         Earth's gift
         Back to the meaning of life
    
    I feel a change
    Back to a better day
    Hair stands on the back of my neck
    In wildness is the preservation of the world
    So seek the wolf in thyself

         Shape shift
         Nose to the wind
         Shape shift
         Feeling I've been
         Move swift
         All senses clean
         Earth's gift
         Back to the meaning of wolf and man
