Of Wolf And Man Lyrics - Metallica



Review The Song (61)


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 in 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 have been
Move swift, all senses clean
Earth's gift
Back to the meaning of wolf and man

Metallica and Disturbed SUCK!!!!! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/28/14

The fact that all of you are arguing about Metallica, saying they are the greatest metal band ever, and even so far as saying Disturbed is so great has such intense meaning to their songs proves that the majority of you are complete idiots or just like to argue about something regardless of whether it's valid or not. Metallica WAS the greatest metal band ever until sometime between Black album and ReLoad. After that...you wanna call it metal? And Disturbed being such a great band? Regurgitating the same formula that made them hit big and repeat it song after song for every album after? Not great musicianship at all. Maybe Draiman wrote good lyrics, I never gave a fuck to read them. Disturbed is the most bullshit "metal" band that exists. I liked the first album, but when they prove theyre a bunch of record label tools and repeating the same formula instead of writing real music like real musicians do and have something different to offer and wow their fans with each and every album and some bands do it with every damn song....fuck Metallica and their abercrombie and fitch bags and Disturbed and that despicable excuse for a "new" project called "Device" that is just an excuse for that fag to do another Disturbed album to keep the money rolling in.

Maybe... | Reviewer: Nobody | 4/28/13

Maybe the song really is about shapshifters, and maybe some do roam while the rest of us sleep. To quote a line from another song "careful what you wish, you may regret it, careful what you wish, you just might get it"

stfu kids of the interwebs who seemingly know nothing | Reviewer: thisguy | 12/26/12

you are all stupid this wasnt based off of something they saw.none of it.most their songs are written about james's emotions and how he feels about something (being that he is the one that writes them) that little 15 yr old kid near the top can shut his mouth about knowing shit about metallica just cause a genre is returning to glory does not make you any smarter about a band of that genre which i might add metallica doesnt REALLY have a genre, they are their own thing, they are metal,rock,country,everything.they just come out with what sounds good.yeah some songs probably are based off of something they saw but they have over 100 songs.with master of puppets they started with the title and went from there. what comes to mind when you hear "master of puppets" ok. thats why their songs are fucking legendary and not just great like other bands.they are james's soul translated into sound and that is the one thing everyone understands. james's childhood fucked with his head and thats where the music comes from.dont analyse their songs,just listen to the song and take what you get and feel what you feel and leave it at that.

About Hunting | Reviewer: Jon | 10/25/12

So yes there is a deeper meaning. The guy who wrote the song is a avid bow hunter.

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

This song rocks! | Reviewer: Nergui | 1/23/12

"fang", what are you on?! This song is not saying society is a wolf pack, it's the opposite; humans are "devolving", getting weaker and more addled with our scientific "innovations" and the "call of the wild" in the wolf is what we should heed, straighten out, strengthen up, and stop painting everything 1,000,000 shades of gray.

you guys are dumbasses | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/4/12

Alright look idiots. Im fifteen and know more bout Metallica than all you. And the matrix sucked balls so ya. But Metallica is one of the biggest bands in the world regardless the world is going back to metal its coming back, the long hair, the guitar players, the guitarist the wanna be Eddie Van Halen because of his solo (Eruption) all that it's coming back. Now you listen to me Metallica has had probably more deaths in a crowd than any band beside slipknot lol. You dont know how many people die during a huge concert. For instance the good 80s Guns N Roses, Slash said "I remember watching people jump off balconies during the Paradise City solo, and die by the time they landed on people." I didn't make that shit up read his book dammit. Well that's my point...

Lol at copy fag | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/17/11

"For all those who are stupid enough to continue to deny the realistic and somewhat blatent point made by the song, I'll borrow some lyrics from slipknot [ironically I might add] "(people are monsters with) Catastrophic boredom with a fanatical devotion to that witch DOES NOT MATTER!----Where are your saviors now? Where are your gods and politicians? Where is your shame and salvation?----- THIS IS THE FUTURE YOU CREATED! THIS IS THE WORLD YOU HAVE SET ABLAZE!" while we continue to further our Tech' we destroy and desicrate everything. We have made it to where homo sapiens sapiens [yes its supposed to be like that] stop resembling mammals. Mammals eventualy reach a balance with nature, but we continue to spread and grow. Thats right people. Homo Sapiens Sapiens has developed into a multi-celled Virus."

Wicked sick copy from the Matrix bro. You just switched around the words somewhat.

Excellent | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/6/11

A considerable number of Metallica songs do have fairly elaborated lyrics, even above average elaboration. This can be noticed on many albums, "Metallica" being one of such great examples of fine mental elaboration. This can actually be noticed as the band progresses and evolves along the years. They gradually increase their focus and social awareness. If you can't figure that out then you did not witness this evolution, most likely you have not evolved yourself. Perhaps you should stick to listening to the fine tunes and lip syncing the songs. Should be good enough for most of the people, anyways...

and..?? | Reviewer: aimee | 7/31/11

Metallica is about the music not hidden meanings.. stop over analysing shit you dont understand.. i dont care if they sat in a garage and smoked meth all day while writing.. i dont give a shit.. i love them and there songs reguardless.. <3

the title | Reviewer: nobody | 6/28/11

Any 1 who thinks that metallica just wrote this song off a movie is a closed minded fool, a band as good as metallica doesnt write a song with no meaning, for example, (an odd one, but hear me out) Distubed's song "innocence", has intence meaning.

blatant meaning | Reviewer: anonymous | 6/26/11

"""came from a movie | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/1/11

they probably just saw a werewolf movie and thought hey lets wright a song about wolves, thats how Mr.Crowley was written, Ozzy just saw a deck of tarrot cards and thought hey Alister Crowley made those, and thats how that song was made, I mean come Metallica is usually drunk so I doubt they had a deep meaning to the song"""

came from a movie and has now meaning what so ever i find that hard to believe being as how there master of puppets album was one massive meaning with 7 individual separate meanings and as previously stated there all about how humanity has evolved to de-evolve.

Of Wolf and Bad Ass | Reviewer: robert wilson | 2/10/11

1. This song is about werewolves. Being able to write a song about werewolves and have it actually sound badass is a feat in itself.

2. There is some subtle meaning behind the lyrics but I wouldn't go over board. The song suggests that we as humans are in primitive nature and have characteristics such as those assoicated with werewolves...

3. Metallica is able to make the connection between the two in such a way that only truely talented musicians could portray...their interpretation is what clearly makes them one of the greatest metal bands of all time...

Of wolf and man | Reviewer: Raven | 2/3/11

"In wildness is the preservation of the world", that says it, think about the conveniences and technology today. We're only getting further and further from nature. we are all a part of it wether we like it or not. Yet many of us have no instinct left and couldn't possibly survive if it came down to it. I know I will, I hunt, therefore I am!
To the guy calling it all rubbish...your name is what you will be!
