Lyrics Edit

Strange blood in our veins -- too late we understand
Strength and size and long allegiance to the Elfling band.
Strange blood -- for its gifts the price at last comes due.
Strange lands and stranger duties has it brought us to!

Strange blood and its gifts we gained from long ago.
Shape-Changer gave us this, for cause we'll never know.
Strange blood and its wisdom long since changed our track;
Wherever it may lead us now, there is no turning back.

Strange blood! We are wolves, and we are something more.
Now it brings us endless wandering, hunger, rage and war.
Strange blood kept us fed and brought us help at need.
Now it draws us, by our blood, to go where others lead.

Strange blood! No regrets. We would not turn aside.
It brought us safely through the fire where all the others died.
Strange blood! Howl again, for now we know too well:
Better a friend on paths unknown than be alone in hell!
