WE WERE BORN BESIDE THIS RIVER

THERE ONCE WAS A TIME WHEN THE WOLF DIDN’T NEED TO HIDE;

HE BOLDLY RAN WITH A LARGER PACK, STEALTH WAS ON HIS SIDE.

WHEN WOLVES WERE BORN BESIDE THE RIVER
THEY FILLED THE NIGHT WITH SONG!;

AS ALPHA, HE WAS WORTHY OF THE CLANS’ RESPECT AND FAITH;
THEY DID NOT QUESTION HIS AUTHORITY, THEY KNEW HE’D KEEP THEM SAFE!

“THIS IS WHERE OUR FOREFATHERS LIVED THIS IS WHERE THE WOLF BELONGS!”
“WE WERE BORN BESIDE THIS RIVER, AND WE FILL THE NIGHT WITH SONG!”

“OUR PREY KNOW THE RULES, WOLVES KILL ONLY TO SURVIVE,
WE ARE ALL PART IN THE CIRCLE OF LIFE AND ITS’ GRAND DESIGN!”

‘THIS WILDERNESS HAS BEEN OUR HUNTING GROUND, SINCE THE BEGINNING OF TIME.,

THE CARETAKERS OF ALL WITHIN, AND WE MANAGE IT WITH PRIDE!”

“ALAS, A NEW PREDATOR HAS INFILTRATED OUR DOMAIN;
HIS BLOODLUST KNOWS NO BOUNDARIES, HE KILLS OUR KIND IN VAIN!”

“HIS METHODS ARE UNETHICAL, CALCULATING, RUTHLESS AND CRUEL!
HE USES WEAPONRY MADE OF STEEL, HE DOES NOT FOLLOW ANY RULE!”

“HOW DO I PROTECT MY FAMILY FROM THIS EVIL THREAT?
WHERE CAN WE RUN TO ESCAPE THIS PAINFUL DEATH?”

“WE ARE WOLVES, MASTERS OF OUR OWN DESIGN,
BUT IN THE END OUR ONLY HOPE IS TO HIDE TO STAY ALIVE!
“I PRAY TO ALL THAT’S SACRED, MAN, SEES THE TRUTH IN TIME!”
