Full Moon In October

from Creature Feature (album) by The Goths



Full Moon In October dates from 1989, materializing out of the wolf man idiom and to some extent following the werewolf legend yet entertaining a somewhat irreverent sense of humor. The creative impulse arose from viewing a full moon one October night, which then became the title. Lyrics were playfully built around this, using a loose werewolf theme. With no specific literary or cinematic signpost, Full Moon In October isn't so much a story as a comic snapshot of life as the wolf man.


It’s a Full Moon in October
And the wolf is on the prowl
To engage in mortal blood-lust
May he find another hound
The wolf’s becoming hairy
He's in the cemetery
Down at the monastery
He’d like a Bloody Mary
The dream keeps on recurring
When the sun settles down
A victim will be bitten
Before the moon has done its round
He’s a misanthropic lycanthrope
Six hundred and sixty six
Transit Transylvania
The beast is gonna mix
The wolf’s becoming hairy
He’s in the cemetery
Down at the monastery
He’d like a Bloody Mary
But Mary’s very wary as
Circumstances varied
And answered any query
He's on the howl again
