|Demon Hunter Week: Follow The Wolves|
Follow The Wolves: This song is for the outcasts- people that feel out of place in their home, school or anywhere else. It's a call for them to shed the rejection they feel, and to understand that there are people out there that DO understand them- us. They can align themselves with us, and forget the rest.
