Singled Out: Ghostfeeder's Let The Wolves Inside.


Ghostfeeder recently release a new album entitled World Fameless and to celebrate we asked Derek Walborn to tell us the story behind the track "Let The Wolves Inside." Here is the story:

Let The Wolves Inside is delivered from the perspective of someone who is eager to say the right things, make the right moves, and do whatever they can to use your fears to their advantage. Using people's anxieties and base, emotionally-charged impulses against them is rule number one when it comes to getting someone to allow you to manipulate them.

The most cunning con artists don't force themselves onto people, but rather set them up in such a way that they actually invite them in and are more than happy to do so. They will offer salvation. They will tell people things that they were already thinking but were too afraid to say, and it can be very therapeutic to hear someone else vocalize something that they have kept hidden away whether from shame or fear of the social repercussions of speaking their mind. They will make the victim feel that they have the power right up until they pull out the rug.

It's very easy to be seduced by the wolves under the right circumstances, and no one is really immune. It just takes the right wolf with the right words.

I found it a lot more interesting to approach the song from the angle of the wolf and not the victim. Becoming a character for a song is something I have enjoyed lately, and the creepy, sneaky-sounding vibe of the song didn't really lend itself to a woe-is-me narrative.

The fact that people, both politically and personally, can be convinced so often to act against their own best interests because of the power of their fear is a really terrifying concept to me.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
