"Furr" by Blitzen Trapper / by laurel

Yeah, when I was only seventeen
I could hear the angels whispering
So I drove into the woods and wandered aimlessly about
until I heard my mother shouting through the fog
It turned out to be the howling of a dog
or a wolf to be exact,
the sound sent shivers down my back
But I was drawn into the pack and before long
they allowed me to join in and sing their song

So from the cliffs and highest hill,
yeah, we would gladly get our fill
howling endlessly and shrilly at the dawn
And I lost the taste for judging right from wrong
For my flesh had turned to fur, yeah,
and my thoughts they surely were
turned to instinct and obedience to God

You can wear your fur like a river on fire but you'd better be sure, if you're making God a liar
I'm a rattlesnake babe, I'm like fuel on a fire
So if you're gonna get made don't be afraid of what you learn

On the day that I turned twenty-three,
I was curled up underneath the dogwood tree
When suddenly a girl, her skin the color of a pearl
she wandered aimlessly but she didn't seem to see
She was listening for the angels just like me
So I stood and looked about,
I brushed the leaves off of my snout
and then I heard my mother shouting through the trees
You should have seen that girl go shaky at the knees
So I took her by the arm, we settled down upon a farm
and raised our children up as gently as you please

And now my fur has turned has turned to skin
and I've been quickly ushered in
to a world that I confess I do not know
But I still dream of running careless through the snow
Through the howling winds that blow across the ancient distant flow
that fill our bodies up with water till we know

And you can wear your fur like a river on fire
but you'd better sure if you're making God a liar
I'm a rattlesnake, babe, I'm like fuel on a fire
So if you're gonna get made,
don't be afraid of what you've learned

I think this describes every guy I know, from the age of 17 till 30.
