"Lycanthrope" as written by and Travis L/hoppus Barker....
I wake up at the end of a long, dark, gloomy year
It's bringing out the worst in me
I hear your voice start breaking in fear
When the lights go down

And I still feel you looking over my shoulder
Your sinking guilt and approaching nightmare
And I know none of us'll survive
Because I know everything

And my dear I need you to move a little faster
This second counts as the rest of your life
Your final word and an itchy finger
And then it's taken away

And we'll be beaten down without mercy or meaning
I turn my face to a careless skyline
I'm searching hard for a sign from heaven
But they've forgotten me here

You can just stop talking, I get it (I hear your silence loud and clear)
I know it's barely a thought but it'll see us through
I'm only setting you free so just let it happen (Let it happen, no need to fear)
Yeah you can just stop talking, I get it

Sex, fuck, and fluorescent lighting
A hollow point on an angry bullet
We're on the teeth of a crocodile
We're in the mouth of the gun

And sometimes at night I feel I'm just a broken vessel
An instrument with a darker purpose
I'm at the throat of the young and the helpless
Because they've got nothing to say

You can just stop talking, I get it (I hear your silence loud and clear)
I know it's barely a thought but it'll see us through
I'm only setting you free so just let it happen (Let it happen, no need to fear)
Yeah you can just stop talking, I get it

You can just stop talking, I get it (I hear your silence loud and clear)
I know it's barely a thought but it'll see us through
I'm only setting you free so just let it happen (Let it happen, no need to fear)
Yeah you can just stop talking, I get it

    General CommentFor some reason, the lines
    "And I know none of us will survive
    Because I know everything"
    Feel like Mark is talking about Tom, or rather +44 and blink182.
    I think he is talking as to how if thise "war, rage" continues, neither one of their new bands is going to survive. Like it's a deathmatch.

    General CommentOr it could be as the title suggests... about the life of being a werewolf. Duh.

    General CommentIt's about the aftermath of the hias of Blink and Tom. Like no it isn't.
    But it could be more how he experienced the last months. Hope not that the whole album is about the Blink break up and stuff

    General CommentAnother really good song from Plus 44. Had Mark hyped this up like Tom did Angels, it would certainly be a dissapointment. But due to the lack of hype... it's just really nice to hear some new music from Hoppus. Here's hoping this isn't the highlight of the disc however. Good song though

    General CommentLove this song... similar to blink, but at the same time kinda different... Love it how Craig screams in the song... Though it wasn't to noticeable it fit the song well

    General CommentVery different from Hoppus in my opinion, it sounds very similar to Motion City Soundtrack in some places I feel. Although I thought the lyrics were "Sex, fuck and fluorescent lighting" but whatever. Bring on November 14th!!
