"Waiting for the Wolves" as written by and Ian Lewis Kenny Adam John Spark....
Tell me when are you coming home? Are you alone?
Bitten by the hand that feeds your house, your home
You've been waiting for the wolves to come and finish you

Show a little fake, a smile and waltz on through
You're here to entertain the world but they won't change you
You try to spit another line as your teeth fall out
Choking up on every word they just won't come out

Tell me when are you coming home? Are you alone?
Bitten by the hand that feeds your house, your home

So you think you've made you mark and they know you now
Dropping every name around in the coolest crowds
They're telling you you're number one' yeah you wear it well
Underneath the scales and skin it's just sell sell sell

Tell me when are you coming home? Are you alone?
Bitten by the hand that feeds your house, your home
You've been waiting foe the wolves to come and finish you
You've been waiting for the truth to spell out the end of you

    General CommentOn the surface I think the theme of this song came from a loved-one of the lyricist, waiting for him to come back from tour. "They're telling you you're number one" and "Underneath the scales and skin it's just sell sell sell" are references to the music industry, and Birds Of Tokyo's success.
    However the second verse is the true emotion behind this song: "You're here to entertain the world but they won't change you" etc. as well as the repeated line "You've been waiting for the truth to spell out the end of you" I believe indicate that the song is about throwing yourself into a passion, even a love, but even if you're the biggest rockstar in the world, it won't give you the meaning of life, it won't actually help your head, no matter how long you wait and how much you surrender yourself to something you happen to be good at. As much as we love Birds of Tokyo and their music helps us with our issues, we can't actually help the lyricist with his issues, no matter how much we love him. Unless of course, you are the lyricists loved one in which case you ask them to come home, to be with loved ones rather than abandoning your health, head, well-being to angst (and performance).
