You yell my name,
But will I be coming?
Should I be running?
Should I believe in you?

You yell my name,
But will I be coming?
Should I be running?
Should I believe in you?

I've wasted all this time,
Trying to stand by your side.
The wolves are coming out tonight,
But they have heard your cry.

And no one will believe you now,
There's no place to hide,
And now the wolves that you have cried will eat you alive.

It's just you out in the field,
They're showing their teeth behind your back,
They're foaming at the mouth while they're waiting to attack.
Howlin' in your ears as they surround you,
They smelled you,
They feed off of your cry.

I've wasted all this time,
Trying to stand by your side.
The wolves are coming out tonight,
But they have heard your cry.

And no one will believe you now,
There's no place to hide,
And now the wolves that you have cried will eat you alive.

Eat you alive.

"To [something] the people"
Wipe that smile off your fucking face,
This is no laughing matter.

Under the moon,
They mark your cry,
With their howling at night,
Will you be faster to lose them?
Or will they catch you?
When you run for your life,
There's no way to hide your fear.

Run for your life.
You are the victim,
You are the bait,
You are the victim,
You are the bait.

I've wasted all this time,
Trying to stand by your side.
Wolves are coming out,
They have heard your cry.

No one will believe you,
No place to hide,
Wolves are coming out tonight to eat you alive.

    General CommentThe lyrics to this song are so not Chiodos.
    This song disappoints me.
    You can tell that the band is advancing, and they found a GREAT new singer.
    But when they lost Craig, they lost his beautiful lyrics.
    He wrote the best songs ever.
    I miss him dearly, and Chiodos will never be the same, but that doesn't mean they can't get better.
    Breakdown is sick, but the words...they just seem so plain to me.
    But, that's just my opinion.

    You have worried the people.
    You caused panic.
    Wipe that smile off your fucking face,

    General CommentYou guys are close, but here are the real lyrics. I got it from the CD booklet in case you're wondering:

    You yell my name,
    But will I be coming?
    Should I be running?
    Should I believe in you?

    You yell my name,
    But will I be coming?
    Should I be running?
    Should I believe in you?

    I've wasted all this time,
    Trying to stand by your side.
    The wolves are coming out tonight,
    For they have heard your cry.

    And no one will believe you now,
    There's no place to hide,
    And now the wolves that you have cried will eat you alive.

    It's just you out in the field,
    They're showing their teeth behind your back,
    They're foaming at the mouth while they're waiting to attack.
    Howling in your ears as they surround you,
    They smelled you,
    They feed off of your cry.

    I've wasted all this time,
    Trying to stand by your side.
    The wolves are coming out tonight,
    But they have heard your cry.

    And no one will believe you now,
    There's no place to hide,
    And now the wolves that you have cried will eat you alive.

    Eat you alive.

    Quite the alarmistthat you are to haveworried the people of the village.
    Wipe that smile off your fucking face,
    This is no laughing matter.

    Under the moon,
    They mock your cry,
    With their howling at night,
    Will you be faster to lose them?
    Or will they catch you?
    When you'll run for your life,
    There's nowhere to hide.
    And you'll flee...

    Run for your life.
    You are the victim
    You are the prey
    You are the victim
    You are the prey.

    I've wasted all this time,
    Trying to stand by your side.
    Wolves are coming out,
    They have heard your cry.

    No one will believe you,
    No place to hide,
    Wolves are coming out tonight to eat you alive.

    General CommentThe song is called "Modern Wolf Hair"
    Sounds a LOT like the video game, "[Call of Duty] Modern Warfare [2]"
    and in Call of Duty games, there is a killstreak reward where you call in dogs (this song could be using wolves instead)
    And in the game you are the victim, you are the bait, you have to run for your life, and there really is no where to escape them.
    I think this song is connecting some other meaning with Call of Duty.

    Song MeaningThis is about The Boy who Cried Wolf, not CoD.

    The boy is out tending to the sheep, and when he needs help, he cries "Wolf!" to get a villager to come help him, then says "false alarm, but could you help me with this?.." The villagers catch on fast, and ignore the boy. One night when the boy is tending to the sheep, wolves actually come, and the villagers ignore it.

    Hope this helped :]
