"Hunter Eats Hunter" as written by Peter Loeffler and Samuel Loeffler....
I grabbed a flashlight, just like I always do
A damp sorta night, and now I'm telling you, well
I saw a pair of eyes, and I'm sure they saw me too
Don't never never run, hell yes I'm going too

How long should I feel like bait now?
Wide open, careful where the mind goes
Moonlight, a superstitious glow
If it's my time, well I'm going out alone

You ever tried to hold your breath?
Well here's a tip, don't follow through
You feel the nightmares never end
And now it seems it's coming true
No one should see what I can see
It's up to you with weakened knees
That little creep just grabbed my arm
It's gonna be the longest night

How long should I feel like bait now?
Wide open, careful where the mind goes
Moonlight, a superstitious glow
If it's my time, well I'm going out alone

Alone, alone, alone

Night, you're a friend of mine, another family
Better not divide, any, armed, with its beastly doom
I'll beat this jackal down, this interference ends
Send it back beyond

When hunter, meets hunter, this hunter, eats hunter
When hunter, meets hunter, this hunter, eats hunter

How long should I feel like bait now?
Wide open, careful where the mind goes
Moonlight, a superstitious glow
If it's my time, well I'm going out alone

If it's my time
Well I'm going out alone

If it's my time
Well I'm going out alone

If it's my time
I'm going out alone

    My InterpretationHere is what I hear from this song.

    He ended up outside for whatever reason and saw the eyes of a predator (or hunter) and that predator can be whatever.

    Then it goes on to describe the fear. People say don't run, but that usually gets thrown out the window when you are actually in danger.

    You feel like bait because its just watching you, and you need to keep focused on the situation (careful where the mind goes).
    I'm not super sure on the final line of the chorus. Maybe its about ending up dying alone?

    Trying to hold your breath to be quiet or still, is harder than it seems. Don't try it.
    Then it describes the fear intensifying and then it appears the "Hunter" makes its move toward the guy (just grabbed my arm).

    Then, it sounds like to me, the guy realizes he's going to have to fight his way out of this. (I'll beat this jackal down) Send it back beyond meaning obviously to kill it.

    Then the showdown begins...
    "Hunter Meets Hunter"
    "Hunter Eats Hunter"

    That's how I think of it.
    This song is really great and intense.

    General CommentThis game reminds me so much of the game Bloodborne. LOL. I think that's the real meaning.
