"Hollow Moon (Bad Wolf)" as written by Daniel Nakamura and Aaron Bruno....
I’ve been running from it all my lifetime
There’s nothing wrong with you, I’m searching for my right mind
Oh, you should’ve seen it they were resting on the restless
This happened, literally, woke up I was headless
I woke up I was headless

Ah
I'm-a make a deal with the bad wolf
So the bad wolf don’t bite no more
I'm-a make a deal with the bad wolf
So the bad wolf don’t bite no more
I'm-a make a deal with the bad wolf
So the bad wolf don’t bite no more
I'm-a make a deal with the bad wolf
So the bad wolf don’t bite no more
I'm-a make a I'm-a make a bad wolf I'm-a I'm-a
Bad wolf I'm-a make a bad wolf I'm-a I'm-a
I'm-a make a deal with the bad wolf
So the bad wolf don’t bite no more

(You’re all still here)

Motherfucker I’ll be back from the dead soon
I’ll be watching from the center of the hollow moon
Oh my God I think I might’ve made a mistake
Waiting patiently was waiting taking up space
We are waiting taking up space

Ah
I'm-a make a deal with the bad wolf
So the bad wolf don’t bite no more
I'm-a make a deal with the bad wolf
So the bad wolf don’t bite no more
I'm-a make a deal with the bad wolf
So the bad wolf don’t bite no more
I'm-a make a deal with the bad wolf
So the bad wolf don’t bite no more
I'm-a make a I'm-a make a bad wolf I'm-a I'm-a
Bad wolf I'm-a make a bad wolf I'm-a I'm-a
I'm-a make a deal with the bad wolf
So the bad wolf don’t bite no more

The earth below is above my feet when the clock is laughing at me
When copy cats and the lazy brats are the last thing I want to see
No, my enemy is a friend of mine in a friendly place to be seen
Hey, you know I'd run away for a couple years just to prove I’ve never been free

They will never find me here!
They will never find me here!
They will never find me here!
They will never find me here, yeah!

I'm-a make a deal with the bad wolf
So the bad wolf don’t bite no more
I'm-a make a deal with the bad wolf
So the bad wolf don’t bite no more
I'm-a make a deal with the bad wolf
So the bad wolf don’t bite no more
I'm-a make a deal with the bad wolf
So the bad wolf don’t bite no more
I'm-a make a deal with the bad wolf
So the bad wolf don’t bite no more
I'm-a make a deal with the bad wolf
So the bad wolf don’t bite no more
I'm-a make a deal with the bad wolf
So the bad wolf don’t bite no more
I'm-a make a deal with the bad wolf
So the bad wolf don’t bite no more

    General CommentThis is just a guess but maybe he's saying he used to try to avoid bad things in his life rather than deal with them (I've been running from it all my lifetime, Ima make a deal with the bad wolf so the bad wolf won't bite no more) but now he's going to try to embrace the bad things in life and accept them (I'd run away for a couple years just to prove I've never been free, my enemy is a friend of mine in a friendly place to be seen)

    My InterpretationThe bad wolf is his fears in life. I'm gonna make a deal with the bad wolf so the bad wolf don't bite no more is like saying I'm going to make a deal with the devil but he is looking at the devil as a fairytale.. something that doesn't exist, so the fairytale would be the wolf like red riding hood and the three little pigs. I didn't understand the hollow moon part so I googled hollow moon, hollow moon is a theory that the moon is hollow and doesn't have a thin crust in the center like earth does. People who believe the moon is hollow believe that aliens built the moon with heavy machinery and set it to revolve around earth. He says "I'll be watching from the center of the hollow moon" , he's either saying that he fills alienated from society or that he's in a whole other world that we don't know about yet and can't comprehend. I also get some sort of dream sequence vibe from this song from the lines "you're all still here" ,"Motherfucker I'll be back from the dead soon" , and "they will never find me here" - it seems like he's either "searching for his right mind" or he has gone nuts, crazy, either that or he is having some sort of dream sequence but great song!

    My InterpretationAgree with Something Cool. I saw Bruno quoted as telling a reporter that the song "reflected his struggle with making Run." but he refused to elaborate (i think that's a very smart move for an artist). To me, I thought the song seemed to suggest a person in essence "giving in" to that part of his behavior that contributes to destructive tendencies, with all of the things that plague a person's inner self being the "bad Wolf." when i say giving in, i mean acknowledging. He's angry, because this has been going on for a long time (I've been running from it all my lifetime.") and he's telling the person who is listening (you) that one of the destructive tendencies is that he views the world as maybe moving too slowly for him, and this causes conflict and this is his attempt to show that he's trying (there's nothing wrong with you") but rather it's all him (i'm searching for my right mind"). The metaphors of a dream, a moon and a wolf conjure up stories like the "Bear Skinner" where the soldier sells their soul in a deal with the devil. I think also he is demonstrating his anger at not being approachable and maybe very introverted but he clearly sees that there is a path out of this ("I'll be back from the dead soon.). Not sure if the "motherfucker" is the same person he references in the first part of the song (there's nothing wrong with you). I think maybe he's the motherfucker and is willing himself to complete that part of the journey. I find this song really hits a cord for me, and probably for many people that feel that they have withdrawn (run away) and cannot relate to others (the copycats and the lazy brats). Fantastic album. I love the songs. I know that Awolnation was started as a side project - i hope the band continues to produce this type of art for a long, long time.
