They saw you today as you were leaving
Now they run to hunt you down
Dogs lead the chase and you are bleeding
They run to hunt you down

Your narrow escape
Has wiped the smile right from your face
Those starved dogs howling
Run to hunt you down
As they run, hunt you down

You smile as you look in the mirror
Tears have left your eyes
Your face has a different exterior
Permanent disguise

Your narrow escape
Has wiped the smile right from your face
Those starved dogs howling
Run to hunt you down
As they run, hunt you down right now
Right now, right now, right now, right now, right now

    General CommentSounds a lot like School by Nirvana, though I'm sure you all can hear that

    General CommentHoly shit nobody has said anything interesting about this song. To me, "hunted down" is a perfect example of a grunge song. It's intense and seriously energizing... Awesome song.

    General CommentEarly grunge at its finest. It paints a vivid picture of entrapment and escape.

    Nirvana's "School" does sound somewhat similar, though it was released 2 years after Hunted Down.

    General CommentThis song is great. I used it on a trailer on youtube for a film me and my friends were making about a guy who was literally hunted down.

    General CommentI think this is about someone nieve who gets themselves in a situation they can't get out of. Someone who thought they were being really clever and ended up becoming the victim.
