"The Hunger" as written by and Tim Skold....
This town ain't big enough for both of us
And it's not me who's gonna leave
There's not enough here for the two of us
It doesn't matter what you think

There can't be a rapture without sin

You get what you're waiting for hold on
When the darkness creeps in
You get what you're longing for so long
When the night closes in and the hunger begins

The story seems to want to write itself but
We're running out of ink
The ending credits are rolling by but
The silly cast don't want to leave

There can't be a rapture without sin

You get what you're waiting for hold on
When the darkness creeps in
You get what you're longing for so long
When the night closes in and the hunger begins

So now you see it, now you don't
And this is everything you could want
But now you see it, now you don't
You know you should hold on but you won't

You get what you're waiting for hold on
When the darkness creeps in
You get what you're longing for so long
When the night closes in and the hunger begins

    General CommentLyrics taken straight from the album booklet.
    Skold said this about the song:
    "Thematically, it is about the pleasure of suffering and the suffering of pleasure. Those two, sitting in a tree… I like to write for the listeners imagination, more like conjuring a story rather than straight out telling it."
