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? (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 smell 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, 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

Quite the alarmist that you are
To have worried 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 fast enough to lose them
Or will they catch you?

Well 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 tonight, they have heard your cry
No one will believe you, no place to hide
The wolves are coming out tonight to eat you alive

    While "illuminaudio" does have the supernatural/fairy tales (werewolves, zombies, fanthom of the opera and etc. ) as a main theme, i think here it's a metaphor for a person who angered everyone by attention-seeking tricks and now, when they're really needing help -noone's coming .

    The whole illuminaudio album is based on the supernatural. Modern wolf hair is clearly about werewolves, while approaching and remaking the age old fairy tale "the boy who cried wolf".

    Its kind of a re-write of the boy who cryed wolf. He lyed but then they screamed so long and loud that no one answered but the wolfes heaurd her and ate her under the moon
