(44’s lycanthrope lyrics)

I wake up at the end of a long dark lonely year

it’s bringing out the worst in me

I hear your voice start breaking in fear

when the lights go down

and I still feel you looking over my shoulder

your sinking guilt and approaching nightmare

and I know none of us will survive

cause I know everything

and my dear I need you to move a little faster

the second cast is the rest of your life

your final word and an itchy finger

then it’s taken away

and we’ll be beaten down without mercy or meaning

I turn my face to a careless skyline

I’m searching hard for a sign from heaven

but they’ve forgotten me here

you can just stop talking I get it

(I hear your silence loud and clear)

I know its barely a thought, but it’ll see us through

I’m only saying please to just let it happen

(let it happen and we’ll make it through)

you can just stop talking I get it

sex, fuck and flourescent lighting

a hollow point on an angry bullet

we’re on the teeth of a crocadile

we’re in the mouth of a gun

and sometimes at night I feel I’m just a broken vessel

an instrument with a darker purpose

I’m at the throat of the young and the helpless

cause they’ve got nothing to say

you can just stop talking I get it

(I hear your silence loud and clear)

I know its barely a thought, but it’ll see us through

I’m only saying please to just let it happen

(let it happen and we’ll make it through)

you can just stop talking I get it

you can just stop talking i get it

(I hear your silence loud and clear)

I know its barely a thought, but it’ll see us through

I’m only saying please to just let it happen

(let it happen and we’ll make it through)

you can just stop talking I get it

I’m searching hard for a sign from heaven

but they’ve forgotten me here

I wake up at the end of a long dark lonely year

it’s bringing out the worst in me

I hear your voice start breaking in fear

when the lights go down

and I still feel you looking over my shoulder

and I know none of us will survive

+44 (Plus 44) was a band formed from some of the members of American Band Blink 182, Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker. Plus 44, a punk/rock/alt/emo band in 2006 debuted with an album titled:
When Your Heart Stops Beating.
Track #1 on the debut album is titled, Lycanthrope.

More often you find books or movies titled lycan but not so often do we come across a song plus Lycanthrope for the title of a track.
After reading the lyrics to the song  it seems like there is no real lycanthrope theme that surfaces. The treatment of the lyrics does leave us to wonder why a real song would be titled Lycanthrope and not have a direct meaning to the legends themselves.

So if the song has nothing to do with lycans then what exaclty was the thought behind the title for their track?

Maybe Mark Hoppus or Travis Barker would be kind enough to answer, why is track #1 titled Lycanthrope ?
