Track Name: Beast (stay hungry)
Growing to be just like the other one
So concerned with the patterns of the pretty one
Move like Dorothy my dear
Shoes of red and a heart of a fear

Moved in circles till you were in front of me
Trapped in you is just where I wanna be
Tell me, does it stay the same
Touching parts, playing games

Beast stay hungry
Soul stay angry
Wild, wild angels
Take me away
Out of the dust and into the clay

Trapped inside your thoughts of the pretty one
Racing backwards, trying to find a little sun
But the days, they pass so slow
And the moon so heavy when you’re on your own

I looked inside the life of a tired man
Trying to find his ride to the other side
But he gave up hope and he missed his chance
Now it breaks his heart to see Dorothy Dance

Beast stay hungry
Soul stay angry
Wild, wild angels
Take me away
Out of the dust and into the clay
Track Name: Wish The Wild Away
I awoke in a shameful way
On a Summer’s day
That had betrayed the rain
I could feel you, breathe you
Holding me tight
Stealing my light

I don’t love you but I’m lonely
You go to church but you’re not holy
Oh the habits of men
I don’t need you but I know you
And it is all the same
No fire, no flame

We move on in a loveless haze
All the words you say
All this pointless praise
Makes me crave your validation,
Our fear of isolation
Is closing us in

I don’t love you but I’m lonely
You go to church but you’re not holy
Oh the habits of men
I don’t need you but I know you
And it is all the same
No fire, no flame

We stroke the fear and hope for rest
We wish the wild away
But it won’t go
She‘s found her home
In a city full of birdless skies
We miss the sound
We full it with our cries
We dream of being alive

I don’t love you but I’m lonely
You go to church but you’re not holy
Oh the habits of men
I don’t need you but I know you
And it is all the same
No fire, no flame

In this game, the circle remains
And so we play
Though we’d really like to get it away
It won’t be today
We’re not that brave
Track Name: Amy, I'm Lost
Amy’s here tonight
I’m exhausted
She’s in red and white
A phoenix bound for flight
Always hoped I’d be
Less in need of flattery and lights
a body drenched in night

I’d understand
Even worse
I wouldn’t even fight
I’d simply step aside
How my insides crawl
Could it be I’m the skin that warms your needs
But the stranger in your dreams.

I’m lost,
I’m tired
Amy, he’s yours
I’m trying
But I

I fell today
Fed the fear that covers her in grace
Frames the beauty of her ways
How he’d sing for you
He would move you the way he always does
The devil and the dove

I'm lost
I'm tired
Amy, he's yours
I'm trying
But I

I tried so hard to force it down,
a look, a pill, a thought
I swallow soft, a deathly cough awakes me from my sleep
Bathed in grey, a forced embrace
I held your hand too tight
You the dreamer, you the mystery, you the holy liar
The heat unbinds, the sweat reminds her
she’s swimming in her flaws
Graceless lady, soaked in maybes
Drowning in her shameless cause

This fragile thing
How I’ve used it
spun it round my mind till the thread is worn and tired
This human sting
Amy’s painting
The portrait that I’ve seen
the woman that you need
Track Name: Bird of Prey
In the backseat while gently teasing
A bird of prey lures her victims
Pain out and into the night
In this windy city you’ll see the siren take flight

We will fly to the masquerade ball
And pretend we belong as we dance to the song of a parakeet
Stringing us along
With his new old guitar
So we won’t feel too far from home

Sharpen your bayonet
This isn’t over yet
A sweet assault, a gentle revolt, hypnotized
By a stranger who’ll make you forget that you’re married to time

Come down to the river tonight
Three queens will be there
Bearing gifts, unaware that you’re not alone
Your heart has been marked
The wild beast has chosen her feast

From a lifetime of sorrow I fled
Just to follow her voice
The voice in my head as I lay alone
In my bones
I could feel her embrace
Pulling me so far from home

Sharpen your bayonet
This isn’t over yet
A sweet assault, a gentle revolt, hypnotized
By a stranger who’ll make you forget that you’re married to time

No tears boy
You paid for the ride
Best do what you’re told, as this crime unfolds
You will understand
When you thought you were the muse
You were simply
This story’s interlude
Track Name: Cable Loose Balloon
You arrived so slow and so steady
How was I to know
I’d let you get to me
I tried to tell my mind
This is just a trick
Just a poetic slip
Please don't say stay

'Cause I’m a cable-loose balloon
And I’ll never choose
I’ll simply be blown by the wind
Never knowing
Where I am going

I have fought to see your face
Then I have run from your embrace
And I will never stop trying
To find what it means to be free
Please don't say stay

'Cause I’m a cable-loose balloon
And I’ll never choose
I’ll simply be blown by the wind
Never knowing
Where I am going
