The Beast Lyrics

05 The Beast

 

Where did our love go you will never know

How did you get home you will never know

Did you catch yourself in the mirror

It's a sight I understand

You consider it all for a second

And put it down to slight of hand

 

You know I've been running 'round for hours

 

Calling my Egyptian blood to bear me flowers

Calling Sophia goddess of power

 

Instead I got the beast

And tonight he lies with me

Tonight he lies with me

Tonight he lies with me

And here come the beast

 

You're okay now I suppose

You're not pulled by the rope

I'm pulled by the pull on my throat

 

I'm pulled by the rope

I swing from the trees into the slope

Hold my head high just by the tip of my toes

And he lies he lies so sweet that I choke

 

Tonight I choose the beast

Tonight he lies with me

Tonight he lies with me

Tonight he lies with me

And here come the beast

 

Put your eyes away

 

If you can't bear to see your old lady

Laying down next to the beast

Tonight he lies with me

Tonight he lies with me

And here come the beast

 

Look at yourself in the mirror

It's a sight I understand

You consider it all for a second

And put it down to slight of hand

I give you the best the best that I can

 

I'd suggest that you be grateful

There's no blood on my hands

And assume yourself weaker the fall of man

 

And look out for the beast

Tonight he lies with me

Tonight he lies with me

Tonight he lies with me

And here come the beast

 

Put your eyes away

If you can't bear to see your old lady

Laying down next to the beast

Tonight he lies with me

Tonight he lies with me

 

And here come the beast
