"Beast" lyrics - ALDOUS HARDING


Who took that bone to the beast?
Who led it back to grace and gave it fire for its feast?
Who took that bone to the beast?
Now it lies breathing peacefully
All hope lies underneath

Why breed a boy for his meat
To teach the child cruel rituals of ruin to repeat?
Why leave a heart in the heat
'Till the marble bath that held the truth lies broken at your feet?

Bring me a man who is sweet
A quiet son of whom intends to never taste defeat
For I've seen a soul drag its feet
And come to rest inside a life with nothing left to eat
