Running Like a Man

lyrics

Crack, this is the light burning my eyes
Now I have sight, I am alive
Mum's blood on me sticks muddily
She licks me clean, now I am neat
I was a dream growing unseen
Fed by a cord, chewed off and gnawed
When I'm alone night's noises grow
Mum's milk is home wherever we roam
Fences and gates keep the deer safe
Go for a race, sweat on my face

I'm running like a man, running like a man
Running like a man, like a man running

Crack, growth through my brain, I'm not the same
Burning again, growing in pain
Horns in my head, hungry yet fed
Sleepless in bed, fighting's ahead

Mum's now meat or glue from her feet
Fences built to keep out sin, fences built to keep you in

Noticing deer who I want near
If I run free then maybe she'll see me

Running like a man, running like a man
Running like a man, like a man running

I won't wait for factory fate
Fences built to keep out sin, fences built to keep you in

Crack, fences can break, I will escape
Stones underfoot I run and then look

I'm running like a man, running like a man
Running like a man, like a man running

Crack, shots through my brain, I'm not the same
Burning again, rolling in pain
This is the light burning my eyes
Losing my sight, losing my life
My blood on me sticks muddily
Mum licks me clean, now I am neat
