Claw & Tooth

from by Jamie B Sings

lyrics

The unbidden guest,
A ghost at the banquet
A pale reflection of a life seemingly outgrown
Filled not just with joy
Not just with sorrow
Not just with pain, but with beauty
Stripped to the bare bones

As the comfortable delusion
Gives way to disillusioned
Cold, hard truth
And, dispossessed of cataracts
A reassessing of the facts
Forensic case of dog eat dog,
Claw and tooth

This ship has sailed
How very final
A primal push to leave me overboard,
Marooned

Decorum failed, loyalties lost
As the wound becomes the scar,
Becomes the wound

As the comfortable delusion
Gives way to disillusioned
Cold, hard truth
And, dispossessed of cataracts
A reassessing of the facts
Forensic case of dog eat dog,
Claw and tooth

Well the siren song will reel you in,
You keel, then kneel, then reel in sin
Until the throes are over, you stay blind
So own your failings, I'll do the same
In claw and tooth, there is no blame
'Cause I'm no better
These are all projections of my mind...
