lyrics

The first time we met it was methadone on a Monday morning walking slow; we were sharing a forty the rain was pouring. Stay with me and I will never let you go. Then you pulled me close, we were both on the run. Out on bail, out of state, all we had was each other. Two strays that wouldn’t have it any other way; another day another hustle, wishing I had a jacket to lay across these puddles. So we cuddle, keep ya close, body heat is keeping us alive, the will to survive is amplified with every look in to your eyes. We rolled the dice and let it ride. Roaming wild in the streets we’d never sleep.

Into the wild the calls are turning to screams so we evolve through the cycle until we turn back to beasts. To each their own until you’re left alone, no one left to share these dreams so they die with me.
Into the wild the calls are turning to screams so we evolve through the cycle until we turn back to beasts. To each their own until you’re left alone, no one left to share these dreams so they die with me.

Up and down Central it was motel after motel getting kicked out for the traffic no in-and-outs we knew the drill. We’d still the towels and blankets so if the next one wouldn’t take us in we’d have a place to stay we’d lay together hand in hand.
The daylight would come another run the sun is burning our face, we’d need a taste to win the morning battle with the shakes, more and more it starts to take. Not enough so I give mine up it kills me to have to see you this way.

Into the wild the calls are turning to screams so we evolve through the cycle until we turn back to beasts. To each their own until you’re left alone, no one left to share these dreams so they die with me.
Released by the wild then returned to the streets, lost in all in the fire that’s been burning beneath. It’s impossible to know where to ever go so we close our eyes and hope we fall asleep.

Our days were getting longer as the pain was getting stronger, veins collapsing as your asking me to save you from withdrawals. We’re out of tricks and out of treats you need a fix I need to sleep I tried to make you eat you throw it up you’re getting weak. Our days were getting longer as the pain was getting stronger, veins collapsing as your asking me to save you from withdrawals. We’re out of tricks and out of treats you need a fix I need to sleep I tried to make you eat you throw it up you’re getting weak.


Into the wild the calls are turning to screams so we evolve through the cycle until we turn back to beasts. To each their own until you’re left alone, no one left to share these dreams so they die with me.
Released by the wild then returned to the streets, lost in all in the fire that’s been burning beneath. It’s impossible to know where to ever go so we close our eyes and hope we fall asleep.

How long can this go on for, we were fading fast, it was us against the world still believe that we can last. Never gave up hope we had each other we were fine. Together we can cope but hunger’s growing in the lion. The roar was getting loud you asked me how to make it stop. I surrendered everything for a chance to turn it off. Swallowed by exhaustion we were running from ourselves, throwing caution to the wind so we can spin in carousels. Round and round we went getting harder to digest. They found us hypnotized went from guided to possessed. We need a pit stop so the chance is worth the risk. Helpless to suggestion we’re surrounded in its den.

Into the wild the calls are turning to screams so we evolve through the cycle until we turn back to beasts. To each their own until you’re left alone, no one left to share these dreams so they die with me.

Then came that last we were ever together. She squeezed me so tight told me we were forever. They took you away, hands locked in place you died that night in your cage my heart turned black that day.

Into the wild the calls are turning to screams so we evolve through the cycle until we turn back to beasts. To each their own until you’re left alone, no one left to share these dreams so they die with me.
Released by the wild then returned to the streets, lost in all in the fire that’s been burning beneath. It’s impossible to know where to ever go so we close our eyes and hope we fall asleep.
