​Reason With the Beast

This song is by Shriekback and appears on the album Cormorant (2005).

Don't wanna do this but he gets you there
(Gotta reason with the beast)
He makes a rats nest from your pretty hair
(Gotta reason with the beast)
Try to deny him but he stands his ground
He's a pitbull that you can't impound
Comes the monster in his season
And he won't calm down
(You got to reason with the beast)
Gotta reason with the beast

He makes you listen to his shriveled mind
(Gotta reason with the beast)
His reason's flaw is often hard to find
(Gotta reason with the beast)
The agapanthus wreathed around his brow
His yellow teeth gnaw into all your vows
He rips the buttons from your clean white blouse
(Just have to reason with the beast)
Gotta reason with the beast
