Animal Child

This song is by Sivert Høyem and appears on the album Long Slow Distance (2011).

Well, I'm looking for an animal child
Well, I'm looking for an animal child
A she-wolf smile -an animal
Your fussy flesh -an animal
Release the beast -an animal
Your little teeth -an animal
Ain't it enough that we will die?
Well, I'm looking for an animal child
Well, I'm looking for an animal child
A depleted force -an animal
Abject faith -an animal
Outdated truth -an animal
Wasted youth
Ain't it enough that we will die
From an infection of the mind?
Long may your evening last
Long may your evening last
When your time has passed
And you're looking down yourself
Through a looking-glass
Well, I'm looking for an animal child
Well, I'm looking for an animal child
Reject all reason -an animal
Release the soul -an animal
Return to flesh -an animal
And burn the rest -an animal
Ain't it enough that we will die
From an infection of the mind?
My mind is like an open wound
That's bleeding constantly
Laid open to the world but still not connected to reality
Something slipped away from me when I was waiting in the street
Surprise, surprise, the world has turned, and it's turning ceaselessly
What now, what now? what's the meaning?
No sense, no truth, no feeling
What now, what now? what's the meaning?
She's proof, she's proof that I still got feeling
However low it seems
Me and her will sleep tomorrow
Dreaming ice age dreams
