To Lock Eyes With a Wild Beast

This song is by Woods of Ypres and appears on the album Woods III: Deepest Roots and Darkest Blues (2008).

For those who think they are brave
Because they've never been afraid
Who judge those enduring consequences
When they have always been saved

To all those ignorant fucks who've always suckled from the teat:
I hope, one day, you'll meet your fate
Locking eyes with the 'wild beast'

For those who think they have all the answers
Though they've never been tested
Who are defiant to the rules of the world
Though they've never had to face it, themselves
To all those ignorant fucks who've always suckled from the teat:
I hope, one day, you'll meet your fate
Locking eyes with the 'wild beast'

Not to be taken by your fellow man, not to be taken by your own hand
Not having succumbed to disease, but having faced the wild beast

For after only one glance of the beast, in the blink of an eye
The young dawn, that was your life, has suddenly turned into midnight

As if it fell from the sky, your jaw drops in awe
Piss your self in fear. No clever language will save you here

As you slowly quicken the pace, as you try to slip away
Just as you think you will be okay...
You realize you've become the chase... Run

Let her take you down. Let her take you in her mouth
The moonlight reflecting in her eyes
The moonlight is shinning off her cold, sharp claws

Let her tear you limb from limb, let nature take its course
Let her kill and devour, kill and devour and kill some more

Memories are flashing before your eyes of old friends and dead relatives
With hallucinations induced from being eaten alive

Where no one could hear you scream, where no one could see you cry
An unlikely fate in present day, man and beast, face to face

You went looking for thrills and adventure, they came looking for you as well
You wanted nature? Nature wanted you as well

At the scene of the mauling, black cloth and blood in the snow
Surrounded by a crowd of trees you will be, but cold bones in the spring
