There's A Beast And We All Feed It

Album: Shangri La (2013)
  • They grin but they don't mean it
    They sing but they don't feel it
    They're gone but they don't see it
    They can call but they can't heed it
    They think but they don't speak it
    There's a beast eating every bit of beauty
    And they all feed it

    Stop a moment, try to freeze it
    Find and they don't seek it
    At the bar but they can't meet it
    Try their best but they can't beat it
    Nice car, somebody keys it
    There's a beast easting every bit of beauty
    And yes they feed it

    Not a finger pointer
    I will not cry your name
    For yeah brothers and sisters
    We are one 'n' the same
    But when my sister suffers
    And when my mother cries
    All I want to do
    Is look in someone's eyes and say

    You sleep but you don't dream it
    You're sly but you don't seem it
    You're busy as a flea pit
    You struggle to perceive it
    Is it hard to believe it
    There's a beast eating every bit of beauty
    And yes you feed it

    I'm not a finger pointer
    I will not cry your name
    For yeah brothers and sisters
    We are one 'n' the same
    But when my sister suffers
    I have my mothers job
    All I want to do
    Is look in someone's eyes and say

    Somehow we'd better speak it
    We're scared someone will tweet it
    It's on the wall but you won't read it
    It's gone before you see it
    We all dread to repeat it
    There's a beast eating every bit of beauty
    And yes we all feed it Writer/s: Iain Denis Archer, Jake Edwin Kennedy
