Lyrics

We lunge for the throat, carotid artery
The more blood that spills
The better it feels
Don't you agree
Just like lions
We wait for the kill
Just for the thrill
Ooooooooo
Through oil slicked tundra
Repeating our mantra
“Fortune and love favor the brave”
But, look how we behave
I slammed the door
I always come back for more
Last words are never enough
Fight to the end, or call my bluff
Just like lions
We wait for the kill
Just for the thrill
Ooooooooo // Ooooooooo
Don’t carry me home
Carry me home
Carry me home
I want to be alone, dear
Don’t you carry me home
Carry me home
Carry me home
I want to be alone, here
Just like lions we wait for the kill
Just like lions we wait for the kill
To watch the blood spill
Ooooooooo // Ooooooooo
Don’t carry me home
Carry me home
Carry me home
I want to be alone, dear
Don’t you carry me home
Carry me home
Carry me home
I want to die alone, here
Just like lions we wait for the kill
Just like lions we wait for the kill
Just for the thrill
Stoic and still
Will we ever get our fill
LIONS
