Don't look at me like that, like I'm made of magic You'll grow out of it. They always do And don't look at me like that, like I hold the world in my hands You'll grow out of it They always do Don't look at me like that, like I make wine from water You'll grow out of it They always do And don't look at me like that, like I'm some mystical creature You'll grow out of it They always do I'd go back in time if I could Light it all up on a pyre of wood And these two hearts in my chest Well, one just gave out, and the other doesn't have much time left So burn it down, burn it down Push my raft in the water ....watch me drown Just look at me like that, like I'm carved out of stone I'll get used to it I always do And don't look at me like that When I say I'm better on my own Get used to it They always do I would if I were you I would if I were you

I was born under a dark moon Against reason and nature And the blackest of nights came so soon In the heart of this creature Oh, Mother of Rabbits Shelter me from myself Piece me together And deliver me from this hell He was born under a red moon Against reason and nature And crimson as blood, it came so soon In the eyes of this creature Oh, Mother of Rabbits Shelter him from himself Piece him together And deliver him from this hell We feel the kick, we feel the hum We feel it burn deep in our lungs We feel the kick, we feel the hum We feel it burn and we feel numb We feel numb Oh, Mother of Rabbits Shelter us from ourselves Piece us together And deliver us from this hell.

Intrinsically poetic, Wilde’s music is about the journey, rather than a set destination.
