Wild 1

When you cut in the middle
wild is in the dark
wild is (in) the dark
kneel only before the ark
let it simmer
boil burst overflow
the blood, red
rage, road rash
in your veins
none come near you
in any park


Wild 2

This music crept by me upon the carcasses
trip hop, the beat that was there from the beginning
the hammer of the heart
the darkest of the arts
this music
this cut
in the middle
at the end
of the beginning
this mu
none come near
wild is the dark
wild in the dark
wild the dark
wild dark

kneel only
before the ark
this music
cut into layers
over lay on overlay
this poem
this influence
the bass
it keeps jumping
around and round

jumping in the pond

this trout
this flout
this must be the clout
of this electro pop


Wild 3

none come near
wild is the dark
wild in the dark
wold woad
wild the dark
wild dark
this music
you hear
kneel only
before the ark
none come near
in any park
