"Wild" as written by and Michael/o'brien Elizondo....
I go wild cause you break me open
Wild cause you left me here
I go wild

Wild because the chips are down
Wild because there isn't anybody else around
Wild when the waves start to break
And God knows they're breaking in me now

Wild 'cause it doesn't make sense
For me to cry out in my own defense
Wild 'cause I would do anything
To tear you off your precious fence

So this is what it's like living in limbo
First I'm high then I'm solo

I go wild
'Cause you break me open
Wild
'Cause you left me here

I go wild
'Cause your promises are broken
Wild
When I know you're near

I go wild
I go wild

Tell me what you've come for
Moving like a hunter through my back door
Leaving the perfume of all you adore
To die nameless on my floor

Yeah well we both know you don't play fair
I guess you really think that you get me there
Let's be honest perhaps this little ride
Is too much for even you to bear

You've got a lot of nerve to come back here
You're not the only one who can smell fear

I go wild
'Cause you break me open
Wild
'Cause you left me here
I go wild

'Cause your promises are broken
Wild
Don't you get it dear
You're not the only one who lives on instincts
No I've got instincts of my own

You've got a lot of nerve to come back
Plan your attack yeah I am still waiting
You wrote the rules to try to contain me
You broke 'em
Now you have untamed me

I go wild
I go wild

Tell me what you've come for
What is it you adore
Won't you tell me?
What would you
Go wild for?

You've got a lot of nerve to come back here
Speak up my darling I have been waiting

I go wild
'Cause you break me open
Wild
'Cause you left me here

I go wild
'Cause your promises are broken
Wild
Don't you get it dear

You're not the only one who lives on instincts
No I've got instincts of my own

You've got a lot of nerve to come back
Plan your attack yeah I am still waiting
You wrote the rules to try and contain me
You broke 'em
Now you have untamed me

I go wild
I go wild

Communication is more than just words, communication is architecture,
Because of course it is quite obvious that a house which would be built without that
Will that desire to communicate, would not look the way your house looks today

    General CommentTo me it describes a relationship where the guy never commits to how he feels about her. He's always "on the fence" and drops little hints which lead her into questioning things, and he always denies it and acts offended at her assumptions, making her "cry out in her own defense" even though she's right about everything. He basically sets her up to fall every time. Getting her hopes high enough to make the fall more fun to watch. Constant state of limbo. It comes to a point where he finally commits, but then pulls the rug out from under her, so to speak, causing her to break, because he finally got her to trust him completely... so she didn't even see the betrayal coming.

    "Like a hunter through my front door
    Leaving the perfume of all you adore
    To die nameless on my floor,"

    That's the best line.

    I love the way, during the extended remixing of all the vocals, there's a bit that sounds like:

    "What is it you come for
    Come for
    Come for
    Come back here,"

    It sounds so, well, wild and animal like, like she's been pushed so far beyond the breaking point that she's going to tear him to pieces.
