In my stomach
There is a fire
You give it fuel
And the flame burns higher
I’m a black dog
Running across the moor
To bring the trouble back to your door

And I am not sorry, no
For this part of me
Why should I be sorry
For my bestiality

So lock your door
But I won’t back down
Not ’til the trouble
Has come back around
Say what you want
But I won’t calm down
Not ’til this trouble
Has turned back around

Back to you
Back to you
It’s all coming back to you
Back to you
Back to you
It’s all coming back

Come on sister
It’s time you show your face
You know the games you play
Are clearly losing pace
And I believe in peace, yes!
And my heart is calm,
But now you’re tripping wires
You’re setting off alarms!

I am not sorry
For this part of me
I’ll never be sorry, no
For my bestiality

So lock your door
But I won’t back down
Until the trouble has come back around
Say what you want
But I won’t back down
Until the trouble
Has come back around!

(Wolf howls)

As nature is as nature does
And nature does as nature will
As nature is as nature does
And nature does as nature will
And nature is as nature does
And nature does as nature will
And nature is as nature does
And nature does as nature will!

    General CommentThis is a part of Patrick that we've never really seen: that there is an animalistic part of him; he can be angry, unrelenting. He has accepted that it is a part of his nature, and he hasn't any reason to be sorry for it.

    It seems he's singing more about solving some sort of issue. In any case, it sends shivers all around my skin.

    General CommentAnimalistic is the perfect way to describe this song. I was just talking the other day with someone about the ambiguity of whether something's meant to be a metaphor or not- Beastiality being the song in question.

    I have a live version of this from the Wolf's Lair website, does anyone know if there is a studio b-side or something?

    General CommentI was able to cap a version of the song without the skip in the beginning, the part that's missing is "To bring the trouble back to your door".

    A part of Patrick that we've never really seen before? Really?
    To me it seems this song is very much along the lines of Tristan, The Childcatcher, Don't Say No etc.

    It's an amazing song - don't get me wrong. It is incredible, inventive lyrics, beautiful voice, fascinating instrumental, I love it.
    But it's not a side of Patrick we haven't seen before. He stays reasonably consistent with producing Patrick-y masterpieces.

    General CommentPatrick is so in love with life.. it's amazing and (a bit) disturbing at the same time. And actually this is a side of Patrick that he doesn't try to hide at all... just look at his lyrics to The Adder. He has a fascination with beastiality

    But truthfully, this song makes me feel like he is supposed to be a wolf running in the forest. It IS very animalistic and fierce

    General CommentI think he is talking about his sexualty. I think he uses the term 'beastiality' almost as a euphimism for liking guys. He is saying guys are animals. I really didnt explain this well...

    General CommentxXlastgoodbyeXx, I wouldn't say Don't Say No is showing an animal side of Patrick at all, in fact quite the oposite. The meaning is passive and relenting.

    But about this song,
    He's not necessarily talking about Bestiality, we all know how Patrick is fond of his metaphors, but more about frustration and anger and animal instinct, and NOT being sorry for your actions and behaving how your body tells you to.
    It's a wild and magical song.

    General CommentOR it's like, the beastiality he's talking about isn't the beastiality we know, it's just a word for the animal side of him.
    'Why should I be sorry for my instincts and agressions?' kinda thing.
