"Cannibal Girl" as written by and Palumbo....
She told me all the things she knew
You give her one she'd reach for two
The cold four on the sofa is getting closer
And she's the hardest thing to do
When the mantis in her preys on you
An appetite fit for a king in a love

I don't wanna bore you, but here I go again
Cannibal Girl
You've been eating me alive
I don't wanna bore you, but here I go again
Cannibal Girl

So lately I've been meaning to
Say a few things to you
She gets all the good attention
And I get honored with the mention
And she's the hardest thing to do
When the mantis in her preys on you
An appetite fit for the kids you love

I don't wanna bore you, but here I go again
Cannibal girl
You've been eating me alive
I don't wanna bore you, but here I go again
Cannibal girl

And that's what hearts are for
You give her one she breaks more
Its the changing of the guard
And now the last one to know
When it's all just for show
And I'm trying to be so hard

I don't wanna bore you, but here I go again
Cannibal girl
You've been eating me alive
I don't wanna bore you, but here I go again
Cannibal girl
You've been eating me alive

I don't wanna bore you here I go again
Cannibal girl
You've been eating me alive
I don't wanna bore you here I go again
Cannibal girl

    My OpinionThis song is totally my favorite on both their albums. It is tied with Beating Hearts Baby at the very least. It has that old sound that is just so attractive. It really fits in with the album, the whole CD has that style, but not one song is the same. So Good!
