"Horse Hunter" as written by and Benjamin Allen Weinman Greg Puciato....
Stumbling over dead forgotten
Catch you and the secret falls away
You were drunken from delusion
Slipped and so the secret fell away

I see you
Tears in your eyes
Yeah this party is a bore
And you're the joke
Me and you
We are the light
Sit with me
Give me your hand

You should go your way
You are no friend of mine
Life still lives on lives
Red sea inside these walls

Commerce is your god
Cannibalistic flies
Monarch of your womb
Messiah of your thighs
How sacred is the web that must be spun
Your taste is on the tip of every tongue

Down, let's lay down
Take me all the way
All the way down
Shout, shout out loud
Make us proud for days
All the way down
Give to fire
Beyond the soul desire

    General CommentI think this song is about purchasing time with a prostitute. How emotionally detached he is from her and how commerce is her god. He's talking about how she needs him to survive, as he is the "monarch of your womb" and the "messiah of your thighs." The rest really speaks for itself.

    General CommentIt could well be about prostitution, but i interpreted it as something more general in that its about playing games and lying to girls and abuse them for sex without being emotionally attached. I love the interchange between the soft singing of what he says to the girl "Me and you, we are the light.. give me your hand" and the screaming in his true emotions "You're the joke". Its pretty much summed up in the line "how sacred is the web that must be spun" as we think of romance as pure and yet in this song its all about the sexual conquest -"Make us proud for days". The idea of manipulation and superiority in being emotionally detached in physical relationships comes up a bit in Dillinger's music.
