"3 Legged Animals" as written by and Temistoclas Hugo Rutili....
Hands fit together like medicine
Butterfly itch on a bottle rocket tail everything is bleeding
Shake the glass out of your hair
Spell your name in broken teeth

3 legged animals
Shut their sweet eyes lick your scars and grow wings
Sleep for me sleepless
Dream for me dreamless

Hands bleed together fine
Sweat off your makeup
Peel and wait in washed out gold
Ease back warm electric chair
Leave your memories we're almost new
Sleep for me sleepless
Dream for me dreamless
Sleep for me sleepless
Dream for me dreamless

    General CommentHe [Rutili] explains, “that song started out as a song called ‘Dreamless’ for the end credits of The Lost. The last scene in the film is a total bloodbath; after that it seemed like the film could use a little sweetness, a bit of salvation for these dark, misfit characters after a period of intense violence. We re-recorded it with Califone and took a more detailed approach, both lyrically and instrumentally. Where the first version felt more about balancing the mood of the film, the one from the album feels more about hope and joy, rebirth, survival and self-acceptance.”
