"Wilderness" as written by Mauro Remiddi, David Yee On Lo, Massimo Zoccheddu and Edward Stuart Alistair Howat....
Tell me, what did you expect to see when you came in here?
Exotic drums, funny clothes, or magic tricks to steal?
Did you come to meet a dreamer, yes or something more?
Did you want strings attached? Well I cut them all.

What there is in your mind that makes you feel so sure?
Tonight I will whisper things you need to know.

Tell me, what did you expect to see
When you went into the wilderness?
Flashing lights, silver tambourine the full while
You're shouting in a crowd.

Did you expect to see a prophet wearing gold?
You must look in king's palace as photos kind of jokes
Just gotta see differently just like the painters do
Cause I will direct all my words to you.

What there is in your mind that makes you feel so sure?
Tonight I will whisper things you need to know.

Tell me, what did you expect to see
When you went into the wilderness?
Flashing lights, silver tambourine the full while
You're shouting in a crowd.

    LINE 2 "Exotic DRUMS, FUNNY CLOTHES , OR magic tricks to steal?"

    LINE 3 it's "yes OR something more"

    LINE 6 & 16 "TONIGHT i will whisper things you need to know"

    LINE 10 11 & 19 20 "Flashing lights, silver tambourine(No s) the FOOL ONE IS Shouting in THE crowd"
