"Blood for Wild Blood" as written by and Johnny Borrell....
There's a stillness to the thrashing of despair
There is a calm in the rush of your stare
And I'm now beyond care
Experience being gained, we're back to back

And strain to strain, there is a stillness
Breathes in you and me
Music calls without answer
Where the darkness lies heavy

And the beast has no master
And the spirit no name
And the angels are hushing
And they dance in soft shame

This hysterical house could collapse in the night
And the hinges will buckle
Liars choke on their spike
But the darkness has a hunger
It offers you blood for wild blood

And you be on wondering
Why you're still not good enough
There is a glory in the pitch of your desire
And a calm in my gaze as my feet are retired

Our pulses exchange, we're face to face
Finally higher and wire to wire
Ohh, wire to wire, wire to wire

Signal to satellite, bullet to beast
Frequency is higher, ohh
I'm apart of this illusion, I'm for blues blood
To which new feeling do we go? Wire to wire

    General Commentthe last-ish verse, "There is a glory in the pitch of your desire/ And a calm in my gaze as my fear retires/ Our pulses exchange, we're face to face/ Finally higher and wire to wire" sounds tremendously sexy to me. Maybe some sort of prelude to sex or something? The rest I haven't a clue, but I love the contradictory terms, like "Stillness to the thrashing of despair" and "A calm in the rush of your stare"

    OH how I love Mr. Borrell :]

    oh, and I think it's "And a calm in my gaze as my fear retires", not feet...

    General CommentIt's like my favourite song ever! I really do like how the lyrics contrast with each other within the same line and verse. To be honest, I'm not entirely sure what it's about, but It really does remind me of Ink Exchange by Melissa Marr from the Wicked Lovely series quite a bit, something about the pictures the lyrics create.

    My InterpretationSo just a couple of lyrical corrections first: Not "stain to stain" but it's "strain to strain"; Not "Liars choke on their spike" but it's "Liars choke on their spite"; Not "and you be on wondering" but it's "And you're beyond wondering"; Not "And a calm in my gaze as my feet are retire" but it's "And a calm in my gaze as my fear retires"; Not "I'm apart of this illusion" but it's "And for whose illusion"; Not " I'm for Blues Blood" but it's "And for whose blood"; Not "To which new feeling do we go" but it's "To which new fever do we go". Overall you did a great job with the lyrics and thank you for posting.

    Looking at the song wire to wire, I think the phrase means an intense love. So in this song possibly the narrator has reached this intense love. The beginning sounds like the narrator and whoever have been clubbing, drugged out of their minds. This drug induced high through the song lends the belief that maybe wire to wire is them feeling this intense connection and attraction to each other, but not necessarily love like in the song wire to wire. Maybe? Just my thoughts. I do know that I absolutely love this song and listen to it all the time.
