"Mongrel Heart" as written by and Brian Joseph Burton James Russell Mercer....
Is it hard to wait?
Drawn by your mongrel heart again
If they don't answer, would you want to be found out?
You duck through the wind in your old blight on the town

Love is turning you out
Sliding worry round
I try to warn its waiting game
To bring that specter down

Would it be wrong
To clamp down on your racing heart? Love
And if they'd known, what sifted down to be found out?
It's not what you deserve

Love is turning you out
Sliding worry round
I try to warn its waiting game
To bring that specter down

Faster than you were going to allow
Turn out the lights or say get out
If you don't answer, would you want to be found, love?
Five days on, trapped by a wave

Love is turning you out
Sliding worry round
I try to warn this waiting game
To bring that specter down

Black corn was soaking
You'll be cut down in the seedy stairway
If you don't answer, would you want to be found now?
Sapped from the bed to the window

Looking back on that time
Starting in the minds
What it is to be twenty nine
Fame sets your life down

Would it be wrong
Would it be wrong
To disappoint you now
Disappoint you now

    General Commentthis song has a really creepy vibe to it, I think it would make an amazing music video, if done correctly.

    General CommentI think it may be "back from the sulking" rather than "black corn was soaking"

    General CommentI may be totally off, but could this have something to do with sex? Like a girl who wants to be loved, so she sells her body in a way.
    The line that made me think that was

    "faster than you were going to allow
    turn out the lights or say get out"

    maybe i'm completely wrong....

    General CommentWell, mongrel means a cross between different things.
    "Is it hard to wait?
    Drawn by your mongrel heart again"
    Probably about sex.
    "Would it be wrong
    To clamp down on your racing heart, love?"
    The phrase "clamp down" means to become more strict.
    I think its about control. He wants to control her wild heart.
