Decisions are a vacuum that drain what's in your head
And you would spend what's left of you
To tuck her into bed
Butler for human vacuum pouting in itself
She pushed you down and broke your crown
And made you someone else

Relieve the sentinels left charge over our grief
Resentment swells to fill the wells
Where we drown our relief
So if we ever make our choice
Break our bones and they'll rejoice

Southern wage slave, nine to five
Loose lips reprimand fall by
You've built for yourself to be a family man
Your second head bears not your visage
Instead it looks like her
Lost so much of yourself that you've forgotten who you were

Relieve the sentinels left charge over our grief
Resentment swells to fill the wells
Where we drown our relief
So if we ever make our choice
Break our bones and they'll rejoice

You're like a man that has two heads
And I have three or four
It's likely we'll be growing more
Wound up the lattice of my neck
And split into a fork
Bit by a bat stuck to your neck
It's sucking all your blood
If you ask me three times
I will answer you the same
Lord, you know I love you
Though I said I didn't know your name

If you ask me three times
I will answer you the same
Lord, you know I love you
Though I said I didn't know your name
So when I've finally made my choice
Break my bones and they'll rejoice

    General Commentfrom Josh:
    Hydra: "Hydra" was written for an estranged friend who got close to a girl and then slowly slipped away. There was a lot of bitterness and unresolved feelings there until they were stifled by the realization of my own imperfections. That's why the song quickly abandons its accusations; "You're like a man that has two heads and I have three or four." Even though this aggravating circumstance has cost us our friendship, I myself am constantly at fault for my own shortcomings, what makes yours any worse than mine? The song ends with a reference to Peter and a hopeful note of rectification for both parties. We might be screwing everything up, but nothing is beyond hope.
