Strong arm man
You do what you want to
You poke my eye
You do what you want to

You behemoth
You go where you want to
You've been stalking me around
You go where you want to

Till you come undone, so tragically
Killing your time, so tragically

Tonight a cold wind blows
Inside my conscience
You are my guiding light
You are my sunshine

When you dream
You are none the wiser
When you shut your eyes
You are none the wiser

Till you come undone, so carelessly
Killing your time, so carelessly, till it's all gone

Tonight a cold wind blows
Inside my conscience
You are my guiding light
You are my sunshine

Don't look down
Where you go I go
Slow it down
Where you go I go too

Tonight a cold wind blows
Inside my conscience
You are my guiding light
You are my sunshine

Tonight a cold wind blows
Inside my conscience
You are my guiding light
You are my sunshine

    Song MeaningTommy stated in an interview that the lyrics are about:

    "Driving around L.A., there are lot of giant, unnecessarily over-sized, behemoth trucks. To me, to drive one is an act of aggression. “Behemoth” was inspired by that. I wonder if the drivers of those vehicles are afraid of getting killed, so they drive tanks–like they’re in a war zone, and they may not be concerned with how it affects others or whether they end up killing someone. Living with that lack of civility on a daily basis takes its toll."

    "It’s still a pop song at heart and shares the same melodic elements that are present on the rest of the album, but there’s something about the tone of the song that sets it apart. Though the subject matter is a little daunting, there’s a feeling of overcoming, and it’s a positive song ultimately. That’s a common thread throughout the entire album."
