When you catch the light you look like your mother
It crushes me some, just right from the side
When you catch the light, there's a flash of wild creatures
For the stone age of the preachers
And the husbands and the wives

When you catch the light the flood changes direction
And darkens the lens that projects my disguise
As you fight alongside you'll discover my weakness
I'm not fighting for your freedom
I am fighting to be wild

Hey little kid, would you like to be the king's pet or the king?
I'd choose odorless and invisible, but otherwise, I would choose the king
Even though it sounds the loneliest
And my brother's hands would poison me

Hey little girl, would you like to be the king's pet or the king?
I'd choose odorless and invisible, but otherwise, I'd choose the king
Even though it sounds melodious
There's no mother's hands to quiet me

    General CommentThis song reminds me of Guillermo Del Toro's "Pan's Labyrinth". The lyrics fit the story in tone so well.
