"The Beast" as written by and Bobby Ray Simmons Jr. B.o.b....
Gently as we go, gently as we go
Steady as we go, steady as we go

I can sense in opening the front door
as we came in
You were burning a hole in my back
Can we turn this around from where we lost you
in the evening
Before things get out of hand

One by one eyes go optic,
we’re becoming the beast
Shear power and the heat of hate
brings our army of two to its knees
Steel lungs are shouting the house down,
going for the kill from the kiss
Battle stations are now navigation,
have we driven love to this?

Gently as we go, gently as we go
Steady as we go, steady as we go

All fired up, you’re a hot mess
getting messier
I’d do anything for sleep
But I can think of far better ways
to waste your energy
If you can bare to still touch me

One by one skin hardens,
we’re becoming the beast
Shear power in the heat of hate
brings our army of two to its knees
Steel lungs are screaming the house down,
going for the kill from the kiss
Battle stations are now navigation,
have we driven love to this?

Have we left, have we left the building?
Did we die a little death?
Is this the end of the road for us,
no more bridges for us to burn left?
Do we finally find ourselves at the point of no return?

One by one,
we’re becoming the beast
Sheer power in the heat of hate
brings our army to its knees
Steel lungs are shouting the house down,
going for the kill from the kiss
Battle stations are now navigation,
have we driven love to this?

Gently as we go, gently as we go
Steady as we go, steady as we go
