"Liontamer" as written by Rollo Armstrong, Ayalah Deborah Bentovim, Maxwell Alexander Fraser and Zoe Johnston....
[Maxi Jazz]
If you place a thing into the center of your life
That lacks the power to nourish
It will eventually poison everything that you are
And destroy you

A simple a thing as an idea
Or your perspective on yourself of the world
No one can be the source of your contempt,
It lies within, in the center.
Only with mellow while your thin enough to slide through
Only with mellow while your thin enough to slide through

Don't let nothing ride you.

If the sun or the moon should keel away to die,
They would immediately go out .

One.

Swallow don't make a sound,
But tomorrow has to start somewhere.

Newspapers entertain,
Lion Tamers die in pain
This Child wise beyond words
Whose tears flow without seize

Newspapers entertain,
Lion Tamers die in pain
This child wise beyond words
Whose tears flow without seize

[Zoë]
When there's no where, left to run to
Let me come to you, let me help you down
For when the world, gives you tomorrow
Your gonna learn to live again

we can learn to go,
oh learn as we go

Just to live, for the day
I know it's hard, to live for the moment
Just try, anyway

[Maxi Jazz]
Newspapers, Lion Tamers, This Child,
Lion Tamers, Lion Tamers

    Only when mellow are you thin enough to slide through

    If the sun or the moon should give way to doubt, they would immediately go out .
    One swallow don't make a summer but tomorrow has to start somewhere.

    My Interpretationone of my fav faithless songs. mazi jazz is an amazing writer.

    sometimes people get caught in cycles that are unhealthy for them. once a cycle gets set into motion, it's hard to break - such as contempt. you have to learn to tame the beast "lion tamer".

    learn to live for the day. tomorrow comes and you can make it better than today. only when you learn to let go of the past is when you can live again. all this change comes from within you, not an outside source or from anyone else.
