"King" as written by and Tanya Donelly....
Little bird
I won't prey on you
I won't prey on you this time
I'm your faith
I'm your faith healer
I'm your faithless companion
I'm the seed that made your perfect body
When you sleep, I am awake

There is a light
Under the ocean
Under the ocean, there's things shining everywhere
There is a light keeper
Under the blanket here
Under the blanket,
There's things shining down here
Now I see you lay your perfect body down for me
Now we're down

Little bird,
I won't prey on you
I won't prey on your this time
I'm your faith
I'm your faith healer
I'm your faithless companion
I'm the seed that made your body perfect
When you sleep, I am awake

There is a light
Under the ocean
Under the ocean,
There's things shining everywhere
There is a light keeper
Under the blanket here
Under the blanket,
There's things shining everywhere
You light the ocean from behind
I'll show you mine
Baby I can't fake it
I'd like to see you naked
I'd like to see you naked
I'd like to see you naked
Naked

    General CommentShe won't be a brute in this relationship, she's willing to let her guard down and be nurturing to this "perfect" individual.. because if anything feels perfect, it's love.. the end lyrics are great. Sometimes it's unbearable and you just wanna see the one you adore naked before your eyes!! lol :D

    General CommentI thought it was about sexual abuse from the father's point of view. ("I'm the seed..."etc.) Really creepy. Kinda hope I'm wrong.
