"Naked And Savage" as written by Wayne Hussey, Simon Thomas Hinkler, Mick Brown and Craig David Adams....
The cuckoo sleeps, hungry and wild and crawling
Through the storm that breaks
Clears away the vicious and violent heat
Breathe deep, breathe long and hard
Kiss and caress the hands that feed
Love me primitive, betray my lips
And the treacherous heart, the savage breed

Hollow eyes only cry hollow tears
And the tinselling flesh melts away
The scars and fears that the shameless years
Leave laughing and dancing
On a wasted and tattered dream
Cry hollow tears, stifle the tortured kiss and scream

Screaming in the darkness, torn and ravaged
Spinning round in circles
And in the crazy and the howl of the naked and savage

The cuckoo sleeps, hungry and wild and crawling
Through the storm that breaks
Clears away the vicious and violent heat
Breathe deep, breathe long and hard
Kiss and caress the hands that feed
Love me primitive, betray my lips
And the treacherous heart, the savage breed

Screaming in the darkness, torn and ravaged
Spinning round in circles
And in the crazy and the howl of the naked and savage

Tarnish, taint and punish me softly
Kiss the heavens where the angels tread
Love is the corpse that crawls on dreams
Rips them apart and tears them to shreds

Screaming in the darkness, torn and ravaged
Spinning round in circles
And in the crazy and the howl of the naked and savage

Savage, savage, savage, savage

    My InterpretationFrom experience, I think it's about a narcissist taking advantage of someone innocent and pretending to love them, in return for what they can get out of them materially:

    The cuckoo - someone who infiltrates another's life purely for their own advantage, not love.

    Kiss and caress the hands that feed - act obsequiously, flatter, hug, f*ck and tell someone what a good person they are in order to boost their ego and pay you attention.

    The treacherous heart, the savage breed - someone who'll dump you for another that gives them more advantage without thought or guilt.

    Hollow eyes only cry hollow tears - narcissists are notoriously empty inside, and need to be around others who flatter them to prop up their vacuous egos, pretend to be hurt when it suits them to gain advantage or attention. They can attract each other as well as innocents.

    On a wasted and tattered dream - On a wasted and tattered life. A pointless, self hate fuelled life that didn't work out as it should have, because of the way you treated others supposedly close to you.

    Stifle the tortured kiss - narcissists will kiss and bed anyone for their gain, knowing they feel nothing for them, screwing someone they hate the sight of, just for personal gain.

    Screaming in the darkness, torn and ravaged - torn between wanting to love someone, but having a relationship with someone who can make them feel real through the material and social gain they hold, even though they're not loved.

    Spinning round in circles - spinning in circles, making the same relationship mistakes again and again and again. Not learning from their mistakes, because that would involve admitting they're wrong and saying sorry.

    And in the crazy and the howl of the naked and savage - the howl of the pain inside them as they realise they have screwed up yet another potentially good relationship with their avarice and lies. But narcissists are NEVER wrong and will fly into a rage when you suggest they may be less than perfect, so they know deep down they have messed up another relationship, but will always blame the other person for it. It's never their fault.

    Tarnish, taint and punish me softly - hurt me for being so bad, I deserve to suffer for my deeds against other genuinely good people. Not "my" kind of good.

    Kiss the heavens where the angels tread - I can only kiss goodness, never possess it in my narcissistic heart as I cannot love someone for being them.

    Love is the corpse that crawls on dreams, rips them apart and tears them to shreds - my dreams are of the material, I cannot love someone for being them, only pretend to love someone who can give me social status. True love rips apart those dreams of material avarice, I can never love someone for being them, only for giving me what I want to fill my emotionally shallow, empty shell of a persona.

    Savage, savage, savage, savage - yes, these emotionally empty people are utterly, devastatingly savage and have no care for what they do to genuinely good people.
    They will even lie to class themselves as good, when they know they are truly evil gold diggers.

    And yes, I have known two people like this in my life, but thankfully spotted them before they damaged me.
    The lesson from Naked and Savage: Identify and avoid anyone who seems overly keen on you once they know what you're worth, or is interested in it. And if you have the nerve...play games with them.
