AUTODOMESTICATED ANIMAL

 

VERSE I

Tame your heart, don’t make them go away
They’re not ready for the words you say
Lonely is the tidal wave
Keep it quiet, always mend, but don’t break

CHORUS

Isn’t she wonderful
Autodomesticated animal
Ain’t it beautiful
The way she speaks her mother’s mind
Isn’t it lovely
How she cages herself inside
Oh ain’t it grand
The way she’s clinging to your hand

VERSE II

Move your body this way, kid
Be a little naked but not too naked
You’re here for the others so serve them first
And you’re too soft if you say it hurts

CHORUS

Isn’t she wonderful
Autodomesticated animal
Ain’t it beautiful
The way she speaks her mother’s mind
Isn’t it lovely
How she cages herself inside
Oh ain’t it grand
The way she’s clinging to your hand

BRIDGE

And in the right light
In the embers of the setting sun
She lets herself cry
For all the times she doesn’t run
As fast as she can the other way
As fast as the can

CHORUS

Isn’t she wonderful
Autodomesticated animal
Ain’t it beautiful
The way she speaks her mother’s mind
Isn’t it lovely
How she cages herself inside
Oh ain’t it grand
The way she’s clinging to your hand
Oh ain’t it grand
The way she’s clinging to your hand
Yeah, she’s so fine inside the lines
