lyrics

I lost her in the wilderness
It's sad, but it's a fact
Another girl, another girl
Is gone
She had high expectations
Oh, they were just never met
I'm just a man, I'm just a man, I'm trapped
I keep my lines empty
Serve myself cold
Everything's clear and I can sing from the bone
I live in a woman's world
It's mad, but it's true
You've got a grip on me
You've got a grip on me
I lost you in the wilderness
It's sad, but it's a fact
Another girl, another girl
Is gone
You kept me on a leash, looking for a way into my frown
See, that's the thing that I just can't allow
I wanted power over you
I wanted power over you
I wanted power over you
You wanted power over me
You wanted power over me
You wanted power over me
Give up, give up, give up...
Give me pleasure, give me love
Give me rules made to forget
Give me truth and beauty and I'll give you all I have
What's the measure of a man?
What's the least you can expect?
What's your kingdom really worth
When there's so much disconnect?
I keep my lines empty
Serve myself cold
Everything's clear and I can sing from the bone
I live in a woman's world
It's mad, but it's true
You've got a grip on me
I guess you never knew

It's all about looking, and focusing, and going deeper, trying to pull something very rare out, and then holding it next to another object that had been retrieved, seeing how well they could speak to each other, and then continuing that process.
