I find you hidden there a veiled creature of the deep,
Waifish as a widow and without sufficient sleep,
Oh what am I supposed to think?
Do I pull you out or do I let you sink?

I wait until you're woozy, I lay low until you're lame,
I take you in my mouth like a lion takes his game,
I love you all the more for every fault,
They're how I'd gotten in, they're how I cracked the vault

Cause it's a terrible scare,
But that's why the dark is there,
So you don't have to see what you can't bear,
The lion's share

Lion's share,
I took the lion's share,
Not cause I didn't care,
Just cause I knew it was there
[x2]

Boy what you running from?... Boy?
Boy what you running from?... Boy?

Cause it's a terrible scare,
But that's why the dark is there,
So you don't have to see what you can't bear,
The lion's share

Boy what you running from?... Boy?
Boy what you running from?... Boy?

Cause it's a terrible scare,
But that's why the dark is there,
So you don't have to see what you can't bear,
The lion's share
