4 track cassette recording and field recording by Amy Annelle
mixed by Brian Beattie at the Old Wonder Chamber, Austin, Texas

lyrics

when I lay my eye on you
it's like a lion meets a lamb
it's like when a lion meets a lamb
I'm hungry, you're helpless
and I don't give a damn.

caught you with one paw
tore you open with one claw
and your blood came out in waves
'til it was drained
came and came 'til you were drained
and then i took of your sweet flesh
until there was nothing left.

so reckon with me, sweetie
and tell all your little friends
I've done it before, and I'll do it again
I've done it before and I'll do it again
you haven't got a prayer unless
you're hungrier than me
cause a lion doesn't share.
