lyrics

He’s a loaded gun
A dangerous thrill who I love
His shooting is sharp and my head is his mark
But transfixed by some magical spark
I try running but my feet never start

The animal is me
A slow-thinking, slobbering beast
I feed from the hand of a murderous man
But a good man I say to myself
As he slides his gun into my mouth

The hunter I love in spite of his gun
He keeps me coming when I know I should run
Make my get away clean
I know it’s bad
But it’s the nature of things

Two portraits of us apart
Would make for meaningless art
A man with no kill and a girl with no thrill
We in each other define
The meaning we see in our lives

The hunter I love in spite of his gun
He keeps me coming when I know I should run
Make my get away clean
I know it’s bad
But it’s the nature of things

And like a moth to the flame
When he whistles my name
It’ll kill me to stay
But I do anyway

The hunter I love in spite of his gun
He keeps me coming when I know I should run
Make my get away clean
I know it’s bad
But it’s the nature of things
