Liner Notes

When I first read the lyrics to Caged Tiger by deigratiahobbit I instantly had a melody in my head and wanted to collab to capture the idea, so I asked if I could give it a shot and deigratiahobbit agreed.

What I ended up with was pretty different from what I first envisioned, but it turned out to be one of my favorite tunes this year. Thanks for some great lyrics deigratiahobbit!

Since I tweaked the lyrics a bit, I figured I'd post this as a new entry and give the Domo-Hobbit credit for an extra song as a collab.

Lyrics

Though I’ve learned to evade you
You’re still on my brain
Escapist dreams of being free
Are all that keep me sane
Yet you’re lurking in corners
Hijaking the plane
My demon inside me…. inside
Tiger, Tiger, burning bright
Inside my mind and behind my sight
Stay where I can see you
I cannot release you… Tiger tiger

I’m learning to feed you
But you’re eating my heart
They see you staring from my eyes
Through your secret art
And I can’t tell them why I’m
still falling apart
‘Cuz I know you’re still in here… inside

Tiger, Tiger, burning bright
Inside my mind and behind my sight
Stay where I can see you
I cannot release you…

It’s blood and it’s madness and howling at full moons
It’s desperate, unholy, wielding short swords and harpoons
I cannot unleash you, I must keep you inside
You’re caged but still living – I wish you could leave me

Tiger, Tiger, burning bright
Inside my mind and behind my sight
Stay where I can see you
I cannot release you…

Tiger, Tiger, burning bright
Inside my mind and behind my sight
Stay where I can see you
I cannot release you…

Tiger tiger
