Out tonight on an ancient rite past the windblown timberline
the belly and teeth, the paws of the beast, run swift, his heart behind
In a lightening strike, flash of light, the wool taken from the fold
by horn, by haste, the prey laid waste, for the hunger we all behold
he waits over her, his heart returns, weeps for the flesh it tore
now the heartful beast mourns the feast of its prey upon the forest floor

Out tonight on an ancient rite in the shelter of the trees
you took my hand to the burning strand the timber fell at our knees
on a night well worn, the cry of a storm, the moan of a love once fled
your windblown eyes I was beneath your thighs pressed upon the forest bed

Out tonight on an ancient rite so swift, wild, free
the heat in your breath, the beat in my chest, just now catching up with me
