Het innerlijke beest

The beast in me
Is caged by frail and fragile bonds
Restless by day
And by night, rants and rages at the stars
God help, the beast in me
The beast in me
Has had to learn to live with pain
And how to shelter from the rain
And in the twinkling of an eye
Might have to be restrained
God help the beast in me

It tries to kid me that it's just a teddy bear
Or even somehow managed
To vanish in the air
And that is when I must beware
Of the beast in me
That everybody knows
They've seen him out dressed in my clothes
Patently unclear
If it's New York or New Year
God help the beast in me
The beast in me

Nick Lowe, The Beast In Me. Eerst opgenomen door Nick's schoonvader Johnny Cash (prentje), die enigszins ervaringsdeskundig was wat betreft het worstelen met het innerlijke beest (muziekje).
