lyrics

young lions/
gather with your brothers in the cave light/
utter your true colours to the flame/ like
planning an escape from your ribcage/ I
want to see you shed your skin/
meet the creatures that tread within/
show me bone embedded sin/
dismantle the tangle of human limbs/


pull back individuals/
we're doing this my way where primates rule/
for the jaws and claws of the physical/
cast off the mask of the fictional/
get jungli for crooked gods/
time to recall what we forgot/
aboriginal principles/
be barbarian faeries and pixie souls/
so if it/ feels good then/ fuck it, do/
lose it to this rupture tune/ and if you/
want to be struck by a punch of truth/
then puncture the moon and suck the juice/
let the carnage leak/ little carnal beast/
to herald the feral is up to you/
so bust a move/ in your dusty shoes/
you animal/

you can be what you want/ but you can't be/
a bird in the sky when you want to be/
if you take life so seriously/ wolf spirited?
go ahead/ go find yourself a ledge/
howl to the moon bow down to the evidence/
run with your energy/ you know how it has to be/
i have tried to be alive/ in these streets of mine/ but
worlds are too far apart for concrete jungles to survive/ I'm
stuck in this state of mine/
i'm disinclined/ to draw behind
the notion/ of the unconfined/
for claw and finger to align/

young lions/
gather with your brothers in the cave light/
utter your true colours to the flame/ like/
planning an escape from your ribcage/ I
want to see you shed your skin/
meet the creatures that tread within/
show me bone embedded sin/
dismantle the tangle of human limbs/

about

Trotfox Exeter, UK

A Trotfox is a rare species of manimal, prone to singing impossible folk tales and drinking improbable cocktails.

The Trotfox's mating call has been reported to share sonic qualities with the impassioned self-righteous steeze of the hip hop emcee, the undulating vocal turbulence of the tipsy gypsy, and the the undeniable stomp of a rowdy pink elephant parade.
