lyrics

Do you like to get out of town more and more
To walk in the forest, or down by the shore?
Do you tire of living your civilised life
The noise and the fever, the trouble and strife?
And in the wild places do you seek peace of mind
Away from the greed and deceit of our kind?

I was watching the sun going down on the Tweed
Four or five drakes determined to breed
They tore at her head as she struggled for air
Near dead with exhaustion, but drakes cannot care
She made one last effort to haul out on ground
But they pushed her back under, and slowly she drowned

Out here don't look for pity
Nature is nature and this is her law
She's gorgeous, but she's not pretty
Dripping with red from tooth and from claw

Have you seen the lion run down the fawn?
Have you seen the siblings kill the newborn?
Have you seen hyenas eat a zebra alive?
They target the young and the weak to survive
In whole populations crash follows swell
Is this some kind of haven, or some kind of hell?

Out here don't look for pity
Nature is nature and this is her law
She's gorgeous, but she's not pretty
Dripping with red from tooth and from claw

And sometimes I just can't bear it
Let's hope it's physics that laid down this law
But sometimes I just despair
It is written in red with tooth and with claw
