Wolf Like Me
TV on the Radio Lyrics


Say, say, my playmate
Won't you lay hands on me
Mirror my malady
Transfer my tragedy?

Got a curse I cannot lift
Shines when the sunset shifts
When the moon is round and full
Gotta bust that box, gotta gut that fish

My mind's aflame

We could jet in a stolen car
But I bet we wouldn't get too far
Before the transformation takes
And blood lust tanks and
Crave gets slaked

My mind has changed
My body's frame, but, God, I like it
My heart's aflame
My body's strained, but, God, I like it

My mind has changed
My body's frame, but, God, I like it
My heart's aflame
My body's strained, but, God, I like it

Charge me your day rate
I'll turn you out in kind
When the moon is round and full
Gonna teach you tricks that'll blow your mind
Mongrel mind
Baby doll, I recognize
You're a hideous thing inside
If ever there were a lucky kind, it's
You, you, you, you

I know it's strange another way to get to know you
You'll never know unless we go so let me show you
I know it's strange another way to get to know you
We've got till noon, here comes the moon
So let it show you
Show you now

Dream me, oh dreamer
Down to the floor
Open my hands and let them
Weave onto yours

Feel me, completer
Down to my core
Open my heart and let it
Bleed onto yours

Feeding on fever
Down all fours
Show you what all that
Howl is for

Hey, hey, my playmate
Let me lay waste to thee
Burned down their hanging trees
It's hot here, hot here, hot here, hot here

Got a curse we cannot lift
Shines when the sunshine shifts
There's a curse comes with a kiss
The bite that binds the gift that gives

Now that we got gone for good
Writhing under your riding hood
Tell your gra'ma and your mama too
It's true, true, true, true
We're howling forever, oh, oh
We're howling forever, oh, oh
We're howling forever, oh, oh
We're howling forever, oh, oh
We're howling forever, oh, oh

@phoxius Damn, that was an existential introspection of acceptance that I haven’t really ever quite seen before… Or rather read lol. Thanks for the words you shared, in a way you imparted some wonderfully maddeningly chaos in my life – and I’m sure the lives of others too – by sharing yours. It’s quite beautiful I think.

Although, I don’t presume to understand your entire story by a few impactful words, I just wanna say be careful… I’ve seen how that path of substance abuse can be taken too far, and how easily it can burn people out. Even though as said in the words of Kurt Cobain, “it’s better to burn out than fade away,” it would be a damn shame if your light was extinguished early. You’re magnificent and luminous, and I know it might be weird to see a stranger on the internet write that; if you ever even do read this message…

I dunno. I just wish you the best in your future, and I suppose I hope that it’s full of happiness, as cheesy as that is. I just feel like you deserve it, I hope you feel that way too. I’m not saying relax or nothing, or even that happiness is measured the same for everyone. Just like, if church burning is what gives ya catharsis or whatever, I hope it helps get you to that place of self/spiritual-actualization, whatever that is.

Oh, and I also wanted to ask if you’ve ever tried “Penis Envy mushrooms” ??? – I know funny name for a fungus – but seriously, 1 gram of it is about as transforming of an experience as you’d ever experience, and I’ve heard that psilocin is quite the marvellous medication in the forefront of the next frontier of science. It is quite difficult to acquire, but it’s in quite the higher elevation of upper echelon psychoactive drugs that transmutes even outer body experiences. Just thought I would leave that information here if you or anyone else wanted to explore more about that topic.

Anyway, that’s enough of my rambling.

I had an old friend that danced her heart out to this song at a bar about a month before she died. I didn't know what song it was but i was in love with it but couldn't find it anywhere and just now discovered who it was. It was the last time I saw her and it's always going to be my favorite memory of her. r.i.p shannon!

I danced in a club to it the other night cant believe i got the dj to play it…sounds like I would have loved your friend 🥰

Ian McCarty

I suppose Shannon had the edge on life. As far as memories go, you lucked out. A song that captures vitality in a descent

Jamie Ingels

I'm glad you found it.

I'm so sorry about your friend. I've lost enough loved ones in my time and while everyone's pain is different, I can only imagine how it must have felt to find a song that you were able connect so viscerally to your own loved one.

Here's hoping that if there is an afterlife of some kind, she's happily there and dancing. 🌹❤

Took me 5 years to find this. You won't believe the lyrics I've typed in Google...."They took my BeyBlade. Won't you lay hands on me"

I found this song through Local H's cover of it. One of the best covers ever imo. Everyone who hasn't heard their version should check it out immediately. You'll love it.

I thought it was saying "The highway forever" instead of "We're howling forever"
