The Beast
Imogen Heap Lyrics


Gently as we go, gently as we go
Steady as we go, steady as we go

I can sense in opening the front door as we came in
You were burning a hole in my back
Can we turn this around from where we lost you in the evening
Before things get out of hand

One by one eyes go optic, we're becoming the beast
Shear power and the heat of hate brings our army of two to its knees
Steel lungs are shouting the house down, going for the kill from the kiss
Battle stations are now navigation, have we driven love to this

Gently as we go, gently as we go
Steady as we go, steady as we go

All fired up, you're a hot mess getting messier
I'd do anything for sleep
But I can think of far better ways to waste your energy
If you can bare to still touch me

One by one skin hardens, we're becoming the beast
Shear power in the heat of hate brings our army of two to its knees
Steel lungs are screaming the house down, going for the kill from the kiss
Battle stations are now navigation, have we driven love to this?

Have we left, have we left the building?
Did we die a little death?
Is this the end of the road for us, no more bridges for us to burn left?
Do we finally find ourselves at the point of no return?

One by one, we're becoming the beast
Sheer power in the heat of hate brings our army to its knees
Steel lungs are shouting the house down, going for the kill from the kiss
Battle stations are now navigation, have we driven love to this?

Gently as we go, gently as we go
Steady as we go, steady as we go

Gently as we go, gently as we go
Steady as we go, steady as we go

I can sense in opening the front door as we came in
You were burning a hole in my back
Can we turn this around from where we lost you in the evening
Before things get out of hand
One by one eyes go optic, we’re becoming the beast
Shear power and the heat of hate brings our army of two to its knees
Steel lungs are shouting the house down, going for the kill from the kiss
Battle stations are now navigation, have we driven love to this?

Gently as we go, gently as we go
Steady as we go, steady as we go

All fired up, you’re a hot mess getting messier
I’d do anything for sleep
But I can think of far better ways to waste your energy
If you can bare to still touch me
One by one skin hardens, we’re becoming the beast
Shear power in the heat of hate brings our army of two to its knees

One by one, we’re becoming the beast
Sheer power in the heat of hate brings our army to its knees
Steel lungs are shouting the house down, going for the kill from the kiss
Battle stations are now navigation, have we driven love to this?

Gently as we go, gently as we go
Steady as we go, steady as we go

I believe this video is firmly powerful in its simplicity. The song is raw and deals with the real rifts that grow between two people, turning bitter, cold and primally aggressive. Not promoting domestic violence, but symbolically displaying reality. Love your work Imogen x

This seems very touching, hard and human to me. How does she manage so well to be needfully honest and deeply sensitive at the same time? I love Imogen Heap!

This has to be one of the most unique and creative videos I have ever seen. In this day and age with all sorts of technology, the simplicity of it all is really astounding.

I love this song so much. It's almost a more aggressive twin of "The Moment I Said It", which is one of my favourite songs EVER. IMOGEN HEAP, I, as a musician and person, respect, appreciate, and love listening to everything you've done. Please let everyone know when you're coming to AUSTRALIA again!!! I saw you at the METRO THEATRE years ago. It was fantastic.

Someone already commented that it was uncomfortable yet mesmerizing... Those were my thoughts exactly. It was PERFECT for that song. Thank you thank you thank you for what you do!

Jonathan Keeler

I have not had a huge amount of time to listen to this album yet, but I think this is my favorite song (so far).

zebraxas screamin

This is my new favorite song... the whole album is an obsession for me, its been on repeat for at least 6 days now , no word of a lie
