The Heart Is A Cannibal
The Cat Empire Lyrics

She hates you, then she loves you more
Underneath the shadows of her thoughts, shadows of her thoughts, she rings a bell for you
I wish that she was a statue made of gold and nobody could bring her down

Goodness knows I don't like sadness, she cries before she wakes
And so my friend, if you love her, don't turn away
Don't fight it
Don't run away
We're people, and we're animals
You're thunder, and the heart is a cannibal

I ask you do you love me more than all the men that have ever come before, come before
And when I'm a storm, kiss me, hurt me, heal me with your words, so nobody can ever bring me down


When love is gone, your thoughts are calm
Your words are holy, your days are long
Your blood gets older, and your face is old
And the days flow by like water
You miss the stormy weather
And she was gold

Conor Daly

this live is probably the most incredible experience ive ever witnessed

Gabble Ratchet

@dinojubz I'm in complete agreement, although the one that stood out the most to me is "On Our Way", The Heart Is A Cannibal is a close second, what a freakin' tune! I'm dying to hear it live too!

Décio Fonseca

Damn... I will miss Harry and the crew that`s leaving


Saw them live last week. Disappointed they didn't play this. The only song from Cinema that they played was Call Me Home, which is my 2nd from the album, behind this. Was still an incredible gig though. One of the best live bands in the world!


played live, this song is totally on another level. if anyone can believe it.


Cat Empire songs= epicness


cinema i think is their best album to date, after their first one of course

Tom Rooke

This is my favourite from their new album. That and 'Call Me Home' 'Falling' and 'All Hell' Generally I'm a bit disappointed in this album, I was hoping for more old school Cat Empire. But as it is with most bands they change direction and I've just got to accept that I guess. For what it is it's very good, though.


damnn, come to brazil for gods sake!!
