The Jekyll-Hyde of you
I can't survive the tide of you
The vicious style of love, the whining 
Pits and pendulums of lying 
I don't see how you survive in
Hard-line worlds you're advertising  Sneaky features, facing, waiting 
City sex is so frustrating 

 Young savage
 Young savage
She's like a steel wall
 Speaks like a dance hall
 Young savage
 Young savage
 Anything goes where no-one knows your name

The mirror love of vixens 
Gets over the mask of victims  Money rents you insulation 
Tenderness, asphyxiation  Someone else's flesh to borrow  Sling it from your bed tomorrow 
Live too fast for love or sorrow 
Look behind the face, it's hollow 

 Young savage
 Young savage
She's like a steel wall
 Speaks like a dance hall
 Young savage
 Young savage
 Anything goes where no-one knows your name

 Young savage
 Young savage
She's like a steel wall
 Speaks like a dance hall
 Young savage
 Young savage
 Anything goes where no-one knows your name

The broken heart of you
Who stole, who stole a part of you
 Changing blossoms into piss
And taking bites from every kiss
The past is dead, tomorrow's too far
All the chemicals that bar us
 Coloured hair, cheap tattoos
That tell you all their points of view

 Young savage
 Young savage
She's like a steel wall
 Speaks like a dance hall
 Young savage
 Young savage
 Anything goes where no-one knows your name

 Condemned to be a stranger  Subway dweller, dead-end danger  Peeking through the dust of friends 
Who never gave, they'd only lend
 Every sneer is thrown away
With practised gestures of disdain 
The outlaw stance is so pedantic 
Hate the world, it's so romantic 

 Young savage
 Young savage
She's like a steel wall
 Speaks like a dance hall
 Young savage
 Young savage
 Anything goes where no-one knows your name
