THE PETRIFIED FOREST Gonna run through the jungle With my head in a bag You can never go back You’ll have a heart attack Gonna run through the jungle With my head in a bag Gonna dance through the desert With the sun overhead With my head in a bag You can never go back You’ll have a heart attack Now take a shot of that I’ll be falling over Like every time I see you There’s no need to be hollow I’ll be petrified So stiff and frozen solid Like every time I see you Where you’ll lead I’ll follow I’ll be right behind Trying to never catch you PETRIFIED

Simpleanimal 02:39
SIMPLEANIMAL I can’t help myself I’ve tried it before And again after that I can’t help myself So I think about it Think about it everyday Can’t think about it Think about it now Used to keep me up Like every night Can’t think about it Think about it now I get off when I’m uneven Even if you don’t believe it I won’t laugh if you won’t either I refuse to be the leader
3.
LEGEND OF KAGE you’ve got me running wild in a cage one look at your face and I can tell it’s still the same and it’s been a while since I ate you said I was strong turns out not for long they told me to beware I don’t care one look at my eye and you’ll know that I’m burning red as I am going for the throat and I think my head could explode cause all you wanna do is hold me back and all I wanna do to you is attack I’d probably be fine if left alone
4.
PARANOID MUCH? You keep insisting Everybody’s Always after me I look over my shoulder And you’re gone You keep insisting Everybody’s Always after me Insisting every tragedy Is one of three I look over my shoulder And you’re gone Could have sworn I heard You left the party after me Insisting everybody’s Always after me I don’t know why Disaster has to follow me I look over my shoulder And you’re gone Maybe you were never there I spent the whole night Staring at the air After the sunset Before the break of dawn I found you gone But not forgotten Maybe you were never there

Falling Down 04:54
FALLING DOWN I'm always falling down And I'm never getting up I may be on the ground But I'm never giving up You can't make this stuff up Talking is easy When you get started I'll start with a vodka Soda with lemon One to get lucid Two to go further Three to go faster Four to go nowhere Anyway I've been Shackled by the world And I've fallen down hard I still seek Shelter from the storm Can't wish it away I won't be shut up I can't hardly stand up My knees are shot Jello Weren't we in this together Now hey man What are you doing? Swear I won't be cutoff I'll fake grab my sawed-off Probably end up shooting Myself in the foot I'm always falling down And I'm never getting up I may be on the ground But I'm never giving up It'll take some time But I'm gonna pick it up I'm always falling down And I'm never getting up

THE BALLAD OF BARBARELLA Drop it! Drop it in The hole you dug Whoa oh Drop it! Drop it in The hole you dug Sometimes life Seems so unfair Every other day's Like every other day I get up in the morning Just to sleep all day When you get home To the house I'm living in Thought I'd Never see you again And my heart beats Heavier than ever For the good times Lay in wait Every other day's Like every other day I don't know where The time goes ‘Til it's time to play Down the street from From the house I’m living in There’s a big beautiful lake In the summer The sum, the summer I’ll be swimming in For the good times Lay in wait
7.
STREET FIGHTER It’s killing time Tonight it will be killing time Till then I’ll be killing time Tonight we will be killing time Let’s go out and see What kind of trouble we can Inappropriately timed You stepped up to find There will be Hell to pay for this I’ve gotta back my baby Lay the bass drum down So get into my face Or get out of it now This is the start of something You gave yourself away That you are on fire for me And I burn for you This is the start of something
8.
PAST THE POINT Nineteen ninety-two Was the year I first met you There could not have been A dark cloud in the sky The forecast was wrong CUT TO: Two thousand-two I came across a picture of you Standing next to someone I don’t recognize It turned out to be me I’ll make my peace With you, not tonight Put it off If I can get away with it I set fire to you belonging Moving on and up I can’t deal with that I couldn’t burn my most precious memory Some sentimental side of me Can’t go through with it Burning my most favorite photo of us Oh how my eyes are sensitive to light You’re still the brightest light in my universe We were together but now forever The remains of us stain this picture frame I couldn’t burn my most precious memory Some spiteful switch in me Might set a match to it Burning my most favorite photo of us There’s no need to discuss There is no future for us Way past the point of no return

Loose Molars 03:25
LOOSE MOLARS I’ve lost my faith Which I equate to a toothache One I’ve let go on too long I’ve lost my nerve I need a head-on collision Like I need a sign from God I can’t make it up to you now It would take a miracle For me to not let you down I’ve lost my heart Not to say I ever had one Or ever the human race So let’s pretend We never had this conversation In which I stated my case so clearly Stand up and be a man Act like you give a damn I’ve extended my hand Take it and shake it, friend I can’t make it up to you now It would take a miracle For me to not let you down Stand up and be a man Tell me you have a plan I’m reaching out my hand Act like you give a damn Tell me you understand I’ve extended my hand Take it and shake it friend I’ve lost my faith Which I equate to a toothache One I’ve let go on too long Promise me this You’ll take my name off your hit list If I visit the dentist

YOUNG GUNS II You’ve got young guns And I’ve got young guns too Let’s get together And waste the whole afternoon I need a companion I’m looking for a champion And though I never thought I’d make it work Until I started falling for You’ve probably heard it many times, You’re gold How in this world Could such a beautiful face Get together If this is losing control Then I need a companion I’m looking for a champion You know you’ve probably Heard it many times You’re gold You’ve got gremlins And I’ve got gremlins too Wrestle your demons Let’s waste the whole afternoon

about

“The record is magnetic - hooks inside hooks inside hooks in ear-sticky
concentric circles, yielding an embarrassment of melody.” - City Arts

Wild Knights takes us through the darkness of self-doubt, obsession, and the struggle of self-actualization; our champion eventually pulling an emotional sword from a heart of stone, only to find it still beating after all.
