about

This vocal was a live take meant to be a scratch for the band to follow along with. Producer Jesse Siebenberg liked it's laid back performance and so he kept it as the final take. For that reason the last pre-chorus ended up being:

"And it's lime lines and pickup lines
Casting calls but just at night
Casting calls all through the day
On the hunt again"

Instead of how it was written:

"And it's lime lines and pickup lines
Tending bar but just at night
Casting calls all through the day
On the hunt again"

lyrics

lyrics:


Well he's not your average savage
I'm quite sure I can manage
but I'm at a disadvantage
and i know what a dangerous man is

Well it's fire running through his veins
Fire running through his main
Harder to stop than a speeding train
On the hunt again

And those disco lights go late into night
When the drinks aren't served and there might be fight
The tabs and cabs are gone... at least until the dawn

She's not your average savage
She's right there where the band is
Give a damn where her man is
As long as he's there when she's saddest

And it's just a little game she plays
Making up for the womans wage
Gotta do something in this day and age
and the hunt again

And those disco lights go late into night
She gets home late and it started a fight
and it rages on and on... at least until the dawn

He's not your average savage
He's old but he can manage
The girls still take his hand it's
Their pleasure to spend his cabbage

And it's Dracula no blood stains
Ex wives and everything
Blackin out all the grey
and he's on the hunt again

Those disco lights go late into night
When the bell bottoms suited him fine
and he knows those days are gone
He can't go until the dawn

He's not your average savage
Give a damn who the man is
Well he knows who tips the fattest
When he gets our glass of sadness

And it's lime lines and pickup lines
Casting calls but just at night
Casting calls all through the day
On the hunt again

And the disco light go late into night
When the tip jar's full with the dollars and dimes
and he's got himself a blonde... at least until the dawn.
