The Lyrics

Inspiration for this one came form resident author Wild Child JIN... I think what I am trying to get across with this parody is how alone someone can feel in the world and the accompanying separation from humanity feeling. There IS a difference between actually living life and just existing...
Grrrrrrrrrrr
Grrrrrrrrrrr
Grrrrrrrrrrr

I want you to hunt me, like I'm a lone wolf
Keep trackin' me, it’s what I like
So girl forget about your world cuz I’m like a shadow in the night
I wanna make your beg for mercy, the victim of one with a shattered mind

[CHORUS:]
Sometimes your world makes me feel like I'm a feral child in the wild
Held in captivity, one that you'll never love
Held in captivity, one that can tear you apart
Feral child in the wild...
Like one that’s condemned to roam the land
Cuz there’s no one who really understands how to make me feel _quite_ human
Got to face the reality I feel like I'm a feral child in the wild
Held in captivity, one that you'll never love
Held in captivity, one that can tear you apart
Always alone...

Want you to hunt me like a scavenger in the night
Hold me down with restraints, make them real tight
No one will ever know the secrets that I'm keepin', won’t let you inside
But if you enter, you ain't escapin', be ready to put up a fight

Sometimes the world makes me feel like I'm a feral child in the wild
Held in captivity, one that you'll never love
Held in captivity, one that can tear you apart
Feral child in the wild...
Like one that’s condemned to roam the land
Cuz there’s no one who really understands how to make me feel _quite_ human
Got to face the reality I feel like I'm a feral child in the wild
Held in captivity, one that you'll never love
Held in captivity, one that can tear you apart
Always alone...


[BRIDGE:]
Take me by surprise
Yes, look me in the eyes
Try to make me believe
In more than my basic needs
Take me by surprise
Yes, look me in the eyes
Try to make me believe
In more than my basic needs

Sometimes the world makes me feel like I'm a feral child in the wild
Held in captivity, one that you'll never love
Held in captivity, one that can tear you apart
Feral child in the wild...
Like one that’s condemned to roam the land
Cuz there’s no one who really understands how to make me feel _quite_ human
Feral child in the wild...
Child in the wild...
Feral child in the wild...
Lone cry in the world…

NP WCJ, the hardest part was to try to convey the feeling of one living alone detached from society as Rihanna's song is the opposite-full of love & seduction...
