Lyrics to Beast

When Lock finds Hailey sitting in the hotel lobby he can tell by her cardigan that she doesn’t belong, but she insists she’s a fan. He tests her by dropping a line from one of Half-Life’s most popular songs into their conversation. If you’ve read the book, you might recognize some of these lyrics. We included part of them as an epigraph and the chorus appears in the story a few times.

Beast by Half-Life

Live your pain.

Burn it out like stars.
Take it all. X3

I swallowed planets
that fell from the sky.
I captured angels
and led them to die.

Let me lead you
down
into the belly of the beast.

Let me lead you
down X3
into the belly of the beast.

I am the nightmare
that keeps you awake.
I am the reaper,
your souls mine to take.

Let me lead you
down
into the belly of the beast.

Let me lead you
down X3
into the belly of the beast.

I am the yearning
you cannot deny.
I am the lover
that eats you alive.

Let me taste you.
Take it all. X3

Let me lead you
down
into the belly of the beast.

Let me lead you
down X3
into the belly of the beast.
