"Pet"... a raucous, spirited, little number about fighting back... with a pretty cool flute solo (yes, flute).

Don’t you ever get tired of being sick
You take me like a pill to get your kicks
Eat all your words ‘cause you can’t take them back
Sticks and stones go down easier than that
You say it’s for keeps
I say it’s for regrets
I will never be your pet
So I’m strung out here on your rocks again
‘Cause like a siren your tricks lured me in
Treading in the wake of your tidal wave
I held my breath, my head up, playing brave
Come clean - you wanted a dirty frontier
I’m worth more than that so don’t settle here
I will never be your pet.
