A Perfect Circle – Pet lyrics

Don't fret precious I'm here.
Step away from the window.
Go back to sleep

Lay your head down my child
I won't let the boogeyman come

Counting bodies like sheep
To the rhythm of the war drums

Pay no mind to the rabble
Pay no mind to the rabble

Head down, go to sleep
To the rhythm of the war drums

Pay no mind to what other voices say
They don't care about you, like I do
Safe from pain, and truth, and choice
And other poison devils
See, they don't give a fuck about you, like I do

Just stay with me, safe and ignorant
Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep

Lay your head down my child
I won't let the boogeyman come
Count the bodies like sheep
To the rhythm of the war drums

Pay no mind to the rabble
Pay no mind to the rabble

Head down, go to sleep
To the rhythm of the war drums

I'll be the one to protect you from
Your enemies and all your demons

I'll be the one to protect you from
A will to survive and a voice of reason

I'll be the one to protect you from
Your enemies and your choices son
They're one in the same
I must isolate you
Isolate and save you from yourself

Swayin' to the rhythm of the new world order and count the bodies like sheep
To the rhythm of the war drums

The boogeymen are comin'
The boogeymen are comin'

Keep your head down, go to sleep
To the rhythm of the war drums

Stay with me
Safe and ignorant
Just stay with me
Hold you and protect you from the other ones
The evil ones don't love you son
Go back to sleep

    Its about someone thinking they know whats good for someone else and being overprotective, he says "Just stay with me, safe and ignorant" meaning just be my pet, I know whats best for you, you don't, he also says "I'll be the one to protect you from A will to survive and a voice of reason," those arent things you protect someone from and neither is, "Safe from pain, and truth, and choice And other poison devils," those arent real poison devils, I think its about someone controlling someone else, making them think they are there to help but all they want is a pet to do what they say and not question, hence the title "Pet"
