Savage Garden: The Animal Song

THE ANIMAL SONG
/Savage Garden/

When superstars and cannonballs
Are running through your head
And television freak show
Cops and robbers everywhere
Subway makes me nervous
People pushing me too far
I've got to break away
So take my hand now

[Chorus:]
'Cause I want to live like animals
Careless and free like animals
I want to live
I want to run through the jungle
With the wind in my hair
And the sand at my feet

I don't have any difficulties
Keeping to myself
Feelings and emotions
Better left up on the shelf
Animals and children tell the truth
They never lie
Which one is more human
There's a thought, now you decide

Compassion in the jungle
Compassion in your hands, yeah, yeah
Would you like to make a run for it
Would you like to take my hand, yeah, yeah

[Chorus]

Sometimes this life can get you down
It's so confusing
There's so many rules to follow
And I feel it
'Cause I just run away in my mind

Superstars and cannonballs
Are running through your head
Television freak show
Cops and robbers everywhere
Animals and children tell the truth
They never lie
Which one is more human
There's a thought, now you decide

Compassion in the jungle
Compassion in your hands, yeah, yeah
Would you like to make a run for it
Would you like to take my hand, yeah, yeah

[Chorus] [2x]

I want to live like animals
I want to live like animals
And I feel it
I want to live like animals ...
