THE ANIMAL SONG
by 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
'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
would you like to make a run for it
would you like to take my hand, yeah yeah
'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
Sometimes this life can get you down
it's so confusing,
there's so many rules to follow
and I feel it
and I just run away in my mind
When 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
would you like to make a run for it
would you like to take my hand, yeah yeah
'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
'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 yeah yeah
