Savage Garden – The Animal Song lyrics

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 wind in my hair and the sand at my feet...

I've been having 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...

'Cause I want to live
Like animals
Careless and free
Like animals
I want to live
I want to run through the jungle
With 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
'Cause I just run away in my mind...

Superstars and cannonballs 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...

'Cause I want to live
Like animals
Careless and free
Like animals
I want to live
I want to run through the jungle
With 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 wind in my hair... Yeah...

I want to live
I want to live
I want to live
Like animals
I want to live
Like animals
Oh no Oh no
Like animals
Oh no...

Cause I don't feel it
Like animals
I don't feel it noi...
Like animals
I don't feel it
Like animals
I don't feel it
Like animals
I don't feel it no...
Like animals
