"I Am An Animal" as written by and Pete Townshend....
I was always here in the silence
But I was never under your eye
Gather up your love in some wiseness
For every memory shall always survive
And you will see me

I am an animal
My teeth are sharp and my mouth is full
And the passion is so strong when I'm alone
Loneliness will change me

I am a vegetable
I get my body badly pulled
And I'm rooted to the spot
Nothing will rearrange me

I'm looking back
And I can't see the past anymore, so hazy
I'm on a track and I'm traveling so fast
Oh, for sure I'm crazy

I am a human being
And I don't believe all the things I'm seeing
I got nowhere to hide anymore
I'm losing my way

I am an angel
I booked in here, I came straight from hell
And I don't know how to lie anymore
I'm boozing to pray

I'm looking back
And I can't see the past anymore, so hazy
I'm on a track and I'm traveling so fast
Oh, for sure I'm crazy

I was always here in the silence
But I was never under your eye
Gather up your love in some wiseness
For every memory shall always survive
And you will see me

I will be immersed
Queen of the fucking universe
And I don't know what I have anymore
Anymore than you do

I am a nothing king
Been right around on a golden ring
And I don't know where you are anymore
I've got no clue

I'm looking back
And I can't see the past anymore, so hazy
I'm on a track and I'm traveling so fast
Oh, for sure I'm crazy

I am an animal

    General CommentI agree. This is trult a Pete Townshend masterpiece. He sings it so brilliantly. I think it's the best song on the Album.
