"In The Jungle" as written by and Nicholls....
In the jungle you can sleep
With the commandments at your feet
Where the devil lays his hand

You don't even need to think
I'm tearing holes without a sink
But I know just where I stand

Lines from the story you put before me
I don't know what to choose
Under the oak tree tin all around me
I don't know what to prove

Yeah she felt what you felt like hell

In the jungle you're in the jungle
You're in the jungle that's you
In the jungle you're in the jungle
You're in the jungle oh

And I'll be waiting for a hit yeah
Ain't gonna seem fair tonight
And I'll keep havin' other fits
Because it makes me feel alright
Alright alright yeah oh right
Right oh yeah

So if you should need a hand
Write down the address of the land
But I'm running out of time

I'll tell you when it's time to leave

You're never gonna get clean

    General CommentI think that line kinda means she felt what he was going through she felt like hell because he did, But this song is one of the best i love it when the guitar and bass drop and the drums still hang on and hes screaming in the jungle, that part kicks so much ass, i love these guys.

    General CommentGet this: The leader singer, Craig Nicholls, wrote these the lyrics for this song when he was on acid!! I read it in an interview with the bass player of The Vines.

    General Commenti like this song, but no matter how many times i listen to it there is always a fear of hearing this high pitched voice scream: "YOU KNOW WHERE YOU ARE? YOU'RE IN THE JUNGLE BABY! YOU GONNA DIIIEEEE!!!!"

    General CommentThis is one of Craig's best songs! The lyrics are confusing, and he probably has no idea what they mean either (I'm not sure I believe he was on acid, but he is definatly a huge stoner - I bet his bong has a pet name).

    The music is great! The fast changes in tempo and pitch create a lot of tension that you can't help but get up and jump around to.

    General CommentGeez I could cry... I cannot stand it when people don't write the lyrics the correct way. It just gets confusing...

    In the jungle you can sleep
    With the commandments at your feet
    Where the devil lays his hand
    You don't even need to think
    I'm tearing holes without a sink
    But I know just where I stand

    Lines from the story you put before me
    I don't know what to choose
    Under the oak tree, tin all around me
    I don't know what to proove

    Yeah! She! Felt! You! Felt! Like! Hell!

    In the jungle (yeah!), you're in the jungle (yeah!)
    You're in the jungle (that's you!)
    In the jungly (yeah!), you're in the jungle (yeah!)
    You're in the jungle, oh...

    Ahhh....

    And I'll be waiting for a hit, yeah
    Ain't gonna seem fair tonight
    And I'll keep having other fits, yeah
    Because it makes me feel alright
    Alright, alright, oh, yeah, right, oh yeah, yeah

    So if you should need a hand
    Write down the address of the land
    But I'm running out of time

    Under the oak tree, tin all around me
    I don't know what to prove

    Lines from the story (yeah!) you put before me (she!)
    Can't do without me (felt!) like I could (I'll tell you when it's time to leave)
    Under the oak tree (you!), tin all around me (felt!)
    Can't do without me (like) like I could (I'll tell you when it's time to leave)

    In the jungle (yeah!), you're in the jungle (she!)
    You're in the jungle (felt!) (I'll tell you when it's time to leave)
    In the jungle (you!), you're in the jungle (felt!)
    You're in the jungle (like!) (I'll tell you when it's time to leave)

    You're never gonna get clean

    In the jungle (yeah!), you're in the jungle (yeah!)
    (You're never gonna get clean)
    In the jungle, ohhh...

    k, just thought I'd write the correct way. Sorry if it bugs you I just like it written the way it is.

    General CommentOh duh, I forgot to comment this song. It's like one of the best Vines song. God, I love it. I listen to it all the time. I love the way it's like really like... um... it has a kind bouncing beginning and then it gets kind of slow and all and then it gets all fast and shit. It's so fucking awesome. The Vines are brilliant.
