"Animal" as written by Conor Maynard, George Astasio, Jason Andrew Pebworth, Sophie Stern, Jonathan Christopher Shave, Joey Dyer, Kurtis Mackenzie and Jon Mills....
Hey what's the big deal?
Tell me how to feel?
I know where we boomeranged and fell from grace.
Point me to the stars I'm up for the chase.
I know where we fell on our face.
Jump with me.
You jump with me.

Hey, what's the big deal?
I'm an animal.
I'm an animal.
I'm an animal.

I don't want to boomerang.
I don't want to cannonball.
I'm not angling.
I don't want to fall.
Tell me I'm the anchor of my own ascension.
Tell me I'm a tourist in the fourth dimension?

Hey, what's the big deal?
I'm an animal.
I'm an animal.
I'm an animal.

Work it out.

I am vibrating at the speed of light.
Take my hand, we'll wind up the night.
Spin me, win me, lift me, kiss me.
Trip me, cuss me, bend me, trust me,
Touch me now.
You take my hand.
You trust me now
You understand.

So what's the big deal?
I'm an animal.
I'm an animal.
I'm an animal.

I am vibrating at the speed of light.

    General Commenti've only heard this song once (i wish i owned in time, but i dont) so my meaning might be wrong. i think its about how people act like animals instead of human beings sometimes.

    General CommentI recon its about the fact that everyone has such a big issue with people that are slightly 'different' to your average joe, and how this affects Michael, because of being gay. Good song.

    General CommentIn In Time, it says it was a completely meaningless song written spontaniously in about ten minuets.
    Haha. You're all wrong, I rein supreeme!
    ...anyway, does anyone know what's being said in the background when they're changing "I'm an animal..."?

    General CommentThe answer landed on my rooftop. Whoa.
    The future and the truth on my rooftop. Whoa.
    The future is calling me to work it out.
    Whoa.

    General CommentFor ten minutes, this poem is surely a masterwork within the constraints of being meaningless and being fleetly penned.

    This song rules...I've always loved "Losing My Religion", this takes maybe a close second for how much it rules.

    General CommentYeah it's "humans are animals" and, I think, a reference to quantum physics changing our perception of reality, yet at the same time we're still animals, so the meaning of quantum physics is fairly irrelevant. So you have "I'm vibrating at the speed of light" (as is everything) and "Tell me I'm a tourist in the fourth dimension" leading to "So what's the big deal? I'm an animal." Whatever, the song rocks ;o)
