A possible reference to the classic British film 'If..'. The scene in the cafe seems to offer musical resonance with the track and also directly refers to being a 'tiger' before the couple then 'attack'...
May I bang with this?

I’m like this, and you're like this.
(We tigers, we tigers, woop!)

Hey kids, let’s pick up sticks!
Let’s make out the sounds of our bones.
All dogs invited if everything feels wrong, then we need a little bangin’ goin on.
1-2-3, arms for the trees, self-seekers vomiting doubts,
I changed all your words but my poltergeist concurs that words aren't even necessary right now.

But I’m a noisy singer singing at a dinner: dinners are much stranger now.

Everybody’s welcome, everybody’s welcome,
Tigers tigers tigers tigers tigers tigers!
Oh, ah, oh.
Katydid, katydid!
Oh, ah, oh.
Ogres ogres ogres ogres ogres ogres!
Oh, ah, oh, oh ah oh. Oh ah oh--

I’ve felt worse, but I feel the curse of knowing what I shouldn't be,
Don't know where we will go, but let's walk around and pretend to own houses we see.
Kiss for a kiss, love change for chips, rules; but I thought you and I,
Remember you, young duck you crashed at my apartment. You kept me up and made me smile.

Now I'm a noisy singer singing at a dinner: dinners are much stranger now.

Everybody’s welcome, everybody’s welcome

Tigers tigers tigers...

    General Commenti'm pretty sure it's "everybody's welcome" in the chorus.

    General CommentI thought most of the lyrics were completely different.
    It's amazing how they can sound like 286529862095 things at once.
