"Animal Backwards" as written by and Gnewikow Bohlen....
In your reflection
I don't know you that well but I like your energy

She is a wolf looking through my window
She is a wolf looking through my window

You know I'm safe my wolf I wanna roam
Behind this pane, behind this wall of stone

Caught in the pull of your green eyed glow
I wanna feel my skin in the snow

She is a wolf looking through my window
She is a wolf looking through my window

Caught in the pull of your green eyed glow
I wanna feel my skin in the snow

You know I'm safe my wolf I wanna roam
Behind this pane, behind this wall of stone

She is a wolf looking through my window
She in a wolf looking through my window

My new love
Howling in the night outside
In the night outside

My new love
Howling in the night outside
In the moonlight

My new love
Howling in the moon light
In the moonlight

I don't know you that well but I like your energy
(your reflection)
I don't know you that well but I like your energy
(your reflection)

Caught in the pull of your green eyed glow
She is a wolf looking through my window
I wanna feel my skin in the snow
She is a wolf looking through my window
You know I'm safe my wolf I wanna roam
She is a wolf looking through my window
Behind this pane, behind this wall of stone
She is a wolf looking through my window

    General CommentThe riff is played backwards because they've gone INTO THE MIRROR. Because everything is backwards in a mirror. The first track sets it up perfectly. Animal Backwards is like looking back out into real life from inside the mirror. And she is looking down at him (wolf looking through my window).

    General Commentthis new album is great jswjsw...this is MTB branching off and stepping out of their comfort zone. its just a new version of MTB and you just need to see them live

    General Commenti'm pretty sure with each major release MTB has reinvented themselves over and over, with a track or 2 that sounds like it could be on highly refined pirates.

    Menos El Oso had some wacky tracks, but still had Hooray... very oldschool MTB.
    Planet of Ice was dark, classic rock, and wintery... but still had songs like throwin shapes.. again oldschool
    and then this album. very rockish, summery, and synthesized... but hints of old MTB, maybe even some SHARKS KEEP MOVING.. like on Dayglow Vista Rd.
