"Animal" as written by and Jackie Greene....
My heart is beating hard
Although it's reckless and abandon
Do your best to understand, lil honey
I do not care for most possessions
For I'm possessed
By something other than the foreign things
We buy ourselves with money

I do not have to run the race
Beside the man, inside this place
Of sharp turns and suburban satisfaction
Baby, don't mistake me for someone who doesn't ache
I'm the same as you, with a different reaction

[Chorus: ]
I was born an animal
Wild, wild animal
I was born an animal

My path is an endless path
It's a long look in the mirror
Never do I near my destination
For out here among the strange encounters
I've counted on my hands, to fight and stand
The trials and tribulations

But don't take my words as crudity
I've got a gentle soul
Deep beneath the bricks
And I, got to haul myself around it
Yeah, I'm out here trying to do my best
To stay alive among the the rapids and the lies
That many a man have drowned in

[Chorus: ]

Oh yeah...yeah...oh yeah

This times are desparate times
We spotted and surrounded
By hounds and vultures, lean and unforgiving
We walk upon two legs as men
We burn it down, just to build again
Will not make a change, to how we're living

But I believe a change'll come for us, and those who demand it
For those who can't stand it
Living wild in the gutter
And on that day the sun will burn like golden hammer
And we will understand how and learn how, to live with each other

[Chorus: ]

Ah...oh...oh yeah...ah...oh..awh...oh...oh yeah...
