There was a time when my world was filled with darkness, darkness, darkness
And I stopped dreaming now I'm supposed to fill it up with something, something , something
In your eyes I see the eyes of somebody I knew before long long long ago
But I'm still trying to make my mind up
Am I free or am I tied up

I change shapes just to hide in this place but I'm still, I'm still an animal
Nobody knows it but me when I slip yeah I slip
I'm still an animal

There is a hole and I tried to fill up with money, money , money
But it gets bigger to your hopes is always

Running, running, running

In your eyes I see the eyes of somebody of who could be strong
Tell me if I'm wrong
And now I'm pulling your disguise up
Or you free or are you tied up

I change shapes just to hide in this place but I'm still I'm still an animal
Nobody knows it but me when I slip
I'm still an animal

I change shapes just to hide in this place but I'm still I'm still an animal
Nobody knows it but me when I slip yeah I slip
I'm still an animal

I change shapes just to hide in this place but I'm still I'm still an animal
Nobody knows it but me when I slip yeah I slip
I'm still an animal x2

    General CommentI love this song. I think its about being unfaithful to a lover you've lost interest in or at least thinking about it.

    Song MeaningI think its about someone who keeps changing to keep themselves interesting so their friends don't get bored with them. They change so much that they eventually don't know who they are anymore. They try to make it better with material things and adventures, but they can hardly function anymore. They just keep changing, And they can't stop. "In your eyes I see somebody I knew before long long long ago" means she's looking in the mirror and remembers who she used to be. "I'm still trying to make my mind up, am i free or an I tied up" means she is trying to figure out if the change is what she wants or if its what the others want her to be, "In your eyes I see the eyes of somebody who could be strong" means she is looking at herself and telling herself to stay strong. "Now i'm pulling your disguise up" means she is trying to become herself again.
