"Animal Impulses" as written by and Christopher Corner....
Shine razor eyes before the walls come down
Wilder than lions, louder than sound
The birds and the bees are getting older now
There’s a cold breeze blowing over my soul

Shine razor eyes in delight
Shine razor eyes before you die
Shine razor eyes in this light
There’s a cold breeze blowing over my soul

Shine razor eyes before the walls come down
Wilder than lions, louder than sound
The birds and the bees are getting older now
There’s a cold breeze blowing over my soul

Shine razor eyes in delight
Shine razor eyes before you die
Shine razor eyes in this light
There’s a cold breeze blowing over my soul

I'm tired of this human duet
No civilizing hides
Our animal impulses

Shine razor eyes in delight
Shine razor eyes before you die
Shine razor eyes in this light
There’s a cold breeze blowing over my soul

I'm tired of this human duet
No civilizing hides
Our animal impulses

Our animal impulses

    General CommentThis song makes me think of a psycopathic personnality. It seems to describe a very cruel, cold and evil person. 'Razor eyes' refers to a dangerous person; since the eyes are the reflect of our souls, when the singer says this, he implies a predatory and evil kind of person. He also mentions the powerfulness of that person by saying his eyes are 'wilder than lions, louder than sound' signifying how intimidating and dominating he is. Also, 'cold breeze blowing over my soul' suggests the coldness of the person, an emotionless, fearless and incapable of loving human being which provokes a reaction of shock and fear to the normal people (the ones that can feel and love) that notices the crualty of such a type of person. 'Shine razor eyes before the walls come down' refers to the manipulative trait of a psycopath that makes him look very charismatic and loveable when really, he's the worst of all. So, by saying this, he's telling "have fun while you still can as they havn't seen your true nature yet".
    'All the birds and the bees are getting older now'
    For this one, I'm not really sure, but I feel that this could mean that poeple start to see who he truly is, they get wiser? So he has to be smarter and more cruel, go to the epitath of his sickness so he can succeed in controlling everything and filling his narcissistic needs.

    'Shine razor eyes in delight,
    Shine razor eyes before you die'
    The chorus is some sort of encouragement for him to go deeper in his illness, go crazy, more maleficiantly amazing. This suggests a certain fascination in the evilness of that person that is a terrible human being, but also a very impressive one. Like an ephemere masterpiece that you truly want to watch until it ends.
    'Shine razor eyes in the light'
    Maybe he's encouraging him to express all his madness, his skills, his 'talent' because the evilness of his madness is so impressive it becomes fascinating (eventhough we know it's surely not worth encouraging...but it's a artistic and intelligent way of expressing the curiosity one can have when he sees such a person)

    'I'm tired of this human duet'
    This is talking about the social masks. The duality with the appearence you show and who you truly are. Here, he's saying he's tired of this. The psychopathic personnality is a pro with this kind of thing, because, as I said earlier, he looks charming and perfect when he's actually very dangerous.
    'No civilizing hides our animal impulses'
    With that, he justifies his previous statement by implying that we can pretend all we want, try to civilize people with morals, our animal impulses will always prevail. I don't completely agree with this way of thinking, but a psychopath tend to believe this passionately. Because he doesn't believe in empathy and altruism, he would think we're all just animals with instincts that only uses civilization outlook to fit in. Implying we're just egocentric and impulsive people that only uses others for our benefit.

    This is my interpretation of this pretty awesome song.
