Animal stalking you at night
I'm a sucker for someone
And I got the prey in sight
Lying on a bed of leaves
In the modern times
You forget and let your spirit breathe

Capture me my blood is red
Another victim of your ritual
For you my skin is shed
Ecstacy ain't what you find
In the modern world
One flick of my tongue changes
The meaning of the world
And you say

That's impossible
That's not impossible to do, oh
And you digest what I can see
The taste of you can be

I don't want to get eaten alive
Because you're so dangerous
No more hearts I can trust, you see
I don't want to get eaten alive
To be eaten alive
Eaten alive
I don't ever want to be
Eaten alive

Now I got you on the run
And the quicker my senses
And the chance is, I'm the faster one
I know the universal law
Primeval times
With a little stimulation
It'll come once more, and you say

That's impossible
It's not impossible to do, oh
And you digest what I can see
The taste of you can be

I don't want to get eaten alive
Because you're so dangerous
No more hearts I can trust
You see
I don't want to get eaten alive
To be eaten alive
Eaten alive
I don't ever want to be
Eaten alive

I don't want to get eaten alive
Because you're so dangerous
No more hearts I can trust
You see
I don't want to get eaten alive
To be eaten alive
Tie me to a tree, crawl all over me
You can rip my shirt, drag me in the dirt
I will be your slave, anything you say
I don't ever want to be eaten alive

I don't want to get eaten alive
Because you're so dangerous
No more hearts I can trust, you see
I don't want to get eaten alive
Because you're so dangerous
No more hearts I can trust, you see
I don't want to get eaten alive
Because you're dangerous
No more hearts I can trust, you see
I don't want to get eaten alive
To be eaten alive

Got to do her, crawl all over me
You can rip my shirt, drag me in the dirt
I will be your slave, anything you say
I don't ever want to be eaten alive

    General CommentEaten Alive" is a 1985 single released by Diana Ross on the RCA label. It was the first release off her Eaten Alive album, which was ultimately a critical and commercial failure in the states, but, did reach Top 10-Top 20 rankings in a few European countries like Norway and The Netherlands.
    The song was written by Barry Gibb, Maurice Gibb and Michael Jackson the latter also co-producing with Barry and his team. Jackson and Barry Gibb can be heard singing in the background of the song with Jackson at times co-singing lead with Ross. The song was a disappointment in the United States, peaking at #77 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, although it fared much better on the R&B singles chart where it peaked at number ten - helped by BET's heavy rotation of the music video.
    The video, inspired by The Island of Doctor Moreau was directed by David Hogan and featured the singer playing a cat-like demon seducing a man played by Joseph Gian after having been pursued by chimeras.
