"Treason! Animals." as written by Alexander Paul Kapranos Huntley, Nicholas John Mccarthy, Robert Hardy and Paul Robert Thompson....
Hey friends when will you get here?
Hey friends I need to hear voices
I don't care what you talk about
Hey friends I just need to hear voices
Could you bring the manual?
Bring the repair manual?
Something has really gone wrong here, here
Something has really really gone wrong

I'm the king of the animals
I'm the king of the trees and animals
Self-crowned king of the trees and the animals
I'm a king so give me a crown
I am an animal
Give me an animal crown

Hey friends when will you get here?
Hey friends this is my kingdom
This is a tree
This is an animal
Ask any one of them
And they daren't deny it
Ask any one of them
And they daren't deny it
No don't you dare deny it
This is my tree
This is my animal
But something has really gone wrong

I'm the king of the animals
I'm the king of the trees and animals
Self-crowned king of the trees and the animals
I'm a king so give me a crown
I am an animal
Give me an animal crown

I am an animal, oh give me an animal crown...

I'm in love with a narcissist
And I know for the mirror told me
I'm in love with my nemesis
And I know for the mirror told me
I'm in love with a narcissist
And I know for the mirror told me
I'm in love with my pharmacist
And I know for the mirror told me
I'm in love with a narcissist
And I know for the mirror told me
I'm in love with my analyst
And I know for the mirror told me
I'm in love with my nemesis
And I know for the mirror told me
I'm in love with a narcissist
And I know for the mirror told me

Hey friends when will you get here?
Hey friends I need to hear voices
I don't care what you talk about
Hey friends I just need to hear voices
Something has really really gone wrong

    My InterpretationThis reminds me a lot of false bravado or false confidence. This person has established himself king of pretty much everything, but despite how narcissistic and confident he is, he seems uneasy without any supporters or friends. Therefore, even though he is completely absorbed into himself, he is still weak on the inside, needing others to affirm his status.

    "Hey friends, when will you get here? Hey friends, I need to hear voices. I don't care what you talk about. Hey friends, I just need to hear voices."

    A peek inside the brain of a megalomaniac.

    My InterpretationI got something completely different from it so I guess I'll add my two scents.

    my interpretation is that the song is about the relationship between humans and the rest of the animals. "Hey friends when will you get here? Hey friends I need to hear voices" is about how humans are so "ahead" of other animals that we have no one to talk to but ourselves. "Something has really gone wrong" could be about man made extinctions or the eviroment and we have no one to ask for help but ourselves. "Self-crowned king of the trees and the animals" humans log which animals hunt which, and naturally we put ourselves at the top of that list. "This is a tree, This is an animal, Ask any one of them, And they daren't deny it" humans "decided" which life forms are fauna and which are flora, and obviously if you ask one of them it will be unable to deny it.
    "I'm in love with a narcissist, And I know for the mirror told me" again, no one except humans can talk, so we just talk to ourselves, fall in love with ourselves, medicate ourselves etc.

    I might be way of but I'd love some feedback :)

    Song MeaningPretty much what essanay thinks. This person (could be the singer) Has made himself the head or alpha of his world but he realizes he's nothing without his yes men. He's spent too much time on his own talking to himself, looking at himself, questioning who he is and he's starting to not believe in his own self importance anymore. His peers or underlings are the ones that give him his self belief and he's realized he's nothing without them. He needs to be lost in his own lie because without it there is no meaning. Better happy and deluded.
