"Animals" as written by and Johan Schuster Benjamin Levin....
Baby I'm preying on you tonight
Hunt you down eat you alive
Just like animals
Animals
Like animals-mals

Maybe you think that you can hide
I can smell your scent for miles
Just like animals
Animals
Like animals-mals
Baby I'm

So what you trying to do to me
It's like we can't stop, we're enemies
But we get along when I'm inside you, eh
You're like a drug that's killing me
I cut you out entirely
But I get so high when I'm inside you

Yeah you can start over you can run free
You can find other fish in the sea
You can pretend it's meant to be
But you can't stay away from me
I can still hear you making that sound
Taking me down rolling on the ground
You can pretend that it was me
But no, oh

Baby I'm preying on you tonight
Hunt you down eat you alive
Just like animals
Animals
Like animals

Maybe you think that you can hide
I can smell your scent for miles
Just like animals
Animals
Like animals-mals
Baby I'm

So if I run it's not enough
You're still in my head forever stuck
So you can do what you wanna do, eh
I love your lies I'll eat 'em up
But don't deny the animal
That comes alive when I'm inside you

Yeah you can start over you can run free
You can find other fish in the sea
You can pretend it's meant to be
But you can't stay away from me
I can still hear you making that sound
Taking me down rolling on the ground
You can pretend that it was me
But no, oh

Baby I'm preying on you tonight
Hunt you down eat you alive
Just like animals
Animals
Like animals-mals

Maybe you think that you can hide
I can smell your scent for miles
Just like animals
Animals
Like animals-mals
Baby I'm

Don't tell no lie, lie lie lie
You can't deny, ny ny ny
The beast inside, side side side
Yeah yeah yeah

No girl don't lie, lie lie lie (No girl don't lie)
You can't deny, ny ny ny (You can't deny)
The beast inside, side side side
Yeah yeah yeah

Yo,
Whoa

Just like animals
Animals

Just like animals (Yeah)
Animals (Yeah)
Like animals-mals (Yeah)
Ow

Baby I'm preying on you tonight
Hunt you down eat you alive
Just like animals
Animals
Like animals-mals

Maybe you think that you can hide
I can smell your scent for miles
Just like animals
Animals
Like animals-mals
Baby I'm

Don't tell no lie, lie lie lie
You can't deny, ny ny ny
The beast inside, side side side
Yeah yeah yeah

No girl don't lie, lie lie lie (No girl don't lie)
You can't deny, ny ny ny (You can't deny)
The beast inside, side side side
Yeah yeah yeah

    My OpinionI think its about a guys obsessesion with either an ex, or just a random girl (customer) in his life. He's convinced he means as much to her as she does to him. The video shows her turning down his advances so she's either not interested or has moved on.

    My InterpretationHe follows her around because of his strong attraction to her. She might get the feeling that she’s being watched, because in the music video, she turns to look behind her. His obsession with her is out of control. He examines pictures of her, various parts… like her eyes and lips. He takes these pictures of her, and sorts through them. “Maybe you think that you can hide.” Implies she is on the run. She knows about him, but she is hiding… I’m guessing recently moved. “I love your lies. I’ll eat them up.” She tries to convince him and herself that she doesn’t love him. He knows it’s not true. When he’s inside her, they both come alive. “You can start over, you can run free, you can find other fish in the sea.” He’s telling her, go on and date the guy she’s with or other guys, but she’s his. She can’t stay away from the sex. “You can pretend it’s meant to be.” I take it as she’s living a lie with another guy, and he’s saying go ahead and pretend her lover is the one. He says it almost mocking her. He knows he’s the best at it, or at least she likes the way he does it more. “So what you trying to do to me” She’s torturing him. “It's like we can't stop, we're enemies, But we get along when I'm inside you, eh. You're like a drug that's killing me” They obviously have been together at one point. They both treat each other badly. Maybe when they were together she used him for sex, and he’s addicted. “I cut you out entirely. But I get so high when I'm inside you” He tried to forget about her, but can’t. “I can still hear you making that sound.” Her moans. “Baby I'm preying on you tonight. Hunt you down eat you alive” He’s found her. He wants to eat her up. The song is about strong attraction to someone you can’t let go of. The guy resorts to stalking. In the video he takes pictures of her while she sleeps, and lays on her bed. She doesn’t know he’s around. I don’t think he means to hurt her, or he would have. He just wants to be near her. There’s also the scene when they both are doing it, and blood is on their bodies. I think it’s symbolic for how evil or dirty their love making is. She looks like she’s into it, completely his. At the club, he tries to say hi, but she brushes him off. Either this was before their relationship and she isn’t interested, or she knows exactly who he is, and she’s tired of him. I really think she only wanted sex from him in the past, and nothing more. She tried moving on, and they both can’t. He doesn’t really care what she does. The way she gives herself to him is insane. Look at her in their love scenes. That’s all he wants. Her to want him as much as he wants her. I think he gets off on stalking her.

    My InterpretationI think the song is about a love-hate relationship. It's clear when he says 'it's like we can't stop we're enemies' meaning we hate each other. 'But I get along when I'm inside you' meaning I can't resit you. That's how I see it. No matter what the music video implies

    My OpinionIt's about the animal desires that every man has.
