Silence is gone
lying to wait
Sunken eyes, can't hide your fate
Too many ways to back out now
We carry the weight, victim of the crime

I'm just an animal and I can never stop tryin' to get back to you
And they won't understand, I don't expect they can know what you put me through
'cause it's all too much and the same lost touch
and we always move in waves
I'm just an animal and I can never stop tryin' to get back to you


If it all was true, if these places were real
I'd get back to you and put my hands on the wheel


I'm just an animal and I can never stop tryin' to get back to you
And they won't understand, I don't expect they can know what you put me through
'cause it's all too much and the same lost touch
and we always move in waves
I'm just an animal and I can never stop tryin' to get back to you

    Song MeaningVocalist Philip Stencil interview with VICE on the meaning: “It’s about holding onto something that’s gone. Most people, myself included, seem to convince themselves that somehow things will go back to the way they once were, even after it’s turned to shit. It's really terrible, because everyone around you sees how crazy you're acting over losing something, but you're the last one to come to your senses about it.”
