"Domesticated Animals" as written by and Joshua Michael Homme Dean Anthony Fertita....
Today is the day, bewilderness
Comes to reclaim everything
Burning bridge lights up the sky
Zip your lip until you've picked a side

You get right up then sit back down
The revolution is one spin 'round
You get back up then sit right down
A revolution is one spin 'round

All for one, all for naught
Perish, baby, perish the thought
Beat the kids to the punch
You've got heart, I'll have it for lunch

You get right up then sit back down
The revolution is one spin 'round
You get back up then sit right down
Dizzy, dizzy, dizzy, we all fall down

Tell me, where's the goddamn gold?
Gold

Pretty pets, once were wild
Domesticated love slave, give us a smile
You got a number, is it the same?
Who you belong to?
You feral or tame? (Probably tame)

Tell us where you keep the gold (For what?)
We wanna help you rule the world (I think not)
We won't tell a single soul (So they all say)
So tell us, where's the goddamn gold?

I'll tell you where the gold is
It's in the ground
You wonder where's the reason?
It's in the lost and found

I'll tell you where the gold is
It's in the ground
You wonder where's the freedom?
In the lost and found
Still not found

I'll tell you where the gold is
It's all mine
Mine

Get right up, kneel and bow
Where's your revolution now?
Get back up, sit right down
Tears of gold, drink them down

Get right up, kneel and bow
Shrunken heads parade through town
Tears of gold, drink them down
Dizzy, dizzy, dizzy, we all fall down

    My InterpretationSo far after a few listens I think this song is about how Americans get upset about our current society/politics, but ultimately do nothing about it. (Get right up, sit back down). We fight and struggle for equality and fair wages, but always give in (I'll tell you where the gold is; It's all mine; Mine, from the perspective of the superior). Furthermore, we simply go back to appeasing our superiors of Government and large corporations (Get right up, kneel and bow)

    We are the Domesticated Animals.
