"The Animal Song" as written by and Daniel/hayes Jones....
When superstars and cannonballs are running through your head
And television freak show cops and robbers everywhere
Subway makes me nervous people pushing me too far
I've got to break away
So take my hand now
Cause I want to live like animals
Careless and free like animals
I want to live
I want to run through the jungle
With wind in my hair and the sand at my feet
I've been having difficulties keeping to myself
Feelings and emotions better left up on the shelf
Animals and children tell the truth, they never lie
Which one is more human
There's a thought, now you decide
Compassion in the jungle
Compassion in your hands, yeah
Would you like to make a run for it
Would you like to take my hand, yeah
Sometimes this life can get you down
It's so confusing
There's so many rules to follow
And I feel it
Cause I just run away in my mind
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Superstars and cannonballs running through your head
Television freak show cops and robbers everywhere
Animals and children tell the truth, they never lie
Which one is more human
There's a thought, now you decide
Compassion in the jungle
Compassion in your hands, yeah
Would you like to make a run for it
Would you like to take my hand, yeah

    General CommentI didn't see the movie, nor the clip, but the song just delights me. It's about freedom, freeing yourself from the downs and standards of society. Be yourself, live on, sing and love! (However, the song gets corny after a while, without loosing its light tone)

    General Commentit's about just running free and not being tied down by all these rules. He wants to just run from people and runs and just be free.
