"Animal" as written by Mark O. Everett and Jim Lang....
If I could love you
I'm sure I would
If I could hold you
And feel understood

I'd be there now
But I don't know how
'Cause I am an animal

Bundle of rags
Wrap me up tight
Keep me safe inside
Warm at night

I am no more
I am not good
I am so sorry
If you misunderstood

I'd make it up
But I cannot
If I am an animal

    General CommentThis song kills me. You could be having sex with three people whilst hanging with your best friends and meeting the celebrity you idolize the most and high on the drug of your choice and STILL be depressed as hell after listening to this song.

    General CommentHeh.

    This song gives off vibes of "I want you, I need you, there ain't no way I'm ever gonna love you". The speaker distancing himself from the relationship by the fact that the person he's speaking to thinks he's an animal anyway. You can't really love someone you don't understand. Or someone who doesn't understand you.

    General CommentI think it talks about a "relationship" where the guy loves in a way a girl, but can't love her in the way she'd want... but still the love she has for him won't keep him apart... he feels somehow it's what he needs he's an animal... but at the same time he feels bad cuz he's hurting her in a way... in a silent way...
