I must be leaving now
Because maybe
I'm full of likes and dislikes
The noise on the street is unbearable
But maybe
I have got nowhere to go

So I wanna be a bat
And I want to touch the sun
I will try to force a smile

I cannot stand this heat
Please tell me
Where I am right now

I woke up at midnight again
Oh baby
I did not know what to do next
I can't see
But I can feel, all the time
Oh baby
I have got nothing to lose

Just I wanna be a bat
And I want the shining star
I will try to force a cry

I cannot stand this heat
Please tell me
Where I am right now

    General CommentIt is about a person who cannot stand all the everyday stress he/she is going through. Being a bat is escaping the city life and having the freedom to go anywhere. This is what I get from it. Oh and yes, Subhuman is a great song!

    General CommentI cant help but feel like the bat, touch the sky reference is linked to the woke up at midnight? an oxymoron? a double negative?

    Maybe the song is about feeling you're opposite from everything else out there, but, you still want to leave which means doing something contradictory to what you are.

    ...i think...
