lyrics

What is it about the horses and the dresses and the hills covered in green?
When I was a child living in the desert, walking in between the garbage and a beggar, reaching out for anything
Keeping clean was difficult
Dirty fingernails and knotted hair
At night I sit and watch the dancing and the careful
conversation as he gently leans towards her, and I almost scream

Like an animal
Itching sores on my skin
An animal
Eating everything in the kitchen
An animal
Touching myself
An animal
Watching human beings
On the screen
In my room
Unseen

Christopher had a voice for the theater
The rest of us spoke with a halt and a slur in our syllables
Tripping on consonants, distorting vowels
Not quite right
To be the beautiful one requires something other than desire
Something other than will
Good fortune
I've had some of that
More than my share, I'm sure
But still stuck

Like an animal
Itching sores on my skin
An animal
Eating everything in the kitchen
An animal
Touching myself
An animal
Watching human beings
On the screen
In my room
Unseen

What is it about the houses, and the flowers, and the big trees
Oh the luxury of a long walk
To walk and walk and walk without return
To be alone
Faraway from here
Alone
And suddenly
Someone appears
And suddenly
It is clear

The room is dark
I must go to bed
Like an animal
Burrowing
Like an animal
Twitching and shifting
An animal

What kind of animal cannot fall asleep?
What kind of animal has unnatural dreams?
