Lyrics

It propped itself on two, it made itself some shoes
It cut and combed its hair, and sat beneath a roof
It tried to forget the symptoms and effects,
The secret silhouette, the past will happen yet

There's an animal in you
Beneath the skin so let it be true
And build and bar a gate, or it will be coming through
And keep an eye on the animal in you

Advancement is our creed, but still the darkest deeds
Belay our largest strides and are tugging at our sides
The heart of all the ill is selfishness of will
What once was preservation preserves the darkness still

There's an animal in you
It's one small step, so let it be true
And build and bar a gate, or it will be coming through
And keep an eye on the animal in you

And when you raise a hand against your fellow man
And fear the strange and new, the animal's in you
When you cannot forget your hardest lesson yet
You are not justified, but the animal's inside

There's an animal in you
Beneath the skin so let it be true
And build and bar a gate, or it will be coming through
And keep an eye on the animal in you
