Animal

Written by Comfort Cat

INTRO VERSE

i want to be good to you
i wish i were too good to be true
i want to clean and care for you / be only kind and dear to you
but all I touch don’t seem to grow / no matter what I think I know

i always seem to be (i always seem to be)
the screaming child on the plane / causing nothing but pain

CHORUS

i am an animal
that longs to be protected from the rain
under a train

i am an animal
that longs to be protected from the shadows
that grow so long and dense when you are gone
you take so long

Woah

VERSE II

but all I touch don’t seem to grow
I know i’m better off alone
pacing within walls of stone
though I get lonely, I get low
you think you’ll cure me til i sing ‘amazing grace’
you share your love with me, i’ll eat your fucking face
i don’t see why we should pretend
I won’t be tranquil when I’m dead

the screaming bitch on the train
feeling nothing but pain

CHORUS

i am an animal
that longs to be protected from the rain
under a train

i am an animal
that longs to be protected from the shadows
that grow so long and dense when you are gone
you take so long

Woah

VERSE III

though all I touch don’t seem to grow
I’ll never tell you you should go
I don’t know what I’m going to do
your mother thinks I’m bad for you

you prob’ly think that I just haven’t tried hard enough, but
I never tried. I never really gave a fuck.
I just want all of this to end.
no more effort to expend
the screaming cat in the street becomes a rancid piece of meat

DOUBLE-CHORUS

i want to be good to you
i long to be protected from the rain
I am an animal

i want to care for you
I long to be protected from the shadows
that grow so long and dense when you are gone
you take so long

i am an animal
that longs to be protected from the rain
under a train

i am an animal
that longs to be protected from the shadows
that grow so long and dense when you are gone
you take so long

CODA

i want to be good to you
i am an animal
i want to care for you
i am an animal
be kind and dear to you
i am an animal

do do do do do do do do
