So humane and so incredibly
Well preserved for a moment such as this
In his eyes ten thousand enemies
In his head one pocket for a kiss
All the animals hunting everything for something more or less

Lock all your animals in cages
Hide your weaknesses forget your fears
Live by the laws you made for your safety
Safe behind the walls you thought would last for years

He's just an isolated case
Johnny jumps and Johnny comes clean

Wise men and animals live by their instincts
Their motive fighting's their will to win
Wise man never loved doesn't need the complication
Passion brings no fascination
Doesn't like to think
Animal feelings need no hidden meanings
I'd love to have lied
But I couldn't so I cried

I'm not a messiah, I can't move a mountain
I'm not superman, I can't save the world
I'm sick of following, I'm sick of leaders
Nothing seems to help
But somethings got to have to
