lyrics

If I were an animal,
I'd love you like a man,
ever-faithful to your scent,
and to the soft touch of your callused hand

If I were an animal, dear,
where you went I'd follow you
If I were the bigger fish,
and you the small, I'd swallow you

But since I'm not an animal,
the conversation's done
We run outta shit to say –
oh, curse this human tongue

(hand's writing on the wall again / our friends are like a lions' den)

If I were an elephant,
I'd remember to forget
that if there is an ugly silence,
you cannot make it your pet

And if I were a vulture,
I'd watch you from above,
but since I'm not a vulture,
I cannot call hunger love

(hand's writing on the wall again / these blankets are a lions' den)

Guess I am that cannibal
that eats the feeding hand
but I am not an animal
and I can't be your man

No I can't be your man
No I can't be your



man
