Animal
Miike Snow Lyrics


There was a time when my world was filled with darkness, darkness, darkness
And I stopped dreaming now
I'm supposed to fill it up with something, something , something
In your eyes I see the eyes of somebody I knew before long long long ago
But I'm still trying to make my mind up
Am I free or am I tied up

I change shapes just to hide in this place but I'm still, I'm still an animal
Nobody knows it but me when I slip yeah I slip
I'm still an animal

There is a hole and I tried to fill up with money, money , money
But it gets bigger 'til your hopes is always
Running, running, running
In your eyes I see the eyes of somebody of who could be strong
Tell me if I'm wrong
And now I'm pulling your disguise up
Are you free or are you tied up

I change shapes just to hide in this place but I'm still I'm still an animal
Nobody knows it but me when I slip
I'm still an animal

I change shapes just to hide in this place
But I'm still, I'm still an animal
Nobody knows it but me when I slip, yeah I slip
I'm still an animal

I change shapes just to hide in this place
But I'm still, I'm still an animal
Nobody knows it but me when I slip, yeah I slip
I'm still an animal

I change shapes just to hide in this place
But I'm still, I'm still an animal
Nobody knows it but me when I slip, yeah I slip
I'm still an animal

My 9 year old son loves this song. He is on the autism spectrum and doesn’t like many songs. After listening to some of the lyrics, I wonder if he can relate in some ways. He doesn’t communicate that well (still verbal), so I can see how he may have felt this way in his life.

Benjamin Sheridan

That's wonderful that he can connect to it. I love this band! I couldn't figure out lyrics until I started taking poetry classes in high school. I still don't understand lyrics!

Chandler Patey

This is kinda unrelated, but please try to see if your son could be interested in psychology. Learning about brains has helped me immensely to overcome the downsides of autism and alexithymia. Especially now that your son is 12-13, i assume he's struggling to define his self-concept while coping with the growing realization he's not "normal". That sense of alienation can feel insurmountable.

Its a very simple 3 chord song. That could be why its also super catchy. When we like music its because we recognize the patterns and our brain releases dopamine ir whatevee when we recognize the patterns in songs.
Its why you can train yourself to like whatever song.

Mia Betteridge

I am on the autism spectrum too and I have adored this song since I was very young. I'm 17 now and it is still by far my favourite song and relates a lot to my life.

My boy has his selected tracks too. Tracks that I never focused on cuz of the music. He forces me to listen. Now I cant help but sing along with him when he is jamming along side me. 😊

IVE KNOWN THIS SONG FOR A WHILE AND I WAS EXPECTING AT LEAST 1M VIEWS

Jade Duh

YouTube forces one to re update own pages or they'll make them disappear due to no activity. Ide imagine there would be more than 1M views then...? 🤷🏻‍♂

It was posted back in the days when record companies posted on their own pages instead of the artists.
