Animals
Kawala Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Call me in the early morn
When the curtains are drawn
And the lights are all off

All we need is hard to say
Since we've lost our way
To the broken stone
Running away, all my fears rose in the rough
Running away when enough is enough
Running away, I heard my calling
Running away from the worst of it all

'Cause he's a dog at the door
Don't need him anymore
And animal, animal
It's just a metaphor
Oh, he's a dog at the door
Don't need him anymore
And animal, animal
It's just a metaphor

Oh, he's a dog at the door
Don't need him anymore
And animal, animal
It's just a metaphor
Oh, he's a dog at the door
Don't need him anymore
And animal, animal

Call me when you're all alone
Oh, and your heart and soul
Yeah, you'll feel it all

And all we need is hard to say
Since we've lost our way
To the broken stone

Running away, all my fears rose in the rough
Running away when enough is enough
Running away, I heard my calling
Running away from the worst of it all

'Cause he's a dog at the door
Don't need him anymore
And animal, animal
It's just a metaphor
Oh, he's a dog at the door
Don't need him anymore
And animal, animal
It's just a metaphor

Oh, he's a dog at the door
Don't need him anymore
And animal, animal
It's just a metaphor
Oh, he's a dog at the door
Don't need him anymore
And animal, animal

Hold on to your worth or you'll be broken
Hold on to your worth or you'll be broken

'Cause he's a dog at the door
Don't need him anymore
And animal, animal
It's just a metaphor
Oh, he's a dog at the door
Don't need him anymore
And animal, animal

Oh, he's a dog at the door
Don't need him anymore
And animal, animal
It's just a metaphor
Oh, he's a dog at the door
Don't need him anymore
And animal, animal





Hold on to your worth or you'll be broken

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Kawala's song "Animals" express the desire to escape from a relationship or situation that is no longer fulfilling. The song starts with the invitation to be called in the early morning, when everything is quiet and there are no distractions. This is a metaphor for a moment of clarity and introspection. The chorus repeats the line "He's a dog at the door, don't need him anymore," which represents the realization that the person or situation (the dog) is no longer needed and it's time to move on. In this context, "animal" is used as a metaphor for something destructive or negative.


The verses describe the process of “running away” from this toxic situation, overcoming fears, and finding one's calling. The reference to the “broken stone” represents a fragmented road or path, hinting at how easy it is to lose one’s way. These lyrics suggest that it's difficult to know what we need or want when we are lost and confused, but we have to persevere and trust ourselves. The bridge urges us to hold on to our worth or we will be broken, suggesting that we need to learn to value and trust ourselves before we can break free.
