Animal Liberation

Animal Liberation Orchestra

The animal crouched in the corner
Teeth clenched, ready to kill
The child maintained his ground by the bed
Challenging the creature's will
Suddenly they stopped
In a fog of blood and tears
Upon the revelation
That the one they fought was a mirror

Then the child got up
And the animal knew the time had come
For what was separated long ago
Must now be made into one
The image that binds us
Is a creation of our mind
Let is go and the rest will flow in time

And I knew you were hurt
Playin' it off like you were tough
Cause I saw your spirit shrivel
When suddenly you thought
You weren't good enough
And I think it's sad, so sad
I think it's bad for our health
To let hurtful words and thorny spurs keep us
From being ourselves
So at the end of the song
The message that comes through
Is you gotta be true to what grows on you
People gonna judge
People gonna always suck you in
Just remember what works for you
May not work for them

Everybody in the workd today
Has an animal they need to liberate
Everybody, everyone
