Look into my eyes and tell me what you see,
is it man or animal or something in between?
Iím barely educated with a primal kind of mind,
and if I didnít kill it, then it never was alive.
(Chorus) Iím animal, animal, Iím prime evil, a manimal.
If you try and cage me for the profit of display,
I will turn and slaughter you and simply walk away,
for I am just an animal too wild and free, to be
locked up inside for the whole damn world to see.
I am just the savage beast that lives within your soul,
and I can be released from the anger that you hold.
Never close your eyes when you know that I am near,
for I will fill your heart with the agony of fear.
