Lyrics:

Why do all my friends now want to be your lovers?
Your family got bigger when they thought you were rich
And now like maniacs
They scratch your back
Even when it doesn’t itch I want to figure it all
I want to figure it all out
I want to save you from
Save you from all that’s vain
Save you, from the things that cause us pain ‘Cause it’s an animal city
It’s a cannibal world
So be obedient, don’t argue
Some are ready to bite you It’s an animal city
It’s a cannibal world
So be obedient, don’t argue
Some are ready to bite you, my love They believe you now have everything you wanted
And once you have become a star you’ve got no right to bitch
But someday when you fail
They’ll put you on sale
And buy you by the inch But you’re the real deal
And ‘real’ is your middle name
You know, sometimes I feel
Got to earn every breath we take, baby
Never mind the rules we break ‘Cause it’s an animal city
It’s a cannibal world
So be obedient, don’t argue
Some are ready to bite you It’s an animal city
It’s a cannibal world
So be obedient, don’t argue
Some are ready to rip you right off With you I feel safe
There’s nothing to fear from us
Away from the fangs, the fangs of the world
I maybe a coward, but you’re brave
And nothing seems so dangerous ‘Cause it’s an animal city
It’s a cannibal world
So be obedient, don’t argue
Some are ready to bite you It’s an animal city
It’s a cannibal world
So be obedient, don’t argue
Some are ready to rip you right off Cannibal world
Cannibal world
Cannibal world
Cannibal world
So be obedient, don’t argue
Some are ready to bite you, my love
