Joshua (J.Smo) Smotherman Powerful visuals, rich sonic textures and an experimental nature that holds no bars when it comes to genre-blending, Animals is a stunningly cinematic work of art…way beyond just a simple song. The video adds even more potency to an already powerful melding of layered symbolic meanings.

I'm close - you're near
Like toes in a shoe.
But I'm there - you're here
Tell me it is up to who?

You look at me
I look at you
I'd take you home but there's the world
Waiting for you…

One, two, three, four, five
We are both alive
See what you're up to: Live or live up to
Goin' up to nine
The game's gonna end at ten.
You live or you pretend?
I'm already bored with this checkboard
Gonna take ya home!

You raise a wall
You climb and fall
I say there is a shorter way
Just the one to go...

I look at you -
you don't look back
'Cause you see nothing but yourself
So aren't I what you lack?
