my scared animals

Butterflies can taste pollen through their toes,
leaves them ready, for escape.
You needed him to go, he looked at you like that,
so he hits you hard, and you keep going back.
I once had a bird, tried to let him go,
but he did not fly away, how could I have known.
He has your little girl, your money and your heart
and all your friends are tired of trying

My scared animals, we bark and howl in tune
My scared animals, we hide and learn to fear
I said to go, we bark and howl in tune
My scared animals

You tell him he’s a waste, you cry before you’re done
He understands, you’re irrational.
A dog will piss and bite, and murder its own young,
When it looks like he might lose, all this territory won.
He screams that you can’t go, will kill you if you try,
but never tells his friends your trying

So I, try to fake a smile, but I want to bring you back, I want to bring you back
then you go and say it out loud, that you’ve be - come a coward
when I know you’re no such thing, ‘cause I believe that, he’s made you small,
what he just can’t see at all
