I was dreaming of your love
I was lost in your arms embrace
Our bodies collide together
Whoa, this ultimate betrayal

The heart will not resign
What could be said, what could be done?
I hold out hope
For your reciprocation

Like an animal
These thoughts have gone beyond my control
For pleasure
Maybe just amusement

This overwhelming urge
Towards you I feign disinterest
While I covet the attention
While I crave your affection

Ravenous with lust
Jackal in heat, spit dripping
This mechanical impulse
Knows not loyalty or mercy

Like an animal
These thoughts have gone beyond my control
For pleasure
Maybe just amusement

Like an animal
These thoughts have gone beyond my control
For pleasure
Maybe just amusement
