Well, you got a big-jib crane waiting to pick you up.
Mmmm, you see those snakes that crawl, they're just dying to trip you up.
Live out in sad shacks at the back of town.
Hold your breath while we do you down

'Cause we're all kinds of animals coming here:
Occasional demons too.
We're all kinds of animals coming here:
Occasional demons too.

Well, you got a nice apartment here with appliances and CD.
We're gonna leave your stereo, but we'll have your soul for tea.
I'm not speaking of material things.
Gonna chew you up, gonna suck you in,

'Cause we're all kinds of animals coming here:
Occasional demons too.
We're all kinds of animals coming here:
Occasional demons too.

Smokestacks, belching black, we're the have-nots in your shade.
How about a slice of life, how about some human trade?
Eat at the best table in town.
No headwaiter going to turn us down,

'Cause we're all kinds of animals coming here:
Occasional demons too.
All kinds of animals coming here:
Occasional demons too,

Occasional demons too.
We're all kinds of animals coming here:
Occasional demons too,
Occasional demons too.
