Lyrics

Science, muck and algebra
The shadows on the wall
Glasses shatter
Ornaments onto the ground they fall
Her hair are like anemones
That wave beneath the seas
Her fingers are the fingers of
Baboons up in the trees

And the shapes between us turn into animals
The shapes between us

The lion is your anger
As it smashes up the chairs
The zebra is my answer
As you're pounding up the stairs
It's black and white and yes and no
And can't make up its mind
When you gonna see that love
Is dumb as well as blind

Oh, the shapes between us turn into animals
Yeah, the shapes between us

When the night is over and
The dawn comes shining through
Everything is smashed to bits
Including me and you
The animals are snoring open-
Mouthed inside the cage
Waiting for the wine to turn
An ache into a rage

'Cause the shapes between us turn into animals
The shapes between us
