In The Jungle

In the jungle I see all the pictures of me that were taken when I was a child  And over the hum of my hand on the drum is the beat of the church going wild • But I’ve never been to the jungle he said • Except in my head, except in my head • And over and under the song comes asunder and I’m going to wonder until I’m dead

In the jungle I run with the bear in the sun while my teeth tear a hole in the sky • And under the beat of the earth on my feet is the roar of the beast getting high • But I’ve never been to the jungle he said • Except in my head, except in my head • And over and under the world comes asunder and I’m going to wonder until I’m dead

CHORUS • Something about the animals dancing speaks of a natural disaster • Something about the animals dancing makes me want to be master • So re-address all the letters you send • ‘Cause here I am in the jungle, my friend • Here I am in the jungle, my friend • Here I am in the jungle

In the jungle I rise with the motes in my eyes when they seek out the faces of leaves • And under the noise of my lips on the boy’s is the din of a father who grieves • But I’ve never been to the jungle he said • Except in my head, except in my head • And over and under the girl comes asunder and I’m going to wonder until I’m dead

CHORUS

Lions, tigers, bears, oh my • Lions, tigers, bears, oh my, oh my

In the jungle I fall through the sound of it all as the trees rush to take what I bring • And over the drone of my heart all alone is nothing • But I’ll never live in the jungle he said • Get out of my head, it’s how I was bred • And over and under the man comes asunder and I’m going to wonder until I’m dead • And over and under the teething of thunder I’ll be here and wonder until I’m dead

CHORUS

Here I am in the jungle • Here I am in the jungle • Here I am in the jungle
