Animal Song Lyrics

When superstars and cannonballs are running through your head
And television freak show cops and robbers everywhere
Subway makes me nervous, people pushing me too far
I've got to break away
So take my hand now
Cause i want to live like...

    the song is about personal freedom;freedom from rules,bindings,regulations and responsibilities which may differ from person to person.The line "sometimes this life can get you down,its so confusing so many rules to follow" prove the point.

    He has compared human life with animal life to bring out the theme of freedom. like he says "i want to run through the jungle the wind in my hand & the sand at my feet"

    The writer is tired of having too many responsibilities to shoulder & now wants to get rid of them and live a 'careless' life. The line "i want to live like animals careless and free" clearly state this feeling.

    Ok now before i end up in interpreting each & every line (:P) i would conclude it this way.. each and every one of us gets older day by day & with it our powers and unfortunately our responsibilities also increase. its just saying "i want to get rid of them all & live a tension free life where i can do whatever i want!"
