Ape Heart

 
Ape heart beating in the genteel mind
Beating the bush for eyes so blind
Monkey grip gotta lotta soul
but civilized hands done lose their hold
round the neck of our fellow beast
it's a humble life, baby, that lives the least

it's a howling troupe that rules the trees
ape heart beating don't make for peace

You got heart, ape heart
you think walking on two legs makes you smart
You got heart, ape heart
you love 'em so much you're gonna tear 'em apart

40 floors up in the forest primordial
the fangs are bared but the talk is cordial
Boardroom boredom is an animal kingdom
It's a bottom line bumble, you know it stings 'em
concrete jungle, forest primevil
this here monkey sees some evil

it's a howling troupe that rules the trees
ape heart beating don't make for peace

You got heart, ape heart
you think walking on two legs makes you smart
You got heart, ape heart
you love 'em so much you're gonna tear 'em apart
