Dangerous Animals Lyrics

by Arctic Monkeys

Pinned down by the dark

Been fighting with my sheets
Nearly crying in my sleep
Yes, I'm battling that well taught gripe
The most frustrating type
You should have racing stripes

The way you keep me in pursuit
Sharpen the heel of your boot
And you press it to my chest
And you make me wheeze
Then to my knees you do promote me

I'm pinned down by the dark
A N I M A L
Makes my head pirouette
More than I would be willing to confess
D A N G E R O U S

The light it fidgets through
The thoughts will soon revert to you
I'm 'bout as bashful as a tribal dance
The first and final chance
And course the audience

Are frighteners and thieves
Divided up into two teams?
When the acrobat fell off the beam
She broke everyone's heart

I'm pinned down by the dark
A N I M A L
Makes my head pirouette
More than I would be willing to confess
D A N G E R O U S

D A N G E R O U S
The most unsuitable pet
It's been long enough now
So let's make a mess, lioness

I'm pinned down by the dark
I'm pinned down by the dark

D A N G E R O U S
A N I M A L
D A N G E R O U S
A N I M A L
