"Animal" is a song originally by Miike Snow that Poppy covered during her "Moriah Poppy" era. It was uploaded to her SoundCloud on February 8th, 2012 and a day later to her YouTube channel on February 9th, 2012.

It was confirmed in an interview with Lemonade Magazine that it was also her first live performance ever, at Playlist Live 2012 with her friends HeyHiHello.[1]

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
There was a time when my world was filled with
Darkness, darkness, darkness
Then I stopped dreaming, now I'm supposed to fill it up
With something, something, something
In your eyes, I see the eyes of somebody I knew before
Long, long, long ago
But I'm still trying to make my mind up
Am I free or am I tied up?

[Chorus]
I change shapes just to hide in this place
But I'm still, I'm still an animal
Nobody knows it but me when I slip
Yeah, I slip, I'm still an animal

[Verse 2]
There is a hole and I tried to fill up with
Money, money, money
But it gets bigger 'til your hopes is always
Running, running, running
In your eyes, I see the eyes of somebody who could be strong
Tell me if I'm wrong
And now I'm pulling your disguise up
Are you free or are you tied up?

[Chorus]
I change shapes just to hide in this place
But I'm still, I'm still an animal
Nobody knows it but me when I slip
Yeah, I slip, I'm still an animal

I change shapes just to hide in this place
But I'm still, I'm still an animal
Nobody knows it but me when I slip
Yeah, I slip, I'm still an animal

I change shapes just to hide in this place
But I'm still, I'm still an animal
Nobody knows it but me when I slip
Yeah, I slip, I'm still an animal

I change shapes just to hide in this place
But I'm still, I'm still an animal
Nobody knows it but me when I slip
Yeah, I slip, I'm still an animal
