Songfacts®:

  • Much of the A Different Kind of Human record is devoted to environmental concerns. Here, Aurora talks about how man's desire to kill animals comes from his innate desire to conquer.

    You're hunting for love
    Killing for pleasure
    Lost in a concrete jungle
    If I am alone
    Make me a stranger


    Aurora said: "I spend a lot of time thinking about humans. And I wanted to make a song wrapped in a blanket of obliviousness whilst speaking the wonderful and horrible truth that I see in us. We are always striving for something. If it's love, money, sex, success, power or just a bigger piece of a delicious chocolate cake. It's very interesting. Its grotesque. It's beautiful.

    We are always hunting for something. We are animals hunting for animals."
