We Are All Animals

Album: Capture/Release (2005)
  • Frontman Alan Donohoe told the Independent newspaper May 9, 2008 about this song: "'We Are All Animals' is about the scientific reduction of human soul into DNA. I studied biology. I think we gave the demo to our manager and asked him if he understood. I was pleased when he said no - it's quite good to have some ambiguity in lyrics. What it actually means is the scientific reduction to genetics with the lyrics: the 'four letters' are the four bases in DNA - A, G, T and C. I did get something out of three years' studying biology - a song."
