Glass Animals – Toes Lyrics

Put your hand down, boy
Welcome to my zoo
Put your hate inside
Might be black while white
I can still help you

See those snake bamboo
Funky shake ass move
Honey, can you spy
The divine ape’s wine
’cause he can’t see you

CHORUS:
I’m a man, i’m a twisted fool
My hands are twisted, too
Five fingers, two black wounds
I’m a man, don’t speak me a lie
Got toes and i can’t smile
I’m crooked but alright

And all i ever want
Is just a little love
I say it to the birds in the pond
And all i ever want
Is breaking me apart
I sink through the thing that i once was

CHORUS:
I’m a man, i’m a twisted fool
My hands are twisted, too
Five fingers, two black wounds
I’m a man, don’t speak me a lie
Got toes and i can’t smile
I’m crooked but alright

To the left now, boy
Underneath the moon
By the thick tanzan in the tall grass
One more thing for you

See the distant flume
In the snippy dunes
Makes my nerves cringe cold
And my bones go cold
When i see their rune

And all i ever want
Is just a little love
I say it to the birds in the pond
And all i ever want
Is breaking me apart

I’m a man, i’m a twisted fool
My hands are twisted, too
Five fingers, two black wounds
I’m a man, don’t speak me a lie
Got toes and i can’t smile
I’m crooked but alright

    A lot of wrong lyrics.
    According to the band it’s their musical interpretation of the H.G. Wells novel The Island of Doctor Moreau.

    Put your hand down, boy
    Welcome to my zoo
    Put your head inside
    My big black wild while
    I can still help you

    See the snake-baboon
    Funky, chic and smooth
    Honey can you spy
    The divine ape-swine
    ‘Cause he can see you

    I’m a man, I’m a twisted fool
    My hands are twisted, too
    Five fingers two black hooves
    I’m a man, don’t spin me a lie
    Got toes and I can smile
    I’m crooked but upright

    And all I ever want
    Is just a little love
    I said in purrs under the palms
    And all I ever want is breaking me apart
    I said to the thing that I once was

    I’m a man, I’m a twisted fool
    My hands are twisted too
    Five fingers two black hooves
    I’m a man, don’t spin me a lie
    Got toes and I can smile
    I’m crooked but upright

    To the left now, boy
    Underneath the moon
    By the thick tan sand
    And the tall thin grass
    One more thing for you

    See the distant flume
    In the sleepy dunes
    Makes my nerves clench close
    And my bones go cold
    When I see that room

    And all I ever want
    Is just a little love
    I set in birds into the pond
    And all I ever want
    Is breaking me apart

    I’m a man, I’m a twisted fool
    My hands are twisted too
    Five fingers, two black hooves
    I’m a man, don’t spin me a lie
    Got toes and I can smile
    I’m crooked but upright
