She walks like a leopard
Her feet padding down down down
With spots on her shadow
That sway as the sun goes 'round

He lies in the orchard
And gazes into the sun
His body is burning
But not for just anyone

One more animal
One more fox will slip away
You're an animal
Like your father in his day

I watch through the winter
I watch and I go insane
I see the formations
But don't make me look again

One more animal
No one thought would get away
Hear the orchestra
Of the leopard and her prey

That sway as the sun goes down      4a

His past is a present               7a
His present is just begun           8a

Like your father in a way          12a

She moves into orbit               13a
And half of her face is nice       14a
To you in your hovel               15a
Alone as a sacrifice               16a

One more animal                  16.1a
Bites into the soft, white dove  16.2a
One more animal                  16.3a
Breaking out in colored love     16.4a

She crouches, a leopard          16.5a
Right opposite on the drain      16.6a
You open a window                16.7a
And then you are on a train      16.8a

Hear the crunching sound           19a
