the rise of the animal lyrics – sammy hagar

i just came out from the room
i saw the rising of the moon
this ain’t no ordinary night
looked to my left, looked to my right

i felt a chill down to my bones
i must have dreamed this once before
glanced at the pictures on the wall
i saw my reflection in the gl*ss
and as i walked down the hall
i said to myself, “it’s got to be”

the rise of the animal, c’mon, get it up
the rise of the animal in the streets, uh-huh
the rise of the animal, it’s just got to be, uh-huh
the rise of the animal in me

i thought i heard the crowd scream
as i recalled a childhood dream
i saw myself as i stand
caught with the axe in my hand

then i was pushed out on the stage
and the crowd became a state of rage
i tripped, i fell down to one knee
said to myself, “it’s got to be”

the rise of the animal, c’mon, get it up
the rise of the animal in the streets, uh
the rise of the animal, it’s got to be, uh-huh
the rise of the animal in me

the rise of the animal
the rise of the animal
the rise of the animal
the rise of the animal

it’s got to be, uh-huh
the rise of the animal in me
the rise of the animal
the rise of the animal
