First single from the British IBM and their self-titled debut album, which is out at the end of July 2012.


I’ve got my head screwed on
But when I come undone
I don’t need anyone
Till the feeling’s gone
All I need, is a little piece of sanctuary
I need a little space and time
To be alone in my own mind
I’m Just an animal
I’m just a silhouette
Behind your talking head
I need to be alone
In my own sweet home
All I need, is a little bit of sympathy
A little place to call my own
Where I don’t have to hear you moan
All I know, is everything you’ve ever known
Though I could never tell you that
You know it’s just a simple fact
I’m just an animal
