Hopelessly passing your time in the grassland away;
Only dimly aware of a certain unease in the air.
You better watch out,
There may be dogs about

no such thing indeed!
No such thing as a bad Pink Floyd album

ledzep1i I agree! Animals rocks!
.Mutten anyone !!
May not be your favorite floyd album ... but it is mine god is this great!!
Sheeple if only they knew. How true this song rings today. Floyd was always thirty years ahead the curve.
I remember seeing the building on the cover when I was in England, had to take a picture.
Pink Floyd is the best

Pink shall inherit the earth
I love this song

Lyrics are so haunting!
Another cool feature - how Waters' voice cross-fades seamlessly into the synth
Animals... The album that made me fell in love with PF in the first place..
Just plain wicked. There is so much spite in this song it's ooozing out. F'kin brilliant Roger.
The octave bass run at the end is the soundtrack to the doom of man.
Album is f**king cool. "Animal farm" by George Orwell

i like how e-rock makes an appearance at the beginning of this song
Best album. Best song.
I'd be able to appreciate this song so much more if the sheep metaphor wasnt exhausted by idiots
Love this song, sheep watch out there may dogs about.
Into the house of rotating knives we follow the black sheep willingly toward the end our lives
Sheep eating shrooms..... . . . y i p p i e
Whoever wrote Features of this Track is an idiot. This song doesn't have most of that stuff in it. Their talking about another song. Otherwise good song but its kind of long.
Sheep! This one doesn't get enough play.
Looks like the songwriters credit is for the (completely different) song of the same name by The Housemartins . Tsk tsk.

Songwriters! ! ? ? Are you Kidding!!???

Animals is my favorite Floyd album.
Probably my favorite from 'Animals'.

Sheep is a brilliant song by PF both lyrically and musically with a deep message. Simple for some to get but beyond the reach of many!
Bravo PF. Genius!!
Listening to this album at a friends while smoking a bit a budz, when Dogs came on i fell out of my seat haha
They sound how dali looks

Only dimly aware of a certain unease in the air......
Dave would complain that he often felt like a sideman in later-day Floyd, but Comfortably Numb withstanding , some of his best guitar parts are in songs he didn't help write. It's like he had something to prove, and did so in spades.
love Richard Wrights electric piano opening - excellent tune.

Baaahhaahha
In my opinion Animals is where these great musicians coalesced into brilliance, much like Yes on Relayer and Led Zep on Presence yet oddly all are fairly obscure releases in relation to the rest of their respective portfolios. BTW - The song Sheep obviously exposes that they will rise up and destroy the dogs and subsequently inherit the earth. Short term - be a dog Long term - better a sheep
don't be sheep! we are the 99%!
I wrote my socialogical thesis on this song 30 years ago and aced it.
