The Zoo Lyrics

The job is done and I go out
Another boring day
I leave it all behind me now
So many worlds away

I meet my girl, she's dressed to kill
And all we gonna do
Is walk around to catch the thrill
On streets we call the zoo

We eat the night,...

    When I first heard this song it made me wonder if it was related to the movie Christiane F & heroin use/street life that was associated with Bahnof Zoo Station in Germany in the late 70s

    I felt sex
    I hear the thrill of the hunt
    I feel the kill
    I Enjoyed the Meal

    Almost a prefect vampire song would work well in a stalking sound track

    Sounds like he's talking about living in skid row in the slums of some town.

    Its about life in the world. He gets off work, goes out with his girl and sees society as animals. Thus he is living his life in a zoo.
