Song Lyrics

So, I'm sitting here listening to Humanity by Scorpions. It's a great song by the way. And decided to finally look up their lyrics. Now, I've been listening to this song for a few weeks and I think I know what he's saying most of the time. He does after all speak fairly clearly.

However, there is one section to this song that seems quite odd to me. And *as far as what I hear* it goes as follows:

It's over. What? To your insanity
You sold your soul to feed your manatee
Your fantasies and lies

Now, here is this great song. And in the middle, he throws in a line about selling his sole to feed a "manatee". Why? Does he actually have a pet manatee? Or is he just some bizarre musician that is obsessed with these odd mammals. Well, after looking at the lyrics today. I realize I'm a *bit* off on the lyrics. Here's the real line.

It's au revoir to your insanity
You sold your soul to feed your vanity
Your fantasies and lies

Sooo... Uh... This makes a bit more sense, but now after singing about the Scorpions manatee for so long, I feel like the poor guy is getting left out. So you know what. The manatee will remain in my version. Screw vanity. I'll feed my manatee!
