Survival And Instincts


Survival and instincts...
Manifest on city streets.
Survival and instincts...
Embed in heads to never let go.
Survival and instincts...
Manifest on city streets.
Survival and instincts...
Embed in heads to never let go.

What is learned with lessons taught,
Embed in heads to never let go.
Common sense can not be bought,
When embedded in heads to never let go.

Survival and instincts...
Manifest on city streets.

Survival and instincts...
Manifest on city streets.
Survival and instincts...
Embed in heads to never let go.

Mistakes one make seldon repeat,
When embedded in heads to never let go.
And regretted mistakes are felt real deep,
When embedded in heads to never let go.

Wisdom comes from experience known,
To keep embedded in heads.
A knowledge obtained will be shown,
When embedded in heads.

Survival and instincts...
Are kept embedded in heads.
Survival and instincts...
Are seldom from school books read.
Survival and instincts...
Is often common sense fed.

Survival and instincts...
Manifest on city streets.
Survival and instincts...
Embed in heads to never let go.
Survival and instincts...
Manifest on city streets.
Survival and instincts...
Embed in heads to never let go.

What is learned with lessons taught,
Embed in heads to never let go.
Common sense can not be bought,
When embedded in heads to never let go.
Common sense can not be bought,
When embedded in heads to never let go.
Survival and instincts...
Embed in heads to never let go.
Survival and instincts...
Embed in heads to never let go.
