LYRIC

Murder lives forever

And so does war

It’s survival of the fittest

Rich against the poor

At the end of the day

It’s a human trait

Sewn deep down inside of our DNA

One man can build a bomb

Another run a race

To save somebody’s life and have it blow up in his face

I’m not the only one who finds it hard to understand

I’m not afraid of God

I am afraid of man

Is it running in our blood

Is it running in our veins

Is it running in our genes

Is it in our DNA

Humans aren’t gonna behave as we think we always should

Yeah, we can bad as we can be good

Underneath it all we’re just savages

Hidden behind shirts, ties and marriages

How could we expect anything at all?

We’re just animals still learning how to crawl

We live, we die

We steal, we kill, we lie

Just like animals

But with far less grace

We laugh, we cry

Like babies in the night

Forever running wild

In the human race

Another day, another tale of rape

Another ticking bomb to bury deep and detonate

I’m not the only one who finds it hard to understand

I’m not afraid of God

I am afraid of man

You can see it on the news

You can watch it on TV

You can read it on your phone

You can say it’s troubling

Humans aren’t gonna behave as we think we always should

Yeah, we can be bad as we can good

Underneath it all we’re just savages

Hidden behind shirts, ties and marriages

How could we expect anything at all?

We’re just animals still learning how to crawl

Underneath it all we’re just savages

Hidden behind shirts, ties & marriages

Truth is in us all, cradle to the grave

We’re just animals still learning to behave

All the hate coming out from a generation

Who got everything + nothing guided by temptation

Were we born to abuse, shoot a gun + run

Or has something deep inside of us come undone?

Is it a human trait or is it learned behaviour

Are you killing for yourself or killing for your saviour?

Underneath it all, we’re just savages

Hidden behind shirts, ties and marriages

How could we expect anything at all?

We’re just animals still learning how to crawl

Underneath it all we’re just savages

Hidden behind shirts, ties & marriages

Truth is in us all, cradle to the grave

We’re just animals still learning to behave
