SAVAGES

 

1st Verse:

 

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 be as bad as we can good...

 

Chorus:

 

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...

 

2nd Verse:

 

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'm 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 as bad as we can good...

 

Chorus:

 

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 and marriages,

Truth is in us all, cradle to the grave,

We're just animals still learning how to behave...

 

Bridge:

 

All the hate coming out from a generation,

Who got everything, and nothing guided by temptation,

We were born to abuse, shoot a gun and run,

Or has something deep inside of us come undone,

Is it a human trait, or is it learned behavior,

Are you killing for yourself, or killing for your savior...

 

Final-Chorus:

 

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...
