INSTINCTS Everybody has instincts Instincts are like our precincts We have a large dome around us Shouldn't have to deal with everybody's fuss We do what everyone else will do Or we do our own thing saying “screw you” We have our own lives to lead We have the power to plant our seeds Danger is different for everyone Danger carries the same name with a gun Danger is out their and so is the light Positivity is fair despite the dark side We all worry about things We all see how life swings Everyone is different with everything Our instincts say to move on happy Be positive and keep it coming at me What is danger is too strong to carry What worrying makes me want to worry What if I go nuts because I'm so lost What if I decide to be my own boss Good vs. Evil exist everywhere All in between though is all is fair It's unique how everyone perceives everyone Everyone could be different with so much fun What can I say and what can I do Just speak about our instincts to you We feel fear and it's fear that is different What is fear or is it significant or an indictment Fear and good are too separate things Found in everyone, which is a blessing We do what we can to stay on the right track Some people back fire That's how people get attacked.
