INSTINCTS

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.
