Survival Lyrics

Sunshine is creepin' in
An' somewhere in a field, a life begins
An egg too proud to rape
The beginnin' of a shape of things to come
That starts the run, life has begun, fly fast the gun

The mother flew too late
An' life within the egg was left to fate
Not really knowin' how
The world outside would take it, when it came
And life?s the same, for things we aim, are we to blame?

Don?t doubt the fact there?s life within you
Yesterday?s endings will tomorrow life give you
All that dies, dies for a reason
To put its strength into the seasons

Survival, survival
They take away an' they give you life of their name
The living?s right to live, it?s all that we need to show
The living?s right to know

The egg breaks, all is out
The crawlin' bird begins to scream an' shout
Where is the parent bird
A loneliness arose an' heard its name ringing
For lives begin, survival win, survival sin

So soon the evening comes
An' with it runs the achin' fear of hate
Could someone still remain
Who thinks he still could gain by escapin' fate?
It?s much too late don?t underrate, appreciate

Don?t doubt the fact there?s life within you
Yesterday?s endings will tomorrow life give you
All that dies, dies for a reason
To put its strength into the seasons

Survival, survival
They take away an' they give you life of their name
The living?s right to live, it?s all that we need to give
The living?s right to know

Survival, survival
They take away and they give you life of their name
The living?s right to live, it?s all that we need to give
The living?s right to know, it?s all that we have to show

An' we?re all goin', an' we?re all goin'
An' we?re all goin', an' we?re all goin'
An' we?re all goin' somewhere
