lyrics

Survival Instincts

You were crawling
now you're clawing through
a frozen cloud between me and you
Take a breath and raise the mirror
on a coward's crime that can't define you
The Phoenix wings
its rainbow flames
the light that burns their eyes and forces them to see

[Chorus]
A cockroach survives apocalyptic dream
the most beautiful thing I think I have ever seen
You will survive
the days that try to scratch your name into the mud
in your own blood

You'll speak
and they'll grow weak
because you still breathe

You were crawling
now you’re clawing through
a frozen cloud between me and you
Take a breath and raise the mirror
on a coward’s crime that can't define you

[Chorus]

The coelacanth
the horseshoe crab
the tortoise, the sturgeon sing your name
You will survive
