Default The Way To Survive


The deeper you go
The more you see die
The dead bury the dead
You learn not to cry
You learn not to love
You learn not to care
Outlive your friends
Outlive your fears

The Way To Survive
Is to be like Spock
Devoid of all feeling
Cold as a rock
The Way To Survive
Is to shun all emotion
Become a great white
A shark in this ocean

The sooner you see
That nothing is real
The quicker you'll move
In for the kill
Develop a taste
For blood in the water
Blood on the tracks
Hey! Mr. Dylan!

Second to second
Minute to minute
Even survival
Has its limits

The Way To Survive
Is to be like Spock
Devoid of all feeling
Cold as a rock
The Way To Survive
Is to shun all emotion
Become a great white
A shark in this ocean
