    "Stampede" was originally inspired by the increasing "road rage" here in Los Angeles, coupled with actual gunfire from cars, plus all the gang activity. We are seeing more and more, the results of having our society giving into the amoral "survival of the fittest" tautology we all have been forced fed in school. The roots of this so-called "scientific" view go back thousands of years before Darwin, and has been "sugar coated" and incorporated into almost all theories and beliefs today. How much worse will the stampede get? MUCH WORSE, it seems, before it gets better, at least as long as we believe we are just the product of highly evolved animals.

    Lyrics: So many angry eyes
    makes breathing room seem scarce
    Ghosts of old
    have traded robes for business suits
    It's nothing new, just labels change
    "Mind over matter" becomes "mind over mind"
    and "blessed are the fittest,
    for they shall survive"

    I'm talkin' me and you
    The common crew
    who should know the difference between
    North, South, Right and Wrong
    The poison still remains

    We're in the middle of a stampede
    the wild west is back
    We scream and scheme
    run over other's dreams
    "Me, Myself and I"
    we wear it like a silk tie
    There's a better way to go
    than this ego strife

    The cost of being "in"
    can make you down and out
    The plot turns into product:
    loaded guns and loaded minds
    Some wise guys of the East teach:
    "two wrongs do make a right
    so sit back, and transcend
    make bloodshed 'til the end"
