Stampede by SKySWiM published on 2010/02/13 00:23:59 +0000 "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"
