Song#: 20

Album
Name of Song: Our urge for Pain and Sex?

Violence, you’ve seen it,
Violence that you feel,
Don’t tell me you haven’t felt
that urge in everyone.

Living in a body,
Fears it can be hurt,
Terror it can be overwhelmed,
So hard to stay inert.

Whether you decide to use it,
How much do you want to survive?
How far are you willing to be pushed?
Do you want to stay alive?

Chorus
Look at all the movies,
Look at TV shows,
They all resound some violence,
Or sex, that’s how it goes.

Violence, you’ve seen it,
Violence that you feel,
Don’t tell me you haven’t felt
that urge in everyone.

Living in a body,
Fears it can be hurt,
Terror it can be overwhelmed,
So hard to stay inert.

Whether you decide to use it,
How much do you want to survive?
How far are you willing to be pushed?
Do you want to stay alive?

Chorus
Look at all the movies,
Look at TV shows,
They all resound some violence,
Or sex, that’s how it goes.
______

Your mind is made of violence,
And luring waves of sex,
Your mind was programmed long ago
to lead you to the next.

We dial it down, our violence,
So it can’t affect my soul,
And the sex is oh so natural,
It’s part of life, we know.

Chorus
Look at all the movies,
Look at TV shows,
They all resound some violence,
Or sex, that’s how it goes.

Bridge
Because you feel the impulse,
Your pain and sex within,
Automatic urges reign
When you know you didn’t win.

Violence, you’ve seen it,
Violence that you feel,
Don’t tell me you haven’t felt
that urge in everyone.

Living in a body,
Fears it can be hurt,
Terror it can be overwhelmed,
So hard to stay inert.

Whether you decide to use it,
How much do you want to survive?
How far are you willing to be pushed?
Do you want to stay alive?

Chorus

They all resound some violence,
