  • Beware, beware the serpents in the leaves
    And their deception
    An outstretched hands closed to a fist
    Becomes a weapon

    I see the damage they have done
    I see the battle's just begun
    I know the answer lies inside
    I feel it when I close my eyes

    Through disaster and decay
    Survive to fight another day
    There's no time for you to question
    Every single step you take
    Press on, and trust in your instincts

    Trust in your instincts

    Break down the barriers of fear
    And superstition
    Listen to your primal past and intuition

    You'll see the damage they have done
    You'll see the war is never won
    You'll know the answer lies inside
    You'll feel it when you close your eyes

    Through disaster and decay
    Survive to fight another day
    There's no time for you to question
    Every single step you take
    Press on, and trust in your instincts

    Kill or be killed (stand and fight)
    Sink or swim (run and hide)
    The answer lies within

    Through disaster and decay
    Survive to fight another day
    There's no time for you to question
    Every single step you take
    Press on, and trust in your instincts Writer/s: AARON PAULEY, ALAN ASHBY, PHIL MANANSALA, VALENTINO ARTEAGA
