TOOTH AND CLAW

Tooth and claw meat red raw
Eat your fill and you still want more
Tooth and claw snarl and roar
Do what you will is the whole of your law

Tooth and claw you trade in gore
You follow no rules and you keep your own score
Tooth and claw never withdraw
You’re up for every battle getting off on every war

When you smell fear you’re on impulse drive
When you taste blood you’ve never felt more alive
So you stalk your pray leaving nothing to chance
As you move and groove to a deadly dance

Tooth and claw let me show you the door
Times up and you’re not welcome here anymore
Tooth and claw let me show you your cage
Times up for living in your primitive age

Old impulsions jingle and a jangle but
We’re no longer living in a jungle
Times have changed we have rearranged
We have cleared a path to the better angel of our nature

Tooth and claw ready to strike
Tearing up anyone you dislike
Tooth and claw might is right
It’s kill or be killed so you take the first bite
In your cruel world there’s no right nor wrong
Its how things are weak are food for the strong
It takes tooth and claw if you want to be a winner
And winners take all while losers make dinner

Tooth and claw let me show you the door
Times up and you’re not welcome here anymore
Tooth and claw let me show you your cage
Times up for living in your primitive age

Old impulsions jingle and a jangle but
We’re no longer living in a jungle
Times have changed we have rearranged
We have cleared a path to the better angel of our nature
The better angel of our nature

Old impulsions jingle and a jangle but
We’re no longer living in a jungle
Times have changed we have rearranged
We have cleared a path to the better angel of our nature
The better angel of our nature
