Testo Lock And Key – Rush

By |

Testo della canzone Lock And Key dei Rush
Album: Hold Your Fire
I don’t want to face the killer instinct —
Face it in your or me

We carry a sensitive cargo
Below the waterline —
Ticking like a time bomb
With a primitive design

Behind the finer feelings —
This civilized veneer —
The heart of a lonely hunter
Guards a dangerous frontier

The balance can sometimes fail —
Strong emotions can tip the scale —

Don’t want to silence a desperate voice
For the sake of security
No one wants to make a terrible choice
On the price of being free
I don’t want to face the killer instinct — face it in you or me
So we keep it under lock and key…

It’s not a matter of mercy
It’s not a matter of laws
Plenty of people will kill you for some fanatical cause

It’s not a matter of conscience —
A search for probable cause
It’s just a matter of instinct — a matter of fatal flaws

No reward for resistance
No assistance — no applause…

we don’t want to be victims
on that we all agree, so we lock up the killer instinct —
and throw away the key
