Hidden Instincts (Watchtower)

Maintaining a safe social order Is one of our system's greatest chores We're afraid to walk the streets alone at night Our society sleeps behind locked doors Lurking beneath the shadow's surface Hiding under exterior silence There exists in every individual The potential for criminal violence Crime after crime - conditioned criminality Timed after time - randomized brutality Reminds us we must live in fear As we are held prisoner by the fear of assault Our freedoms are compromised As we are held prisoner by the fear of attack Our freedoms are victimized A psychopathic killer A common teenage vandal Both victims of instincts They cannot handle A fearful population rests On the brink of insanity An unfortunate aspect of human nature Crime will exist as long as humanity Some find they must resort To predatory ways to survive Some find they must kill In order to stay alive
