Artist/Band: Adrian Belew
Lyrics for Song: Survival In The Wild
Lyrics for Album: Here [1994]



Underneath a burning sky

The tenants of the fire

Sit in silence as they ponder

Survival in the wild



With our love to keep us up

There is nothing in the world

That can knock us down

We can take whatever comes

If we face it hand in hand

We can stand our ground



Just a couple of kids with clouds in our heads

Trying to swim upstream; trying to make it good

But it happened so fast; when disaster came

That a river of teardrops couldn't wash it away



How do we now view ourselves,



Sitting victims in a shelter needing help?

How do we now regain control

Over the remnants of our life without a home?



If a bomb had hit us, nothing less would remain

Not a wall to lean on; not a fork or a plate

But at least we made it out and we're still alive

And we're starting over now in the middle of the night



It's a matter of time; a struggle to survive

But it doesn't need to be a lonely fight

If we stand by each other

We'll be sure of our survival in the wild



Underneath a burning sky

The tenants of the fire

Sit in silence as they ponder

Survival in the wild
