August Burns Red – Animals lyrics

How must you feel up there
So exalted, with such a haughty attitude.
No one's inferior
To your wise words, my dearest friend.

Acting if so you have a footing
To judge, you do not have permission. (Do not have permission)
Who gave you license, to pour hate down throats?
Bringing them all shameful disposition.

No one likes a discouraging word
slurring out of a drunkards mouth
Intoxicated on his own pride
Intoxicated on his own pride

How do you feel safe and secure?
You are wrong
You base the faith, lies, and actions
based on your insecurities

Words cut like blades to the skin
Making people numb to the feeling
Words cut like blades to the skin
Why can't you realize what you are doing?

Where is your self worth now?

Running miles far away
Based on your invitation
Heed your mouth
And listen to your heart
We are not animals
Nor are you to be warned
We are who we are
From beginning to end

Don't judge the loved,
Stop hating the hurt,
Quit living for selfish demands
If you don't stop while you're ahead
Pride will lead you to self destruct

Kingdom come no one is done
All have been forgiven
We are who we are
From beginning to end
