Cowering like settlers on someone else's land
Mistaking advances of the natives who have come to lend a hand

It's a sad and pathetic badge of shame, my friends
Terror always seems to win
In the drama of human motivation,
Where is restraint and reason?

Threat is urgent, existential
With patience wearing thin
But the danger's elemental
It's chaos from within

The fox-stained leaves of civilization depict a stark repeat
There's always a flaw in the reasoning that fates the citizenry

When the ancestor fell from the arbor,
The march of fear began
But the predator wallowed in failure
In the face of consciousness

Threat is urgent, existential
Time to scan the horizon
But the danger's elemental
It's chaos from within

Threat is urgent, existential
Omnipresent, like a skin
But the danger's purely mental
It's chaos from within

Chaos from within
