Fight, Flight, Freeze, Appease

Lyrics

Walking through the darkness and it’s half past midnight
Movement in the shadows away from the street light
Keys between your fingers and adrenaline’s pumping
Walk a little faster and your heart is thumping

Thinking / FIGHT FLIGHT FREEZE
I don’t want to be here
Thinking / FIGHT FLIGHT FREEZE
Better make a choice now

Sun on the horizon and it’s half past six now
Waiting for the moment but your mind’s putting tricks out
Movement in the shadows and adrenaline’s pumping
Finger’s on the trigger and your heart is thumping

It’s thinking / FIGHT FLIGHT FREEZE
It doesn’t want to be here
It’s thinking / FIGHT FLIGHT FREEZE
Better make a choice now

In a situation
Pupil dilation
Time to ask a question
Are you predator or prey?
In an altercation
Fearing escalation
Fight to survive,
Or try to run away?

Spring to life away from stone

Pacing in my bony cage, defensively driving
Skillfully maneuvering in armored hiding
Brakes and gas together, engine’s whining
Stuck in survival mode and insides dying

Thinking / FIGHT FLIGHT FREEZE
I don’t want to be here
Thinking / FIGHT FLIGHT FREEZE
Better make a choice now

FIGHT, OR FLIGHT, FREEZE, APPEASE?
