LYRICS

Mammalian Reflex

Copyright Theo Starr 2012

 

Verse 1

In the comfort

Of your zone

Saying prayers

Over the cosmic phone

You’re the only one

Who is left alone

It can make you feel

Make you feel so sad

Stop, Take a Breath

Stop, Catch a Breath

You’re Not Alone

Take a Good Look Around

 

Verse 2

Gray Skies

And Buckets Of Rain

You’re So Tired

And Feel The Pain

Your Lifes

Is so strained

It can make you feel

Make you feel so bad

Stop, Take a Breath

Stop, Catch a Breath

You’re Not Alone

Take a Good Look Around

 

Chorus

Dive In

Without Hesitation

Immerse Yourself

Release All The Tension

Dive In

Without Apprehension

You have the

Mammalian Reflex

 

Verse 3

Wasted Effort

Wasted Time

It Feels Like Swimming

Against The Tide

Its the flow

You need to ride

It’s only a waste

If you learn nothing at all

Stop, Take a Breath

Stop, Catch a Breath

You have Lessons

You have Lessons to Learn

 

Verse 4

When You Arrive

At the Wrong Place

And you’re there

At the Wrong Time

You Did Things

With Too Much Haste

You need to stop

You need to Slow Down

Stop, Take a Breath

Stop, Catch a Breath

You have Lessons

You have Lessons to Learn

 

Verse 5

When Things are perfect

You have lost the Game

Things are different

And not the same

You have lost

What was gained

You start to feel

Start to feel so scared

Stop, Take a Breath

Stop, Catch a Breath

Plan What to Do

And Do What you Planned

 

Verse 6

Don’t Ever Show

Satisfaction

Try to be pleased

With Your Actions

Keep Yourself Grounded

For Added Traction

Keep On Moving

Never Touch the Ground

Stop, Take a Breath

Stop, Catch a Breath

Plan What to Do

And Do What you Planned

 

 

 

The Mammalian Reflex can be found on the album Hello, to Wherever You are.

 

IThe Mammalian Reflex is also called the Diving Reflex, it is the sensation that a Human Mammal gets when diving underwater and feels like there is a loss of breath.

 

Some experts say it may be the evolutionary development of a more primitive response to hypoxia exhibited by fishes. The diving reflex is triggered specifically by chilling the face and breath-hold.

 

That analogy is used in this composition for life in general where there is hesitation to go into the unknown and do something that isn't a certainty.

 

 

Enjoy!!!
