JUNGLE BEAT

You know to be alone has a negative implication
Is it alone by choice or a fear of being shunned
Can a fear of being lonely really be a fear of failure
And can this fear become a fearful nature
These insecurities have got me walking on my knees
I know exactly what I please, but my mind is ill at ease
It’s not easy for me to lay my hopes and feelings down on the line
But the price of failure weighs heavy of my mind

I got that jungle beat and that’s what I need
When the outside world turns up the heat
When I’m feeling sad and I’m feeling mad
When the problems just seem to be outta hand
I get the music out and it’s swinging about
And the spirit turns within me and I wanna shout
I can’t be down or even wear a frown
‘Cause the music grabs a hold and picks me up from the ground

My problems may not leave me
But the beat has lifted me inside
My soul has begun to smile
Now I think I’ll be O.K. for a while

The microscope that we aim at ourselves
Is amazingly powerful in the depths that it delves
My new flaws in our self conception
Are seen as giant cracks by our inspection
Now these flaws they’re traits of every man and woman
They make us what we are, but they keep up from being open
Nobody wants to see those flaws exposed
But the fact of the matter is son that’s a door we can’t keep closed

I got that jungle beat and that’s what I need
When the outside world turns up the heat
When I’m feeling sad and I’m feeling mad
When the problems just seem to be outta hand
I get the music out and it’s swinging about
And the spirit turns within me and I wanna shout
I can’t be down or even wear a frown
‘Cause the music grabs a hold and picks me up from the ground

My problems may not leave me
But the beat has lifted me inside
My soul has begun to smile
Now I think I’ll be O.K. for a while

I got that jungle beat and that’s what I need
When the outside world turns up the heat
When I’m feeling sad and I’m feeling mad
When the problems just seem to be outta hand
I get the music out and it’s swinging about
And the spirit turns within me and I wanna shout
I can’t be down or even wear a frown
‘Cause the music grabs a hold and picks me up from the ground

My problems may not leave me
But the beat has lifted me inside
My soul has begun to smile
Now I think I’ll be O.K. for a while
(Repeat)
