You should see how ignorant you are being.
You wouldn't know the first thing about me.

Right on command,
Sound of fire...

You assume I'm stupid,
And I've wandered off alone.
I'm no threat to myself,
Or you in your wheel chair.

Right on command,
Sound of fire...

For every inch,
There's a mile.
Limits and lines
Are a matter of pride.
"Where we are now",
"Where we want to be",
The difference is unsettling.

Going on the instincts,
Going on the instincts,
The instincts.

    General Commenti think that this song is about someone who thinks they know more than they really do. they go around talking, always saying stuff that they think is right, but they really have no idea. it also says how people get too caught up in small things like friends talking. people should worry about the bigger things in life down the road, and trust themselves to make the right decision.

    General CommentThis song has the most hidden meaning of any Osker. "Going On The Instincts" alone shows that it refers to the animal kingdom by using the word instinct. When he says "Sound of fire" he's talking about forest fires and the sound of a firing gun when the animals are hunted. And when he talks about "limits and lines" and the "difference is unsettling" he talks about fences that are put up to hold keep the animals in and stop from spreading of roads, parking lots, and those nasty pastel colored houses.
