Impulse Rules You

Far from the path
Impulse
Impulse
Impulse rules you

In the moment
Married man
Drunk too much
He can barely stand

In the moment
Married man
Met a girl
For a one night stand

In the moment
Married man
Breaks two hearts
She won’t understand

In the moment
Married man
Broken marriage
Impulse too strong to refuse

Far from the path
Impulse
Impulse
Impulse rules you

In the moment
Pretty girl
Tries something new
Rocks her world

In the moment
Pretty girl
Out of control
Round and round she whirls

In the moment
Pretty girl
Sells her stuff
What’s left to her world?

In the moment
Pretty girl
Sells her charms
Feeds the habit she can’t refuse

In the moment
Angry guy
Finds his girl in bed
With another boy

In the moment
Angry guy
Loses control
Didn’t want them to die

In the moment
Angry guy
Blood on his hand
Sentenced to life

In the moment
Angry guy
Has to live with
The violence he cannot refuse

Some people say
Grab life by the balls
Some people say
Live in the moment
Live for each moment
Live day by day

What those people say
Is not always right
They often forget
Decisions made in the moment
May seem right for the moment
But often lead you to stray

Far from the path
Impulse
Impulse
Impulse rules you

In the moment
Driver drunk
Hit’s a cyclist
With his pickup truck

In the moment
Driver drunk
Flees the scene
Stealing cyclist from friends and family

In the moment
Husband bad
Rage takes hold
Beats wife, he is mad

In the moment
Husband bad
Wife’s life in his hand
It’s extreme domestic abuse

Far from the path
Impulse
Impulse
Impulse rules you

Far from the path
Impulse
Impulse
Impulse rules you

Impulse Rules You
