Survival Lyrics

("Ah, ah ah ah", repeated)
Race
Life's a race
That I'm gonna win
Yes I'm gonna win
And I'll light the fuse
And I'll never lose
And I choose to survive
("Told you, so I", repeated)
Whatever it takes
You won't pull ahead
I'll keep up the pace
And I'll reveal my strength
To the whole human race
Yes, I am prepared
("You were warned and didn't listen", repeated)
To stay alive
I won't forgive
Vengeance is mine
And I won't give in
Because I choose to thrive
Yes, I'm gonna win
Race
("Told you, so I", repeat)
It's a race
That I'm gonna win
Yes I'm gonna win
And I'll light the fuse
And I'll never lose
And I choose to survive
("You were warned and didn't listen", repeated)
Whatever it takes
You won't pull ahead
I'll keep up the pace
And I'll reveal my strength
To the whole human race
Yes, I'm gonna win
("Fight, fight, fight, fight, win, win, win, win")
Yes, I'm gonna win

Survival is the fifth track on The 2nd Law. Muse released it as the lead single from the album on June 27th, 2012.

It was announced thereafter as the official song for the London 2012 Olympic Games.

The song itself is much influenced by Queen, and features a tie for Matt's highest recorded vocals, along with Showbiz and Micro Cuts.
