Track Name: keep yourself safe
You don’t know a place 
’Til you get off the bus
Visitor maps 
Only tell you so much

Manage your risk  
Preparation is key
The right information 
Is your currency

*The colours are grey
In this complex place
There’s no right answer
For the choice you face
The lines are blurred 
In this hostile world
Try to keep yourself safe

We were marched out
Under a star-filled sky  
With just our grit scale score
To get us by

It’s a simulation 
It isn’t for real
Unlike the emotions 
We try not to feel

Keep your eyes sharp
Hold your radio near
Make your breathing square
Try to cover your fear

Sometimes all you can do
Is to just act aware
For the unexpected
Be fully prepared

As you face your fate
In the dark of a barn
Don’t forget we came here 
To help, not to harm
