Keep clear
Head games
Snakes with ladders to climb
I know they’re circling
And it’s just a matter of time

Shots fired
Out swinging
Catch up what’s on TV
Watch your mouth
You can’t be too careful it seems

Stay down
Play dead
and don’t make a sound
I hear violins
Screaming from under the ground

Maybe we could just turn the dial
Maybe we are all in denial

I’m fading
Waiting for you to take the bait

How do I put this
All into words
It goes without saying
This is all for the birds

Fly off
The handle
I’m a fly on the wall
And I will dismantle and stop this from hurting us all
