You’ve closed your heart and mind
To reason and the truth
You turn and walk away
Think this doesn’t affect you.

What a fool to listen to
The beliefs of liars and thieves
To think what you are told
Is all you really need.

Your judgement seems tainted
Your opinions not quite right
We differ in our outlook
All you want to do is fight.

He is a bully and a jester
He doesn’t really care
He’ll sell you down the river
Don’t oppose him, don’t you dare.

The lights are surely blinking
Don’t throw caution to the wind
Wake up and pay attention
Don’t get too close, you might fall in.
