What might change if it came to it
That each with a voice could not betray it
What could change should we expose
The last of the emperor’s new clothes

I don’t want you to ask me for the truth
There’s more than meets the eye running through
There’s no black and white, and too much here to lose
So don’t speak for me I may not follow you

You measure the sugar to your own taste
Never contemplate each cup is just a waste
You try to control every shiver
Yet my thoughts are not yours to deliver


Duty bound, not empathy,
No common ground, not here for me
