Observe, decide, adhere

from by inside the whale



There is a wolf amongst the flock tonight
So let us stay in watch.
There is a thief on the loose
We must assure that what have is not lost.

Watch for their eyes.
Don’t fall prey to their disguise.

I saw the warning signs
But responsibility is not all mine
Sometimes we’re too slow to judge
And open our hearts.

Just because the smile shines
Or the handshake’s firm and kind
Does not ensure that we’re secure
For all time.

Now that the fresh wounds sting
And our mouthes no longer sing
The ringing in our ears
Is the only song we bring.

Watch for their eyes.
Don’t fall prey to the disguise.

The utopia’s not here
Don’t be afraid to fear
Not impulse but instinct
And all you can do is think
Observe, decide, adhere.
