THE ENEMY AT CLOSE RANGE

THE ENEMY AT CLOSE RANGE.jpg

The enemy at close range
Loyalty sold for a piece of meat, a coin or a good dose of gossip

 

The enemy at close range
A friend with evil intentions
Searching for loopholes

 

The enemy at close range
Embraces you with a smile
Helps you clean your gun
But pulls the trigger when you turn your back

 

The enemy at close range
Disguised as a sheep but as sly as a fox
Laughs with you at your table
But as soon as it’s dusk
He runs into the shadows to break bread with your mockers

 

The enemy at close range
Knows your every move
Hears your every word
Spills all your secrets

 

The enemy at close range
Breaks your heart without a warning
And gives you quinine in place of honey

 

The enemy at close range
Is a friend with evil intentions

IN THE ZONE

IN THE ZONE.fw.png

 

I’ve heard all you’ve said…I’m touched

Your heart feels squashed

Don’t let your spirit be crushed

Just let the pain be washed

(Upset) Oh…I’m doing it again!

This disguise I must squash

 

They hurt you every time

You cry all the time

You weep on my shoulders e-v-e-r-y time

I cry with you sometimes

(Angry) I’m done!

This is a crime!

 

I’ve loved you for so long

You put me in a zone I don’t belong

My heart you’ve hung

(Teary-eyed) That’s just wrong!

I’m now your tag-along

But not for long

 

You call me friend

But my heart you apprehend

“A true friend to the end”

 (Scoffs) What a fool I’ve been!

I’ve been in this zone far too long…why…I really can’t comprehend

So all I’ve done is pretend

 

But today I draw the line

This zone I decline

I’m not your kin…stop piercing my heart like a porcupine

I’ve waited twelve years for you to be mine

I’m tired of being sidelined

(Walks away) I’m out!
