KEEP TREATING A MAN LIKE DIRT
AND HE WILL CRUMBLE TO DUST
KEEP QUESTIONING THE BOY
AND YOU’LL DILUTE AND CRUSH THE ANSWER.
LOOK AT HIM THE WRONG WAY
HE’LL TURN THE UGLINESS IN ON ITSELF
LOOK AT HIM AND SNEER
AND HE’LL CRUMBLE BEFORE YOUR VERY EYES.
IF HE FEELS LIKE NOTHING
WHY MAKE HIM NEGATIVE?
IF HE REACHES OUT FOR HELP
HE’S DROWNING NOT WAVING.
WHAT LITTLE LIGHT HE HAS IS SHADED
WHAT LITTLE HOPE HE HAD AS FADED
YOU SHRUG YOUR SHOULDERS CALL HIM JADED
WHY CANT THE BOY JUST CHEER UP?
DON’T BOTHER WITH THE FUNERAL
HYPOCRITICAL BOW OF THE HEAD
THE DIRT UNDER YOUR FINGERNAILS
WILL BE THE ASHES OF THE DEAD.
