Play a Role – Written June 2011 (Aged 36)

Play a Role

yes –
i play the role
hey,
you know it is easier
that is right
just be what they want
it is easier than putting up a fight
why be different –
to what they expect
different font
but same text
different wants
sadly not blessed
i just agree with you
hey,
you know it is easier
that is true
just balance that ball
it is the easiest thing to do
let them hang you
or pull that rope through
there is a mess in the hall
there is a mess in the loft
let me be what you expect
i could be lost
but do you earn my respect?
