Everybody looks so ill at ease

So distrustful so displeased

 

Running down the table

 

I see a borderline

 

Like a barbed wire fence

 

Strung tight, strung tense

 

Prickling with pretense

 

A borderline

 

Why are you smirking at your friend

 

Is this to be the night when

All well-wishing ends

 

All credibility revoked

 

Thin skin, thick jokes

 

Can we blame it the on smoke

 

This borderline

 

Every bristling shaft of pride

 

Church nationor

Team or tribe

 

Every notion we subscribe to

Is just a borderline

 

Good or bad, we think we know

 

As if thinking makes things so

 

All convictions grow along a borderline

 

Smug in your jaded expertise

 

You scathe the wonder world

 

you And praise barbarity

 

In this illusionary place

 

This scared hard-edged rat race

 

All liberty is laced with

 

Borderlines

 

Every income, every age

 

Every fashion-plated rage

 

Every measure, every gauge

 

Creates a borderline

 

Every stone thrown through glass

Every mean-streets-kick ass

 

Every swan caught on the grass

Will draw a borderline

 

You snipe so steady

You snub so snide

 

So ripe and ready

 

To diminish and deride

 

Youre so quick to condescend

 

My opinionated friend

All you deface, all you defend

 

Is just a borderline

 

Just a borderline

 

Another borderline

 

Just a borderline
