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




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
