  • Filthy bum (twenty plus some) with an old platitude
    "Mending fences or mending souls"
    That was all you had to say
    But fate was fair my friend
    Now it's your turn to walk in my place

    Tell me how's the view from down there-
    come on don't you like it?
    Suddenly you are no one and you feel like a freak
    Down and out you just might find out who you
    really are
    Sorry I can't join you right now
    I'd love to stay but can't be late for my happy hour
    Now don't get caught up in your paranoia
    just accept that we both -
    lose if there's a confrontation
    Well I think we've got to find
    some good excuse with a prospect of detente

    But standing my ground
    I have drawn the line
    past which there can be no more compromise

    Somebody help me find a way out of it
    I'm quite sure there must be
    more than meets the eye
    A matter of what's inside
    Pretending my soul can hide from the outside
    When everyone can see we're hiding tragedy

    Social Marginal-
    Setting the stage for our power struggle
    Social Marginal-
    Engaging you in a test of wills
    Social Marginal-
    No diversions please
    It's time to wear your gameface
    It's time to wear it now.....just put it on.

    Now don't get caught up in your paranoia
    just accept that we both
    lose if there's a confrontation
    And it's all we've got to find
    a crucible can't we compromise?
    Now.

    Somebody help me find a way out of it
    I'm quite sure there must be
    more than meets the eye
    A matter of what's inside
    Pretending my soul can hide from the outside
    When everyone can see we're hiding tragedy
    Now.

    Social Marginal-
    setting the stage for our power struggle
    Social Marginal-
    Engaging you in a test of wills
    Social Marginal-
    No diversions please
    It's time to wear your gameface
    It's time to wear it now - right now.

    Mending fences, mending souls?
    Read between the lines and you'll know
    Now.
    Now it's your turn to accept me-
    Now.

    ....But caught up in your own self-righteousness
    All you can do is say - "you first".
