The Dangerous...

So precious - Keep it locked behind glass

No fingerprints - hermetically sealed

What’s the deal?

Do you find it’s empty in there?

 

It started with good intent - prevention of accidents

Now it’s cold in there under - lock and key

Encrypted from me

Tucked away

In the attic space...

 

All I need’s a sign

One look through the window

Maybe just the flash of a smile

...that you can give away

 

I know you’re breakable - prone to take falls

Whole afternoons - locked away

Day after day

With your Velcro shoes

And your army of one

With a safety net

Choosing silence for a gun

 

All I need’s an eye

One look through the window

Maybe just the flash of a smile

...that you can give away
