Avoiding Split Decisions



Listen to me now

Attend to the words I say

Echoes may be false

 

Sure, follow your dreams

But life is a spider’s web

You are but a fly

 

Shuttle to and fro

Pulverize your enemy

Somehow stay intact

 

Clear every hurdle

There’s no level playing field

Use any means you can

    I like the imagery of life as a spider's web, you are but a fly.
