Smoke

Gonna drill down to it
see what we can unpack
then we’ll figure out
what we need to walk back
if you have your mask on
better hold it tight
wouldn’t want to lose it
if someone turns on the light
When the most trusted are untrustworthy
when the most believed are liars
it’s hard to get excited
when they say the house is on fire
until you smell the smoke
and feel the heat of the flames
if you make it out alive
you’ll wonder who to blame
Whose idea was this
just who is in charge here
can they be counted on to deliver
anything besides more fear
if there’s anything you still know is real
anything you know is true
your mission is to hold it up
even if they come for you
