The Beast

When you can't be gentle or true
It's just the beast inside of you
Always thinking you need someone new
It's just the beast inside of you,

If you think you're one of the few
You're more gifted than anyone you knew
Telling each lover that you're through
Their pain means nothing to you,

And when the sky is no longer blue
And your thoughts are rather skewed
When you think you'll come unglued
All those cruel words that you spewed,

It's just the beast inside of you
When you can't be gentle or true
Always thinking you need someone new
It's just the beast inside of you,

You can't see the forest for the view
You've never had to pay your dues
Walking over others like it's a cruise
It's just the beast inside of you,

When you've drank from the witch's brew
And reality is no longer two plus two
Too late to kneel at the church pew
It's just the beast inside of you.

A-men.  We never know the formulae to turn venom back into elixir until it's foisted upon us.  And from the inside, we see, at least, what we DON'T want.  Disregard actually makes one complicit, but it is the key to the remedy of indifference, rather than disdain.  Just another thing that one cannot un-know, once foisted; it just simply wasn't by choice.

Yes, and I was going to add that a bird in the hand...…..can get pretty dirty.
