In a darkness you believe so bright,
When the night’s glare seems so light,
You are haunted by screen terrors,
Horrors, measured and contained within pixels,
‘Cause what you see is all about it
And all you see is about it.

When a mouse’s click
Defines the words you pick,
Courage found within comments,
Punctuated by hashtags; you rage
and you rage against it and about it
‘Cause you can see all about it.

And you know because it is so,
You fear you’re not,
You believe you’re not
The right man you’ve got.

Your next prayer is a Google search
Listing all the wrongs of this world.
With the internet becoming its own church,
You wish there was a hymn to say,
That real privilege was a way to say,
Black lives matter,
Officer’s lives matter,
Jews’ lives, Muslims’ lives…
They all matter.
But isn’t life all about choices
Where making a stand will make you feel
Small and uncertain?
Seeing the hate behind so many voices
Forces you to sit back down making you feel
Tall and certain!
Really, there’s nothing to it.

And you know because it is so,
You fear you’re not,
You believe you’re not
The right man you’ve got.

And here you are,
Time is giving you its finest hour:
The power of change, the power to vote,
Not a like, no, I mean a real vote.
Will you decide on changes
Or go with what’s confortable?
Will you choose the lesser of two evil
Taking what’s right out of the struggle?
But let me ask you, oh let me ask you
Can you have half a dance with the devil?

And you know because it is so,
You’re not,
You’re not
The right man you’ve got.
