Don’t drop the ball © (lyrics)

Words are as harmful

As nothing said at all

One word in particular

Can start a classroom brawl,

But words are meaningless

Unless meaning exists

Ink on a paper

Doesn’t actually live

 

Don’t drop the ball

The talent is yours

Don’t let them take it

It’ll perish too soon;

Caught in two minds

It’s hard to choose

Whatever the score

It’ll feel like a lose

 

Individuals – no longer seen

Crowds too busy – blending in

If nothing matters

Why does it matter at all?

Faceless fears

Are worst of all

If you don’t turn up

There’s nothing at all

 

Don’t drop the ball

The talent is yours

Don’t let them take it

It’ll perish too soon;

Caught in two minds

It’s hard to choose

Whatever the score

It’ll feel like a lose

 

Walking in that gym

With everything that’s ever been

Shadow casts upon play

Living ghost from yesterday

Haunting in the lives we live

Daunting in the fear it brings

Wear a nameless shirt

He won’t know how to pull the strings

 

Don’t drop the ball

The talent is yours

Don’t let them take it

It’ll perish too soon;

Caught in two minds

It’s hard to choose

Whatever the score

It’ll feel like a lose
