PRIDE COVETOUSNESS LUST ANGER AND SLOTH

When there is no time left to say I'm sorry
And even less to figure out why you should.

Stand aback

When you seem to be right just every time
And you're so sure you don't worry

Stand back

Stand back ; stand back from the assurances
They're just someone else telling someone else of your hidden excesses

How evenly does sorrow meet your pain
Or does the pleasure meet the game

And if these two dont quite match the same

Stand back

Hold fire on that withering comment
It may seem so smart

After the triumphant moment .

When the day is spent
And all that's torn is now rent

What' s said in words will surely plunder
And tare asunder

And make you wonder
Why ; like me you , maybe make you ask


Why I didn't

Stand back.
