what i don’t know

10 Dec

they may be peaceful, they may be good

but don’t let them into my neighborhood

they talk funny and wear weird clothes

and they might want to hurt me or my kids

you just never ever know and

what i don’t know

makes me crazy with fear

makes me want to close myself off

with metal detectors and guns galore

i don’t know who you are

so stay away from my shore

what i don’t know

robs me of my trust

makes me hard to live with

makes me hard straight on through

from the bill of my cap

to the tips of my shoes

what i don’t know

it’s out there waiting

what else can i do?
