"How Far Down Do You Need To Go"

How far down do you need to go_
~to stand face to face and toe to toe_
~with that no-good son of a so and so?
Taking not only yourself but all you know.
Descending from on high to deep below_


How many of your friends are now your foe?
Rejecting all the trials meant to help you grow.
Didn't you get the message or read the memo?
To suffer a little today and not eternal woe?
Did you forget the law of_ “Reap and Sow”?

You can't ride with the devil_ you're too slow_
He's got the best saddle around this rodeo.
Lines his horse up four to a row_
Apocalyptic stallions galloping to and fro.
Charging full speed ahead with resilient gusto
Scorching hot winds from their lungs to blow_

Upon all those whose souls don't glow_
From hot veins where passion flow_
~fight to reject vile secret audio
~silent messages broadcast on radio.
Mind control media from news to talk shows.
Wouldn't go near him as far as I can throw.

Best not stomp around but quietly tiptoe.
Take your heart off your sleeve keep it undertow.
If you failed today try again tomorrow
For your deeds complies_ gifted wrapped in a bow
Your final payment is what you'll come to owe.
Your bold stance morphs a wispy cameo.

Ill-fated effects of enacted domino.
How far down do you need to go_
~to stand face to face and toe to toe_
~with that no-good son of a so and so?
Taking not only yourself but all you know.
Descending from on high to deep below_
