Occam's Razor



He has the knowledge
And you have the skill
To extract information
Before his comrades can kill
His silence may mean
Carnage's scene
So does the end
Justify the means
His human rights
Against innocent life
Somebody's child
Somebody's wife
You have the dilemma
Of how you must act
The idealist the luxury
Of talk after the fact
Whatever you do
It all ends the same
One way or another
You get the blame
Damned if you do
Damned if you don't
Damned if you will
Damned if you won't
He has the knowledge
And you have the skill
To extract information
Before his comrades can kill
