....but I had to put my anger in words....I dunno if it’s top or a flop, all I know is that I had to write it.
So feel free to.....yeah like always!

Cheerio for now!

White coat

Nowadays you must be careful A‘
Cause they are hiding everywhere
Patiently waiting for their time
They shouldn’t but you know they care
Maybe they do need attention
While some just live a boring life
Some enjoy the strength and power
Others may urge for civil strife

The world is full of these beings. A+
They always fight, eye for an eye
Look away when help is needed
Besides they are the perfect spy
If you don’t obey what they say
They become the witness and the judge
Find your face on Social media
Fit to hit the target with sludge

We always love to blame someone. B
We always search for guilt and sins
We always love to blame someone
As long as our coat stays white
We always love to blame someone
We always search for guilt and sins
As long as our smile shines bright
And our own coat stays white

The optimists blame the pessimists. C
The homophobic blame the gays
The wise ones say we can make it through
The dumb ones they blame me and you
The criminals blame the righteous ones
The religious blame the devil
The happy ones blame those who are blue
But what should a „normal“ person do?
Be quiet! Don’t say that you’ve got a clue
„Normal“ people don’t get asked for an interview

The world is full of these beings. A*
It is deep inside of us all
Be ready to face this evil
Resist it, if it’s growing tall

I don't think it's angry enough RK.
The tone I get from this is too rational.
It's written from the standpoint of someone "normal", but as a song I feel like it should be a call to arms.
It feels more sad than angry.

Mhh thanx RDM,
I will take some time to think about it and maybe I can come out with a bit more „anger“ an those lines. You are right when you use the word rational...that’s how my brain works, especially in times like this. But maybe it got more „sad“ because I tried to describe the anger ...I feel towards myself...I dunno.

Ty for your feedback
RK
