Don’t Elect It

you don’t know a person‘s true self GC
until you’ve seen them in high stress DCG
that’s when the shadow will come out GC
and sometimes it’s a mess DCG

when people are pushed G
Beyond their comfort zone C
their true nature comes forth D
and you see what was unknown CG

The darkness in the subconscious Am/Em
settles and is rarely stirred Am/Em
but when you dive to that darkened place Am/Em
it’s stirred and then transferred Am/C

and then projected Dm
in a burst of light Am
and if you reflect it Em
it puts up a fight Am
detect it G
expect it C
respect it D
reject it CG
deflect it G
misdirect it C
disinfect it D
don’t elect it CG
