Broken Parachute - False Prophets

False Prophets

False Prophets
Music and Lyrics: Marcus Taylor

I hear the sound of knives being sharpened.
You’ve really gone and kicked the hornet’s nest.
I don’t doubt your good intentions,
But I won’t help you clean up this mess.

You put your faith in those false prophets,
Who told you what you wanted to hear.
You didn’t think when you stuck your neck out,
They’d simply all just disappear.

I didn’t come to say I told you so,
But I did, Yes I did.
There’s still time to put out the fire,
If you act quick,
Yes act quick.

Lets chalk this up to a learning experience,
Life is just a long series of those.
Maybe it will give you a little perspective,
Before the hard wind starts to blow.

I didn’t come to say I told you so,
But I did, Yes I did.
There’s still time to put out the fire,
If you act quick,
Act quick.

I hear the sound of knives being sharpened,
You’ve really gone and kicked the hornet’s nest.
I don’t doubt your good intentions,
But I won’t help you clean up this mess.
