Lock the Doors and Elevate the Threat to Yellow
© Jason Paul Johnston 2006

Everyone's a threat – we are subject to search
We are herded, we are prodded and security looks stern
Oh when will we learn?
Just to stay inside and fear all the world we can’t change
All the terror, all the terror – oh the terror – they're insane!
And so easy to blame...

Lock, Lock double lock the doors behind you
Never looking out, always looking in it's so much safer
They all threaten everything you stand for
Never let them in, it’s the only sure way to remain the same
The only way we’ll stay the same

Follow all the rules, memorize them each day
Keep them pinned inside your jacket, post them in your door ways...
Mark each step the same
Never ever doubt, stop that questioning
Keep it steady, keep it steady, keep it steady
This boat is amazing! If you stop rocking…

You stir every instinct to just fear what we don’t know
If we use our minds and hearts, we can see right through this show
“Remove their humanity” is the first lie that’s told
And then it’s easier to pluck off their souls…
