Idle Hands

nervous fingers
poison ink
faceless snipers
in the stands

idle hands
idle hands

pen is envy
vain and soft
overloaded
undermanned

idle hand
idle hands

their watches run backwards
they miss every sign
but they always delive
they're paid by the line

they've all seen the future
they'll rant and they'll rave
but they're always riding
the crest of the wave

nest of vipers
spit venom on command
skins shed in shadow
heads in the sand

idle hands
idle hands

see the mighty
brought down by the meek
those who can do
those who can't critique

idle hands
idle hands
