Sly Soldier

For Old times sake
I should call you a smooth criminal
A ‘goal getter’
A Steve Austin action figure
But I promised not to fake
So let me tell you the truth

You used to be cool
You used to be that dude I looked up to
You used to be a mix of Jesus and hood
Now you are just broken glass
The semblance of a fool
A drunken shadow of your past

Let it be said everywhere
The silhouette of the lion is naked
Its roar is mute and looks like a yawn
Once upon a time was a black fire
Now it is just white ash
For the kids’ sake, I brand you ‘a mistake’
