The Company You Keep

The Waiting

Another day to be dumb, confusion mingled with bliss 
A bit of revelation that I don't want to miss 
I heard bad company kills and absolutely it's true 
But then that doesn't explain all that I know about You 
That You call me Your own 
Never leave me alone I think I should warn You 
You're getting in deep 
With the company You keep 
So while my dinner gets done I'm reading Your history 
You've got a reputation and all the people You see 
Are a dangerous crowd they're an unsavory sort 
Though I can't say it too loud I heard an evil report 
The fool and the friendless 
The liar and thief 
The presence of greatness 
In the company of the least.
