The lyrics of this song were inspired by a conflict resolution workshop i attended through my day job.



-----( verse )------------------------
Someone done you wrong
what you chose to focus on

This place becomes a zoo
with your drastic point of view

It brings you such a thrill
to rake someone over the grill

How'd you get to be so tough
what if i were to call your bluff
( Am, Em ) ( B7, Em )//

-----( refrain )------------------------
Imagination overflow
an ongoing variety show

Another daily fire drill
mountain out of a mole hill

Let's start over today
with something friendly to say

As an act of goodwill
we take a moment here to chill
( B7, Em )////

-----( verse )------------------------
Busting out of the gate
now, you just couldn't wait

The theater of your life
is a world full of strife

A victim you portray
is silly child’s play

I’m willing and able
here at the grown up table
( Am, Em ) ( B7, Em )//

-----( refrain )------------------------
If i were to make a bet
someone got you all upset

Be it as it may
how about you meet me halfway

This inevitable debate
always brings us back to checkmate

Please send me some good karma
I am so done with high drama
( B7, Em )////
