The Company I Keep

Note: Some folks have probably read this a while ago. I posted the original version of this in May of 2007. I’ve reworked the personal pronouns for this version.

The company I keep is all in my head
it’s safer that way
Given what gets said
Sometimes it’s laughter
and sometimes it’s not
Banter and chatter
it’s all what I thought

The company I keep is all in my head
it’s safer that way
That’s what she said
Sometimes it’s laughter
and sometimes it’s not
A complex disaster
Of emotions and thought

The company I keep is all in my head
Alone in a crowd
A feeling of dread
I look in the mirror
They’re laughing at me
The picture is clearer
It’s the only one I see

The company I keep is all in my head
Strike up the band
It’s a long road ahead
Let’s all sing along
Thou we can’t hear a note
The noise is too strong
Don’t touch the remote

The company I keep is all in my head
It’s standing room only
says the sign overhead
I ask them to stop
and they laugh at me more
Climb up to the to top
I know I can soar

The company we keep is all in our head
it’s safer that way
Given what gets said
Sometimes it’s laughter
and sometimes it’s not
Banter and chatter
it’s all what we thought
