Watch And Learn

(Sullivan) 2019

Monkey see, monkey do
What was it they showed to you?
Now you sense betrayal from a thousand yards away
They took your hand and let it go

Monkey observes, monkey makes
Same old monkey mistakes
3D copies of the weapons to be used
And all the flags are fakes

And the children’s eyes are open
And pretty soon they’ll take their turn
They don’t say much
But all the while they watch and learn

They’re putting up scaffold in the square
One day soon we’ll all be there
The accused will be as guilty as the accusers say
We’ll see ourselves and turn away
And the children looking on
And pretty soon they’ll take their turn
They don’t say much
But all the while they watch and learn

Monkey thinks, so monkey thinks he knows
So monkey reaps what monkey sows
They took your hand and let it go
For the children’s eyes are open
And pretty soon they’ll take their turn
They don’t say much
But all the while they watch and learn
