The Sociopath

The Sociopath

I don’t like you but the whole world loves you
My vision seems to be skewed
They sing your praises, endorse your charm
But I’m just repelled by you
My brain is in disarray, my sanity cannot last
In the counterintuitive world of the sociopath

They celebrate you, the salt of the Earth
They kiss the ground at your feet
I cannot seem to conceal my revulsion
It’s hard to be discreet
Irrationality knows no bounds
My thoughts are a mish-mash
In the counterintuitive world of the sociopath

What do you play with?
Imagination
What is it saving?
Your reputation
As you herd the sheep the flock will follow
And they march blindly on like there’s no tomorrow

They see the second coming of Jesus, I just see a scam
If I force myself to like you my sanctity is damned
Where actions seem to speak for themselves but reactions are mismatched
We’re in the counterintuitive world of the sociopath

Where criticism is silenced, opposition is stoned
“The Emperor’s got no clothes on!”
He sits happily on his throne
We’ve got to keep the walls standing, his ego can’t collapse
And threaten the counterintuitive world of the sociopath

What do you play with?
Imagination
What is it saving?
Your reputation
As you herd the sheep the flock will follow
And then they fall in line time after time like there’s no tomorrow

My friends and acquaintances one by one keep falling for your act
In my singular minority I will not join the pact
How do I remain neutral and not proclaim myself a polymath?
I’m thinking life seems so much easier for the sociopath
Tell them the moon is made of cheese, they’ll gladly believe the lie
How can it be so easy for the spider to lure the fly?
In order to get by smoothly and not be Devil’s Advocate
I’d say to Hell with decency, be a sociopath

I’d say to Hell with decency, be a sociopath
