Prisoner's Dilemma

1st Angle

The Word of God is in the can
Trust is meaningless
Revenge picked fresh
The prestige has disappeared
Methuselah’s door is shut
The refusal of the shadows
Won’t set the caveman free
The lilacs are in bloom
Hope can’t lift the lid on Pandora’s box
There are no children here

2nd Angle

Daily needs catered for inside the cell
Jesus Christ well disguised is tired
Of thin men arguing bout what to do
“Don’t you fools know anything by now?”
Always on the outside of whatever side there is
One flew over the cuckoo’s nest
Hate is whate’er you think it is
You send me postcards from the edge, stamped with a wedge
Hank Williams finally replied “Oh wow, I’m still in Hollywood”
Far from evil, idleness is the only good
While dead man walking learns how to stand between sliding doors
The master of the house is just around the corner
I got one last life line, one last call
Better pull myself together, there’s a ring inside these walls
Daily needs catered for inside the cell

3rd Angle

Encountering my first serve with I and it
The San Andreas Fault has split me down the middle
I placed my foot of pride upon the mercy seat
And I ain’t coming down ‘til the pricks kick up against of me
The Magician’s nephew wipes his brow
Held for questioning upon the silver chair
Keeping up appearances, the best man has no remedy
Following the wind, the wanted man has found dignity
But there is no advantage, the middleman’s second hand is numb
Between man’s wisdom and love’s folly
What invisible hand can frame thy fearful symmetry?
The value of a friend remains to be seen

Previously, outside the triangle

Trojans hooked fish duty free
Eloping to Paris along with their nemeses
Tragedy’s muse, daughters of memory
Calypso singers delaying odysseys
To reforge the seven seas
Down rivers of the underworld with wailing sirens
Pinning for resurrection, narcassistic relections
Inside naked forests littered, with golden nests
The Thunderbirds enlightened miner’s shallow pans
Warlords morpheined into discharged rest
