Minefields

Don’t set me off – I’m a megaton bomb on a millimetre long fuse
If I blow my top I give no explanation you can use
I’d say it’s you…but I ‘d use any excuse
If I’m trapped in a box and escape is in doubt
Or stuck in a corner and there is no way out

All my past lies waiting – sometimes it pops up unannounced
No relevance at all – anger hate fear and doubt
Nothing to do with you at all…it just bursts it’s way out
From its hiding place where no one sees its face
To a monster raging loose in the light of day

There are minefields all around all around
There are minefields all around
There are minefields all around all around
All around me

So if you wondered why there was barbed wire all around
It’s safe to say you were on dangerous ground
Now I’m clearing it away bit by bit so stick around
It’s getting safer now and you know the way through
No one knows the route better than you do

And when I look at the wolf I see a sad dog
