New Face

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Who is this stranger?
This pretender to the throne.
Entranced by his name
His seeds have been sown

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 A legend in our ranks
To get us to the top
His lack of ambition
Is sure to make us stop

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 In our tracks where we are
Obscurity once more
Settled with being nowhere
Happy to get a draw

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 What are his credentials?
Can he really cut it?
My doubts cloud all
Hopes of leaving this pit

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Put faith in the board
They do the right thing
However much I disagree
Their views are king

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 In a new direction
They can read maps
Taking us where we’re going
In this race of many laps

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 We don’t get dizzy
When we look up
Despite what you think
We want to kiss a cup

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 There is my trust
Handed it all over
If you need luck
Here’s my four-leaf clover
