Not a Bad Guy (DS9: Improbable Cause)

from Song Trek by Adam Sakellarides

lyrics

A simple tailor— that is my trade
classified are my dossiers
You accuse me of giving away
secrets of the state

My mind's sharp like / obsidian
So's my tongue / thus the trouble I'm in
But I always / wear a big grin
While sinister plans begin

I’m not a bad guy
But I’m not quite who you think
Doing some recon
Getting back in the swing

Pull on threads of lies I’ve woven
What do we find / at journey's end?
My assassin, also my friend
With a handshake— I’m back in

My first gig: info extraction
As soon as I push this button
Friend I’ll have you under my thumb
I give good interrogation

I’m not a bad guy
But I’m not quite who you think
Doing some recon
Getting back in the swing

Pull on threads it all comes apart
A sleeve's no place to wear one's heart
We don’t want a rumor to start
Sew our mouths shut as we part

The boy who cried wolf wasn’t so nice
He told the town’s people his lies
His flock’s dead so here’s the advice:
Never tell the same lie twice
Never tell the same lie twice
Never tell the same lie twice
