If…Then

If…then
If…then
Like hands on a clock
Tick tock, tick tock

Listen…obey
Listen…obey
Beating out a rhythm
Keeping tune with time

Hear…do
Hear…do
Like the thumping of a heart
Pulsing, pounding, pulsing, pounding

We think there are other options
We hope for an in-between
A maybe
A sometimes —
There is none

Come…follow
Choose…this day
Not tomorrow
Or the next
But this day

Hot…cold
With…against
We think it hard
He thinks it easy

If…then
