Lyrics: 

keep the pen that signed the pardon
keep it to the back

break the pen that signed the warrant
break it with a snap

keep the pen that signed the pardon
don't advertise that fact

break the pen that signed the warrant
but do it with some tact



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Love the inferred or at least my interpreted meaning of the metaphors. Concise and powerful.

I'm loving your vocals here - something a little Lucinda-like going on there, imo. Your words are so closely wedded to the rhythm guitar, it's almost as if they are another instrument. So tight. I love it! So short, like a delicious chocolate that is over too soon.

_This_ is how one does a metaphor. Awesome.

You keep a perfect balance of peace and violence, repetition and elaboration, thought and action, show and tell. And you do it in under 50 words.
