Well, on this rare occasion for me, - Sunfire (alias) prior to finishing the lyric asked if I'd consider the lyric, if not, no problem.
- And so, yes:
There is something there!
I asked my usual, "why me?" and etc. - for me, it's important for a number of reasons.
So, as I lived with it across these short few days, this, what I call "framing", - came up. I think of, some, demo's as "story boards" to cut up and rearrange even (some, not all), - as that may happen. So, with all that, this is what formed from itself.
So, I then, prior to posting, - read the accumulated comments; and me, not commenting on content then, - I actually feel the song is about not having an adversary, - not that it is inevitable, I really don't believe that it is inevitable, or "human nature", - no.
- My life experience to date has been that a conflict occurs only if one really really really wants one, no matter what the attacked side does. I can't make anyone be "my friend" or not "hate me", - they choose to expend that energy and do so. We only have control over how we react. (Individual, organisation, country, et alia.)
- I've actually interviewed, or rather, interrogated a few certifiable "asheholes" in relevant context, (countries are made up of individuals), and never once when asked,
~~ "did you realize what you were doing, proactively, or only came to realize it later when someone pointed out?" The answer, always, was, "of course I knew, why would anyone need to tell me?" So, it is intentional and a choice, not "human nature". Breathing, is human nature, wanting friends is human nature, eating and sharing food is human nature. Tribalism? Really? "That's", - tribalism? No.
Someone protecting their self is not an adversary (individual, group, country).
What then, are they?
We are all the Leadership-management of our own lives. Don't provide the part they need for "adversary", don't take the "bait". However, if they then, *emboldened strike you with their stick, - take it, their stick, and with prejudice, beat them until it breaks or they stop moving and only stop to ask if they understand yet.
In my life experience, one will have nearly zero if not zero "Adversary's" in their life.
- Be an individual, however, no need to spray any of you, on anyone else, - correct?
What it IS.
Free, for all, not a free-for-all.

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