Careful what you say around him
There‘s a word that
Sets him off

A little word, four letters long
Undoes all the progress
We’ve made so far

An ugly word, four letters long
Drills into his brain
Rolls in ink and prints on every inch

He screams and screams
To drown the sound out
Shoving it under the
Turbulent waves

But a nasty word, four letters long
Bubbles back to the surface
It has already escaped your lips
And the damage is done

Careful what you say around him
There’s a word that
Sets him off

A little word, four letters long
