Slippery Slope (Sam Whimpenny)

With my smoking gun and my metaphors I have a small tall tale for you
You see the winds of the world's experience are about to make the Truth come true
The signs are all there, co-located in a row
We'll just wait for the moment when the Manager says Go (GO!)

Shine that light in the cave of hope
You gotta show some bottle as you slip down the slippery slope

After 50 years of chasing dreams of dust
I think I've stumbled on another way
Looks like I beat that problem of who can you trust
But what I know now isn't easy to say

Events will occur, no Risk Management prevents
The Crazy, the Fool and the Malcontent

Shine that light in the cave of hope
You gotta show some bottle as you slip down the slippery slope

Shine that light in the cave of hope
You know there's no point now in the old soft soap
I might have lost my way but I brought my rope
And there are none so blind as they who will not grope
So giving up's got to be the new way to cope
Cos you can whinge you can whine you can moan and mope

But you gotta show some bottle as you slip down the slippery slope
