"The Situationist" as written by and Francesca Maeondra Richard Keyshia Cole....
A simple case of timing,
One thin thred,
A thimbleful of lies.
A lie along the way

Could make your wave,
Then we'd all say your name.
Fly your flag away
And see who waves,

They might just say your name.
I loved the time when
A little clumsy rhyming
Could fit the crown on your head.

Head down arms straight out,
Left without having completely sussed it out.
Head to the sun I have left to run

    General CommentProbably my favorite Shiner song...I think it is basically the discovery of untrustworthiness in a relatively short relationship or friendship, thus ending it prematurely. The line “head down arms straight out” gives the vague inference of some martyrdom within the relationship/friendship and the “crown on your head” may relate to a crown of thorns. So maybe the other person in the relationship/friendship acted as if he/she was always the martyr in a situation or something along those lines. This could also be read a little bit more literally (and probably a little bit more realistically) as a commentary on Christianity and the uselessness of worshipping Christ. I get the impression they are commenting on how Christ was just a normal man but “a thimbulful of lies” caused him to be worshipped as the Son of God.
