"Sharpening The Sticks" as written by and Robert Kleiner Kevin Charles Gibson....
He said it's better I don't go
Passive/aggressive tendencies
But that gave him time to think
Too much is no good thing
And now he'll just do as he pleases

They never felt like this not once
I know they do it all for kicks
Because of what he does
You pay no mind to us
Cause we're just sharpening our sticks

She knew she heard this tale before
But it had changed a million times
She had enough of it
So much it made her sick
Embellishment is still a lie

They never felt like this not once
I know they do it all for kicks
Because of what he does
You pay no mind to us
Cause we're just sharpening our sticks

It's time to prepare yourself

They never felt like this not once
I know they do it all for kicks
Because of what he does
You pay no mind to us
Cause we're just sharpening our sticks

It's time to prepare yourself

    General CommentThis song is obvious. It's about how people, maybe even governmets, won't notice some very real threat just because it's small if there's a more obvious threat.
    "Cause we're just sharpening oursticks."
    He or she is doing something so bad that you'll ignore because we're simply fighting with some small weapon, meanwhile it's always those threats that win.
