"Consequence" as written by Brandon Charles Boyd, Michael Aaron Einziger, Alex Katunich, Christopher E Kilmore and Jose Anthony Pasillas Ii....
Blink and you miss a beat

Keep one of your eyes open at all times
Think that you're on the brink?
The shit hasn't even begun to hit the fan
Consequence you'll see will be stranger than a gang of drunken mimes
Situation has a stink
Better clear the air before your son becomes a man

Blink

Everything's been augmented
You've been left so far behind
Think, for sure, next time you should wear a pair of eyes in the back of your
head
Consequence you've seen has been stranger than sci-fi of any kind
Situation baffles me
I guess it's true you are too one of the walking dead

You better think fast!
?Cause you never know what's comin' around the bend
You better not blink!
For consequence is a bigger word than you think
It's bigger than you and me

    General CommentThis song is about how Brandon's girlfirend of 7 years cheated on him and then became pregnant with her lover's baby; "Before your son becomes a man" And the consequence of cheating on Brandon. Who would want to cheat on him any way? You are a fool girl for doing so!
