Name of Song: Meeting with “instant”

What do you say,
What do you do,
How does one talk
to another, or just you.

Unclear predictions,
Identify in kind,
As you deal with the impulses
from another’s hidden mind.

Hard to predict,
What’s inside a mind,
Hard to just know
what to say at the time.

Chorus
Meeting with “instant”,
Their tolerance for life,
What do you say
so you don’t stir their strife.
Meeting with “instant”,
First impressions can last,
But what about later
when their “instant” has passed.

Bridge
There’s no way around it,
You have to be kind,
You never know when
they’ll unleash with their mind.
The spirit is kind,
The mind not so much,
You must take into account
our condition as such.

How long’s YOUR “instant’,
A minute or a day,
When does your willingness
sorta stop or decay.

This is our story
of social unrest,
For friends and our families
Always give it our best.

We try to be civil,
We try to be nice,
We try to be pleasant
but personalities splice.

Mysteries of ages,
“In our face” all the time,
Becoming familiar
seems to soften their mind.
