about

A workplace bully, set to music. Take that, bully!

lyrics

Who says the devil sews all the fine seams?
What sort of tailor unravels your dreams?
It's so unfair to crus all my butterfly wings
Damn you, you devil, get out of my life!

Stitching a world out of recycled wool
Rescuing hope from a desperate pool
It's so unfair to damage such fragile things
Damn you, you devil, get out of my life!

You can glare with your eyes
You can point with your horns
But I'll do what I want to do.
You can drum with your hooves
You can thrash with your tail
But I'm not afraid of you.

No I'm not afraid of you and I'll do what I want to do...

Yes, I'll weave a tapestry out of good deeds
I'll plant garden with hope-scented seeds
Breath of fresh air to blow all your feathers away
Damn you, you devil get out of my life
That's all I have to say.
