Default Counting on you - Lyrics

Hi all

Here are some lyrics I wrote recently. They are based loosely around a verse in Genesis 22:6 where Abraham is standing poised over his son Isaac with a dagger raised in his hand which he is about to plunge into the boy's heart. I often wonder what thoughts were going through his mind at that moment and that gave the inspiration for the lyrics.

Counting on you

Think of a number
Multiply by two
Got a remainder?
Go back to school
I can't add
But I sure as heck can count
When the chips are down
Be sure I'll be counting on you

Taking a risk
A life is on the line
Do me a favour
Get here on time!
I can wait but
Only if I know that it's true
When it comes to the crunch
I'm assured I can count on you

Walking a tightrope
Keeping an even keel
My faith is tested
Through the deck of cards
That you deal
(No, I don't like the cards
that you deal)
Now the time has come
To try out those nerves of steel

From a project entitled ' A place among the nameless'

seems real. unlike where you try to rhyme every sentence and make it dull and too obvious.
