Seth Sentry – Play It Safe

Seth Sentry – Play It Safe

[Intro: Kids]
Good morning Mr Sentry!

[Verse 1: Seth Sentry]
Good morning kids, thanks for the warm welcome
You too, Mr Nelson, you look well for a thousand
It really brought back feelings of fear when that bell rung
Such an honour to be back in a school that I was expelled from
Yeah, hopefully this might inspire and help some
Stick with your education, you’ll never make it without one
Sound fun? Well fuck fun, the world’s a dangerous place
You’ll never make it out alive, so just play it safe
Okay, now write down all your dreams on this circle of paper
Okay, now scribble that shit out if that work doesn’t pay well
Money is everything so let it bring you merriment
Become obsessed with it and make the same mistakes your parents did (Okay)
So get a shitty job that makes you sick and tired
Then rent a little box so you can think inside it
Don’t live like I did, don’t follow what your passion is
Or else you might have nothing but your happiness, just play it safe

[Hook: Kids]
I’m by myself inside my little safe world
I’m inside my door, there’s all too much I don’t know
If I go out I might not ever come home (Ooh)
I might not ever come home so I’ll just do what I’m told

[Pre-Verse Ad-Libs: Seth Sentry]
Alright, calm down. Oy

[Verse 2: Seth Sentry]
I saw that you all were bored during this morning’s talk
You all are drawn to the world and want to explore it all
Every mountain, every forest, every waterfall
Don’t worry, you will learn to worry more when you are more mature
‘Cause you could fall right off a mountain, forests are full of wolves
Waterfalls are wet so you’re probably best to avoid ’em all (Oooh)
Yeah, fear is a part of being a grown adult
Make sure that you’re insured ‘fore you think of walking towards the door
‘Cause you could die just walking to the corner store
You probably ought to stay at home and roll yourself in cotton wool
Reinforce the walls, install a burglar alarm
Purchase a gun and shoot the first person to walk on your lawn
(Woah!) But keep an eye out for the pizza guy
And watch the scary world through your Venetian blinds
Now everybody say it with me, "Don’t take risks ’cause risks are risky"
Yeah, you’re damn right, just play it safe

[Hook: Kids]
I’m by myself inside my little safe world
I’m inside my door, there’s all too much I don’t know
If I go out I might not ever come home (Ooh)
I might not ever come home so I’ll just do what I’m told

[Verse 3: Seth Sentry]
Dance like everyone is staring at you
Love like you’re scared of having your heart broke
Live like you’re scared of making mistakes
And sing like you’re being judged by a bunch of talentless arseholes
At night time, lay awake in your little wooden bed
And run through the entire day thinking of things you shoulda said
Be afraid of trying new things, you should be scared
All the time, you should try to live a life that you regret
Yeah, I’m glad I got the chance to talk to you
By now you’re probably all confused and you just don’t know what to do
Yeah, life’s a riddle, let me give you all a clue
Go and do the opposite of everything I told you to, play it safe

[Hook: Kids]
I’m by myself inside my little safe world
I’m inside my door, there’s all too much I don’t know
If I go out I might not ever come home (Ooh)
I might not ever come home so I’ll just do what I’m told

[Outro]
Bop bop bop bop
Yeah, by myself
