Empty Promises

It's disconcerting when a stranger like you comes along and doesn't conform, but wants to be different. This is how things are done around here, so why can't you be like everyone else? Your way goes against the grain. It's all wrong. We were getting on fine until you arrived. Now you're putting doubt in our minds. Making us think. What are we? What were we? What will we be? You're blackening the sky. Bad things happen to good people. Good things happen to bad people. It's absurd. Life had meaning and relevance before, but now we're so confused. We're going to have to change. No more pretence and make believe. No more empty promises.
