Eight Easy Steps

Eight Easy Steps
by Alanis Morissette

How to stay paralyzed by fear of abandonment
How to defer to men in solve-able predicaments
How to control someone to be a carbon copy of you
How to have that not work and have them
run away from you

How to keep people at arm's length
and never get too close
How to mistrust the ones you supposedly
love the most
How to pretend you're fine and don't need
help from anyone
How to feel worthless unless you're serving
or helping someone

I'll teach you all this in eight easy steps
A course of a lifetime you'll never forget
I'll show you how to in eight easy steps
I'll show you how leadership looks when
taught by the best

How to hate women when you're supposed
to be a feminist
How to play all pious when you're
really a hypocrite
How to hate god when you're a pray-er
and a spiritualist
How to sabotage your fantasies
by fears of success

I'll teach you all this in eight easy steps
A course of a lifetime you'll never forget
I'll show you how to in eight easy steps
I'll show you how leadership looks when
taught by the best

I've been doing research for years
I've been practicing my ass off
I've been training my whole life for
this moment I swear to you
Culminating just to be this well-versed
leader before you

I'll teach you all this in eight easy steps
A course of a lifetime you'll never forget
I'll show you how to in eight easy steps
I'll show you how leadership looks when
taught by the best

How to lie to yourself and thereby to everyone else
How to keep smiling when you're thinking of
killing yourself
How to numb a la holic to avoid going within
How to stay stuck in blue by blaming
them for everything

I'll teach you all this in eight easy steps
A course of a lifetime you'll never forget
I'll show you how to in eight easy steps
I'll show you how leadership looks when
taught by the best

That is what they mean by "living in the real world" isn't it.

Sorry Kyra, maybe I should have flagged that one with an "Irony Alert"!
But isn't that what they say when they've stolen your ideas, taken credit for your work, backstabbed you or manipulated you? And when you complain about the injustice of it they just smirk and tell you that you're just too naive. You should have seen that one coming.
I know I keep coming back to this quote time and again, but if you've seen 'The Mission' you'll understand why.
When the representative of the Church has sent soldiers to wipe out an entire village of South American indians who were living in perfect harmony, supporting themselves through "fair trade" etc, because they were seen as a threat to the slave trade and the wealthy land owners, he is gripped by remorse...

"You had no alternative your Imminence. We must work in the world. The world is thus."
"No, SeƱor Hontar, thus have we made the world. Thus have I made it."
