Have you ever heard of scruples?
Did you know they're really small,
and that their number will quadruple
in your heart the less you call
someone the things you say
when you know something else is true?
So, will you listen while I play
with what a scrupled heart can do?
A scrupled heart will guide you
through the times that try the most,
like when events in life deride you;
when you're most inclined to boast
about something you might have thought,
as if so thinking you're the one,
and only person in the world
for whom so thinking has been done.
So, thinking with consideration
of a scruples lack,
without scruples in your heart
your heart scruples can't attack plaque.
Doctors can't remove them.
They're organic where they grow.
I thought that common knowledge,
but some people didn't know.
