​Lonely Security Guard

This song is by Hayden and appears on the album In Field & Town (2008).

Oh so lonely security guard, he looks so mean from afar
But when you get up close you'll see
He could not hurt a flea
He stands there in the heat
Looking straight down a his feet
And with his hands and an old receipt
He makes a swan so real it breathes

Oh so lonely security guard, can make you cry with a business card
Can make a cricket from a parking ticket
Can make a bird from some thrown out words
But he cannot control this herd
'Cause he does not look up when he should
He relies on the people's good
A big mistake in this neighborhood

Oh so lonely security guard, didn't notice me at all
So I grabbed the first thing I saw
And walked right out the front door
But he had just made a paper sword
And threw me right down on the floor
And everyone standing near that store
Witnessed a one-sided war

Origami Security guard, he looks so mean from afar
But when you get up close you'll see
That he's no cup of tea
