Behind your back, there's a door!


If you came to reap, not to sow
If you came to demolish, not to build
If you came to break, not to mend
If you came to gain, not contribute
If you came to clean, clear and wipe
If like an examiner, you came to test
And not to teach
Behind your back, there's a door

If you are an accountant looking for a job
A miner looking for site to dig gold
If you came with hidden hatred, not love
If you came to regain your status and dignity
If your intentions are all insane
Behind your back, there's a door!
