head first into the future

stay calm when others start to go wild
your job is to keep order to the last
to keep the present right out of the past
and differentiate parent from child
our answers have been properly styled
at our bravado others stand aghast
our message has been nailed to the mast
and all our rivals have been beguiled
a name we hear turns into a threat
what we may see is never truly real
any old lie will suffice in a pinch
i know that you will dare to take the bet
and watch as others make the final deal
while you are dying slowly inch by inch
