GUILT. Guilt is the currency you use to pay for evil things you do or imagine doing. When you have paid long enough you can do the same evil thing again. Guilt has no function in stopping harmful actions.

A sense of guilt

Words & music by Charlie McLight

I cheated in a game
And came out a winner
Now I feel shame
I might be a sinner
I am late for my date
This has happened before
I think that’s my fate
Guilt evens my score

A sense of guilt means I will do it again
A sense of guilt means I'll repeat just the same
I feel guilty – so I've paid my dues
Let's move on – continue to abuse

My son wants to play
But I have to work
So I put him off
And feel like a jerk
I cheated on my wife
Though she never let me down
I am sick of my life
Guilt’s my martyr crown

A sense of guilt means I will do it again
A sense of guilt means I'll repeat just the same
I feel guilty – so I've paid my dues
Let's move on – continue to abuse

I'd better stop and go to the core
Face the person I'm afraid to be
The one being shy, unfair or more
I'm sorry, that's too deep for me

No, I drop guilt and see w­­­­hat I really long for
Underneath all that stuff is my exit door
See whom I’ve been covering up with guilt
One who really wants it to matter that he lived …
no sense of guilt
