A leader has a lonely role
he has not friend nor foe,
only people following
to see where they should go.

Let him fall or stumble
and the people stay in line,
like lemmings going to their death,
they do not seem to mind.

On him the stress of all their lives,
a burden he must bear,
what if he breaks? I’ll tell you this,
they do not really care.

They’ll change their path to someone else
for it is strange but true
that some are born to go ahead,
while others follow through.
