Keep your friends close and your enemies closer
When you know you can’t trust someone, keep them close so you know what they’re up to.
This is an old saying made popular by Michael Corleone (a fictional character) in The Godfather, which this song pays homage to.
My father taught me many things here — he taught me in this room. He taught me — keep your friends close but your enemies closer.
