They weave and try to possess
The more I fight the more they caress
I try to put them aside
But it hurts when I try…
And as I tug, I weaken to tears
And remain unknowing of the source of these fears
It is no physical tiredness
That makes me so careless
Nor is it the fact that these days
Have been stressing my nerves in all ways…
It is the loving hands
That try to force me into chains.
If I were to forever stay the same
No joy nor sorrow could remain
Life would keep moving when I’ve stopped
And I’d sit here in the dust, alone, forgot…
Why do I feel the need to live this pain?
Wasn’t it enough to have to love again
Wasn’t it enough that both of them hurt me now
Why is it that all of these have to darken my brow?
Why are they so bent to keep me safe?
(In a nice little box) , Oh, shut up you chains!
Why is it that suddenly I’m something to own?
A goddamn memory of what I had first shown?
I am no person that changes with time?
I’m merely some object of affection to keep inside
To lock away and protect
Even when I try to object…
What’s the use of it anymore?
Freedom is screaming, begging me to come ashore
To leave this unsteady boat of being kept
And still just a beautiful thing, no matter how I wept…
None of my tears could ever prove
Something that you’re not willing to see, it’s… cruel
Because its hurting me, and no matter how you say
That my happiness is all you care for in every way
It still is you that forces me to tears
And brings out my claustrophobic fears…
That I’m just something you’ve decided to put in your pocket
Something to keep in a cage with a large locket…
No longer human, I feel…
It doesn’t matter what you try to tell me here.
You can say all you want about your noble truth
But you see, it’s no use.
You say you trust me, and I don’t believe
And never will if you keep causing me this grief.
How is it that I’ve “changed”?
And why does this make me seem deranged, as if
I were the only person in the world
Who’s ever taken life’s twirl
And twisted off in another direction
Or sifted through to another dimension, why
Do you accuse me of things
Without any proof of my sins
Why do you persist that I’m hiding them
When all I’m hiding is how it hurts when this is what you send.
