Thought I was breaking free – when they said you’re going to live your dream – that I’d been given wings – but I didn’t see the pins – that they built to fix me in place – the pins that make me feel like I’m not safe – if a bullet’s fired in my direction – getting out of the way is out of the question – and don’t tell me there are no bullets when you don’t know what a bullet looks like – there’s always someone shooting at you when you’re living at this great height – so NO everything I wanted – wasn’t everything I wanted – yeah I wished I was special – but now I’m one-dimensional – and all anyone says is what about this song – and what about that song – and what about the other song – my brain had other things in it but they don’t matter anymore – the rest of what makes me – me – completely – ignored – I thought I was breaking free – but all I left behind was who I used to be – how much of me? – ninety per cent, maybe – and I did it so quietly – I climbed into their frame – let them give me a new name – spread my wings – and said stick them in – YEAH push your pins – right through my skin – and the more holes – I got the less whole – I became – now I’m trying harder to use that brain…
