Once I Was....

 

Once I was a person, someone with a mind,

but that is often in the past, you will surely find.

 

I’m simply held to ransom, just controlled by threat

the things that you demand from me you ensure you get.

 

Master manipulation, pulling on those strings,

making me a servant when my controllers sing,

 

for days on end,

all through the night,

be prepared

or face a fight.

Those words we say,

they could be true,

so we have got

a hold on you.

Take a chance

you might face war

knowing we will

always score;

so better be safe,

toe the line,

do as we say

and things are fine.

 

So swallow up my feelings and prepare to serve,

don’t think, just do, co-operate, or I will surely swerve.

 

I’m waiting here, in tension, listening for your call,

but understand it’s only a time before I’m gonna fall.

 

Go ahead, take full advantage, while I’m still alive;

soon enough you’ll have to learn to make yourself survive.
