Mannequin

Back to the basics

I'm encumbered

Yet again

I run away

With all I've got

I ask you why you let me go

You said for reason you'll

Never even know

Mannequins of the world

Having their manic monday

Shrouded in a veil of conformation

Running with the dreams of others

Veering off of the course

Set by their heart

Who wants that

Same day

Same Shit

Nine

to

Five

Do you feel the breeze

The worlds about to change

Someones been suffocated again

Bound back

By a strip mine home

Resources depleted

Even when there needed

How can we grow

If we won't let anyone know

Healthcare is another verzion of assasination

Getting payed

To let people die

Wrecking famalies as if

The people in them are being

Picked off like flies

Fight back

Don't let them deny

Everything that is

Mighty

and

Right
