For too long I played it safe.
Did everything that you wanted me to do for you.
I held my tongue and closed my eyes,
did everything that a good boy is supposed to do but I:
in the blur of right and wrong I found a voice that describes it the best.
Mightier than one thousand swords it calms the storm it creates and reshapes my face.
To say what I want I need to find a word that doesn't exist.
I can be a master or a slave,
wear one thousand different faces you'd never resist.
Tell me to say what I want to and then you pin it on me.
Expected to pay for what I can't do.
Then you tell me it's free but that I'll never be.
Maybe I made a mistake saying everything I wanted to.
You've got your finger pointed straight at me.
I hop you hear these words because I'm talking to you,
and I wasted my time, my breath, and everything that I gave to you.
Freedoms fulfilled take their toll.
Show me the one and only word that describes you,
you're quick to judge;
I'm serving my sentence.
Every word I write is evidence.
Forgive me for my honesty.
I can't learn to choke on these words and I won't,
then you pin it on me.
Disclaimer. I'll say what I want
Complaint, you add your name to the list.
If I can find the words you will,
I've got nothing to hide and no one to impress.
I can't learn to choke on these words and I won't.
So you can pin it on me
