too young to know what's best
if we try to make a point
they put our words to rest.
Our attitudes are never pleasant;
they don't understand us but
to their rules, we comply.
They don't know what we go through
the stress by which we live
they tune us out and stomp us down
mercy they will not give.
Can't make choices for ourselves
instead they run our lives
when independence we receive
how then will we survive?
Relinquishing control is not
something they want to do
we cannot have freedom, for
our souls, they cannot lose.
If we succumb to their desires;
don't learn to ask why
we'll always be their prisoners
never see open sky.
Why should they tell us what to do?
Who put them in control?
Don't let them tell you what to think
they're scared of what you know.
