It’s so fascinating, the way that you move.
They would have never seen anything like you.
They way that you talk, they’re not hearing your words
but watching as they fly like runaway birds.

They watch as you shy away from the dancefloor.
They find it confusing and want to know more.
Although you won’t see it while you’re still awake,
the cameras move closer with each breath you take.

You’re being analysed, all their eyes, all the time.
You’re the experiment.
They chop and change your life, their Frankenstein inside their lies.
You're the experiment.

They walk around setting traps and sit and wait.
hoping in secret that you’ll take the bait
so they can record the way you react.
Everything’s legal if you’re still intact.

You’re being analysed, all their eyes, all the time.
You’re the experiment.
They chop and change your life, their Frankenstein inside their lies.
You're the experiment.

Electrically charging the fences and walls.
Forced to stay low, you’re reduced to a crawl.
“For research’s good!” is their only defense.
Somehow they get away with this pretense.

There’s no sense in hiding
‘cause everywhere’s wired.
Don’t vent your fears, your confidants are liars.
The trigger’s been pulled so try not to get hit
by stones that they’ve thrown and the fires they’ve lit.

You’re being analysed, all their eyes, all the time.
You’re the experiment.
They chop and change your life, their Frankenstein inside their lies.
You're the experiment.
You’re being analysed, all their eyes, all the time.
You’re the experiment.

Learning to Smile
The Cutie Mark Poems – Ponies with Amorphis [Click here for the accompanying song] Learning to Smile I was a child of stones A daughter of the rock farmers No joy was known there But gloom and endless working Under the hot, blazing sun The barren fields, all without green Granites were our flowers Our grass made of sand and gravel I breathed the choking air on the wordless world I walked on soil bare of seeds… In a poor family among rocks A child was born with a bright mane Pink coat in colorless home Such a punchline in a grey world Gathered rocks in silence Aching hooves our pay for a hard work Dust on my eyes and throat I

MY LITTLE POEM – Ponies with Tristania [Click here for the accompanying song]  Mother's Wish With you No words can hurt me You are my light My sole candle For your smile is all I need to Carry you wherever Even with Distorted view… In my life I have faced it all Carried burdens, endured hardships Remained strong, held the tears inside Never let you end up the same path Your smile It's all I wanted It shines through Distorted view… I couldn't answer what went wrong Nor do I want to hold you down, nevermore: To help you shine brightest of all I'd gladly give away my wings I've tried my hardest to be the mot
