I wake up everyday
To waste my time away
I walk around the house
Feeling as small as a mouse
I am sick of being stuck
In this lifeless cycle of muck

Filled with heartless words
Doomed as a flightless bird
I want to get out
But I have so many doubts

I will be stuck here forever
Forced to live in this endless endeavor
I am just a mindless thing
Nothing but a feather on a wing

Yet I keep telling myself
That I live free in a country of wealth
But I know it is not true
I am trapped just like you

We all believe what they say
Watching the news each and every day
Listening to there lies
Being part of their disguise

Yet we can't do anything
But be their puppet on a string
We know the government can be odd
But is it right for them to play god?
