Dictated by you
You are our ruler

Intangible, yet…. not really
I could see you with my own two eyes

Sometimes your obnoxious sound appears
Only when the room is as a mouse

You tell me when to begin
You tell me when to leave
You tell me when to sleep
You tell me when to eat

I can’t rebel against you
I’m only cheating myself

Teachers adore you
Students despise you

Sometimes you give my freedom a cut-off
Other times I can’t wait for your dictation

You control us
In an uncontrollable way

Yes, though something I can’t fully grasp
I know your ins and outs

We can’t escape you
For you are everywhere we go

We’re lost without you
For your presence guides us

Can’t live with you
Can’t live without you

How you appear to me, I may choose
Though how you are ran, is beyond my control
