I guess I don’t mind the way that my brain unravels itself
Or hate the way that my heartbeat is automatic 
And after a certain amount of time the ringing in my ears becomes a bird call
The tingling in my hands and feet; a massage
My rusty gears are always oiled by society’s expectations
I can teach the clown to paint himself a smile
The wife to stay in the kitchen
The man to suppress his feelings
But some days I just don’t feel like it…

In today's society we are programmed to act in a way that will please others, but it's important for us to break free from those restrainsts and be unique individuals!
