Favorite Quote:
“Nothing can possibly be as cute as David Tennant holding a kitten. Cause the kitten is adorable and then David Tennant is adorable and then your head explodes and you wake up on the floor of your bedroom twenty minutes later with a sock in one hand and a crushed diet coke can in the other. If you’re lucky. If not, you die of fangasm. Although if that happened to me because of Jack, I could probably get Death by Torchwood on my death certificate….”


Verse 1:
Silly traditions
Balancing on laws
Half-remembered
Do it this way—that’s not right
Fold your hands and
Say grace tonight

Chorus:
Well I’m not
Just some puppet
I won’t
Put my hands together for you
Cause you don’t deserve a round of applause
For makin’ me the clay
In your hands

Verse 2:
Don’t wear that—it’s not right
Much too short for you to wear tonight
I understand
Mother dear
You want me safe
But…

Chorus:
Well I’m not
Just some puppet
I won’t
Put my hands together for you
Cause you don’t deserve a round of applause
For makin’ me the clay
In your hands


Verse 3 (B-section):
If you pretend
It won’t go away
Father dear
I’m dancing today
I’ll be alright
I’ll be safe
You’ve taught me well
Now…
LET ME OUT OF THIS PLACE

Chorus:
Well I’m not
Just some puppet
I won’t
Put my hands together for you
Cause you don’t deserve a round of applause
For makin’ me the clay
In your hands

Verse 4:
You don’t like that music
It gives you headaches—much too loud
What do you know about my head?
Why can’t you go after my sister instead?
Just for once
Let me take a stand
Show you
Maybe you’ll understand

Chorus:
That I’m not
Just some puppet
I won’t
Put my hands together for you
Cause you don’t deserve a round of applause
For makin’ me the clay
In your hands

Stop makin’ me the clay
In your hands…

A song about being tired of your parents running your life--cliched, maybe, but so much fun!
