Look at you there
Talking of God and art and beauty
You must make momma proud
You work so hard to be the best
Then go home and ignore the truth
You refuse to see what it is you’re living in
The way they treat her is a far cry from how you are seen
You used to be her role model
She wanted to grow up just like you
But now you betray her in every way
As you get ready to fly
You’ve earned your wings little bird
While they have clipped hers
Because she is a misfit that they must fix
But you have an escape from it all
You have their trust and their blessing
So fly away
