I spent my lifetime taking what you said to heart
You’ve had control of me right from the very start
Pilot my weakest moment
Accept a kid’s devotion
You tore the truth and me apart

For 29 years
29 years

I have been bought and sold since before I could speak
They rest upon the top and prey upon the weak
Everything I’ve ever learned is a lie
Everything you told me was a lie

There was no way for me to know
My mind polluted as I grow
This is a threat I cannot see
You do not know what’s best for me


from Paintstroke, released November 29, 2021
