tell us.


tell us that we're wrong

as we sing and preach the right song.


tell us that we're right

and then you keep us in your sight.


tell us that you care

and not even one damn point on our quiz you spare. 


tell us to say the words that people want to hear

but don't shout them because that fills your ears with fear.


tell us to speak the truth and nothing but

and once it comes out you all tell us to just shut up.


tell us to be who we are

oh, but not go that far.


tell us what to say, do, and think

believe it or not this makes our minds shrink. 


tell us to not moan and groan

please, just leave us alone.


tell us to pay attention to the lesson

this is my poem, full of so much aggeression.
