someone else's puppet

SOMEONE ELSE'S PUPPET
things in the dark go bump in the night
don't walk alone stay in the light
but even when i'm safe things get me still
whatever you wanted you took at will
and now i cannot look behind or ahead
and when i close my eyes all i see is the bed
where you took away from me all the things i thought i had
and all that i can hear is your cynical laugh
so i float away
so i feel no pain
just shut off my thoughts
she will stay in my place
rockabye baby in the tree tops
when the wind blows the cradle will rock
when the storm hits the cradle will fall
and baby's back in the real world
bullshit and all

stay the fuck away from me
leave me the hell alone
because everywhere i go
and everything i see
and everything i do contains memories of you and me
i am battered
and i'm shattered
and i cannot get away
i cannot escape
i wish you understood just what you did
and know why now i have to pretend
that everything is okay
but it's not
it is a lie
and i don't even know why
when it's been over a year
but still the thing i fear
the single thing is you
but you don't even care do you
or maybe you just can't
cause if you did then there are things you'd have to do
i wish i couldn't care too
to be unaffected
if i could sleep a dreamless night
for once wake up unafraid
without you in the back of my mind
i might end up all right
i just might be okay
and not be haunted throughout the day

things in the dark go bump in the night
don't walk alone stay in the light
but even when i'm safe things get me still
whatever you wanted you took at will
and now i cannot look behind or ahead
and when i close my eyes all i see is the bed
where you took away from me all the things i thought i had
and all that i can hear is your cynical laugh
so i float away
so i feel no pain
just shut off my thoughts
she will stay in my place
rockabye baby in the treetops
when the wind blows the cradle will rock
when the storm hits the cradle will fall
and baby's back in the real world
bullshit and all

you don't know what it's like
to feel how i do inside
to go through each day of my life
with these images scarring my eyes
but the pain does not stop there
because i don't face this alone
there's someone there when i go home
and he hates the things i go through
even more than i do
imagine
waking up in the night
with her screaming by your side
and no matter how you try
you can't stop her
and she cries
and she doesn't even know
how it tears you up inside
how could she
she's asleep
these are all things that she dreams
and it makes you want to scream
beacause it seems
that she is too
attached to
the pain he put her through
to ever love you true
no matter what you do
and she can protest this till she's blue
but you won't ever feel you know the truth
so what would you do
this is his life because of you

things in the dark go bump in the night
don't walk alone stay in the light
but even when i'm safe things get me still
whatever you wanted you took at will
and now i cannot look behind or ahead
and when i close my eyes all i see is the bed
where you took away from me all the things i thought i had
and all that i can hear is your cynical laugh
so i float away
so i feel no pain
just shut off my thoughts
she will stay in my place
rockabye baby in the treetops
when the wind blows the cradle will rock
when the storm hits the cradle will fall
and baby's back in the real world
bullshit and all
