Gravity

*all grammatical errors are purposeful*


I've always been told to
Not speak unless I'm spoke to
Do the things that I'm supposed to

Stay on the right train tracks
Bite my tongue, better hold back
Don't complain about what I lack

I've always come with a warning sign
Freak kid, seek the kid who speaks their mind
Hunt them down until there's none left to find
Crush them under society's rigid lines

Well.

Watch me break free
I will snap these chains you put around me
Yeah watch me make a storm
What are you going to do when I don't conform?
Yeah, I'm knocking at your door
And you better let me in now
Because if you don't open up,
I will break you down
Watch me be me
And fly like I never knew gravity.

I've always been promised
A better future after this
Is there something I missed?

You raised me to fall
Taught me everything was my fault
Now I'm standing up tall

Maybe you shut me up yesterday
Because you were afraid of what I'd say
But if you push a pendulum, try to make it stay
It'll come screaming right back anyway...

Watch me break free
I will snap these chains you put around me
Yeah watch me make a storm
What are you going to do when I don't conform?
Yeah, I'm knocking at your door
And you better let me in now
Because if you don't open up,
I will break you down
Watch me be me
And fly like I never knew gravity.

You tried to put me
Under lock and key
But now I'll break free
And fly like I never knew gravity

You tried to trap me
In your chains of society
But now I'll be me
And now gravity doesn't apply to me

Watch me break free
I will snap these chains you put around me
Yeah watch me make a storm
What are you going to do when I don't conform?
Yeah, I'm knocking at your door
And you better let me in now
Because if you don't open up,
I will break you down
Watch me be me
And fly like I never knew gravity.
