Paraffin - Samiam

your mouth
grew into your mind
no longer afraid
to say what you think
youve realized
that youre not as small
as they would like you to believe

dont feign approval anymore
and dont you shy away
they are the ones
who'll choke on their words
believe what you say

they threaten
and manipulate
shadows afraid of the light that creates them
they spit in your face to test you
they only show when its safe

dont feign approval anymore
and dont you shy away
they are the ones
who'll choke on their words

drawn to each pole
you can be swayed
with a voice in each ear
they coax you away
you never took the time
to weigh your thoughts
you never thought you could be held
responsible

they are the ones who'll choke on their words
believe what you say
