IT OBEYS

 

Trying to find myself in my wet skin
In my weary eyes, feeling happy when I’m not ill
It sounds sad but it’s real

 

My mind plays dirty tricks on me
And my body doesn’t understand

 

But it obeys, does not rebel
It obeys, does not rebel
It obeys, does not forget
To cause damage to myself
It obeys, does not forget
To cause damage to myself

 

Trying to lock the doors
And escape from the light outside
Find myself in the dark, with nobody to give me a hand
It sounds sad but it’s real

 

There’s no alternative, and my body doesn’t understand

 

And it obeys, does not rebel

It obeys, does not rebel
It obeys, does not forget
To cause damage to myself

 

And it obeys, does not forget
To cause damage to myself

And it obeys, does not forget
To cause damage to myself
