tiny little voice

"do you have a choice?

what if you could throw it all away?"

growing up in fear

looking for an ear

enough to say

that everything'll be all right

they say it gets better, doesn't it?

but where you're standing now

doesn't matter how

don't turn on the light

do your daily dance

leap at every chance

drive away to gardens where you're safe

never tell a soul

how you keep control

or so you say

the world's catching up

and soon you'll be in Eden once again

but in the daily grind

gonna lose your mind

don't turn on the light

so you gotta get down

and keep your head down

or you're gonna die

find a willing friend

play the part again

parade around, silence everyone

stop a heart attack

get 'em off your back

but when you're done

there's a nagging little voice inside saying

"you have to live your truth."

what the hell is that?

got no time for that!

don't turn on the light

so you gotta get down

and keep your head down

or you're gonna die

find a loving man

hatch a simple plan

never gonna know if you don't try

biggest step to take

though it's gonna make your mother cry

but when she comes around

you'll find yourself in Eden once again

give the gift of sight

now the time is right

to turn on the light

don't you ever get down

and never keep your head down

you're not gonna die
