Puppet (Mankind Is Obsolete)

And you can play the games And you can speak the words But when the motion’s not enough, What will you let speak for you? Don’t want to follow Don’t want to be Another nameless, faceless, dreamer lost at sea And yet I’m here like everyone, Waiting in line for something more They say that time will bring conclusion, But that’s not what I’m living for Because I’m not some puppet anymore And I won’t follow anymore I’ve left these games for something more I’m not some puppet anymore I’m not some puppet anymore And I won’t follow anymore I’ve left these games for something more I’m not some puppet anymore Running circles just to move somewhere Feeling numb, cuz I’ve given everything But I don’t know who I can blame When I don’t know who pulls my puppet strings Don’t want to follow Don’t want to be Another nameless, faceless, dreamer lost at sea And yet I’m here like everyone, Waiting in line for something more They say that time will bring conclusion, But that’s not what I’m living for Because I’m not some puppet anymore And I won’t follow anymore I’ve left these games for something more I’m not some puppet anymore Don’t want to be in this mediocre place again I’m tearing down my walls now Of all the things that’s held me here Its time to rise, it’s time to fall Defeat the chains, defeat it all I’m going to live my life again I’m going to live my life again I’m going to live my life again Because I’m not some puppet anymore And I won’t follow anymore I’ve left these games for something more I’m not some puppet anymore I’m not some puppet anymore And I won’t follow anymore Not some puppet anymore More Than What I Am How many times have I sat here, Waiting with my pen, Trying to continue? And the words that won’t come out Find their way into my head With the visions I see When I close my eyes to dream I can’t fly And I can’t begin Cuz I can’t be more than what I am How can I rise From this life that I’m in, If I can’t be more than what I am? How many hours have I lay here, Trying to forget a world that still continues? And each moment that’s slipped From my life into a dream Takes me further away From the me that I have seen I can’t fly And I can’t begin Cuz I can’t be more than what I am How can I rise From this life that I’m in, If I can’t be more than what I am? Give me truth and life with meaning Give me true words that I believe, that I believe (Singing, singing, wordless music, empty lullabies Singing, singing, wordless music, empty lullabies) I can’t fly And I can’t begin Cuz I can’t be more than what I am How can I rise From this life that I’m in, If I can’t be more than what I am?
