Made Of What You Say Part 2
Author: Shan


Youíre making it sound like you knew me before I was in the womb
Is this free tarot reading? If so, if I get married, who will be my groom?
Are you saying that your words formed WHO I am today?
Break it down. Explain the meaning behind Iím made of what you say.
Your text didnít come together and form my limbs or my body parts
I never heard of such talk. Dude, youíre like way off the chart.
I make my own decisions, I make my own choices
I may not be done expressing my view but just as long as I voiced it

You arenít a supernatural being, so how am I yours?
You arenít the one who is able to open and shut doors
You arenít alpha and omega, the beginning and the end
You arenít the first and the last, you arenít the MAN among men
You didnít make me so you canít break me
To see you go all high and mighty on me, disturbs me greatly
Like two rams, I donít care if we have to bump heads
Iím not the one at fault here. You shouldíve taken your meds.
You can make demands and give orders until you sweat
Youíll get the hint after youíve realized your face is all wet

I hear you name every mistake that Iíve made, it's your game,
I see your aim is to never let me forget Iím not going your way,
I hold no regrets, so remember whatís said as I walk away,
Iím gunna make it, Iím not made of what you say, if you think life is over-rated,
to me it's all the same, but I pace it, I take it as it comes to past,
I never hold a moment, knowing none of them will last

I mean, come on man. Worry about you, I can take care of me.
Youíve got enough issues of your own to keep yourself busy
You donít see me meddling with your life do you?
And donít shake your head yes, because you know whatís true
You try so hard to slow me down and have my view obstructed
My life was going smooth until you attempted to interrupt it
But the only time youíll get to compose my life is in your dreams
I used to stomach your words until you took them to the extreme
Now I gotta retort, now I gotta have the last say so
You shook the good girl outta me, therefore, absent is my halo
