i do what i'm told
for the most part
it's alarming
lunge for the blindfold
and the tail goes
on the donkey

all for party prizes
they're just blue plastic devices
they are borderline surprises
that will break when we go home

i do what i'm told
and i'm getting aggravated
my spine has been sold
to a boy well, we traded
courage for the promise that we'll
never be so honest
as to question what's between us
we'll say 'honey you're the only one'

i'm do what i'm told
by the ticking
of a timeline
waiting to grow old
what if there is
nothing to find
it's the same but slower
the children look most like father
who remembers me much younger
we said 'honey you're the only one'
