Nothing ever changed, did it?
Your mother got her teeth fixed but still said the same things
Nothing's going to change, is it?
Your father still watches the same shows and laughs at the same jokes

And all around you hums and sings
Sits still, stands up, the phone it rings
Inside you're turning cartwheels
In there, you are alive
You press your nose against the walls
And walk the perimeter fence

You have a tight grip, at least you thought you did
You can see good in all this
But you are starting to lose focus

So tell them all your grand ideas
The ones you've been planning for all these years
These are not idle schemes
These are hopes and these are dreams

And all around you hums and sings
Sits still, stands up, the phone still rings
Inside you're turning cartwheels
In there, you are alive

You press your nose against the walls and walk the perimeter fence

The morning comes around again
And slowly lights your simple pen
A truly modern fortress
You think, "These walls will never hold us"
You press your nose against them all
And walk the perimeter fence, walk the perimeter fence
But there's no holes in this crude defence
Just tiny cracks that are acting as vents
And outside looking in - surely others like you?
