It wasn't my decision, I was a victim of circumstance
it wasn't right, I knew I never had a chance
my anger grew so fucking large it almost overcame
my independence almost got lost to the violence chain

pieces of a machine called education (I was desperate), I plea for peace
victim of the cycle of intimidation (I was separate), I plea for peace

they'll find you (running hiding)
way down inside you
and I plea for peace

certain jocks sought control instead of escape
from pain inside, with stupid violence formed by hate
power and strength, but no power in their own lives
ignorance with the knowledge they're always right

    General CommentI think this song is about "power", authority and other system values that affect our lives and how "authorized" people are using that power to satisfy themselves while they are simply weak and passive in their own lives. I think this was my first Op Ivy song, thus I love it.
