Pull Strings

Never free

Indoctrinated into our beliefs

What is right and wrong

Who is good and evil

What is expected of me

Make the Gods happy and your parents proud

From the moment we could think

We were taught not to think for ourselves

Critical thinking you’ll never need it

Every decision already made

It was decided upon by our beliefs

Now we band together to cancel anything that doesn’t agree

Blame everyone for the world’s problems

But if we stripped away everything we were told

What would be left behind that is truly us?
