Control

Don't you mess,
With a little girl's dream,
'Cause she's liable to grow up
Mean.

Surprise you to find that I'm laughing?
You thought that you'd find me in tears.
You thought I'd be crawling,
The walls like a tiny mosquito,
And trembling in fear.

Well, you may be king for the moment,
But I am queen understand,
And I've got your pawns and your bishops and castles
All in the palm of my hand.

While you were looking the other way,
While you had your eyes closed,
While you were licking your lips,
'Cause I was miserable,
While you were selling your soul
While you were tearing a hole in me.

Don't you mess,
With a little girl's dream,
'Cause she's liable to grow up
Mean.

I am beginning to feel good,
Watching you squirm in your shoes,
A small bead of sweat on your brow,
And a growl in your belly.
You're scared to let me through,
You thought you could keep me from loving,
You thought you could feed on my soul,
But while you were busy destroying my life,
What was half in my has become whole.

While you were looking the other way,
While you had your eyes closed,
While you were licking your lips,
'Cause I was miserable,
While you were selling your soul
While you were tearing a hole in me.

I was gaining control,
I have taken control.

Come a little closer,
Let me look at you.
I gave you the benefit of doubt, it's true,
But keep in mind my darling,
Not every saint is a fool.
