Our Castle

You throw everything in derange,
Flipping everything upside down.
Do you know that your behavior is strange?
You donít get to wear the crown
Like youíre the king. I donít always have to obey
And listen to you.
I try to disregard what you say.
Iím not something you collect and accrue.
This is how things get messed up
And complicated.
Itís time for you to wake up.
You canít be completely sated
If youíre unhappy and confused.
Get out of that haze and realize
That youíre not completely bruised.
You donít have control over the skies.
I donít have control over them either.
Let go of your ego and pride.
Itís okay to take a breather.
Let everything subside.
Your ego shouldnít be that damaged.
Donít let anybody tell you canít be weak.
Everything can be managed.
You can scream from the top of that peak.
You canít always be the man.
Let me be the man too. I am able
To handle it too. Donít be a caveman.
Letís get past that fable.
Donít be my prince or white horse.
Be my equal and level partner.
Be a strong force.
Thereís no need to always be my armor.
I can protect myself just fine.
I need someone to fight alongside me.
Walk with me along the line.
I donít want you to flee.
Donít lean on me too much.
I wonít always be around
To be used like a crutch.
Weíre bound
To eventually not need each other
But for now Iíll take it all.
The need to smother
Is no longer relevant. The fall
Is no longer worth it.
Everything feels like a puzzle.
Everything fits in bit by bit.
We could always let things frizzle
But that disturbs the pace we set.
I donít want to lose anything
And I donít want to lose a bet.
Me and you Ė weíre both a queen and king.
