Locked In

Do you remember who you were before you were told who to be?  
I canít remember the last time I was allowed to dream  
Broken hearts and broken promises; Iíve lost track of each  
This mocha leaves me feeling bitter when it should have been sweet.  

When can I pick up the pieces of my fractured psyche?  
Youíve got me fumbling in the dark like a rat in a maze  
Youíve locked me in my own mind, and threw away the key  
Yet everyone else brushes it off by saying ďsheís going through a phase.Ē  

Instead of being taught logic, I was told what to think  
Iíve got xís in my record for daring to think outside of the box  
I spoke my mind; I was recommended to a shrink  
Iíve learned to fear every time I hear the door knock.  

You donít what to be locked in my mind  
You donít want to peel back the layers of lies and secrets  
Donít say I didnít warn you when youíre horrified by what you find  
Pills are shoved down my throat to complete my treatment.
