lyrics

Autonomy

Verse 1
Look at this place, what a mess
For each and every one of you I know what's best
I can tell you what you need n satisfy your greed
I'll be nice, I'll be nice, yes indeed.

Verse 2
When all is in order, when all is in place
When the tv screens have burned a hole right into your face
When you didn't read the fine print on the back of the bill
You didn't think you'd meet me,
But you will.

Pre
And I can squash your soul down to any shape I like
You'll be too pre-occupied to realise

Chorus
And if you would dare to stray outta line
Off with your head, out with your mind
You're picking holes in my design
So dont complain, don't whine
This was your idea not mine
You gave your consent
When you didn't decline

Verse 3
Did I turn into something that you didn't intend
Did I turn into something you're unable to mend
You seemed indifferent and I can tell coz it shows
So I took your autonomy out from under your nose

Pre

Chorus
