The Life You Mapped Out for Me

Infinite possibilities

I find myself
Hanging out with the weirdos
And challenging the system

I didn’t end up living
The life you mapped out for me

It wasn’t me
It wasn’t even mapped out

I knew those doctors
Were fucked up back then
And I knew that I knew

But I didn’t have the voice
Or the backing
Or the role models

I ate it
They were all wrong
And I ate it

And I suffer the consequences
Because you mapped it all out for me

But it wasn’t life
You were mapping
Just some false story line
