I am capable
of much more than you thought
Not quite as gullible
There’s one I never bought
For a while I left it up to you
to lock up and rake the walk
I cooked your food
I stoked your fire
I complimented all you caught

Don’t feel the upper hand
once it’s branded on your head
 but a trainer, a leader, a deity
shouldn’t reach for you in bed
There’s a catalogue a mile long
of codes that I misread
Now I’m cursing the time I followed the road
when all the signs read DETOUR AHEAD

But this is not a game
This is not a game
I don’t want to play
I don’t want to play

You rendered a shelter
Soldered the idea of me on top
And if I was prey and your trap sure,
you’d get just what you want
But prey’s just food
and prey I’m not
I’m my closet I keep rocks
And I saved them for a rainy day
Now I need the clouds to pop

But this is not a game
This is not a game
I don’t want to play
I am not your prey

They taught me silence,
obedience by violence
Cover my face but it’s hot in here
Light is the root of your selfish fear
I’m learning, I’m driving
I’m moving, you’re dying

This is not a game
I don’t want to play
