Every day,
Every night,
You're taken advantage of.
Manipulated every step.

Like a stringed mannequin,
You move when you are told.
Walk where your master directs,
Never missing a beat.

The life you live
Is not of your own.
You live what people want you to,
But this ends now.

I'm here
With the scissors
To cut the strings
And set you free.

I've stolen the key
To open your cage.
And I can see
It's rusted with age.

Will it still fit?
If it does,
Will you come?

Come with me,
To escape this tragedy?
I don't know where in the hell this came from.

P cool independence is always a good thing. Sorry but I have to say the word is marionette.

Thanks. :)
And while I see where you're coming from, I think "stringged mannequin" works a little better, because while a marionette is a stringged puppet, a mannequin is a person-sized model, and I was going for a sort of underlying slavery thing.

Fair enough it's still nice work.
