They told us to fly

but tied our wings behind our backs.

 

They told us to go

To chase our dreams

but trapped us with their chains

 

They told us to see what’s outside the box

but built an even larger one around it.

 

They told us we were free,

Told us we controlled our own thoughts

but while we slept they filled our minds

 

They promised they were for us

but the moment we let go

The moment we trusted them to catch us

they took a step back.

 

And we fell.

 

We all hit the ground,

We all broke

 

But with us broke the chains

 

We told them we would fly

told them we would soar

 

We told them we would chase

and we caught our dreams

 

We shattered their box

 

We opened our eyes

 

We turned from them

turned to us

 

We never fell again.
