The Student

 

Take me in.

Rescue me.

I’ll believe

anything.

Tell me something

that I didn’t know

to be true,

I’ll believe you.

 

Give me a reason

to fight

and I’ll go

to the line

and I’ll die

for you,

just like I

am supposed to.

 

Tell me

what you

want me to be.

I could be

anything.

Be careful

when you

tell me

what to do,

or who to be.

You’re giving me

my identity.

 

One day

I just might

turn what

you gave me

back on you.

If you lied

I’ll find out

the truth.

 

I’ll make

you pay

for every

crime

you made

me commit

in your name.

Wouldn’t it be

a shame

if things went

that way?
