lyrics

Did you expect me to sit on a shelf?
A Christmas gift, do not open 'til the 25th
Wrapped in bow and chain, a brand new toy
Waiting to be broken in
And once revealed, a wind up doll, spinning on and on and on...

Watch out! I'm the girl your mother warned you about
Watch out! I'm the girl your preacher wants to cast out
Watch out! Here I am you'd better run!

Is my body my only ticket to success
Can't you see past my skin to the mind within
Am I beautiful or am I brilliant
Would it shake your world if you saw me as both
What are you afraid of? Why do you see me as a threat?

You shame me for my autonomy
You blame me for his lack of control
You hush me for speaking my mind
You blush for me breaking the mold
Do you fear a loss of power because of how you treat the meek?

In my weakness you are strong
In my virtue you have no vice
In my darkness you are light
Father, father, forgive me. I have sinned.
