Unhealthy Expectations

This song was created for Game of Bands round 192 : "Music of the 2030s"

Lyrics:

[Verse]

When you pull the leash, I start to choke
When I breathe, you lash out unprovoked
When it starts, I don’t know how to cope
When it starts, you don’t know how to stop.

Is that what's been awaiting down the road
Was it all the same decades ago
Did they force their judgement down your throat
Did you find a way to heal the hurt

[Pre-Chorus]

Do you have to scare me with inevitable crises?
Do you have to punish me for stepping out of line?
Do I have to justify your selfish sacrifices?
Tell me, can you be around me every day

[Chorus]

and not
Blame me for every error since creation
Shame me, and call it miscommunication

[Verse]

You pretend to speak for all the kids
Then you go and whip me til I bleed
There must be something behind your ribs
But I start to choke when you pull the leash

[Pre-Chorus]

Do we really need dark sarcasm in the classroom?
Do you have to punish me for stepping out of line?
Do I have to justify your selfish sacrifices?
Tell me, can you be around me every day

[Chorus]

and not
Blame me for every error since creation
Shame me, and call it miscommunication
Chain me with your unhealthy expectations
Maim me by thinly veiled accusations

[Bridge]

When I get old
I’m gonna do that too
Make sure they hurt
Take them by the hand and

[Chorus]

Chain them with my unhealthy expectations
Maim them by thinly veiled accusations
Shame them, and call it miscommunication
Blame them for every error since creation
[Exit]
