Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

Media prompts really get my brain running! Trying to touch upon the concept behind 'They'.
Set me up, tell me what to do.
It's not that I don't know
or I can't figure it out,
But you'll judge me if do it wrong
and that's what I don't want.

Set me up, tell me all the rules.
Don't tell me why they're there,
or how they are logically sound.
I understand that the're just there
and we must put up with them for the world.

Set me up; what's ethically right?
Set me up, I'm not looking for a fight,
Set me up for the screwed up world,
Make me numb like the rest of us.

I'm sorry, did I say too much?
I'm sorry, please don't kill me.
There's no point, I'm a goner now.
Don't you make my mistakes,
and abide by this glorious world.
