Control more or less not in a good way.
When I try to sing
You tell me to shut up
When I try to dance
You tell me to sit down

When you sing
The world listens
When you dance
The world moves

When I speak
You quiet me down
When I try to walk
You pull me to a stop

When you speak
The world hears
When you walk
The world follows

When I try to yell
You silence me
When I try to run
You catch me

When you yell
The world cries
When you run
The world stops

When I am silent
You whisper
When I am alone
You knock

When you are silent
The world panics
When you are alone
The world knocks
