Marionette

This song is by 12 Rods and appears on the album Separation Anxieties (2000).

A disposable playtoy
And you know how to move me
(I'm a marionette, I'm a marionette)
Hanging from threads I can't see
(I'm a marionette, I'm a marionette)
You cut my strings
And we'll see what freedom brings
Am I a casualty when I'm away from you

Fucked up but with nowhere to go
(I'm a marionette, I'm a marionette)
I'm slack from my head to my toe
(I'm a marionette, I'm a marionette)
A quick goodbye
Doesn't give me time to cry
I'm just a slumping doll with nothing else to do

A black box you're calling my home
(I'm a marionette, I'm a marionette)
The ken doll won't leave me alone
(I'm a marionette, I'm a marionette)
He cut me down to size
And it opened up my eyes
I gotta take the power back away from you

Don't wanna be a marionette
Not made to be a marionette
Don't wanna be a puppeteer's pet
But I'm a marionette 'cause I'm in love with you

Gonna wish upon a star
Tell me who the hell I are
(I'm a marionette like you)

Shake that wooden cross
And remind me that you are the boss
So I'll do a little dance designed by you

Fucked up but with nowhere to go
(I'm a marionette, I'm a marionette)
I'm slack from my head to my toe
(I'm a marionette, I'm a marionette)
A quick goodbye
Doesn't give me time to cry
I'm just a slumping doll with nothing else to do

A black box you're calling my home
(I'm a marionette, I'm a marionette)
The bitch dolls won't leave me alone
(I'm a marionette, I'm a marionette)
They cut me down to size
And it opened up my eyes
I gotta take the power back away from you
