The nail that sticks up...

ask me why/i've never tried
to show myself to you/i'll tell you
the eyes you have don't see like mine/
glassy inward drunk and prideful/
the way you talk and walk/
shows me your only concern/
is self-possession, self-obsession
society knows/it`s not nodding

the nail that sticks up is hammered down

there`s no room at the top for us/
lower your eyes and your aspirations
freedom is being a drop in the ocean/
but you still keep a name/
when all of the big ideas/
in your tiny head/
serve no purpose but refinement/
you're misguided/
you need a guiding light/
a pillar of salt to help you find the flock

the nail that sticks up is hammered down
