My Kind of Control

I am the dominatrix who doesn't want to have to tell you what to do
I expect you to already know what I want

control,  kind.

Let the Wind Control the Waves

The music in my mind, is not the song they like.
They want to change the tune, just for their delight.

Crazy is what they'd call me, but I would not deny,
I love the way I am, no that is not a lie.

The ones dressed in white, and the others dressed in blue,
They tell you that they'll help, but what can they do?

Slip a pill down your throat, put a smile on your face,
Make sure to always accept a warm, loving embrace.

They can't make the shadows go away, because you need the sun in your life,
Just like how you can't rid of kitchen appliances; a steak needs a sharp knife.

So instead they'll numb your senses, so you'll never feel the pain,
I've never heard of something quite this inhumane.

Keep me away from there, they'll never let me out.
I will fight against my will, don't even try to doubt.

Just let me be, I'll find a way, to live another day,
Because I will refuse to eat hospital food on a little dusty tray.

Let me sing my song, you can listen if you please,
But do not stop the track, unless I start to sound like Lise.

control,  waves,  wind.

Consistency Vs. Control

Inhale, exhale.
Sing to the small dot in your head.
Keep your diaphragm expanded.
Your body is your cello. Use the space for resonance.
Keep your throat dilated.
Small breaths for long notes.
Constant vibrato, but no shaking.
Approach the high notes from on top.
Consistency of technique.
Empathize, but not too much.
Reveal, but don't show off.
Control of heart.


Empathize with your own story
Applied to the music you sing.
Reveal the love, the pain, the laughter, the rage, the angst.
But don't let it go wild.

No one likes a show off.

All about consistency.
All about control.

consistency,  control.

Control Freak

Does the pettiness
Of my silence
Affect you
So badly

Do you expect
By default
An adjustment
To your actions

Are you quick
To call me out
On my shortcomings
But blind to yours

Can you hear
Only the sound
Of your voice
And deaf to
The sound of mine

Do you believe
That this control
Is craved and
Makes you
A saviour

Can't you see
That your insecurities
Are laughing
So loudly
At your ego

control,  freak.

Control Freak

Losing control
Sucking in sin
In amber shot glasses, beer glasses,
Goblets red like blood and twinkling in the fire

I try not to mind it
I love him and he just turned twenty one
The age of no more
I try, I promise I do

But I watch a woman drink herself to death
And it occurs to me that I cannot see
The difference
Between out of control and completely sober

It has gotten to the point where I see horrible fires at beer commercials, lighting them all up, eating away their sin in explosive technicolor
And I want to hurt the woman in the Spirits Store
Even if she has done nothing wrong
But sell my mother the evil
No, it's not actually evil,
But still, I want to choke the life out of her body and keep squeezing
Until I feel vertebrae pop
Red grapes in my hands
Will you partake of that wine?
The pleasure is still there, a kick of adrenaline.
Will you partake?
My sin, though worse than yours, is still sin
Waste not, my friends
Suck it in like rats
And I will fall upon you like an avenging angel, reaping

But then I realize
That's crazy.
That's unreasonable.
I should just go to bed.

control,  freak.

Final Control

I feel the burn in the top of my mouth
Pellets tear puncture and perforate
They open my mind and the thoughts pour out
And fill my mouth with warm liquid salt

Lead balls race to the deepest parts
They find the obliterate the memories
They erase them, destroy the fear
Bringing peace the silence of fresh snow

Astronauts exit my skull pulling hopes and dreams
With everything I ever could have been, gone
I fall to the floor a thread unraveled at the seam
And white light covers my eyes, a blizzard of lost ambition

control,  final.

Control Freak

"You're a control freak" you yell at me.

When all I am looking for is some sort of consistency

You're right though, I only like what i can't control

Maybe that's why I have good grade, but maybe that is also why I stick my fingers down my throat

control,  freak.

It takes a lot of courage to admit that maybe you do lack control

I have always been one
To take one too many
Just to see what would happen,
Just to watch the flames grow,
And warm the abyss i felt.

To wake me up.

But maybe i was diving into a deeper sleep;
A subconscious indefinite slumber;
A mad, pointless cycle of irresponsible affairs
I gave myself excuse after excuse for.

Because it was easier
To pick up a bottle,
To swallow a pill,
To rip petals off a flower,

Than to admit defeat.

-e. s

admit,  control,  courage,  lack,  lot,  takes.
