He tells you when, he tells you why
He tells you wherefore
What to do, how it's done
And how to be for him
It's all about control, it's all about control

You're his life, you're his strength
But he's your weakness
He knows you care, knows you give
But he couldn't care less
He fits you to his mold, chipping at you soul

It tears me up to see the way that he treats you
To see the way that he brings you down and down
He's turning you inside out

It breaks me up to see the way that you take it
To see the way that he spins you 'round and 'round
Turning you upside down

Mocking bird
Mocking bird

Afraid to leave, afraid to lose
Afraid of living
You turn to him, you turn to me
But it lies in you
It's waiting to be found, it's waiting to be found

So feel your heart, feel your pain
Feel your anger
If you fight the fear, find the words
You'll find the answer
Like a cat held upside down
You'll land feet on the ground

It tears me up to see the way that he treats you
To see the way that he brings you down and down
He's turning you inside out

It breaks me up to see the way that you take it
To see the way that he spins you 'round and 'round
Turning you upside down

Mocking bird
Mocking bird

You never know what life may bring
Trust your spirit, find your wings
Find your voice and let it sing, let it sing

It tears me up to see the way that he treats you
To see the way that he brings you down and down
He's turning you inside out

And it breaks me up to see the way that you take it
To see the way that he spins you 'round and 'round
Turning you upside down

Mocking bird
Mocking bird
