Put it all on a postcard
Get it off in the mail
Get a six page letter
Systems always fail

Out on good behavior
Carries the scars
Smock on the sender
Left behind bars

Laugh at the camera
Shadows with the light
Addresses the pages
You I don't think she likes

She looks and she talks and she acts like
Her parents conditioned her to
She said she'd hold on no longer

It's not time now
Can't they wait until she's older
'Cause the right thing
To take this weight down off her shoulder

Muzzled by militia
Conservative kind
We're just here to help you, redirect your mind

They push and they pull and they hurt like
The Tether conditioned them to
Mediocrity's found it's servants

It's not time now
Can't they wait until she's older
'Cause the right thing
To take this weight down off her shoulder

These years later
Faithfully agree
It looks inside the house
God, how I lost from the street

And they look and they talk and they act like
Her parents conditioned them to
Will she'd hold it together?
Will she?

It's not time now
Can't they wait until she's older
'Cause the right thing
To take this weight down off her shoulder

It's not time now
Can't they wait until she's older
'Cause the right thing
Is to lay with her and hold her
