Rupert Hine – The Set Up lyrics
Set up - set up for the sake of a comfortable home
Too young - too young to take control
Mother's little weapon for when Father broke the rules
He never wanted her or me
He just wanted to be free
There's a risk and a twist
And all this from the girl you missed by minutes
On the day you were hit
Set up - every opportunity to make me like them
Set up - born into a world where I had no control
One set up leads to another
Too set up to lie to each other
And it's all been a fram
I've got to change my appearance
And get rid of the name
They did it with mirrors
They did it without pain
I was set up and held up and stuffed in a cage
Don't get up and say it was some other mother
I'm sure enough it was you that planted me
Is there anyone out there
Who can change this atmosphere
Set up - every opportunity to make me like them
Set up - born into a world where I had no control
One set up leads to another
Too set up to lie to each other
They did it with mirrors
They did it with teachers
They did it without pain
They couldn't think of a number so they gave me a name
Set up - every opportunity to make me like them
Set up - born into a world where I had no control
One set up leads to another
Too set up to lie to each other
They did it with kindness
They did it with a smile
They did it all with a licence
They did it according to the rules
They did it with good advice
They did it for some reason
They did it
Well they tried
