They’re always right and never wrong,
just nod your head and play along.
If you don’t do it quite their way,
your life will suck, they’ll make you pay.
They have excuses for their acts,
belittles with just half the facts.
You never can live up to par,
they’ll hold you down – you won’t get far.
You go wherever they dictate,
you are their slave ’cause that’s your fate.
Your life they rule, they take control,
excel themselves is their main goal.
They make you feel you’re inching tall.
Embarrassing you is their call.
They’ll never feel true love inside
’cause empathy they can’t abide.
The most important one around,
so arrogant, they’ll stand their ground.
They won’t care if you live or die,
and soon you’ll just refuse to try.
Demands their needs come first all times.
Do they care? No, they don’t give a dime.
To find a rock, not just a stone,
to shield yourself to be alone.
Attention, admiration is
what they must have, they’re their own star.
They’ll rule your soul when they are done –
advice to you is just to run.
