Behind The Puppet

Recommended Posts

Hey, here's another song from me. Comments please.

Behind The Puppet

Verse 1

I see with my smile

The faded off-white chipped yellow

Wooden planks. ambiguous

Brings insane, eccentric high mellow

Melancholy hearts

Singing in the dark

As i share centerstage with my weakened soul

Chorus

Well i just want you to adore me

hear the rampant laughter

Well i just want you to ignore me

the hero they don't capture

look for me, your eyes divert

look at me, the senseless flirt

Watch the schitzophrenic suffer

Behind the puppet

Verse 2

I breathe through my back

the gaping void-like black hole

entertaining emptiness, hollow

Brings edginess: the forgotten goal

Mellifluous grins

Beckoning "begin"

As i share centerstage with my weakened soul

Chorus

Well i just want you to adore me

hear the rampant laughter

Well i just want you to ignore me

the hero they don't capture

look for me, your eyes divert

look at me, the senseless flirt

Watch the schitzophrenic suffer

Behind the puppet

Verse 3

I see with my smile

warmth doesnt reach my eyes

i breathe through my back

Via the person that i dispise

Saying all the things i wish i could say

behind the mask: my dignity fails

Chorus

Well i just want you to adore me

hear the rampant laughter

Well i just want you to ignore me

the hero they don't capture

look for me, your eyes divert

look at me, the senseless flirt

Watch the schitzophrenic suffer

Behind the puppet

behind the puppet

lies my weakened soul

Comments would be most appriciated

Great way of describing how someone can feel controlled by another. I love the usage of the puppet to show this meaning. You paint a very clear picture of what you're trying to say, even though some of the wording can go unknown to those with smaller vocabularies.

This is the only line I don't quite follow

"The faded off-white chipped yellow"

Is it off-white or is it yellow? Or is it both? To me it sounds like the smile is off-white while the chipped portions are yellow. Is that what it's saying? If so, then I did read it right.
