Occupy Your Own Mind

When he was in school they told him he could be anything
even the President of these United States
one day he realized this was a lie
he never got over it or other lies they told him
confusion blinded him
empty words were ringing
so he ran fast and straight to nowhere

occupy your own mind
take it back, take it back
don't believe the lies
no matter who told them

when she was a girl they told her
certain things she couldn't be
she dreamed about biology
but believed what she was told
at 65, retired
being a grandma was
the one thing she could have and hold

occupy your own mind
take it back, take it back
don't believe the lies
no matter who told them

we lie to our children
we pretend and we amend
then we wonder why they struggle
we wonder why they doubt
so many deceptions we could do without
if we just had the courage to be real

occupy your own mind
take it back, take it back
don't believe the lies
no matter who told them
