I won't lie

I shot you in the eye still you won't lie down and die ( jus die cos I say so) I made the rules to say what's cool but your ruse is to be cool outside the rules ( you won't listen, makes me mad) I made a nice little box just for you that you refuse to be stuffed into (quit fidgeting please) To have it my way is what I'm used to, I won't lie about that Want you to toe the line, your toe on the line is what I wish to see Do as I say, what I say is what I want you to do ( right now, jus do it right now) Be exactly who I say you are, who I want you to be is exactly who you ought to be To have it my way is what I'm used to, I won't lie about that Say only what I want you to say, I want you to voice only what I want to hear Your full on persona so overbearing often times ( really does my head in too, mind you) I need you to go ahead and tone it down a teensy wensy bit Do dilute the strength of your essence while you are on the job Your radiance just too blinding for my liking (out of my sight please) I'm gonna need you to dull your shine just a little bit Maybe you could wane that massive flame on your wick (that's the trick to try) Cos to have it my way is what I'm used to, I won't lie about that Shot your other eye out still you won't lie down and die (jus die cos I say so already!) Let me have it my way it's what I'm used to, I just won't lie about that.
