I am a Capricorn.
Not some stupid little puppet,
Hanging by a string.
Do I really look that dumb?
That I’ll allow you to tug and pull
And dance to the beat of your drum?
Come on, let’s be adults…
Look, I’m not a little toy,
Some object that you can control.
I don’t think this is going to work.
Do I look like a side dish or a sushi roll?
No, because I’m a man with dignity,
Respect me as such.
I really fell for your charm,
A true sucker for your touch.
You almost had me,
Preyed on my emotional state.
Giving me false promises,
Of someday going out on a date.
In all my experience,
I never really had any competition.
But now that I do,
I’m facing some tough opposition.
And I’ve never been one to quit,
But after everything I’ve been through?
I’m done, I’m tired of this shit.
