disclaimer lyrics – deviates

for too long i’ve played it safe
did everything that you wanted me to do for you
i held my tongue closed my eyes
did everything that a good boy supposed to do but i

in the blur of right and wrong
i found a voice that describes you the best
mightier than one thousand swords
it calms the storm it creates and reshapes my face.

my disclaimer.
to say what i want i need to find a word that doesn’t exist.
i can be a master or a slave,
wear one thousand different faces you’d never resist.
tell me to say what i want to and then you pin it on me.
expected to pay for what i can’t do.
then you tell me it’s free but that i’ll never be.

maybe i made a mistake saying everything i wanted to.
you’ve got your finger pointed straight at me.
i hop you hear these words because i’m talking to you,
and i wasted my time, my breath, and everything that i gave to you.
freedoms fulfilled take their toll.
show me the one and only word that describes you,

tell me to say what i want to and then you pin it on me.
expected to pay for what i can’t do.
then you tell me it’s free but that i’ll never be.

you’re quick to judge;
i’m serving my sentence.
every word i write is evidence.
forgive me for my honesty.
i can’t learn to choke on these words and i won’t,
then you pin it on me.

disclaimer. i’ll say what i want
complaint, you add your name to the list.
if i can find the words you will,
i’ve got nothing to hide and no one to impress.

tell me to say what i want to and then you pin it on me.
expected to pay for what i can’t do.
then you tell me it’s free but that i’ll never be.

you’re quick to judge;
i’m serving my sentence.
every word i write is evidence.
forgive me for my honesty.
i can’t learn to choke on these words and i won’t,
then you pin it on me.
