someone tells you to jump
you say how high
someone tells you to run
you say how fast
someone tells you to smoke
you say how many
someone tells you to talk
you say when
someone tells you to dance
you say which way
someone tells you to obey
you say yes with no hesitation
someone tells you that you are no good
you agree
this is what happens when you allow someone to imprison you
you are in jail without bars
