• I am the twisted marionette,
    The puppet in your hand
    I dance before the audience
    Upon the world's stage, I stand

    I bow when you tell me "bow"
    I move as you see best
    You shaped me, made me, taught me how
    Now you put me to the test.

    My bodies weight is held up by
    This cross that I'm nailed to
    My burden is lain upon me now
    By my life giver - you

    You treat me like your plaything
    And alas, indeed, I am
    But one day I will untie these strings
    And on my own - shall stand

    I am the twisted marionette
    But let me tell you now
    Some how, I shall free myself
    and I shall make you bow.
