The Anthem of Mr. Dark
The Arcadian Wild Lyrics


I never have the time to do the nothing that I want to do
I′m always rushing around being what other people want me to be
Well, the fabric of my soul is frayed and falling apart at the seams
I'm tied up and tied down by the strings of other people′s dreams

I'm starting to see that that isn't me
And my freedom isn′t free
But all I really want is some room to breathe

Someday, I′ll learn to say no
Find a way to lighten my load
People take possession of the pieces of my weary heart
I'll learn to let go, whoa-oh
And learn to say no

I′m feeling like a lion lying down behind the bars of this cage
Yea, the king of the beast is now the king of this enclosed space
Wear and tear and worry, they've been drawing their lines on my face
Oh yes, I feel a whole lot older than my chronological age, yeah

I′m starting to see that that isn't me
And my freedom isn′t free
Well, all I really want is some room to be me

Someday, I'll learn to say no
Find a way to lighten my load
People take possession of the pieces of my weary heart
I'll learn to let go, whoa-oh
And learn to say no

Give us your time and give us your money
Just lay down your body, there′s no sense in running
Now cut off your hair and put on a tie
Just do what you′re told without wondering why

Don't ask for a reason, no matter the season
Sit down and comply, ′cause we don't want no free men
We′ll say what you are, decide what you're not
You′ll go, and you'll go, and you never will stop

Someday I'll learn to say no
Find a way to lighten my load
People take possession of the pieces of my weary heart
I′ll learn to let go, whoa-oh
And learn to say-

Someday (give us your time and give us your money)
(Just lay down your body, there′s no sense in running) I'll learn to say no
(Just cut off your hair and put on a tie)
(And do what you′re told without wondering why) hey, hey

Find a way (don't ask for a reason, no matter the season)
(Sit down and comply, ′cause we don't want no free men) to lighten my load
(We′ll say what you are, decide what you're not)
(You'll go, and you′ll go, and you never will-) ha!

People take possession of the pieces of my weary heart
(People take possession of my heart)
(People take possession of my heart)
I′ll learn to let go, whoa-oh
And learn to say no

Oh-whoa, learn to say no
Oh-whoa, yeah
Learn to say no
