The Suit

A Suit of clothes
Was all I owned
Since they let me go
I've lived in it
Now I'm a picture of health
Suit and I both doing well
Which is which?
It's hard to tell, isn't it?

I'm in the Suit
Like cloth my pattern fades
The Suit stays the same
I'm in the Suit

Months pass - the Suit of clothes
Starts to take control
I grow incapable
Inside of it
The Suit deserves success
I do what it suggests
Inside the Suit I'm wrecked
No-one suspects

I'm in the Suit
Like cloth I'm worn away
The Suit stays the same
I'm in the Suit

The Suit - skilled in world affairs
The Suit - known everywhere
The Suit - Popular
I don't dare interfere
You think you talk to me
But I gaze out helplessly
There's not a thing I can do

I'm in the Suit
Now I'm just the way
I'm in the Suit
