​Autocratic

This song is by Anne-Marie Helder and appears on the album The Contact (2004).

I don't need anyone to talk to
If you plan to lend your ear
I don't need anyone to share with
I've got all my friends in here

I don't need no catalytic conversation just to 'bring me out'
I know me and that's no consolation
I don't really wanna let it out -

If I want to let you in
I will, I will
& If I want to keep you out,
I will, I will
'Cause I am the autocratic sum of my life
And I will keep my guard if I like

Well I know the games you're playing
'Cause I know I've played them too
Just a push in the right direction
And I might dish the dirt to you

I know the kindness and the caring
Masquerading as 'naive'
But no love, no earthly motivation betrays me to honesty

If I want to let you in
I will, I will
& If I want to keep you out,
I will, I will
'Cause I am the autocratic sum of my life
And I will keep my guard if I like
