new song: “bulldozer”

bulldozer – music and lyrics by Colleen O’Connor

lyrics:
When you criticized me so many times
I defended myself; mistaken was I.
I didn’t know that by planting my feet
I would get in the way of a heartless machine

Bulldozer,
You ran over my feelings again
still you wonder why I won’t come any closer
I won’t stand in your path anymore.

You’ve given me grief for not being like you
as if you’re the standard I should hold myself to.
If anyone’s character should be under the scope
it’s clear to me now, it’s got to be yours.

My perceived failures you always fed off -
each time I fell down, you returned to the trough.
I’ll never get just why it should be
that you feel better when the sky’s falling on me.

Bulldozer,
You ran over my feelings again
and you wonder why I won’t come any closer.
I won’t stand in your path
I won’t stand in your path
I won’t stand in your path anymore.
