Trouble Child - Joni Mitchell

    Up in a sterilized room
    Where they let you be lazy
    Knowing your attitude's all wrong
    And you got to change
    And that's not easy
    Dragon shining with all values known
    Dazzling you-keeping you from your own
    Where is the lion in you to defy him
    When you're this weak
    And this spacey...

    So what are you going to do about it
    You can't live life and you can't leave it
    Advice and religion-you can't take it
    You can't seem to believe it
    The peacock is afraid to parade
    You're under the thumb of the maid
    You really can't give love in this condition
    Still you know how you need it

    They open and close you
    Then they talk like they know you
    They don't know you
    They're friends and they're foes too
    Trouble child
    Breaking like the waves at Malibu

    So why does it come as such a shock
    To know you really have no one
    Only a river of changing faces
    Looking for an ocean
    They trickle through your leaky plans
    Another dream over the dam
    And you're lying in some room
    Feeling like your right to be human
    Is going over too
    Well some are going to knock you
    And some'll try to clock you
    You know it's really hard
    To talk sense to you
    Trouble child
    Breaking like the waves at Malibu
