Nobody's Pawn

The Story
Stag has had a dream about reuniting with Flower, but he refuses to be seduced by the idea and proclaims he will not be her pawn. Flower rails against control, by the gods, goddesses and Stag, and declares she will not be anyone's puppet. Hermes replies that she has acted of her own will and refuses to accept any blame for her actions.

Last night, I dreamed of you
Sometimes I might, but I donít want to
I donít want you, creeping into my head
I didnít invite you, back into my bed
I dreamed of the two of us, getting back together again
Even though you shattered my trust, like a rose in liquid nitrogen
I refuse, to be your pawn
I refuse, and Iím glad youíre gone

I refuse to be a pawn of the gods
I will be free, I don't need your nods
I refuse, to be your pet
I refuse, to be your marionette
Aphrodite and Pan, Hermes, Demeter, and Hestia
Stag and the Boogie Man, any and all of the rest of ya
I refuse, to let you call the shots
I refuse, to be one of your robots

all we told, is all we see
there's no control, to our prophesy
we merely talk, to light your way
the path you walk, we can not say
every step along the way, has been of your own choosing
soon youíll have to say, farewell to what youíre losing
when you choose, you stake your claim
and we refuse, to take your blame
