Collecting under control

Man who needed control told me about
How he started collecting little toys that came
Came with cereal and it wasn’t even his favorite one
He just needed them all because it’s the way it has to be

Man who needed control told me about
How he started listening to music and buy CD’s
Music that wouldn’t all turn out to be what he really likes
But he’d still store it alphabetically coz all music’s great

Man who needed control told me about
How he’d have things with girls and such
And how sometimes he felt nothing but went on with it
Because in life you just need to collect this sort of memories

He’s a boy but as I’ve been listening
All I saw was a middle age man
Collecting just the same thinking how he grew
Collecting under control

Man who needed control told me about
How he started creating art out of things within him
And things around him and he’d keep a list of ‘em
No matter how good or bad they were as long as his

Man who needed control put a gun on me
Said I should give all my stuff on his list and I’ll live
There was a list of zodiac text there as well
An excuse for an argument or a proof of it being ok
