We’re like a brown paper bag Reduced, reused, recycled Becoming extinct Rolled up in lies Cheated on with plastic bags Folded like a fable With a treacherous ending There’s a hole on my side, and it’s beginning to feel ponderous
I’m like a brown paper bag Normal on the outside Suffocating on the inside Struggling to balance within I want to see who truly lies behind this paper bag I’m imperfect, all crumpled up
Reuse Reduce Recycle
“Reduced, Reused, Recycled” You’re like a brown paper bag Stern on the outside Helpless on the inside Struggling to fit in You couldn’t punch your way out of a wet paper bag You’re imperfect, with crinkles on top You’d let everyone in, excluding the leftover (me) Letting you out of the bag is harder than putting you back in
