Iíve got my own timeline, the history of me
Not proud of it all, not always so clear
On the whys of events or how they make sense
Sometimes Iím woven in with otherís paths
Sometimes on my own, not that that lasts
Iíve got what youíd call a mixed history.

But itís OK if you donít get an A
Iím not an open book, donít chatter all day
How could you know even a half of me
You can make things up to fill in the blanks
Just sharpen your pencil and do your best
Just write what you figure on my history test.

Itís a history test, not the test of history
Donít claim any greatness, just a little mystery
You can write what you want, Iíll tell what I can
Of a story of me where bits donít make sense
All youíre really doing is getting past the fence
The fence I put up to keep me as me.
