I trace my mother’s name
Back to her father’s father
We are what we make
Still, I can’t help but long for
A word, a label for her strength
A title void of someone’s claim
You’ve always made your way
Ownerless beast, wild mustang

I feel two eyes on me
My body knows the routine
Weave through the herd quickly
And with each step I’m wondering
How fast can I walk before I run?
Can I make the light at Norris?
Check my reflection to see
That shadow still behind me

This fever radiates
With chilling repetition
See how it escalates
To this, to our existence
Little boys who do bad things
Grow up to win the country
And the girls they tried to break
Get up and keep on running

Mankind, you’re not that kind

Come on, run circles round em
