lyrics

I work hard not to believe
you wish to cause me injury
but i am tending open wounds
from when i have been wrong before

It's not for me to feel them
it's not for me to seal them
it's not for me heal them

but always taking such good care
of those who take more than their share

I'm covered in scar tissue
but i am far from numb
the wounds of my ancestors fresh
their screams still on my tongue

generations of being less
generations of making less
generations of taking less

but always taking such good care
of those who take more than their share

the violence that perpetuates
is your work to eradicate
i've decided to control my fate
to feel safe and to separate

to no longer take such good care
of those who take more than their share

I'm covered in scar tissue
but i am far from numb
the wounds of my ancestors fresh
their screams still on my tongue
