I awoke Beneath you Sweet afterglow In full bloom I see The whole of you The darkness clouds But I can peer through The Whole World Moves Within You You are the shadow But I am so cunning Encircling your walls Ceasing the flooding I see The whole of you The darkness clouds But I can peer through The Whole World Moves Within You
2.
It’s justice we seek No justice, no peace The list becomes long Of those that cannot breathe We won’t stop We can’t stop This cannot be tamed This has gone on too long And now the levees break Justice calls to us At an alarming rate We won’t stop We can’t stop This cannot be tamed This rage has been building We are all to blame Now’s the time to fight The day is growing young Their names shall burn on every tongue Say their names
3.
I will write My whole name Upon your tongue Scratch deep for blood It fills your throat Just like the sound Of when you come In you I drown (Chorus) Your love is god Your mind is god Your smell is god Your cunt is god Your fingers reach So deep inside I jerk so sweet Nowhere to hide You fill me up With all of you Worship me now Your aim is true (Chorus) Your love is god Your mind is god Your smell is god Your cunt is god
4.
Queerness pleads Lost in the void Carve out space Try to thrive Push and shove Pull myself up From the ashes Fill my own cup (Chorus) I want to Move from survival No need to Be my own rival Portions of this Portions of that There’s no space That truly fits Can’t we Create something better Bend the light and Slash at the tether (Chorus) I want to Move from survival No need to Be my own rival
5.
What if I walked through that door And burned this whole city down Because I can’t look anymore without Without breaking down So much grief That I weep Time to tear it apart Being meek is the law When you’re not on the line Don’t you realize that There is no they Just us, just us Don’t you realize that There is no they Just us, just us Breeze through With no thought Ignore Keep your eyes shut tight Acquiesce then Forget And walk on through Stay blind Have you Ever thought to view Yourself In the blinding light We are flawed We’re all robbed I beg of you Just open your eyes Don’t you realize that There is no they Just us, just us Don’t you realize that There is no they Just us, just us All wanting the same things Freedom, peace, beauty All wanting the same fucking things Freedom, peace, and beauty No they Only us Just us Just us No they Only us Just us Just us That is all we have Just us Just us That is all there is Just us Just us
