lyrics

university mentality
I walk with steel feet
on transparent boulevards
with no sleep
yo,

this is the rebirth right here,
20,000 voices and she knows no fear
Nor laugh or cry
she praise above

electrical control
this pen her crutch

read the writings on her lips

"saints are among us,
saints are among us"

I don't rock verse
I write form unflawed
appreciation of my form of drug

sweet sultry cleanse
spiritual awakening
brahman perplexed

her heart opened
and this is what she sang to me

this is your rebirth right here,
20,000 voices and you know no fear

this is our rebirth right here,
20,000 voices and we know no fear

this is your rebirth right here,
20,000 voices and we know no fear

23+
xo love bug

but in the end,
a woman must rest
regain her focus
she must become younger
recover her energy
she thinks she cannot
but she can
for the circle of woman
either mother, students, artists or activists
always closes
to fill in for those who go on rest leave
wild woman expects
that the animus will wear out on a regular basis
she is not shocked that
he falls through the door
she is not shocked when
we fall through the door

she is ready.
she will not rush us in a panic
she will pick us up and hold us (2:22)
til we regain our power again
and neither should we panic
when we use our momentum or focus

but like her,
we must calmly hold the idea
and be with it for a while

whether our focus
is on
self-development,
world issues,
or relationships
- doesn't matter

the animus will wear down
it is not a matter of if,
it is a matter of when.

for women, it is best that they understand this
at the onset of an endeavor
for women tend to get surprised by fatigue

then they wail,
they mutter,
they whisper about failure,
inadequacy, and such.

but no -

this losing of energy
is as it is
-- it is nature.

this is the rebirth right here,
and we don't know fear.
