Sister

lyrics

You are black and blue
Cut and bruised
But just beneath
Your skin and teeth
You are made of stars
Not these battle scars

In pre-dawn light
Stand and fight
I see it now
Your furrowed brow
Oh, the sweat it breaks
Do not hesitate

Sister I am sure
When you hit that floor
You are going to set their hearts on fire

Sister I am sure
They'll take more and more
But never stop you
Never break you down

When they cry victory
Stand with me
Just beneath
Our skin and teeth
We are made of stars
We are made of stars

And as the morning breaks
I swear I'll hold on I won't let you drown

And on each broken bone
I swear I'll rage until my lungs give out

And as the ground we stand on shifts and changes I will pull you out

Against the rising tide we will find hope we will find solid ground

Like a bird you'll soar
Away from all
That misery
You will be
Home at last
And free
