lyrics

Only when we own
every paper, every stone,
will we find out
what they are there for
will we find out
what we are here for

And if nothing we should find
to learn from the things we mined,
they'll have taught us
what they are there for
they'll have taught us
what we are here for

Men condescending talk about their mother
knowing full well the kinds of things they've done to her.

Over dirty dead
bodies buckled bruised and headless
do we carve out our initials
to remind us what our names are.

Men condescending talk about their mother
knowing full well the kinds of things they've done to her.
As if her deafness were some sort of catalyst
for the incisions they will place upon her wrists.

And if nothing we should find
to learn from what should remind us
and if nothing we should find,
they'll have taught us.

They'll have taught us.
