"Misfit Rulers" by Ally Leedy

Why do we always forget?
What we see what we saw and what we felt
When we were younger
When we were kinder

Seems like we all have gone mad
Words of wrath on our tongues
Like shards of glass
The blood runs sideways
Ohh I see its coming my way…

But I’m not going to sit down
Not going to shut my pretty little mouth…
I’m not going to sit down
And I won’t fold my hands now
Walk in line and sit quietly in the back…. Ohh ohh… no never

And its hard to love a piece of cardboard
When you're lying in your cold bed at night
But the plastic surrounds me and
Metal impounds me
And I just want some warmth that I can call mine
To feel tonite
Ohh the warmth of skin

I’m a woman, I’m a girl, if I’m a child oh I’ll rule this world
If I’m black, or I’m brown, poor or I wear a crown, if I am foreign if Iam close, If I am quiet if I am bold, if I love women or I love men if I live on my own or with kin
Oh We're going to rule this world

Ohh We’re going to rule this world with our love
Ohh We’re going to rule this world with our love
