ten thousand spoons

When all you need is a knife, this is not an Alanis Morissette tribute

Are we a lost generation of our people?
Add us to equations but they’ll never make us equal
She who writes the movie owns the script and the sequel
So why ain’t the stealing of my rights made illegal?
They keep us underground working hard for the greedy
But when it’s time pay they turn around and call us needy
My crown too heavy like the Queen Nefertiti
Gimme back my pyramid, I’m trying to free Kansas City
Mixing masterminds like your name Bernie Grundman
Well I’mma keep leading like a young Harriet Tubman
You can take my wings but I’m still gonna fly
Janelle Monae, Lyrics from Q.U.E.E.N. via The Electric Lady album (via femfreq)
