This body
That's only done me wrong
That always proved weak when I needed it strong

That lays down to rest
When I need to run
That refuses to go just on

This body whose neck and shoulders are steady as thread

This body
That's only let me down
Whose head was always turned up to ten

That wasn't chosen
To be on anyone's team
Was picked last and never fought hard enough

It finally spoke out
Said: "We need to see what this is about"

Oh, body
How I have wished of you
That would look different than you do

I'm sorry
I feel apologetic
You had better things to do

You had an agenda
And I never saw that
You're growing a kid now, it's sprouting like hell now
I'm suddenly dirt

It's like finding a hidden door
In the house you always lived in
With a secret room, and it holds diamonds and pearls

You're a rock and you're the sea
You're the fox and you're the hunter
You're not less and you're not more than anything

You're your mother and your father
You're their mothers and their fathers
Let your shoulders down, you're not going to war
