Earth's Daughter

Remind me

 

Tell me what I am

Tell me what you think I should be

I want to hear it

Remind me

 

Just ‘cause I’m female

I just shouldn’t be here

On this land

Hands in the earth

Breathing the air

Smelling the grass

 

Remind me why I can’t

Tell me why I shouldn’t

I belong in the house

The kitchen

Inside

I belong inside

 

I run through the field

And I listen

The cows tell me otherwise

They tell me the truth

That you’re lying

I belong here

 

Remind me

Who says I shouldn’t

Besides you?

You really think I care?

Did God say?

I doubt it

 

I scream it

I feel it

The water, the dirt, the sweat

When I bleed, I bleed earth

I’m a part of this

Remind me

 

A longer day

They tell me I can’t

I’ll burn out, I’m weak

Ha, you wish it

You wish I’d give up

But I won’t

 

Let me remind you

I farm

I grow

I make earth

I am Demeter

Remember?
