Resilience

lyrics

do you hear them a'comin?
their voice on the wind
they've locked eyes upon me
look there, it's my kin

oh bring me some shelter
a cloak, lord, will do
for the skies they have opened
and i'm seen in the moon

hold on, hold on, hold on, my boy

the many, they have grabbed me
and shook out my green
then, hell, what the use is
if money ain't the thing?

did you give me the ruler
to smack off my sin?
my color ain't turning
my skin ain't so thin

hold on, hold on, hold on, my boy

if you leave me asunder
and take away my pride
this ditch that i'm digging
i'll make double-wide

so come on deliverance
come on with crew
i'm sitting on aces
and i'm gunning for you

hold on, hold on, hold on, my boy
