Kali’s Song

I hide a million years ’til I find you
Look at what you do on my grounds
I’ll drop my veil for your eyes
So you can watch me dance for you
I rise once your swords have been dropped down
I move my curves like mountains to the sky
I’ll dance you ’til your final breath
‘Cause every heart that lives must learn a thousand deaths
And watch me dance
I came from earth
I came from sky
And in love I return
Watch me rise
You two-handed monsters
I’m rotation of four arms
See them raised in opposition
Not enough wind in your lungs
For the waves I got envisioned
See before this earth got round
It was flat beneath my feet
And I flipped it like a coin
Where my twenty fingers meet
Now I could split my tongue as I speak
My words turn into blades
You’re surprised at my reaction
‘Cause you’re used to getting away
With invading what’s not yours
Terror that breaks down doors and
God forbid I come off as a hysterical omen
The thing you’d call any woman
All this time, infiltrated
Into my own home was him
All this time, indoctrinated
Into my own light was him
All this time infiltrated
Into my own faith was guilt
All this time indoctrinated
Into my own light was him
But every heart must learn
And watch me dance
I came from earth
I came from sky
And in love I return
Watch me rise
I will dance for you, I’ll dance for your eyes
In all my rage, all my light
I will rise
