The Manifest Destiny's Childs ==> Solstice

Resources were allocated
Ready before I was even conceived
They called me Eugene
Skin preened with ancient themes
Halls decked out in social memes
I went through their routine, now I'm degreed
And an amputee
And you know what I mean
They worked hard to make me feel a select serie of story
Illuminating what I'd be tolerated to be
But I'll be who I am
Some impossibly human being

They tell me I'm part of some wave of love
Sent down from somewhere above
Oh the simplicity
Is ultimately deceiving
Cause I have roots from a home
Separated at birth from how a home is even known
And to deny these
Is at best demeaning
And as above, so below
And in all waves I find familiar frequencies betrothed
And many a heart buried deep
Under prostrate-wounded knees
I just want her to speak to me again
Through some one or some thing, she was my friend
An awakening is what she needs
Before she goes and lives out some colonizer's dream
Of me fighting me


from Eye. Runny. <​=​= Eugene & the Mythstick, released August 1, 2014
