Never One Thing

Album: Mother Lion (2017)
  • I'm the underbelly, I am the claw
    Never one thing no, not one thing at all
    I'm a street fighter, I'm a prayer for peace
    I'm a holy roller, I'm a honey bee

    I am the truth, I am a lie
    I am the ground, I am the sky
    I am the silence, I am the call
    Never one thing no, not one thing at all

    I am hope, I am defeat
    I am broken, I am complete
    I am the grace, I am the fall
    Never one thing no, not one thing at all

    I am the beggar, I am the queen
    I am the end, I am the means
    I am the hammer, I am the wall
    Never one thing no, not one thing at all

    I am a victor, I am the loss
    I am a profit, I am the cost
    I am the salve, I am the sting
    Never, no never, no never one thing

    I am a mother, I am the child
    I am the meek, I am the wild
    I am the witch, I am the saint
    I am alive, never one thing

    I am the lion, I am the swan
    I am the bull, I am the fawn
    I am a woman, I am the ring
    I am my own, never one thing
