Armor

Album: Amidst the Chaos (2018)
  • Let it begin, let Adam in
    Step one: original sin
    Underneath the leaves, Adam found Eve
    Both of them found something sweet under the apple tree
    Then it was over, roads divide
    Step two: learning how to lie
    Let me ask a question to present day
    How the hell did Eve end up with all the damn blame?
    All the damn blame

    To all the dirty looks, the kitty cat calls
    To the ones who try and throw us up against the back walls
    Let me tell you something you'll understand
    Only the little boys tell you they're a big man
    To all my sisters and all our friends
    We have to thank them, please
    Strength means blessed with an enemy

    All my, my, my, my armor comes from you
    You make me try, try, try, try harder
    Oh, that's all I ever do, ever do
    Oh, no no, my, my, my, my armor comes from you
    You make me stronger, stronger
    Now, hand me my armor
    (Hand me my armor, hand me my armor)

    Step three: I see
    The unforgettable, incredible ones who came before me
    Brought poetry, brought science
    Sowed quiet seeds of self-reliance
    Bloomed in me, so here I am
    You think I am high and mighty, mister?
    Wait 'til you meet my little sister

    All my, my, my, my armor comes from you
    You make me try, try, try, try harder
    Oh, that's all I ever do, ever do
    Oh, no no, my, my, my, my armor comes from you
    You make me stronger, stronger
    Now, hand me my armor

    What you didn't do to bury me
    But you didn't know I was a goddamn seed
    You don't scare me, I am of the earth
    So tired of your empire
    Blind men only set the world on fire
    Sad you can't see it
    You brought the flame, here comes the phoenix
    You make me try harder
    Oh, it's all I ever do, ever do
    Oh, no no, my, my, my, my armor comes from you
    You make me stronger, stronger
    Hand me my armor

    All my, my, my, my armor comes from you
    You make me try, try, try, try harder
    Oh, that's all I ever do, ever do
    Oh, no no, my, my, my, my armor comes from you
    You make me stronger, stronger
    Hand me my armor

    (Hand me my armor, hand me my armor)
    (Hand me my armor, hand me my armor)
    Hand me my armor, hand me my armor
    Hand me my armor, hand me my armorWriter/s: Sara Bareilles
