a beast

i shall rise

"as i walk the desert sands
through the flames of burning lands
my feet are torn they're torn to strands
i will not thirst

as i cross the raging seas
waves are crashing over me
they drag me down they drag me down
i will not drown

they'll know my name
after the storms are passing through
they'll know my name
when they've forgotten all about you…

and i shall rise
oh well rise again and again
i shall rise
oh well rise again and again"

-from "i shall rise" by karen o
