i was four years old when they tried to test my iq
they showed me a picture of 3 oranges and a pear
they asked me, which one is different and does not belong?
they taught me different is wrong
but when i was 13 years old i woke up one morning
thighs covered in blood like a war like a warning
that i live in a breakable takeable body
an ever increasingly valuable body
that a woman had come in the night to replace me...
deface me...
see, my body is borrowed, i got it on loan
for the time in between my mom and some maggots
i don't need anyone to hold me, i can hold my own
i got highways for stretchmarks, see where i've grown
i sing sometimes like my life is at stake
