lyrics

Well, they tried to name me. Tried to make me something that I’m not
And they tried to claim me
As if I was something that could be abused, used, and bought
And they tried to mark me. I won’t lie, they left me scarred, feeling marred
But I’m learning
I am lovely and that these here scars are telling stories of what I’m not
And what I’m becoming, and who I am
I have a name—it’s not the one you tried to hang on me and curse me damned
They can’t hang a name on me like a tag that bears a price.
I am the price. I am the price.
If you listen closely, you can hear me
In the midst of noises and a sea of voices crying out for dignity
Do you know me?
I’m your sister, brother, baby, child, faces painted in eternity
And we’re becoming. Screaming out . . . “I am.”
I have a name—it’s not the one you tried to hang on me and curse me damned
They can’t hang a name on me like a tag that bears a price.
I am the price. I am the price.
I’ve heard of roses known by any other name smelling sweet
You’ll find us buried in the thorns
We are becoming. Screaming out . . . “I am.”
We have a name—it’s not the one you tried to hang on us and curse us damned
They can’t hang a name on us like a tag that bears a price.
We are the price
