Battle Lines

Words/Music © by Deborah Baudoin

Angry young woman, you know what you are.
“Lost and forgotten,” she sighs.
Angry young daughter, the universe turns,
Night falls, and another day dies.

Faith, little sister, tomorrow will come.
The Prophets have heard, and they smile.
The cruelest of demons lurks here in our hearts,
Our innocence lasts but a while.

Pray, little sister, and follow your heart.
Pray for the patience you lack.
The Prophets have spoken; the Prophets have called.
Your heroes can never come back.

Angry young woman, you know what you are.
“Lost and forgotten,” she sighs.
Angry young daughter, the universe turns,
Night falls, and another day dies.

Fight, little hero, the monsters inside.
Fight to the death, if you will.
Be careful, my daughter, my angry young child.
It’s only yourself that you kill.

Fight for the future and fight for the past.
Fight for the vision to see
All of the answers you search for in vain,
All of the things you must be.

Foolish young woman, you know what you are--
The future, the hope and the prize.
All in its measure, the universe turns.
Night falls, and another day dies.
