Indigo Girls – Become You lyrics

I heard you sing a rebel song,
Sung it loud and all alone.
We can't afford the things you save,
We can't afford the warranty.
I see you walking in the glare
Down the county road we share.
Our southern blood, my heresy,
Damn that ol' confederacy.

It took a long time to
Become the thing I am to you.
And you won't tear it apart
Without a fight, without a heart.

I'm sorry for what you have learned,
When you feel the tables turn.
To run so hard in your race,
Now you find who set the pace.
The landed aristocracy
Exploiting all your enmity.
All your daddies fought in vain,
Leave you with the mark of Cain.

It took a long time to
Become the thing I am to you.
And you won't tear it apart
Without a fight, without a heart.
It took a long time to
Become you, become you.

The center holds, so they say.
It never held too well for me.
I won't stop short for common ground
That vilifies the trodden down.
The center held the bonded slave
For the sake of industry.
The center held the bloody hand
Of the executioner man.

It took a long time to
Become the thing I am to you.
And you won't tear it apart
Without a fight, without a heart.
It took a long time to
Become you, become you.
