I am a burden, water
A whale on sand
I am a flood, the fire, the oil spill
I'm feeling scared and I am overwhelmed
And so I don my mask and finger bells

Sh-sh-sh-Shara, now, get to work
Sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-Shara, this is going to hurt
Be brave, dear one.
Be changed or be undone.
Be brave, dear one.
Be changed or be undone-
Undone.

I am the slave, I'm under house arrest
I am the beater, I am beaten for
Less than being punk and feeling anger swell
And so I don my beaded dress and finger bells

Sh-sh-sh-Shara, now, get to work
Sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-Shara, this is going to hurt
Be brave, dear one.
Be changed or be undone.
Be brave, dear one.
Be changed or be undone-
Undone.

It's so hard, It's so heavy
To be hungry, to be happy
It's so light, It's so easy
Just to be
It's so hard, It's so heavy
To be hungry, to be happy
It's so light, It's so easy
Just to be

Oh God what would you do with me
Oh God what's my responsibility
God what would you do with me
Oh God what's my responsibility

Sh-sh-sh-Shara, now, get to work
Sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-Shara, this is going to hurt
Be brave, dear one.
Be changed or be undone.
Be brave, dear one.
Be changed or be undone.
Undone.

Now be brave, dear one
Be changed, be undone
Be brave, dear one
Be changed, be changed, be changed
Changed!
