WHAT AM I? (2:36)

(Terrence Hemp Cummings)

I AM IRON, I AM STEEL
I’M THE HOT HUMID BREATH THAT YOU FEEL
ON THE BACK OF YOUR NECK AS YOU SQUEAL
AT THE DEATH OF YOUR WORLD
ONCE SO REAL

I AM LAVA, I AM STONE
I’M THE COLD DRIPPING SWEAT THAT YOU’VE KNOW
ON THE BACK OF YOUR HEAD AS YOUR BONES
FEEL THE THREAT THAT’S NOW HURLED
AT YOUR OWN

I AM HONOR, I AM TRUTH
I AM BEAUTY AND VIGOR AND YOUTH
AND I’M AFTER WHAT’S BETTER WITH WHO
I CAN GET WHAT MY WORDS
TELL ME TO

I AM SUFFERING, I AM PAIN
I’M THE FLASH YOU PERCEIVE IN YOUR BRAIN
WHEN YOU HAVE TO DECEIVE TO EVADE
WHAT YOU DID AS YOU SQUIRM
TO EXPLAIN

I AM PASSION, I AM LOVE
I’M THE THING YOU CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF
AS YOU HAVE TO REJECT KNOWLEDGE OF
THE TRUE DEPTH OF YOUR HURT
CAUSED BY LOVE

I AM REAL, I AM HERE
THOUGH YOU SCOFFED AT MY BEST AND YOU SNEARED
AND YOU LAUGHED AND YOU TESTED MY EARS
AND THE DEPTH OF MY NERVE
AND MY FEARS
