Because I am a Barbarian
There’s dirt in my hair and mud on my knees
I run with horses and sing in the breeze
There are stars in my eyes and sky in my heart
I feel the Earth spin and the seasons progress
Because the blood of barbarians runs in my veins.
You build walls around me, but I will escape
I’ll find the trails and run for the hills
Dig into the earth where I can be free,
With birds and bears, foxes and trees.
For barbarian souls cannot be contained.
Fuck you, you bastards, I’ll say what I mean
I won’t bow to your idols nor repeat your lies
I am not your dog and I cannot be tamed
Because I am a barbarian and I do not obey.
Flatten the hills and murder the wolves
Choke rivers with shit and turn the frogs gay
Trample the flowers and murder your neighbors
All in the name of “Let’s follow the rules.”
But I am a barbarian and I won’t be a slave.
