We Are Ruled

We were ruled
We were there, we were breathing
Our voices hushed, our surroundings still
Looking towards a man
To save us; to kill us

We were wild
We were free, we were running
Our voices heard, our surroundings new
Reaching towards the sky
To accept us; to embrace us

We are ruled
We are there, we are breathing
Our voices loud, our surroundings dark
Looking towards a podium
To save us; to kill us
