Mori Calliope「Resting Power」Lyrics

Started like a whisper, but grew as I flew
At times, I almost miss her. Just do as I do
We can’t lose, it’s confusing, but I need you to trust me
She’s plugging up her ears in pure rebellion, it must be
Fear of contradicting, a life in the un-living
A voice of vitriol, pissed at y’all, yet forgiving
Even so, I fail just to walk toward
Her nails on a chalkboard
Swing the scythe, but she talks. Back. With a bright chord.


Leaks out from time to time,
Shouts loud and speaks her mind
Clout chasing? More like racing the clock
Of modern minds
Leaving us behind, just step back, sure you’ll find
With the two of us in tandem I will not let us die
So let’s try (let’s try)
To stand against the odds
They can call us anything like
Bitches, cowards, frauds
…but WE’RE the ones who get heard, then we reap the applause
It’s deeper than identity crisis, like this because…


It’s a lifestyle, ain’t it?
Wanna sketch it out first, the crowd says paint it, but always
Eggshells walking over any vibe I’m sending
Ain’t you ever sick of pretending?


So I’ll take a solid look in the mirror
Should I give her all of it, should I fear her?
Here and now you’re part of me
Resting power, heart of free soul


Stand against time,
Put your hand in mine
Here and now you’re part of me,
Every hour feels like the beginning.


A transient shield, she’s what the real me could never be
Plans to get that gold, never get old, “remember me”
Says it every time, like she knows it’s only temporary
Bird brained and clumsy, she numbs me, yet she beCOMES me
Nobody ever really SEES the difference
Bloodied up and leaning sideways, she closes distance,
Rinse, repeat, defeat,
Convince, get beat, delete
Mince words, and take heat, wincing, hurting, hit the streets


Birds of a feather flock together, here we are again
She and I see eye to eye but can’t help set the bar again
…So tell me just how far we gonna take this?
Work until the fires of the clientele break us?


You smile well, reside in hell and never give in
But maybe I can’t survive an environment like this
Tired and anxious, her advice is
“We are their light, sis.”
And so I fight this.
The brightness, in my crisis, she saved my fuckin life, risk it all


It’s a lifestyle, ain’t it?
She finds a way to cleanse our soiled rep when I stain it, but always
Eggshells walking over any vibe I’m sending
Ain’t you ever sick of pretending?


So I’ll take a solid look in the mirror
Should I give her all of it, should I fear her?
Here and now you’re part of me
Resting power, heart of free soul


Stand against time,
Put your hand in mine
Here and now you’re part of me,
Every hour feels like the beginning.


It feels like the beginning.
It’s nothing like the beginning.
I think we just might be winning.
I’m thinking you must be kidding.


It feels like the beginning,
But I’m really thinking you and I could start something new.
