“Hunt and gather / Build and break / Some of us give but / everybody takes”

Hunt and gather

Build and break

Some of us give but

everybody takes


Breathe and shout

and kill the others

Don’t leave the pack

We’re your sisters, brothers


Run and hide

and burn it all down

Do what you have to

to get to wear the crown


Hunt and gather

Give and take

Push for yourself

until everything breaks
