Cass McCombs Run Sister Run Lyrics

[Verse 1]
They're coming at you from all sides
To imprint your body and say they didn't
The highest authority on Cheez Whiz
Hiding behind a Supreme Court urinal
[Chorus]
Run, sister, run
Sister, run, sister
Run, sister, run
[Verse 2]
Or do male justices p*** in a squat?
Our sister lives in a squat that p***** on justice
Justice is blind and a woman to boot
These boots are made for marching and that's justice too

[Chorus]
Run, sister, run
Sister, run, sister
Run, sister, run

[Verse 3]
They say silly woman can't organize a spice rack
And when we say they we mean us part of the time
We are all one but not today
Fish tomorrow, not today

[Chorus]
Run, sister, run
Sister, run, sister
Run, sister, run

[Verse 4]
Run back to the park, they'll roll you a cig, free
Run to any immigrant detention facility
Run you back to the jailhouse
For not talking s*** on their ugly wives and kids
[Chorus]
Run, sister, run
Sister, run, sister
Run, sister, run

[Verse 4]
Run you up a thirty foot totem pole
Run, sister, tell the people
Run your life if you're not careful
Tell Father Time his daughters are waiting

[Chorus]
Run, sister, run
Sister, run, sister
Run, sister, run

[Verse 5]
My sister's a Queen, she ain't no concubine
Don't call my sister no concubine, she is the Mother of Creation
Who are you? who are you to call her a concubine?
Don't you know you got to forgive that you may be forgiven?
[Chorus]
Run, sister, run
Sister, run, sister
Run, sister, run

[Verse 6]
Men - respect your sister and respect your Queen
Be good to your woman, my man, and she will free you
Sister - forgive your man that he may rise from bondage
Only you sister, only you my Queen can free the man

[Chorus]
Run, sister, run
Sister, run, sister
Run, sister, run

[Verse 7]
Full moon in Pisces, a reflective riddle
Illusory shadows upon open wounds
Wars of our fathers bouncing like a pinball machines
Between me and my brother stands our sister, don't shoot!

[Chorus]
Run, sister, run
Sister, run, sister
Run, sister, run
