I come to you, hu\mble and willing,
brave stepping over the bones of my brethren
I wouldn't come here if I wasn't desperate,
but I am too small, I cannot lift this.

One cement block could hold all I love
each moment sinking deep in the mud
and I would do everything in my own power
but I am too small, and so is the hour.

And will I never be great
because I refuse to be cruel
will I always be afraid
will I always need
an oracle?

They said you were great, and they were not lying,
but why is greatness so terrifying
great and terrible ... always in pairs
so we come to an oracle, trembling and scared

And will I never be great
because I refuse to be cruel
will I always be afraid
will I always need
an oracle?

I do not steal like the rats in the rosebushes
I do not kill like the owl in the forest
I do not lie like the leaders of fortresses
so will I die with the kind and the powerless?
I do not steal like the rats in the rosebushes
I do not kill like the owl in the forest
I do not lie like the leaders of fortresses
so I will die with the kind and the powerless.

And I say that I will never be great
because I refuse to be cruel
and I will always be a little afraid
I will always be little, but I would rather be little
than ever be
an oracle.
