Look at the weight of this stone
It won’t be moved
Daughters of daughters of time
Pushed on it, too
I’ll swerve like they taught me
I’ll carve out a new stream

Like water
Running the curves, seeking cracks in the earth
Like water
Nothing will keep her from the way that is hers

Could beat with bare hands this injustice
And break my fists
Or discover my power in knowing
Where I am powerless
Like my mothers have shown me
We get downhill by flowing

Like water
Dance thought the boulders that lie in the path
Like water
Surrender to gravity, rush through the cracks
Like water
We’re carving canyons through rock, shaping history
Like water
Drawing new maps with the soft power of flowing

We’ll get to the ocean
We’ll get to the waves
We’ll go where we’re going
Damn these barricades
My sisters, we’re moving
Carried on the strength
Of being fluid
We’ll get to the waves

We’ll get to the waves
