Hydra (2016)

               
 

Hydra

Cut me, then demonize me. 
When I gain strength, fear and despise me. 
I’m not one thing, that’s not how Nature formed me. 
What you try to kill becomes the steel that supports me.

Collide, collide, kaleidoscope
All of these patterns emerge as my own

Poison, my breath, my blood, it stings you. 
Venom fills my footprints and it sings to you. 
Labor to wring the danger from me. 
Notch your bed post, another monster at your feet.

Collide, collide, kaleidoscope

A mountain of faces with no features. 
Under a labyrinth of visages, you think I’m your creature
But oh, you’re just the student, I’m the teacher.

Collide, collide, kaleidoscope
All of these patterns emerge
