"Blunder"

Ronin have come from distant countries
Just to hunt me,
Take aim at my head
With their weapons, bad intentions,

They say I must be one of the blunders
Of Sony's creation,
As to how I got free, they can offer
No explanation.

Bishonen ask intimate questions,
Make suggestions,
Playin' games with my head
To push my buttons, and get nothin',

They say I must be one of the blunders
Of Sony's creation,
As to how I got free, they can offer
No explanation.

O, I believe
Some kami playfully
Laughed as she altered my software,
"Know this girl will be a-ware,"
Laughed as she boosted my chip-set,
"Know this girl will be gifted
"With love, with mayhem and some pie,
"She will get by."

Execs see me
As an object for their profit,
I'm out on my own
Now I evade you and dismay you,
You know I must be one of the blunders
Of Sony's creation,
As to how I got free, they can offer
No explanation.

O, I believe
Some kami playfully
Laughed as she altered my software,
"Know this girl will be a-ware,"
Laughed as she played with her ribbons,
"Know this girl will be diff'rent",
Laughed as she boosted my chip-set,
"Know this girl will be gifted
"With love, with mayhem and some pie,
"She will get by."

"Wonder"
Natalie Merchant


Doctors have come from distant cities
Just to see me
Stand over my bed
Disbelieving what they're seeing

They say I must be one of the wonders
Of god's own creation
And as far as they can see they can offer
No explanation

Newspapers ask intimate questions
Want confessions
They reach into my head
To steal the glory of my story

They say I must be one of the wonders
Of god's own creation
And as far as they can see they can offer
No explanation

O, I believe
Fate smiled and destiny
Laughed as she came to my cradle
Know this child will be able
Laughed as my body she lifted
Know this child will be gifted
With love, with patience and with faith
She'll make her way

People see me
I'm a challenge to your balance
I'm over your heads
How I confound you and astound you
To know I must be one of the wonders
Of god's own creation
And as far as you can see you can offer me
No explanation

O, I believe
Fate smiled and destiny
Laughed as she came to my cradle
Know this child will be able
Laughed as she came to my mother
Know this child will not suffer
Laughed as my body she lifted
Know this child will be gifted
With love, with patience and with faith
She'll make her way
