lyrics

The fields are exhausting
But I don't get to choose
The secret we have been holding
You I never wanted to lose
But today you've gone and sold me
With the marks on my back

The chains couldn't be any tighter
On the stage of auction day
I like to think I'm a fighter
When there's something good to save

But the way you've gone and sold me
With the marks fresh on my back
Shows the feelings about me you've been holding

Now I don't know if you could've told me
Why you don't think that this could be
Now my heart's filled with anger and loathing
But today's gonna be back
Well, today's gonna be back
Yeah, it's gonna be back

We had to be be silent
No one could know, white or black
In your chambers behind closed doors
You couldn't be held back

But the way you've gone and sold me
With the marks fresh on my back
Answers the questions about me you've been holding
Holding back

Now I don't know if you could've told me
Why you don't think that this could be
Now my heart's filled with anger and loathing
But today's gonna be back
Well today's gonna be back
Yeah, it's gonna be back

It's gonna be back as if the marks weren't all that bad
It makes me wonder if I'll ever be told I'm free and it's sad
But the way you've gone and sold me
With the marks fresh on my back
Answers the questions about me you've been holding
Holding back

Now I don't know if you could've told me
Why you don't think that this could be
Now my heart's filled with anger and loathing
But today's gonna be back
Well today's gonna be back

And I don't know if you could've told me
Why you don't think that this could be
Now my heart's filled with anger and loathing
But today's gonna be back
Well today's gonna be back
Today's gonna be back
Well today's gonna be back

Yeah, it's gonna be back
Today is gonna be back
Today is gonna...
