So Thankful - Lyrics

Papa didn't die in vain.
His son carries on his name.
His face, his fire, his flame.
The way he talked. The way he sang.
Mans still feels the pain.
She will not live in vain.
Of how where babies came.
And who the fuck to blame now.
She says,
"Oo so thankful, oo so thankful!"
"Oo so thankful, oo so thankful!"

Grandma used to cut herself raw.
Not the hardest thing little mama's eyes saw.
Said, drunk Indians fighting cops.
Trafficking little girls around the block.
I Said, "When the rape gonna stop?"
She said, "Not any time soon baby that's real talk."
Oo so thankful, oo so thankful!
Oo so thankful, oo so thankful!

Mama never said it's okay
for this old man to touch her this way.
Grandma, well she got paid
and that's one thing I'm not proud to say.
I never thought I'd give thanks for rape,
but that's how I got here today.
Said, Oo so thankful, oo so thankful
Oo so thankful, oo so thankful

Got to give, got to give got to give...
Got to give my mama a little kiss, yeah...
Got to give, got to give got to give...
Got to give my mama a little kiss, yeah...

Papa got shot in the head.
He got what was coming to him, now he's dead.
Child molester, 36 years old.
Left four kids and a wife in the cold.
Great grandfather got shot in the back.
Protecting Filipinos
from the corporate attack.
And great grandmother
shot herself in the mouth.
She was ready to go,
and I could hear her shout
She says,
"Oo so thankful, oo so thankful"
"Oo so thankful, oo so thankful"

Got to give, got to give got to give...
Got to give my papa a little kiss, yeah...
Got to give, got to give got to give...
Got to give my papa a little kiss, yeah...

The papa that raised me died of cancer.
I was holding his hand
as his spirit surrendered.
Put a roof over my head,
food in my belly.
He was a king and a father to many.
The mother that raised me
is truly a queen.
Taught me how to love God
and follow my dreams.
Said, "oo so grateful, oo so grateful"
"Oo so grateful, oo so grateful"

Coyote came and spoke to me he said,
"Get used to your destiny"

Every moment is a mystery to me.
Getting pretty good at listening.

Every moment is a mystery to me.
Getting pretty good at honoring.
