Kitsuhana Hamika
Song: To Follow The Stream
Written By: Jeannette Anne Blanchard

All that you taught me was wrong.
And, now I know, I don't belong.
So much of my life was unnecessary strife,
Pain like a knife because you were his wife.
Why must children hurt for parents' sins?
This society makes one's heart dense.
So selfish, there is no love.
Makes us wish we could fly away, like a dove.
But, after each escapist dream, we're still here.
For all the brave things we type, there's still fear.

All that you taught me was wrong.
And, now I know, I don't belong.
I cannot conform to these heartless lies.
I cannot appreciate the things that you prize.
In the end, I can't give up on my dreams.
Come, and join me in the streams.
The emotional water's fine, come on in.
I'll still try, even though I can't win.
I want to save you, because I love you,
Even though you do everything you do.

All that you taught me was wrong.
And, now I know, I don't belong.
It's become clear that you can't be saved.
Longing to obtain everything I've craved,
I find I want to leave far from here.
The more I try, the more it becomes clear.
So clear, that I can't fit in.
My love can't undo all that has been,
Because it has no potency when not mutual.
I should leave you to unfeeling ritual.

All that you taught me was wrong.
And, now I know I don't belong,
I'm growing ready to leave this place.
I can't view life like a race,
And I won't view another like an object.
"Westernization," I reject.
Come to me, my ancestors' lost ways.
Come to me, so much better days.
Instead of you, I'll listen to the universe,
And not inherit your curse.

All that you taught me was wrong.
Everything you teach is wrong!
And, now I know...
That I need to go.
Because, I don't belong here.
Goodbye, people of fear.
I need to depart, before you destroy my heart.


Note: Even the fact they call it "westernization" is wrong. Song: The World Is Round
