From English

How far am I really from                that girl
speaking a tongue                         in school

not our own Telling                           the lies
language makes pretty                 Our dark 

our brown something                 to cover
Our clumsy tongue                     always 

corrected                                   correcting
Taking it back                             every chance 

I can Perfect                               Imperfect
Didn't you steal from us                 Mountains 

Gold buried                                   in boondocks 
                  Made savage
