If the School Board had a rear view mirror.

Rear-View-Mirror-Sky

This song made me think of Patricia Godziszewski’s time on the School Board.

I took a drive today
Time to emancipate
I guess it was the beatings, made me wise
But I’m not about to give thanks or apologize

I couldn’t breathe, holdin’ me down
Hand on my face, pushed to the ground
Enmity gaged, united by fear
Forced to endure what I could not forgive

I seem to look away
Wounds in the mirror waved
It wasn’t my surface
Most defiled

Head at your feet, fool to your crown
Fist on my plate, swallowed it down
Enmity gaged, united by fear
Tried to endure what I could not forgive

Saw things, saw things
Saw things, saw things
Clearer, clearer
Once you, were in my rear view mirror

I gather speed from you fucking with me
Once and for all, I’m far away
I hardly believe, finally the shades
Are raised, hey

Saw things so much clearer
Once you, once you
(Rear view mirror)
Saw things so much clearer
Once you, once you
(Rear view mirror)

Saw things so much clearer
Once you, once you
(Rear view mirror)
Saw things so much clearer
Once you
Oh yeah

Pearl Jam – RearViewMirror Lyrics
