Lyrics:

I am on the floor
I am in my kitchen
This place is so familiar on my knees
I can hear the footsteps
I can see their back walking out
I don’t know who to reach for when I need

And so I’ll pray to Her today
I ask for mercy and I beg for pauses, ooh
She’s coming in warm all like Kali
And coursing through my veins like Liquid Mary, ooh

She’s not buying my shell
She sees right through my armor
She lingers in my shadows knowingly
She treats them like they’re angels
And maybe they are angels, really
She beckons me to braver inquiry

And so I pray to Her today
I ask for mercy and I beg for patience, ooh
She’s coming in hot all like Shakti
And coursing through my veins like Liquid Mary, ooh

And even though she knows me well
It doesn’t mean it’s easy to pull me out of my self-imposed hell

She knows all of my secrets
When I’m out of my body
I’m starting to see outlines of her face
She follows me when I run away
And even when I cut her off
She still says that she loves me, come what may

And so I pray to Her today
I ask for mercy and I beg for pauses, ooh
She’s coming in hot like all Kali
And coursing through my veins like Liquid Mary, ooh
