An original song inspired by Rebecca Sugar's Steven Universe.


Popped out a hole, spent my days alone in the shadows and the grey
Scraping along living on my own 'til sunlight came my way
I'd be part of something
A "family," all or nothing
You'd love me unconditionally

Said bye to Mr. Solitude and the home I thought I had
Listened to you, and I learned that maybe I was something bad
Earthquakes, drilling out all the
Mistakes from the ground where I
Once lay, to emerge too late

Never fulfilled my directive
I slept in for too long
No one waited up for me
Should have been more me
But I came out wrong

I reject that directive
To wreck it
The Earth I serve today
Guess I'm lucky I can live
Past locked away

Keep telling myself that I am worthy to defend this land
Deep down, I know it in my heart, but my mind has other plans
You can tell me thousands of
Times that you're all proud of me
But doubt lingers like a black cloud

Building myself up brick by brick, believing I'm okay
But one single word can pierce the cracks and crumble me away
Still I'll keep rebuilding and
Make my life fulfilling, cause
Perseverance pays, and I might gain

A whole new perspective
Defective =
Protective of my home
And I'd say I'm effective
But not alone
