A woman is like a teabag, you can't tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water- Eleanor Roosevelt

They don't make 'em like that no more
when the gravity of mind is straight and sure
when they know sure as hell what they's fighting for
they don't make 'em like that no more

Time for us done come and passed
Now the ground is rushing up fast
leavin' us in the dust;wished they'd asked

Now we gotta find our place here
in a new world cold as a mirror
while they sit by and grin;suck marrow from our fear

They don't make 'em like us no more

I feel, strangely, like part of a dying breed. I'm looking for people who feel part of this extinction.
