Heart of Nat Turner

I am reading the confessions of a man driven mad by the chains And the whip upon his back
I look up at once to see the angry sons of those he claimed
In their January march to the attack
Let not anger overtake me as I watch their spirits soar
On the heady incense of rage
Let not visions fill my head - of dancing in the fields
As those sins come a’calling for their wage

Don’t let me feel the heart of Nat Turner
Beating in my chest
Beating in my chest                      
Don’t let me feel his troubled voice calling me from rest
Me from rest
Calling me from my rest

I am trying to be kind
To calm this beast
I am hoping with reason to respond
If I allow myself
To enjoy the feast
I may never return from beyond
As you wail about the insults to your rights
As you’re crying stop the steal
Don’t tread on me
I would like to submit for your
It was you who denied him liberty

(Chorus x2)
You make me feel
Don’t make me feel
You make me feel like a Nat Turner woman

Don’t make me feel the heart of Nat Turner beating in my chest
Beating in my chest
