Title: Weapon
Fandom: Janelle Monáe - Works (Cindi Mayweather universe)
Song: Weapon by Bastille vs. Angel Haze vs. F-U-G-Z vs. Braque (But I cut a lot of it, including the whole coda. I love the coda but I couldn't make it work. The full 4:30 minute version is amazing.)

Summary: Throw all your hell towards the heavens, cause your voice is a weapon.

Notes: [personal profile] thingswithwings did truly heroic beta work on this, including proposing the credits aesthetic, bridging some sections I was despairing about, and (bless her) discouraging me from trying to solve those problems by going searching for more outside footage. Thanks so much, friend.

Lyrics:
Yeah

This is vocal detection
Front line I open selection
Outlined in open profession
This is his vocal confession
Right now your chords are at war
Screaming you wanted it more
Sit down and master the reference
Right now your voice is a weapon
Wake up to stars in the sky
Watch light revolve with your mind
Watch all the storms in the rise
And put all your palms in the sky
No more falling to pressure
No more failing acceptance
Throw all your hell towards the heavens
Cause your voice is a weapon

And your voice is a weapon
And we’ll do with it what we can
And your voice is a weapon
And we’ll do with it what we can
I’ll fall into your arms again
I’ll fall into your arms again
I’ll fall into your arms again
I’ll fall into your arms

Pressure that deepen the cut
When will the evil erupt?
Volcanic feverish lust
That shit will even it out
Pressure is feeding the dust
Reckless is keeping the cut
Vengeance is me speaking up
This is me speaking up

And your voice is a weapon
And we’ll do with it what we can
And your voice is a weapon
And we’ll do with it what we can
I’ll fall into your arms again
I’ll fall into your arms again
I’ll fall into your arms again
I’ll fall into your arms

Your voice is a weapon
So do with it what you can
Your voice is a weapon
So do with it what you can
Leave behind your questions, silent thoughts, and mentions
Your voice is a weapon
So do with it what you can
