You think it doesn’t matter Maybe I should just shut up and mind my own business Leave your eyes to stare daggers And your slippery tongue to burn castles
I’m not apologizing For fighting back As you cut apart and dissect Life into *** and breast, Measuring beauty on a scale you’ve created out of blood And buying worth out of bone you pulled from our spines.
How much do we have to give For our voices to be heard, Cause you best believe We’ll give it all we got
No more standing in the corner Watching sisters fall on their knees Crying in front bathroom mirrors Whispering promises you can’t keep. No. Tonight we are standing With her.
And your better know that this time When we scream, The world will echo back.
