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
And your better know that this time
When we scream,
The world will echo back.
— The End —
