you say, girl i like it fast
i say, boy that don’t surprise me
for what it’s worth i didn’t even ask
but you just gotta advise me
i’m not hoping i’m not wishing
i’m not asking for permission
you keep talking i’m not listening
my existence ain’t on trial
here comes that crazy bitch again
why does she get sensitive when
you tell her she’d look better if she’d only fucking smile
i didn’t ask you (woah)
how you see me (ooh)
i don’t need you (boy)
just to be me (yeah)
you say, girl you’re so emotional
i say, boy you’re just afraid of
living in a world where you’re losing control
you cower in the power that i’m made of
but it’s physical, political,
emotional and spiritual
it’s sexual, perpetual,
here comes that short skirt argument
why does she get sensitive when
you put your hands all over her
and tell her it’s her fault
another unarmed black man
lying dead in the sun
another flag-hag pigskin patriot
walks fast past the homeless veteran
what the hell do you stand for?
what the hell will you fall for?
what the fuck are you waiting for?
does a cat got your tongue?
another ar15 minutes
another thought, another prayer
another nra-hole politician
too tightly tucked into bed to care
another brown child in a cage
while an orange man turns tricks
you turn a blind eye to grabbing pussy
do you like to watch him suck dictatorships?
so you're not speaking, you don't like the way your voice quakes
but you're teaching your children
with every sound that you don't make
so you're not marching, you don't like it when your feet ache
but your children are watching every step that you don't take
it's not good enough to leave well enough alone
they got weapons of war, we got pens, shoes, and microphones
do you love enough to not leave well enough alone?
so you're not giving, you don't really have a dime to spare
but your children are invested in a future that you won't share
so you're not searching, you'd rather play your trump card
but your children are hurting with every fact that you disregard
*written to the tune of “Part of Your World” from The Little Mermaid
i guess it's trump, what a crushing defeat
can't believe he's allowed in the president's seat
can't everyone see he's an ass - an ass who hates everything?
look at his team, dangers untold
how many disasters can one cabinet hold?
somebody pass me a drink, at this point i’ll drink anything
he hates brown people, gays, the disabled
he hates women and science and more
i was sure no one thought he was able
i was wrong, now I'm scared, of what's in store
i wanna be where the sheeple aren't
i wanna see humanity advancing
exercising your, what do you call it? oh - brain
grabbing pussies got trump this far
not paying taxes or his employees
bragging about, what's that word again? rape
sexual assault is not fucking fun, just ask his victims, every last one
the jock gets away and the best we can say:
rape's just part of our world
what would i give if i could live where people were smarter?
not pray away gay, or get in the way of a parenthood planned
don't you understand this is a man who has objectified his daughter? still there are women who voted him in, it's unreal as his tan
i'm not ready to reap what the people sow
we've got some questions, let's find the answers
starting with lessons we've already, i don't know…learned
when's it our turn? we know what we need:
to live in a land ruled by love and not greed
out of the debris, how about you and me take charge of our world?
