May contain ideas
And the earth now quakes with the fear
That this fact implicates within you.
Because, if the world awakes
To what women have always known
Then the patriarchal balance is offset
Now, the foundations start to groan
Oh I have lashed out, hit back,
Swung my brain to prove the fact,
That just because I am female,
Doesn’t mean I am below you.
You can put me in the corner,
But when you shift your eyes away
I’ll use the chance to make my mark
To make a change today.
Playing You’re a Sister for Oxjam Brum tonight at the Victoria, Birmingham. Doors are at 7.30pm and we’re onstage at 8pm.
Love to see you there, and if you come, come say hi!
