And if My Body                        
 
and if my body’s not enough
I shouldn’t qualify
and if my body’s not enough
I shouldn’t have to try
if my body isn’t mine
I shouldn’t pay a tax
if my body isn’t mine
then I’m not giving back
 
they all love you when you’re speaking up for everyone else
they all love you when you’re serving, they say things like “god bless”
they all love you ‘til you’re fighting for your own asses
fuck them all, then
they can make new people to serve the masses
 
and if my body’s not enough
I’m gonna speak my piece
and if my body’s not enough
I’m gonna keep it brief
and if my body isn’t mine
this isn’t gonna work
and if my body isn’t mine
I’m gonna raise the dirt
 
they all love you when you’re speaking up for everyone else
they all love you when you’re serving, they say things like “god bless”
they all love you ‘til you’re fighting for your own asses
fuck them all, then
they can make new people to serve
 
like we all said, this would come
like we all said, this was real
like we all said, this is the big one
they said “calm down,” so now we’re all down here
 
 
I don’t owe you my strength
I don’t owe you my spine
I don’t owe you my words
I don’t own you my time
I don’t owe you my strength
I don’t owe you my spine
I don’t owe you my work
I don’t own you what’s mine
 
they all love you when you’re speaking up for everyone else
they all love you when you’re serving, they say things like “god bless”
they all love you ‘til you’re showing off your own asses
fuck them all, then
they can make new people to serve the masses
 
I don’t owe you my strength
I don’t owe you my spine
I don’t owe you my work
I don’t own you what’s mine
