Track Name: Consent
the media's terminology sets a standard so you are conditioned
does it even feel like a crime when the ones defiled are dehumanized

"but she was asking for it with that low-cut shirt"
but did she say yes? did she consent?

i don't care what she was wearing
i don't care how much she drank
how the fuck can you justify a fucking rape?
Track Name: Tool
you don't love yourself
so you've gotta love someone else
you need someone to want you
you need someone to fuck you
you don't want dignity
you want to be a commodity
you make yourself an object
you make yourself a tool

you're letting yourself be used
and you're using the one that's using you
you are fucking nobody
Track Name: Never Forget
never forget what happens in the name of a holy land
never forget that innocent children in palestine are dead
never forget that the blood of millions is pouring down your hands
never forget that your government is sleeping in israel's bed

their houses are leveled
their schools are a wreck
but it's all ok
'cause these killers are blessed

never forget that your money is used to take away their lives
never forget that your taxes pay for the bombs that are dropped on their heads
never forget that terrorism is coming from both sides
never forget that the schools and the streets and the mosques are all stained red
Track Name: Fault
somebody handed me a paper
an innocent child had been shot dead
whose fault was it? the kid who shot the bullet?
or the society that taught him to?
when you come from a position of privilege
things are more precious than human life
it's easy to ostracize
it's easy to condemn

targeted with idealized
and twisted standards of value
the individual is not the one at fault
Track Name: Person
don't want to be a man
don't care if you think i'm weak
i don't want to be a man
don't care what you think i should be

i don't want a woman
i don't want a girl
i don't want a woman
i don't want a whore

i don't want to be a man
don't care if you think i'm weak
i just want to be a person
and it's not what you want me to be
