about

You shouldn't feel threatened. You shouldn't have to take great measures just to feel 'safe' from predators. You shouldn't have to deal with people who feel entitled to your body. You have every right to tell them to fuck off.

The first ever song I wrote on my telecaster.

lyrics

Let me feel your heart beat, let me see your star fleet,
let me show you my collection, of little human connections,
can I have a cigarette, I don't really smoke except, when I've been drinking, psychosomatic interventions..

Drag me down to your level, try to get into my head,
but I've been fighting tooth and nail, ever since I can remember,
parched and punch drunk, hot and heavy enemies,
brat-pack, good-for-nothing drain on society...

Don't touch me, Don't tell me to smile...

Bite your tongue and tilt your head, don't blame it on my ovaries,
it's not my fault if you are just, a total, utter fucking mess,
take responsibility, verbal vitality,
bit off more than you could chew, I'll leave if it's the same with you...

Don't touch me, Don't tell me to smile...

I'm alone and you're alone and I'm alone and we're both strangers....
