lyrics

Devil’s advocate wants to come out again
Cuz he’d like to tell all women that it’s “not all men”
and I’m just a bitch who can’t take a joke
But he’ll claim his sense of humour is merely to provoke
He gets his kicks looking for another reason to fight
But he can't understand why I walk home at night
With my keys in between my fingers like knives
But sure it’s just a bit of banter for all the guys

She shouldn’t have to be your sister
She shouldn’t have to be your mother
Your relationship should not define how much you should respect her

Do you like women or do you like power?

Not every wasp is out to sting
Not every tick carries disease
Not every snake is venomous
But we perceive them dangerous
And who do we call for help
Who do we call for help
Who do we call for help
When the help seems like a threat to me

She shouldn’t have to be your girlfriend
She shouldn’t have to be you lover
A woman’s worth should not come down to how much you wanna fuck her

She shouldn’t have to be your girlfriend
She shouldn’t have to be your lover
A woman’s worth should not come down to how much you wanna fuck her

She shouldn’t have to be your sister
She shouldn’t have to be your girlfriend
She shouldn’t have to be your mother
She was just a person
