I will not stand immersed in this ultraviolet curse
I won't let you make a tool of me, I will keep my mind and body free

Bye Bye minutiae
Of the day to day drama
I am expanding exponentially
I am consciousness without identity
I am many things made of everything
but I will not be your bankroll
I won't idle in your drive thru, I won't watch your electric sideshow
I got way better places to to go

I will maintain the truth I knew naturally as a child
I won't forfeit my creativity to a world that's all laid our for me
I will look at everything and I will vow to bear in mind
That all of this was just someone's idea, it could just as well be mine

I won't rent you my time, I won't sell you my brain
I won't pray to a male god, cause you know, that would be insane
I can't support the troops, cause every last one of them is being duped
I will not rest a wink, until we women have regrouped

I am many things made of everything
but I will not be your bankroll
I won't go in your drive thru, I won't watch your electric sideshow
I got way better placed to go
