Lyrics
I do think that women could make politics irrelevant.
By as a kind of spontaneous cooperative action,
The like of which we have never seen.
Which is so far from people's ideas of state structure
And vital social structure that seems to them like total anarchy.
And what it really is is very subtle forms of interrellation

Which do not follow sort of hierarchical pattern which is
Fundamentally patriarchal.
The opposite to patriarchy is not matriarchy but fraternity.
And I think it's women who are going to have to
Break this spiral of power
And find the trick of cooperation.
