Track Name: Tied Hands
narrow your eyes to match your mind. an immutable skeptic because you've never had to question this system (and you've never been questioned). you're buying all of the answers and they are always "yes!"
your birthright, your fate, not a choice you have made. "its out of my hands." its not out of your hands and this blood is on your fucking hands.
Track Name: Shrew
the story of the she-devil: a timeless tale told by boring, thoughtless men - and this story is getting told. demonize those who have scorned. the rejection of your affection garners an affectation of a man forlorn but a woman is not a possession that you can own.
Track Name: Severed
I refuse this bloodline. sever these familial ties that bind and cause a stranglehold. the burden of your name weighs me down. I thank you for my existence and I give thanks for nothing else: addiction, abandonment, abuse. this legacy won't live on. discarded and now you regret but its too fucking late. I refuse this bloodline - sever these familial ties that bind and cause a stranglehold. break the nuclear family mold.
Track Name: Ordination
pressure building. seams are splitting. inquiries about my future are a constant topic of conversation. avoiding questions from those who don't think that we can grow outside of their molds. that we can age and not become old.
Track Name: Possess
rage boiling up and spilling over. expressions and images of violence. and its all for what? speaking of futile visions of war when this is not your property and this battleground isn't yours. what is this anger for? your anger is not as an ally - your outrage is only for yourself. its in your name that they wage wars. what is your anger for?
Track Name: Systemic
the safer spaces that you break are the same ones that we have made. this silence means we are all complicit, our blinders show that no one is innocent. rape culture is our culture, we can't run and we can not hide. rape culture is our culture, we can’t run and we can't deny that this culture is a reflection of our sexist socialization. of our misogynistic institutions, our patriarchal family solutions, our victim-blaming traditions.
Track Name: Unchain
a species becomes a tortured specimen. our excuse: a history we see as carnivoran. outdated myriad reasons to industrialize this cycle of cruelty. so many thoughtless ideas that reproduce this abuse carelessly. it all comes down to this: total liberation requires a critique of our comfortable, bestowed routines (and this comfort is only ours). total liberation requires facing the fear of a compassion that is yet unknown. casting off all shackles, breaking down all walls.
