You found me in a fragile state In no position to negotiate I would do anything to keep the peace An easy target for your control freak tendencies Now I am taking the power back Consider this a unilateral attack Our destruction is now mutually assured I see no difference between love and war anymore I love you but you make me want to die And so I must erase you I lose sight of myself, yeah you’re bad for my health I’ve lost too much sleep already You can think what you like, go wherever feels right Just stay away from me Your time has come, I am deleting you Wiping every memory and removing my tattoo You said I couldn’t, I’ll show you I can Gathered up the things you gave me, took them all to Oxfam Did you know I can make a man just disappear These battle scars my only souvenir I push the button, there’s a satisfying sound This user could not be found I love you but you make me want to die And so I must erase you I lose sight of myself, yeah you’re bad for my health I’ve lost too much sleep already You can think what you like, go wherever feels right Just stay away from me I’ve a right to take up space and a right to ask for what I need I don’t need your permission and I owe no apologies I got no choice but to erase you as my survival strategy I’ve nothing left to say except stay the hell away from me Don’t want to see you No longer need you Time to erase you Stay the hell away from me I love you but you make me want to die And so I must erase you I lose sight of myself, yeah you’re bad for my health I’ve lost too much sleep already You can think what you like, go wherever feels right Just stay away from me

Good Guys 04:17
Well lately I’ve confirmed what I’ve always known That dating makes me wish I was at home alone I feel like I’m interviewing badly For a star role in your perfect nuclear family I don’t mean to be rude but I must enquire Aren’t you worried that your ovaries will soon expire? Oh no, I’m not working to a schedule My life plan is I’m following my own rules Oh oh, where are all the good guys? Is there a failsafe way to tell? Do you think maybe I could have one Who’s smart and hot and feminist as well? I’m tired of all the men who think that they know best And lecture me on sexism while talking to my chest It seems my body’s not my own And I’m told to lose the shrill tone All my female friends have stories of assault We've had to try and teach ourselves it’s not our fault ‘Cause blame gets shifted onto us And we’re told that we shouldn’t make a fuss Oh oh, where are all the good guys? Is there a failsafe way to tell? Do you think maybe I could have one Who’s smart and hot and feminist as well? We have been sold a pre-packaged ideal of romantic love As all that we need, the highest achievement for girls like me When will we rewrite this fantasy?

Such a Girl 03:33
Hide all emotions under six feet of cement Like a plague victim or a nuclear accident Whatever it takes to stop the world from seeing No one must know I’m a human being I cry, they say must you always be this way And they say, they say Don’t be such a girl You know you’ve got to man up It’s a brutal world out there But I don’t see what’s wrong with letting everyone see That I get broken and lonely and scared You don’t care about anything or so I’m told It keeps you safe but it leaves me cold So drop that nonchalant act, I’m not buying it Show me who you really are, no justifying it You cry, they say you’re not meant to be this way And they say, they say Don’t be such a girl You know you’ve got to man up It’s a brutal world out there But I don’t see what’s wrong with letting everyone see That I get broken and lonely and scared So feed me digital entertainment direct into my frontal lobes And let it wash away feelings, the kind I’d rather not expose They say don’t be such a girl You know you’ve got to man up It’s a brutal world out there But I don’t see what’s wrong with letting everyone see That I get broken and lonely and scared

Some days it makes me sad The human race is destroying itself piece by piece I must say it doesn’t feel great That we’re all going to kill each other Over the last drops of oil and water Sometimes it gets me down Neoliberal white supremacist Hetero-normative patriarchy But now I think I’ve found the answer to my prayers It’s my creation, my masterpiece I built a fort with duvets and the living room chairs I’m never coming out but you can join me if you want Please come and see it Oh come and see I built a fort with duvets and the living room chairs I’m never coming out but you can join me if you want This is it now I’m not going anywhere I turned on the news today Earthquakes, dictatorships and war in the Middle East I try to do my bit Join forces, build movements Shout louder, and take them down, yeah Most days I fight and win But today I am done with this world I got no fight left so I declare this the People’s Republic of My Fort You are invited cordially I built a fort with duvets and the living room chairs I’m never coming out but you can join me if you want Please come and see it Oh come and see I built a fort with duvets and the living room chairs I’m never coming out but you can join me if you want This is it now I’m not going anywhere If you’re fucked up and you know it clap your hands If you’re fucked up and you know it clap your hands If you’re way beyond repairing and everyone stopped caring If you’re fucked up and you know it clap your hands If you’re fucked up and you know it stamp your feet If you’re fucked up and you know it stamp your feet If you’re focused on survival but you’re feeling suicidal If you’re fucked up and you know it stamp your feet I built a fort with duvets and the living room chairs I’m never coming out but you can join me if you want Please come and see it Oh come and see I built a fort with duvets and the living room chairs I’m never coming out but you can join me if you want This is it now I’m not going anywhere It’s the independent, radical Funny, sexy, magical People’s Republic of My Fort
