Track Name: Post-Patriarchy Disco
My sisters got sharp minds, raised fists and feminist dreams
My sisters are beautiful, dangerous, rebel queens
My sisters they got each other’s backs in solidarity
My sisters they analyse, organise, and push till victory

My sisters are queer straight, cis, trans, black, white and brown
My sisters make noise, make headlines and shut shit down
My sisters are restless, there’s always more work to do
My sisters got red lines, black lists, they take no shit from you

This is the resistance, calling all my sisters
Raise your voices loud

And I’ll see you at the post-patriarchy disco
Cause we waited so long, and we won’t back down
Yeah I’ll see you at the post-patriarchy disco
‘Cause all we want is liberation now

My sisters got war wounds, back stories, tales to tell
My sisters they build each other up, and build themselves as well
My sisters will keep on coming and we will outlast
My sisters got contacts, networks, they’re building movements fast

My sisters they think big, they got grand designs
My sisters got strong game, weird style, they colour outside the lines
My sisters create new worlds and they draw big crowds
My sisters they play hard, love deep and laugh out loud

This is the resistance, calling all my sisters
Raise your voices loud

And I’ll see you at the post-patriarchy disco
Cause we waited so long, and we won’t back down
Yeah I’ll see you at the post-patriarchy disco
‘Cause all we want is liberation now

‘Cause we’re getting impatient
This situation is holding us down
Are we done here?
Get ready
Go go go go go

And I’ll see you at the post-patriarchy disco
Cause we waited so long, and we won’t back down
Yeah I’ll see you at the post-patriarchy disco
‘Cause all we want is liberation now
Track Name: They Cut We Bleed (feat. Sisters Uncut)
They say cutback, we say fightback
Cut back – fight back
Cut back – fight back
They say cutback, we say fightback
Cut back – fight back
Cut back – fight back

Fight back, Fight back, Fight back, Fight back,
Fight back, Fight back, Fight back, Fight back,

They cut we bleed, They cut we bleed
They cut we bleed, They cut we bleed
They cut we bleed, They cut we bleed
They cut we bleed, They cut we bleed

It is our duty to fight for our freedom
It is our duty to win
We must love and support one another
We have nothing to lose but our chains

Back up, back up, we want freedom, freedom
All these sexist racist cuts, we don’t need ‘em, need ‘em
Back up, back up, we want freedom, freedom
All these sexist racist cuts, we don’t need ‘em, need ‘em

In the UK two women a week on average are killed at the hands of a partner or ex-partner
Two women a week – murdered
Two women a week – murdered
Two women a week – murdered
Two women a week – murdered

They cut we bleed, They cut we bleed
They cut we bleed, They cut we bleed
They cut we bleed, They cut we bleed
They cut we bleed, They cut we bleed

To those in power, our message this
We stand against austerity
Your cuts are dangerous
We will not be silenced
We stand united
And fight together
And together we will win

Back up, back up, we want freedom, freedom
All these sexist racist cuts, we don’t need ‘em, need ‘em
Back up, back up, we want freedom, freedom
All these sexist racist cuts, we don’t need ‘em, need ‘em
Back up, back up, we want freedom, freedom
All these sexist racist cuts, we don’t need ‘em, need ‘em
Back up, back up, we want freedom, freedom
All these sexist racist cuts, we don’t need ‘em, need ‘em
