about

'Survivor' is the first track taken from our upcoming 2018 EP, to be released via Hassle Records, further details coming soon!

lyrics

I'm not a victim I survived
It was my anger that kept me alive
I'm not so fragile I already broke
Can't make me shut up if I already spoke

It was my anger, was my anger
It was my anger that kept me alive

They want me to take it
But not like a man
They want me to take it
Again and again

Emotional
Hysterical
Irrational
Asking for it

Words used against women who do not fit into
Our archaic culture's limited view of gender
We are the lying harlot the conspiring witch
Prude slut insatiable bitch

What you gunna do when the coven assembles
What you gunna do when the pack forms

Don't tell me how to cope or how to be
Stop pointing superior fingers at me
This place is so small I can't breath
Sooner or later I will bare my teeth

They want me to take it
But not like a man
They want me to take it
Again and again
Don't treat me like I'm fragile
I already broke
Can't silence a movement
It's too late we spoke

And if I froze up do you think that's consent?
If I remained friendly does that mean I'm fine?
If I walked out and left you is that all this done?
If I defended myself is it me in the wrong?
If I fought back we're even?
If I froze up I lied
No belief unless I fucking lay down and died
I'm gunna make it
I will survive
It was my anger that kept me alive.
