Eyes of the Patriarchy

lyrics

Everyday I look at myself in the mirror
Through the eyes of the patriarchy
Everyday I look at myself in the mirror
Through the eyes of the beauty industry

They want me to wear makeup,
They want me to shave my bodyhair.
They want me to shut the fuck up,
They want me to be submissive.

And we say No
We say NO

Everyday I look at myself in the mirror
Through the eyes of the patriarchy
Everyday I look at myself in the mirror
Through the eyes of the beauty industry

They want me to get undressed,
and pose in front of a mirror.
Then they call me a dirty slut,
and tell me I was asking for it.

And we say No
We say NO

Everyday I look to find my allies
In smashing the patriarchy
Everyday I look to find my allie
In smashing the beauty industry
No justice equals no peace
We won't stop until there's no silence.
No justice equals no peace
We won't stop until there's no silence.

And we won't stop
We WON'T STOP!
