LYRICS

Some of our song lyrics:

WOMEN AND PSYCHIATRY
keep the memories alive
for whom we are goin’ to hell
dysmorphic-child desiring ovaries
that make us hysterical

believing superstitions
destroying our feelings
taking away our ovaries
fuck these assumption

Women and psychiatry
mirror of society
Women and psychiatry
long ‘Hystory’ of suffering

Keep the memories alive
from Nynphomania to…to….
Sexual interest-aurosal disorder
Wah Wah!
it’s always been like that
Burnt on a stake and medicated as zombies!
Give it to me!

Women and psychiatry
mirror of society
Women and psychiatry
long ‘Hystory’ of suffering

NO MORE NICE GIRLS
won’t smile no more, won’t hide no more
we won’t be quiet like before
won’t be polite, no, we’ll be rude
we won’t behave like a good girl should
no more nice girls – no
no more nice girls – no
won’t move aside, won’t walk in line
now we’ve made up our mind
won’t cross my legs, won’t shut my mouth
we will speak up and speak out
Trouble is coming, chaos ahead
we show no mercy, we don’t forget
you reap what you sow and you’re out of luck
we arose from the flames, time for payback
no more nice girls – no
no more nice girls – no
No guilt, no shame!
We refuse to, to be blamed!
We won’t take this, anymore
Watch us fight back, hear me roar

THEME SONG
Oh vagina dentata
Vagina dentata!
Vagina dentata!

DISILLUSION
Endless illusions and promises unkept
This is not what it’s meant to be, reflection of society
I fled from the same sort oppressions I meet here
It’s hard to question hierarchy within your own community
you’re no different from those you despise
you’re the same as those you criticise
you’re no different from those you despise
you’re the same as those you criticise
Resisting injustice and questioning ourselves
Making our ideals true, they’re not merely theory
Can we do things different, can we at least try
While building an alternative, we’re shining to society
are we different from those we despise
are we the same as those we criticise
are we different from those we despise
are we the same as those we criticise

ON THE RAG
I’m bleeding a river
I’m bleeding an ocean
red is my rage
I could move a mountain
it’s flowing in waves
it’s like a tsunami
when I’m on the rag
best don’t come near me
i’m on the rag
i’m on the rag
BETTER WATCH OUT – OH
DON’T TURN YOUR BACK
i’m on the rag
i’m on the rag
BETTER WATCH OUT – OH
DON’T TURN YOUR BACK
there’s power in pain
and strength I can feel it
this blood is my own
but I no longer need it
this passion, it’s pouring
it colours dark red
like a scorned woman’s fury
don’t make me mad
i’m on the rag
i’m on the rag
BETTER WATCH OUT – OH
DON’T TURN YOUR BACK
i’m on the rag
i’m on the rag
BETTER WATCH OUT – OH
DON’T TURN YOUR BACK
i’m on the rag
i’m on the rag
BETTER WATCH OUT – OH
DON’T TURN YOUR BACK
i’m on the rag
i’m on the rag
BETTER WATCH OUT –
DON’T TURN YOUR BACK

A LAS BARRICADAS
Negras tormentas agitan los aires
nubes oscuras nos impiden ver
Aunque nos espere el dolor y la muerte
contra el enemigo nos llama el deber.
Alza la bandera revolucionaria
que del triunfo sin cesar nos lleva en pos
Alza la bandera revolucionaria
que del triunfo sin cesar nos lleva en pos
¡A las Barricadas! ¡A las Barricadas!

AMPLIFIED
Oh no! I never had so much fun
Shouting through the megaphone
Our voices are being amplified
Together our power is magnified
I am starting to realise
(come on – raise your voice)
we need to get organised
(come on – make a stand)
figure out what it means to be free
(come on – raise your voice)
living in solidarity
(come on – make a stand)
Oh no! I never had so much fun
And the revolution has just begun
there’s no going back anymore
nothing will be like it was before
I am starting to realise
(come on – raise your voice)
we need to get organised
(come on – make a stand)
figure out what it means to be free
(come on – raise your voice)
living in solidarity
(come on – make a stand)
on the stage we’re singing
on the barricades we’re fighting
on the streets we’re running
not knowing where we’re going yet

ROOM
I don’t know where I should go anymore
there’s no place where I feel safe and at ease
i’m so tired of watching my back
it’s a battle that goes on every day and night
when will I ever be left alone
is there a place where I’ll feel at home
I don’t know who I can trust anymore
strangers in the street or loved ones I know
I’m so tired of feeling helpless
I don’t believe that a man will save me
violence is like a viral disease
easy to catch but hard to heal
I need some peace
I need some rest
I need some understanding
I need a room of my own
I need some peace
I need some rest
I need some understanding
I need a violence-free zone

YOUR TIME HAS COME
The streets are empty
You’re all alone
I’m here to tell you
Your time has come
I’ve got my army
Armed to the teeth
now you will suffer
Now you will bleed
endless nights of fear
you will break and you will cry
the dawn of sorrow is near
you won’t dare to look us in the eye
terror, fear
get me out of here
shadows fall
we won’t let you go
harpies are haunting you
following you for the rest of your life
amazons are watching you
waiting, armed with arrows and knifes
terror, fear
get me out of here
shadows fall
we won’t let you go

THEY TRIED
hand me the key to unlock the doors
help me to get rid of these chains
we need a hammer
we need to fight to be free
They tried to pull my strings – like a puppet doll!
They tried to chain my legs – to keep me under control!
they’ve taken everything away from us
but i’m awake now and I see
the struggle goes on
freedom does not come for free
They tried to pull my strings – like a puppet doll!
They tried to chain my legs – to keep me under control!
they made the cages comfortable
so we would not resist
this gold is a trap
it keep us blinded, pacified
They tried to pull my strings – like a puppet doll!
They tried to chain my legs – to keep me under control!
They tried to seal our lips
they tried to break the protest
they tried to keep us in line
they tried they tried to

I DECIDE
you trust me with a child
but you won’t trust me with a choice
I’m desperate, I’m screaming
but you won’t hear my voice
it’s my body – I decide
it’s my right – I decide
it’s my choice – I decide
what about my life?
the church and the government
enforce a ban on abortion
they try to control our wombs
but we make our own decisions
it’s my body – I decide
it’s my right – I decide
it’s my choice – I decide
whatever happens inside
we demand – reproductive freedom
we demand – free contraception
we object – forced sterilization
we object – objectification

SAUDADE
I’m tired of all this
you have to stop sucking my energy
in a markable gliss
believe me or not, I’m drowning and I’m rot
This is a goodbye
I’m tired of all your lies
patience is over
i need a makeover
I’m not born to help you
and to guide you through your life
try to learn it by yourself
take care and pay the price
This is a goodbye
I’m tired of all your lies
patience is over
i need a makeover
this is the point of no return
I won’t take the chance to conform
Love and care are over
I’m overwhelmed and torn.
This is a goodbye
I’m tired of all your lies
patience is over
i need a makeover
Saudade! Saudade!

SHE’D RATHER BE A BITCH
She’s not waiting for you to kiss her
She wants to be left alone
she’d rather be a bitch
she loves to be a dyke
she’d rather be a ballbreaker
than call herself your bride
She’s not waiting for you to tease her
She’s not here for your entertainment
she’d rather be a bitch
she loves to be a dyke
she’d rather be a ballbreaker
than call herself your bride
So walk walk walk away
you should walk walk away
yeah, walk walk walk away
there’s no reason for you to stay
She’s not waiting for you at all
She can do just fine without you
she’d rather be a bitch
she loves to be a dyke
she’d rather be a ballbreaker/all single/a spinster
than call herself your bride
So walk walk walk away
there’s no reason for you to stay
walk walk walk away
she won’t miss you anyway
go! go away – go! go away
go! go away – go away!

FREE PUSSY RIOT
Free Pussy Riot! Never be quiet!
Free Pussy Riot! Never be quiet!
They sing aloud in the streets
(they) criticise authority
(they) occupy the squares and church
(they) oppose patriarchy
Free Pussy Riot! Never be quiet!
Free Pussy Riot! Never be quiet!
They mask themselves with balaclavas
(to) conceal their true identity
(it) doesn’t matter who they are
they could be you or me
Free Pussy Riot! Never be quiet!
Free Pussy Riot! Never be quiet!
(But) now they have been arrested
(they’ve) been accused of blasphemy
(we) call for solidarity actions
(they) should be set free!
Free PUSSY RIOT!
They’re inspiring girls world wide
to use their music as a weapon
they scare the ones who are in power
their performances are direct actions

PRIVILEGED
You don’t see it
you don’t notice
because it doesn’t affect you
and ignorance is bliss
I don’t want you to speak
I don’t want you to say anything
this time you’ll listen up
just be quiet and take my word
you don’t realise your privilege
y’ don’t get remarks if you’re not that pretty
of course you can go anywhere you please
and poverty is not your reality
You don’t see it
you don’t hear our cries
because you think it’s not you
you’re not the one who’s terrorised
I don’t want you to speak
I don’t want you to say anything
this time you’ll listen up
just shut up if you don’t mind
you can afford to pay the dentist
y’ don’t get treated like you’re a baby
and if you speak they’ll listen to you
y’ don’t even know how your life is easy
You don’t see it
you don’t care
because it doesn’t hurt you
but oppression is everywhere
I don’t want you to speak
I don’t want you to say anything
this time you’ll listen up
just be silent and you’ll be aware
you’re not taught to be scared at night
y’ don’t get harassed by the cops when you’re out
and you can hold hands with your lover
you’ve already won when the game is not over
not over (you say that we can’t)
not over (but we’ll sabotage your plans)
not – over
