Troubled

lyrics

When you wait for consent
Not for me to fight you off
When you disregard her dress
And hold account for your own thoughts
When those she knows the most
Give her the least to fear
When the only cause is rapists
And victim blaming disappears

When we start intervening
And you check your privilege
Then I’ll stop screaming

When she can speak her mind
Without an acid burn
When the rules on my body and life
Are only my concern
When the honour’s in her courage
Not being killed as property
When it’s not just “the way it is”
So we can live strong and free

Is it too much trouble for you to change?
Is it too much trouble to challenge others?
Your inconvenience aside,
This defines our lives.

We’re troubled.
So we’ll be troublesome.

To live free and safe
Rule our own lives and satiate
Our potential, our will
Our right to fight (to grow, to be)
So we fight still. Go!

Be troublesome
Until we’re intervening
And you check your privilege
Then I’ll stop screaming
