Just a Girl

Sheís seen for what she wears
for what's beneath the fabric,
Nothing more, nothing less.
She canít stop what's going to happen next,
But that's her fault.

Itís just a regular day for you and everyone else like you.
Just something to do and forget about later.
You can act impulsively,
But it's her and everyone else like her who has to live in fear about that.
Not you,
Nor the ones who make the rules.
The ones without a care in their minds about this are the ones who are in control of her decisions.
The ones who donít need to think about what they wear,
Where they are,
Or who theyíre with,
Are the ones making her think about them.

Sheís living in handcuffs and its as if this is a mockery of her.
Are you just testing her to see if the handcuffs are secure?
That theyíre fully locked?
Donít worry.
They canít come undone.
You wonít let them come undone.

And that's just how it works.
We need to hold your hand.
We need to follow you, the leader.
We need to change ourselves because it's our problem.
We are the scapegoats to the polluted minds of the animals in control of us.

It's our skin, our body,
That we will have to live the rest of our lives with.
But since it's our body, it's our fault.
