about

Many people these days are social justice warriors... well, I am a social justice bard. It is way past time for all of us citizens in the states to start raising our voices and sharing our concerns and ideas. This is my way of doing that, and I hugely encourage you to find YOUR way of doing that. We have to remember that as the people - the power is in our hands. One way we can take it back is by refusing to be silenced. Please refuse to be silenced, today and every day. Take care of yourselves friends.

lyrics

why are you telling me lies, why would you lie lie lie
i won't get any sleep tonight, all my dreams will be full of lies

i can't take the disrespect anymore, i'm intelligent
i can look up facts
i can't believe they put a man like you in charge of anything
it's terrifying
i won't take the disrespect anymore, when you judge me
i'll just judge you back
life is short and you are short sighted and i've better things
to do than argue with you

why are you telling me lies, why would you lie lie lie
i won't get any sleep tonight, all my dreams will be full of lies

i can't take the disrespect anymore, i'm a human
not a defective barbie doll
i can't believe how you can get away with treating women
like toys of convenience
i won't take the disrespect anymore, if you grab me
i will make you pay
i'm a new york girl and i've been forced to strategize
against men who lie lie lie

think we don't know what we're mad about
you're gonna find out you will find out
first they came for everyone who didn't
look like them, pray like them, love like them

well i will see your ugly lies
and i will raise you one informed population
passion, information
tell me who runs the nation
guess what you have awakened with your lies

for every single lie, one more person will get organized
i won't get any sleep tonight, way too woke to buy your lies
