...for the people in the back...

lyrics

i know you'd like to sell my sons off to the highest bidder
i know you'd like to have my daughters cookin up yr dinners
i know you need my eggs to keep your restaurant up and runnin
but im startin up my own shop and im workin on the funding

my body is not yr commodity
my body is not yr commodity

i know that your ego means more to you than your daughter
sooner kill your own child just to protect your honor
how many more girls have got to be slaughtered
(be)fore you look into the mirror and you finally see the monster

my body is not your commodity
my body is not your commodity

try to put me on a pedestal or in a glass box
determine all my uses and calculate my stocks
i will not waste away tryna service all yr wishes
stop tryin to control me you'll be swimmin with the fishes

my body is not yr commodity
my body is not yr commodity

i know you think that god has got a role for us
got to keep control of us
draft blueprints to designate the shape of us
degradin us
make us feel like we will never be enough
dawn to dusk
im callin bluffs
we saw you fill the gaslights up
preposterous?
you're monstrous
you won't remain anonymous
sorry to report but your metropolis ain't bottomless

my body is not yr commodity
my body is not yr commodity
