IT'S NOT FOR ME

IT'S NOT FOR ME

I might just walk the streets
late at night where men do meet
uh uh uh uh what a joke it's not for me

I might just bind my feet
see how I feel after a week
it's supposed to be sacred uh uh not for me

I might just let you cut pieces off me
it's supposed to be an honor in places obsene
uh uh uh uh uh uh it's not for me

I might just like many in war get me a gun
take up hatred on another man's son
uh uh uh it's definitely not for me

I might just scream insanity lies
at another girl's way of life
uh uh uh uh uh it's not for me

I might just give a casual smile
at the opposite sex I do in style
you got no right to touch uh uh it's not for me

I might just share my piece of mind
yeah intentions for more peace in life
better not try to kill it in me uh uh it's not for me

I might just say out loud
you got no right to bring me down
keep your whipping to yourself uh uh it's not for me

I might just wear some fancy clothes
something I feel good in now
so don't dress me down uh uh it's not for me

I might just do whatever
it's my body it's my world
don't try to take this away uh uh it's not for me

it's not for me it's your strife
it's not for me I own my own life
I got a clear head on my shoulders now
and your bad take on what you think
It's dehumanizing and insane !
it's not for me
it's not for me
so don't you break
the universal law
it's not for me
