Here are Shut Up, Get Up, and So.

Shut Up
Say that word one more time
Say that word like it's yours not mine
Say that word, don't think twice
Say that word like you've got the right

You drop that word like it's hot
You drop that word- you know it's not
You say that word in my house
Nah keep that word in your mouth

You brought your mouth, not your mind
You brought your mouth, not your mind
You brought your mouth, not your mind
You brought your mouth, not your mind

Say that word one more time
Say that word like it's yours not mine
You say that word in my house
No, keep that word in your mouth

You brought your mouth, not your mind
You brought your mouth, not your mind
You brought your mouth, not your mind
You brought your mouth, not your mind


Get Up
Get up off the floor, motherfucker, 'cause it's not about you any more
I don't give a fuck what's in your blood or in your belly, get up out that door

You've become a bore, motherfucker, since you started shooting up so much more
I don't give a fuck what's in your blood or in your belly get up out that door

Get up off the floor, motherfucker, 'cause it's not about you any more
You've become a bore, motherfucker, since you started shooting up so much more

So (note: these are kind of earnest and embarrassing so I want to inform you that this song goes by very quickly, and that they are yelled too quickly for you to understand, but they sound tough.)

"Feminism's gonna be your only friend"* when you let the lying to yourself come to and end and the lies you lived inside for so many years come apart inside a flood of other people's tears

so

Leave your shit outside 'cause you don't need it any more now you're safe inside a space with all these open doors and anyone who wants to fuck with you won't even come in- it's just it's privilege and it's bullshit and it's dripping from your skin

so

*Rach yelled this at me once when she was drunk.
