The lyrics to this song reflect on the facts regarding domestic violence in the United States and our feelings about masculinity and the assigned gender roles of the patriarchy. Every nine seconds, a woman in the United States becomes a victim of domestic violence. It is up to us to change this. For more information: http://www.padv.org/documents/Statistics_DV.pdf
"These eternal divisions, incandescent parallel lines. Running from our fathers of always, that trample the mothers of now. Patriarch, you sit before me; father, you show me our tradition. A lineage of violence/a lineage of commodification. These binaries reinforce the construct of separation. These binaries prescribe what is of man. Placate the legends of always. This construct is illusory. Your definition is self-made. Your dominance is nothing to me. Your dichotomy places the golden crown on your temples. The subtlety in our discourse poisons us still. If this is what it means to be a man, I reject this. For the woman every nine seconds. I won’t be part of this fucking system anymore. I reject this. I reject you."
