This Acid Burnt Face

(But) Hold me down you can’t!
I’m gonna show you this black eye
I’m gonna share my words, my memories
Not gonna hide this acid burnt face

All Roads Lead to Kathmandu

You can land a punch in my eye

You can rape me…(but) hold me down you can’t!

Some day you are gonna have to
Really take a good look in the mirror
See and accept what you’ve become.

It’s your reflection, not mine
When you see that black eye
The tears streaming down my face
(as you hold me down, pinned under your weight)

This innocent acid burnt face (is you).

Can you hold the title of ‘The World’s
Most Dangerous Animal.’ Man.

Call me ‘feminazi’ or ‘manhater’ or accuse me
Of playing the victim, I don’t f*%ing care
It’s not a mask I wear, this acid burnt face.

(But) Hold me down you can’t!
I’m gonna show you…
