lyrics

Do I understand what’s real inside your skin?

The world comes at us in such impactful determining ways
The shapes it takes unfold depending on the body you hold
You are
Rational, you are powerful, you are unemotional and you are strong,
You are strong?

You are object of desire, your shapes for his gaze to grasp
Stories depicting standards, inflicting images to adhere to, live up to
And perform

You are cute, blond, woman, white,
You may pass unnoticed, out of my focus,
You are the norm, you conform to my standards of safety

And you, you must stop here,
Undress, explain again, again shamed, blamed, confined,
defined

Do I understand what’s real inside your skin,
Do I understand what’s real inside your skin
Sharp, edgy, kind or bold
Based on what?
