It's a proper song with lyrics and things.
This one is about a political problem that really aggravates me.

They sit at their long tables

Their long dark wooden tables

They sit in chairs so high and mighty

With white beards and dark suits

They write down the laws they govern

They write down my fate, my future

They write down what's yet to come

They write down yes and no

And I don't think you understand

No, I don't think you've noticed

That I am not your property

This body, it belongs to me

And I am not for the action

And I am not for the doing

And I am not for taking life

But I am, I am

I am for the choice

Yes, I am for the choice

Yes, I am for the choice

Yes, I am for the choice

Yes, I am for the choice

They rally and they shout, they mutter

They hurt, they blame, they maim, they kill

And guess who gets the worst of this

Oh, guess who gets the shorter stick

Not the perpetrator, but the victim they are ruined

'Cause the law is not on their side

But to the laws they must abide

And I don't think you understand

No, I don't think you've noticed

That I am not your property

This body, it belongs to me

And I am not for the action

And I am not for the doing

And I am not for taking life

But I am, I am

I am for the choice

Yes, I am for the choice

Yes, I am for the choice

Yes, I am for the choice

Yes, I am for the choice

Guess who I belong to, it's not you

Not you

So don't you dare tell me what to do

In matters that don't concern you.
