Don't take it 

Don't take it from her

All that you made her

Or should I say, reduced her to

All that she is

In your eyes

All that she's become

Only to please you 

All for you

Don't take that from her

 

And don't you blame her

Don't blame her

For what you stole

Don't accuse her

For being what you are

You don't blame the dead people

For being murdered

So don't tell her it's her fault

For it's all because of you

You, slave under biological instincts 

You, who praise the patriarchy

Don't you dare taking it from her

 

Let her be free

Let her be a bird, dancing in the skies

Let her be a flower, singing in the fields

Let her run naked through the streets at night

And please, I'm begging you

Don't take that from her 

Don't take that
