Will your head ever stay up? Who told you you're better dumb? Why do you suppress the urge to speak? Who told you you're prettier when weak? Who hides behind a society lie?

Will your head ever stay up?
Who told you you're better off playing dumb?
Why do you suppress the urge to speak?
Who told you you're prettier when weak?
Who hides behind a society lie?
Who told you, you can't have your mind?
Who wants to control it by belittling it cuz they fear it?

Why do you spar with your heart?
Why do you reject your body?
Why do you hurt your soul?
Why choose a stranger's words over your own?
Why do you hate being sad and torn when you were never whole?
Who took your voice? Who told silence is the key?
Who told you, you don't deserve to feel complete?

Who told you to surrender your power?
Who told you that's only meant for a man's use?
Who told you it's only okay for him to seduce?
Who told you only he can do wrong with an excuse?
Who told you not to want more?
Who told you, please me or be out the door?
Who told you it's your fault if someone utters whore?
Who told you minimize your worth?
Who told you a myth that went unladylike to intimidate?
Who starts to sweat when you start to dominate?


Who time is it to answer all this but hesitate?
