Chumbawamba Rape Lyrics

[Spoken word piece:]
Leaving at 11:00, walking past your windows
see the kitchen, full of television??
men who grow up in silence, need a voice
old and ordinary, she didn't understand...
Logic was simple, based upon reason
a nice girl wouldn't be out alone
SOME GIRLS GET WHAT THEY ASK FOR
this family we're nice girls
blocked in by marriage,
secure in his home,
BUT NEVER FREE..
They rape us in the courts
where the victims go on trial
rape us with their culture, promises and smiles.
Rape us with their wars
to the victor goes the prize
rape us with big business, security and lies
They take away our dignity
and sell us plastic sex
take away our choices and leave us no respect.
Rape is hurt men, hurting women
calculated violence not uncontrollable lust.
Rape's a power assertion
from the press to the street
selling papers, selling products -
packaged sex, packaged meat.
