lyrics

Lights out
Under a veil of darkness
Haze of alcohol
Feel your eyes
Following me
My senses stir

I’m the prey
You’re the hunter
Anonymous
Not responsible

No doesn’t mean convince me
I said no, doesn’t mean convince me
No doesn’t mean convince me
I said no, doesn’t mean convince me

I’m done
With feeling like a piece of meat
I’m human too
It’s time
This normalised behaviour
Is put to sleep

I’m a person
You’re a predator
Identified
Held responsible

No doesn’t mean convince me
I said no, doesn’t mean convince me
No doesn’t mean convince me
I said no, doesn’t mean convince me

Sexualised then demonised when we don't reciprocate
Sexualised then demonised when we don't
(I know my mind)
Sexualised then demonised when we don't reciprocate
(I know my mind and I won’t play)
Sexualised then demonised when we don't

I know my mind
I know my mind and I won’t play
I know my mind
I know my mind and I won’t play

How many times do I have to tell you to leave me alone?
Didn’t you hear me the first time?
I said no
