lyrics

Thanks for watching CNN
Thanks for watching anything
Get yourself the coldest drink
and thank yourself for joining in
the verdict must be coming down the judgement of the fine young men
their futures to be set in stone
the scholarships they might have owned
HONESTLY, Honestly, Honestly , Honestly, Honestly
zoom in on his young wet eyes the pouches dark to symbolize
the sleepless nights beneath the weight,
the weight and weights they subjugate
close up of their nervous hands, their mother’s lips that quiver hard
chair backs soaked with chilly sweat
not far from where they’re watching tape
HONESTLY, Honestly, Honestly , Honestly, Honestly
The most important thing is fun
The most important thing is done
HONESTLY, Honestly, Honestly, Honestly
From Uniform to uniform
HONESTLY, Honestly, Honestly, Honestly


Stubenville, Ohio, We Howl!


They keep her name inside a vault and try to make it seem her fault
they push her from within the walls
and keep her isolation full
she has her own identity
Honestly, Honestly, Honestly , Honestly, Honestly
Society is absent here
in its duty to protect
more quick to judge a woman’s choice*
than listen for a woman’s voice
she has her own identity
Honestly, Honestly, Honestly , Honestly, Honestly
I’d like to have her name inscribed and all survivors of my time
and to forget a single one
it feels like shame to be in sun
she has her own identity
Honestly, Honestly, Honestly , Honestly, Honestly
not one more if I could help
and if I don’t then what to do
to speak when fear is in my spine and resist being mute and blind
she has her own identity
Honestly, Honestly, Honestly , Honestly, Honestly


Stubenville, Ohio, We Howl! (4X)

*These words are written in disgust at the idea that women bear any responsibility in a situation of assault, we all believe strongly that survivors of assault do not have any "choice" in the constant attacks upon their body's and their thoughts.
