A song of protest against "heartbeat" bills, regulating women's reproductive rights in spite of the U.S. Constitution.

Lyrics

You had your way against my will; then shame & guilt kept my voice my voice still
Unfit to speak or tell a soul I’d been ripped in two where I once was whole
I broke away from your grip yet I still feel your hand silence my lips
My red bandana got left behind - keep it, I don’t need the remind

My body, my voice; my life, my choice
Keep your laws off my womb. There just isn’t room
Don’t try and take my voice away - I won’t be silent, not today

Now that night I live again as you declare your ‘legal win’
Your self-righteousness be damned; I won’t give up the life I planned
You ban support or relief for the life you caused to be
Then flaunt your strength but have no will, and hide behind misguided bills

My body, my voice; my life, my choice
Keep your laws off my womb. There just isn’t room
Don’t try and take my voice away - I won’t be silent, not today

You care not for the babe or me; I see through your hypocrisy
“No favors I ask for my sex; but your foot belongs not on my neck”
Raging women take to the streets against these laws of men’s deceit
Make good trouble - we won’t go back to metal hangers and back alley hacks

Our bodies, our voice; our lives, our choice
Keep your laws off our wombs. There just isn’t room
Don’t try and take our voice away - we won’t be silent, not today
Don’t try and take our voice away - we won’t be silent, not today
