The Liberal Canon

The Root Of All Evil

I’m fed up with the mass subjugation in this nation.

Fed up of the crap, and I’m done being patient

I cannot have another girl raped in my country

Need them safe in the country, this is hate for the dummies

Who just don’t understand where the problem really lies

The source of the problems, what we need to realize

The assaults are nothing but the tip of berg

Implications of the issue make me rage and be stern

The fact is that, all of us really, need to shower

Attention, on this issue, it’s the need of the hour

I’m a political poet pointing to our bloody power

All the girls, I know that the system isn’t ours

And I’m sorry for the trauma, I am sorry for the pain

I am sorry for the fact we ain’t treated as the same.

Livin’ in delusions, patriarchy is ingrained

Which makes them oblivious, the victim gets the blame

I don’t know what it’s like to be living with some fear

Assuming that it’s scary when a man comes near

That fact that you even have to feel this emotion

They cover up assaults, and seal the commotion

I can’t deal with the notion that it’s the victim’s fault

One should always do what he or she wants.

It’s on you if you engage in any form of assault.

Sexual in nature and you’re the one who’s wrong

I speak from some privileges, I know I don’t belong

To the ones who feel it everyday, but still I wrote this song

I tell you all I could, only through this small verse

Humans were a blessing, humanity’s a curse.
