Lyrics

1. Ladykillers

It’s a man’s world
It’s a man’s business
How does it feel
To be one of the few?
To be cheerleaders to a revolution
Not what we had in mind to do
Let’s have some credit
Where credit’s due

We’ve been learning how to jump through hoops
And we’ve been learning how to watch our backs
Competing for men till we’re isolated
Holed up in our overpriced cul-de-sacs
But when he’s got you pinned to the bed
Becoming a part of the one in three
The right to vote
Will not set you free

I’m tired of settling for less
I’m tired of hearing I’m too young and you know best
I don’t wanna be a notch on your bedpost
No I will not be impressed by ladykillers

I’ve been thinking about your theory
And I believe you are misled
Does the world look that much different
From the other side of the bed?

I could be de Beauvoir to your Sartre
But is this jealousy innate?
Another nature versus nurture debate

I’m tired of settling for less
I’m tired of hearing I’m too young and you know best
I don’t wanna be a notch on your bedpost
No I will not be impressed by ladykillers

If you’re not above cheating
If you’re not above beating
Then I guess we’re not moving forward

I’m tired of settling for less
I’m tired of hearing I’m too young and you know best
I don’t wanna be a notch on your bedpost
No I will not be impressed by ladykillers


2. Enduring Freedom

I only just fell from the womb all wet and screaming
Now I'm supposed to be a functioning adult
Sometimes I wish that I could crawl back in there
I tell myself it can't be me that is at fault

But you and I, I think we make a good team
You know I'm crazy and you don't seem to mind
So as long as we are both enduring freedom
If I can choose, then I choose you every time

You are the closest thing I have to a home
I need to tell someone the truth
Or suffer epic failure of the heart
This is no science and there is no law or formula
To tell you how to feel, but I think you should know
I'm asking you not to go

I'm not ready to accept that life is not fair
And I'll spend my whole life trying to make it change
Just being here so utterly unlikely
Terrifying, beautiful and strange

But you and I, I think we make a good team
You know I'm crazy and you don't seem to mind
So as long as we are both enduring freedom
If I can choose, then I choose you every time

You are the closest thing I have to a home
I need to tell someone the truth
Or suffer epic failure of the heart
This is no science and there is no law or formula
To tell you how to feel, but I think you should know
I'm asking you not to go

I need to tell someone the truth
Or suffer epic failure of the heart
This is no science and there is no law or formula
To tell you how to feel, but I think you should know
I'm asking you not to go


3. Baggage

Say a prayer for us, Thatcher’s children all are
