about

Mannish Girl
This is the “See Me Human” track.The heart of this song faces all the discrimination which exists out there. I wanted to break it down to reveal how much more similar we are than different.

lyrics

MANNISH GIRL

Is everything alright out there? Is everything really alright?
I have a question: Can you look me in the eye?
Can you look him in the eye? Can you look her in the eye?
Can you look he / her in the eye?

I’m black, I’m gay, I’m muslim and I’m afraid,
I’m disabled, and dyslexic, I’m asian and hispanic,
I’m a foreigner, I’m a lesbian, I’m syrian and homeless,
I’m a christian, and I’m aW.O.M.A.(child)N.

Joints and sinews, bones and blood, muscles and veins,
We’re all the same!

We all live, we all die, we all drink, we all eat, we all dream,
we all defecate, we all think, we all breathe, we all long,
we all desire, we all hope, we all hope, we all hope to get treated equally!

We all have 5.5 liters of blood owing through our bodies and it’s pulsing ...

AND THAT’S NOT TO MENTION PLAIN OLD ROCK AND ROLL WHICH BLACK SWIFT KEEPS TUCKED AWAY IN THEIR TRAVELING BAGS, TO BE USED AS NEEDED. ... more
