Property Of The State is collaborative effort I spearheaded with my friend Ray Prim and a posse of other talented folks. Written in the wake of attempts to subvert and repeal Roe V. Wade, released on the day of Women's Marches around the world, January 21st, 2017.
Don't tell a woman that her hands are tied
She has the fortitude to decide for herself
For herself

You prop yourself up on your sense of morality
You try to take control on feeble technicalities
Old habits are dying hard
You keep your business in your own backyard

Ain't it a shame?
Would you want someone to treat your mama this way?
Ain't it a damn shame?

A woman's body is not you business
It isn't property of the State
You're not speakin' for nobody's best interest
You just want someone to regulate
Well
Your power, your voice
Her body, her choice
Don't second guess the way it always was
Mama knows better than you think she does

Don't tell a woman what she has to do
Don't try and strip her from her right to choose
It ain't your right
It ain't your life
You're standing holy on an island that's sinking
You're talking, talking when you should be listening
It isn't up to you so shut it down
Her body ain't a battleground

Ain't it a shame?
Would you want someone to treat your mama this way?
Ain't it a damn shame?

A woman's body is not you business
It isn't property of the State
You're not lookin' for nobody's best interest
You just want someone to regulate
Well
Your power, your voice
Her body, her choice
Don't second guess the way it always was
Mama knows better than you think she does

Ain't it a shame?
Ain't it a damn shame?

You don't cure the disease by treating the symptom
Take a look at what the bigger picture's missing
Song Comments

Eve's Special Reserve
Ainjel was one of the stars of this site when I first joined and it's so exciting that she has a new song, especially a protest song of sorts on the day of the great women's march. This song is spectacular, it goes right to my top station. The vocals are beyond compare, and it has a blues rock element too. Oooh it's sooooo good....


Over The Moon
So relevant afer the extraordinary womens marches yesterday ALL OVER THE WORLD against the disgusting mysogyny and backward step for the planet and all who live on it represented by the new president of the USA. More women came out to express their views than came to his inauguration.


WARRIORS FOR CHANGE
Fantastic tune great timing, Scott loves it too!


INDIE SPIRIT
Fantastic tune great timing, Scott loves it too!
