about

"Stagnation. Old social conventions and regression. Expressed with a funky rhythm"

lyrics

The central destination
Or the root of your confusion
Is vain
A gentleman's intuition
To keep the woman in the kitchen
In place
An old form of hierarchy
Keep your sideburns trimmed exactly
Lobe length

So take a seat, sir
& give your shoes a shine

They made the rules imposed on us
& we go along because we feel we must
In shame
I don't remember consenting when I was born

& throw out all the ingrates
Nestled in a far away place
In camps
& forget it every happened
That's the way it always has been
In books

So take a seat, sir
& give your watch a shine

They made the rules imposed on us
& we go along because we feel we must
In shame
I don't remember consenting when I was born
It's a closed-before-it's-open race
& the public record is hidden away from U
It's been that way since I was born

A woman's intuition
To keep herself inside the kitchen
Where safe
