"Tom Boy" as written by and Caroline/visser Van Dijk....
From where I stand, i can see
They've got the upper hand of me
Reminds me of this world at last
Simply changes much too fast for me

And when they call out, will I hear them
And when they fall out, will I see them
This yellow light, on the crowd
And colours way to loud to see
Reveal their drive, we could change it
Try to rearrange it

They call me a tom boy and I let them
Cause only a tom boy could forget them
And simply change it
They call me a tom boy and I love it
Cause only a tom boy could stand above it
By simply changing

    My InterpretationI think it's about gender roles. Mousy women never make it to the top, yet a "tomboy" is able to rise above because she acts more "manly" (or how society thinks men should act).
