Traditions ring hollow, traditions ring true
Billions still following but they haven't got a clue
Turn a blind eye to the origins
Another time and place
Where meanings changed with religious trends and fucked up social ways
Your path has been chosen
Don't just blindly accept it
The need for power and the privilege to own another human being
A lifetime of holy matrimony
Symbolized by a ring
Prearranged and re-arranged
Prepare for life in these chains
Do you take this man to be your master?
"I don't" is not the answer
Reproductive slave machine is all this ritual was meant to mean
Do you take this woman to be your wife?
"I do", now sentence her to fucking life
Tradition hides lies, traditions hold truth
Do we really need this paper to show us the proof?
Do we really want to continue to give our daughters away?
In a stupid game that used to mean rape, torture and slavery
Rituals created for us in a day and a time
When we had no choice what we did with our bodies or lives
Bought and sold, they robbed us of all our pride
From birth they owned us until we died.
