The universe is female
Eluding the science of men
You sway and you swagger
And your neat little dagger
You're gonna blow it again

Prove her existence in everything
The soul of her rivers and stones
Her acquiescence in everything
Her essence, her presence, her bones

Lust and law take the masculine
Ambition and war take the boys
I pin the tail on the alpha male
A little man making big noise

Prove her existence in everything
The soul of her rivers and stones
Her acquiescence in everything
Her essence, her presence, her bones

It's not the engine or chassis
It's not the weapon or length
Your war dance I guess got this place in this mess
But there's something that's stronger than strength

Prove her existence in everything
The soul of her rivers and stones
Her acquiescence in everything
Her essence, her presence, her bones

A metaphor is a goddess
A king that's fit for a queen
The opposite side of that armored old hide
I hope you know what I mean
Oh yeah

    General CommentJust listened to this song tonight for the first time in a while. I love Kilbey's feminist bent in this song and I love how he makes fun of men's sexual equipment, violence, etc. BTW- I'm male and I don't think everything male is bad, just that as a gender we certainly are not above reproach.
