"You Say" as written by and Adam Pesce Ryan Mendez....
(Acceptable?)
No! Your everyday language is structured to isolate
(Forgivable?)
Yes, but only if you promise
That the next time it won't be the same
That you'll try to listen

(Difficult)
Trails that you will never choose to realize
Hey it's not your life
(Objectify)
It's just a joke now but
How will you treat your wife?
Will you compromise?

You lie, deny your privileges as awareness subsides
These roles are creating walls between our lives

We lose what a woman can be when she can't feel safe because of men like you

And to acknowledge one woman's secret discontent
And not speak against it is an action to repent
I see your fault line but your plates won't move
And when your time comes

We lose what a woman can be when she can't feel safe because of boys like you perpetuate
This hateful myth and pride will not abate

It sinks in!
It affects me more than you care
It affects her more than you care
It affects us all but you don't care!

And I know I'm not innocent but at least I'm trying
And I know I'm not innocent but at least I recognize
No, I'm not innocent but at least I'm trying
I know! At least I recognize
