Slaughtered by the hands of a butcher
The hands of the butcher were the hands of a "doctor"
And these are the golden days that you want to bring back?

Making it illegal won't make it go away
The rich will fly to far off lands, the poor will stay and pray
That their back alley abortion is clean and safe

You can't make it go away, so why endanger womyn's lives?
Because the issue here for you isn't life...
IT'S CONTROL! Control of what we do and say
BUT YOU'LL NEVER GAIN CONTROL-CONTROL-CONTROL

Is to value life, to move a factory to,
The place that you can most easily fuck those laboring for you?
That isn't what I call a high value on life

And yet that is the policy of those on the right
Who back the brainwashed Jesus jumpers with the cash flow for the fight
But we won't let you control our lives

We're not gonna be, herded like your flock of sheep
I value life more than anything...
And your false morals, can't do a thing to brainwash me
I'LL NEVER BE YOUR'S-YOUR'S-YOUR'S

And there's no justice, in a system,
that's run by greedy old men, who want to control our lives
There's no justice in a system,
that's run by greedy old men, who want to control our lives

You're not gonna control our lives anymore...

    General CommentI love the first verse when it is talking about pro-choice stuff...after hearing those lyrics how could you still want to outlaw abortion? Anti-Flag can really put the essence of their political and social beliefs in songs very well.

    General CommentThis song is my favourite Anti-flag song. The lyrics are clear as to what it means and so there isn't any point in talking about em.

    General CommentMany people who are pro-choice seem to feel a need to be apologetic or ashamed of it. Anti-Flag is right on target here.
