"King Of Intimidation" as written by Alanis Nadine Morissette and Glen Ballard....
For you they live in a quiet monastery
For you they wear whatever you want them to as long as it is short
They count to ten when you tell them how to drive
And when they're afraid they let you speak for them

All hail the king of intimidation
Obeyer of Christian behavior

For you we wax; but still, you check our legs
For you we chew our nails if we had any but fake ones to do it
We contradict him temporarily
And it was somethin' about how you talk down to me

All hail the king of intimidation
Obeyer of Christian behavior

The role of compromises for the family you now want some
There's only so much we can do to make you rest assured

I am single
I am weary
You're just jealous
You're just confused
You're just hungry
You're in sin now
You're not happy
You are petty

All hail the king of intimidation
Obeyer of Christian behavior
He does not know what he has wrongly done
Forgive his ignorant behavior

You are tortured
You are captured
You are busted
We were silent
You were tested
You did better
You are lonely
Was it worth it?

    General CommentPretty self-explanatory song I think. An exploration of ddisgusting gender stereotypes and the complicity of both men and women in perpetuating them. I love this song, I wish she had recorded and released it. She played it in concert a lot between Jagged and Supposed.
