Sleater Kinney – #1 Must Have lyrics

Bearer of the flag from the beginning
Now who would have believed this riot grrrl's a cynic
But they took our ideas to their marketing stars
Trying to buy back a little piece of me
(Everywhere you go they say "Hello,
Weren't you the one that sold your soul? "
Every time you leave the say "Oh no,
Why did you ever let us go? ")

And I think that I sometimes might have wished
For something more than to be a size six
But now my inspiration rests
In-between my beauty magazines and my
Credit card bills

I've been crawling up so long on your
Stairway to heaven
And now I no longer believe that I wanna get in
And will there always be concerts where
Women are raped
Watch me make up my mind instead
Of my face

The number one must have is
That we are safe
(Everywhere you go teenage
Is the rage
Inside your pants
And on the front page
Everywhere you go it's die or be born
If you can't decide then
It's your own war)

No more
And for the ladies out there I wish
We could write more than the next
Marketing bid
Culture is what we make it
Yes it is
Now is the time
To invent
