Contravene – Traditions lyrics

Traditions ring hollow
Traditions ring true
Billions still following but they haven't got a clue
Turn a blind eye to the origins
Another time and place
Where meanings changed with religious trends and fucked
Up social ways


Your path has been chosen


Don't just blindly accept it

The need for power and the privilege to own another
Human being
A lifetime of holy matrimony
Symbolized by a ring

Prearranged and re-arranged
Prepare for life in these chains
Do you take this man to be your master?
"I don't" is not the answer
Reproductive slave machine is all this ritual was meant

To mean
Do you take this woman to be your wife?
"I do", now sentence her to fucking life

Tradition hides lies
Traditions hold truth
Do we really need this paper to show us the proof?
Do we really want to continue to give our daughters

In a stupid game that used to mean rape, torture and

Rape, torture and slavery

Rituals created for us in a day and a time
When we had no choice what we did with our bodies or
Bought and sold, they robbed us of all our pride
From birth they owned us until we died
