lyrics

Oh my body's a vessel for living
not an object to serve your desires.
Doesn't tell you a damn thing about me
still you needlessly scrutinise.

Oh my body's a vessel for living
and I'll do with it what I decide.
Be it bare my thick thighs or walk home late at night
I'm not asking for men to abuse it.

Why do you insist to dismiss
when you tell me you're such a liberal man?
How can you disregard patterns of patriarchy
holding the world in your hands?

Meritocracy's the perfect scam.

Oh my daddy won't give me away
cause I'm not something he ever owned.
Where is the place for white at a wedding?
How's my innocence linked to his honour?

Why do you insist to dismiss
when you tell me you're such a liberal man?
How can you disregard patterns of patriarchy
holding the world in your hands?

Why do you insist to dismiss
when you tell me you're such a liberal man?
How can you disregard patterns of patriarchy
holding the world in your hands?

Meritocracy's the perfect scam.

about

Bayou Melbourne, Australia

Melbourne band Bayou weave together cascading guitar lines, noirish vocals, eerie female harmonies and propulsive drumming to create a sound that's haunting, hypnotic and dirty all at the same time – a fuzzed-out missive from some enticing underworld.
