    Lyrics - Don't Silence Me (activate caption for lyrics in video)

    Don't Silence Me




    big boy plays around
    holds you down
    you don't make a sound
    oh, please make him stop
    but I don't wanna lose my job
    oh, oh, don't silence me

    what if they say you lied
    felt obliged
    crossed a line?
    too late to ask for help
    they’ll say ‘she brought it on herself ’
    oh, oh, don't silence me
    oh, oh, don't silence me

    and take your hands off my sister
    didn't you hear her say NO?
    step away from her, mister
    I think it's time for you to go

    small town
    people talk
    just shake it off
    and take a walk

    law man
    hangs around
    the bullies of the playground
    oh, oh, don't silence me
    we’re all complicit
    and this is how we do business
    hey, hey NDA -
    now I've got nothing more to say
    oh, oh, don't silence me
    oh, oh, don't silence me

    and take your hands off my sister
    didn't you hear her say NO!?
    just step away from her, mister
    i think it's time for you to go

    you can't buy my silence
    cos I'm not for sale
    and I'm no longer buying
    no matter how inconsequential
    powerless and small
    you try to make me feel …

    so take your hands off my sister
    didn't you hear her say NO!?
    step away from her mister
    i think it's time for you to go

    now it's time to make it stop
    now you know your time is up
    ritual humiliation
    power grabbing situations
    take your hands off my sister
    step away from her mister
    now it's time to make it stop
    now you know your time is up
