LYRICS: My domain my temple and my territory my pleasure Cut cut cut it out My desire my right to choose or to refuse this encounter Cut cut cut it out My agency that non consensual contact tries to take from me Cut cut cut it out My fucking mind you undermine my sense of self you pressurize Cut cut cut it out Its my body and my choice It's my body My fucking choice My power my psyche and my energy my decision Cut cut cut it out My passion could never be ignited by such aggression Cut cut cut it out My liberty my body as the base of my autonomy Cut cut cut it out I need to see us make progress towards accountability Cut cut cut it out Its my body and my choice Its my body My fucking choice My lips my thighs my wrists my mind My lips my thighs my wrists my spine My hips my neck my tongue my mind Touch me again and I'll fucking kill you Touch me again and I'll fucking kill you Touch me again and I'll fucking kill you Touch me again and I will fucking kill you
"Thank you to everyone that submitted footage for this video! This song grew out of my own experiences of sexual violence, both within and outside of the punk community and from our commitment as a band to speaking about consent whenever we get an opportunity. We hope that this video project has opened that platform up to more people that share the same or similar experiences and that this collective project has been in some way empowering! The protest chant MY BODY MY CHOICE is becoming more and more relevant as political attacks on women and other marginalised bodies increase. Hopefully this video can be just one small way of helping us remember that there are many of us, and together we are powerful." - Ren.
