she’s an average American woman
full of questions, dualities, confusion
says and thinks she don’t know what’s wrong or right,
but in her heart she knows the truth from the lies
she’s a mother and her kids so love her
but she no longer has time to be a good lover
marked and saggin’ from bearin’ and raisin’
she knows her body’s no longer worth cravin’
the girls on tv are fake, an illusion
it’s so wrong to need that to feel like a woman
she wants to get back what she lost with her youth
but how would she feel if her body weren’t truth?
she knows earth will die from so much pollution
can’t afford “green” so she lives in delusion
she wants to help the worlds hunger and strife
instead her family’s fed at Wal-Marts low price
she knows it’s wrong to add to the landfills
but what can she do with all the diapers and spills?
resycaling’s expensive, laundry takes time
it’s all an excuse, she knows she’s committing crime
“This world is so screwed!” she cries in her heart
can she teach herself and kids to make a new start?
she feels way to weak, too tired, and too dumb
so she goes about her brainwashed life feeling numb
