Sunday 03:29
I waited in line and when I got to the front I bowed my head and crossed my arms no blood no body I’m a sinner and everyone could see my lovers would be proud of me He touched my forehead whispered words into his hands he blessed me there instead I was there to seek but I still felt so far from God when I took my seat Sunday, Sunday the congregation sings their songs I don’t know the words I pray, I pray for selfish things for selfish things I should have confessed I had my sins I had my chance but I was scared to death I’ve done foolish things their burden is so heavy and I want them off of me Sunday, Sunday Gazing out the painted glass sitting in my pew I pray, I pray but I don’t know to who

Too 04:09
I’ve made myself smaller shrunk my body to make space for you but I need space too, I need space too I need space to move I’ve made myself quiet silenced every thought that wasn’t soft but I have anger, I have anger I have anger too  I’m wasting away for you Everything it’s all for you And that’s what you want isn’t it? Take my body, take my spirit too  I became a piece of meat to give you something good to eat but I feel hunger, I feel hunger I feel hunger too Painted on this perfect face ugly women have no place but I get tired, I get tired I get tired too  I’m wasting away for you Everything it’s all for you And that’s what you want, isn’t it? Take my body, take my spirit And that’s what you want isn’t it? You take our bodies, want our spirits too   You’ll bring me back from the dead just to kill me again  I held back my own tears bottled up my pain to comfort you but I need comfort, I need comfort I need comfort too I wore white most everyday because you say it suits my grace I’m not your virgin not your angel not your silent muse

Clean & Fair 05:25
Oh my god I was so in love with you and now I’m not Get in the shower with me Wash these feelings off of me I can’t sleep I just lay awake at night praying for release Get in the shower with me Wash exhaustion off of me While you dream I search your face and envy how you sleep so deep and sure Desperately I try to find the will to sacrifice I had before I feel pain every time you touch me every time you say my name Get in the shower with me Wash resentment off of me Let me wash your hair I will take such care I will leave you clean and fair I can’t breathe I am trapped beneath the pedestal you built for me get in the shower with me wash devotion off of me please, please When love was new You hung my drawings on the walls and said they looked like truth now I draw you with every line appears a face I’m less connected to Let me wash your hair I will take such care you can lay me bare and say your final prayer kiss my lonely mouth and make love to my doubts then I will leave you clean and fair You ask why It never occurred to you that I could change my mind Get in the shower with me then dry me off and leave me be

How Much 04:59
Turned on its side my view of you leaving my life I loved you so, but no I couldn’t be your wife My beautiful once perfect man perfect no more and now my cheek is pressed against the cold bathroom floor  And I can’t get up, because when I do you will be gone, and I will miss you How much of a man do I need men to be? How much of a man do I need men to be? Hands rough and strong you used them right, I felt them wrong Teeth sharp and straight you bit my skin then made me wait  You wore the watch, so you kept the time you held me close, and I told you lies How much of a man do I need men to be? How much of a man do I need men to be? Wrong for me, belong to me You showed me love with diamonds and gold but luxury things just make me feel old lust and desire, they laugh and they taunt 'cause you were the man they told me to want How much of a man do I need men to be? How much of a man do I need men to be? How much of a man do I need men to be? How much of a man did I need you to be?

Invited 03:04
Don’t press your lips to the hollow of my throat unless you’ve been invited Don’t rest your hand in the curve of my back unless you’ve been invited Just because you want me doesn’t mean you can have me no, you can’t have me Don’t pull me close and make me feel dirty unless you’ve been invited Don’t kill my name to call me your baby unless you’ve been invited Just because you adore me doesn’t mean that I love you no, I don’t love you no, look what you’ve put me through Don’t stroke my hair or breathe in its sweetness unless you’ve been invited Don’t whisper yes in my ear from behind me unless you’ve been invited You demand my time you commandeer my space but you can’t have the smile withheld from my face Don’t use your eyes to devour my body unless you’ve been invited Don’t take this dress off of my beautiful body unless you’ve been invited  Don’t touch me I’m free, I’m free

Worship Me 03:31
My lips are full, my skin is soft my hair is blonde, and my breasts are ripe My legs are long, my cheeks are pink my eyes are wide, and my touch is fire Get down on your knees, worship me Beg me, beg me please, my love isn’t free  You want a piece, you want a piece you want a big, big piece of me You want to live your fantasies you want to find belief in me  Get down on your knees, worship me Tell me what you see, bask in my glory  Tell me what you see, bask in my glory Beg me, beg me please My love isn’t free  You'd love to bathe me tenderly run holy water down my spine You’d better pray, go pray to god ask for his help to taste this wine  Get down on your knees, worship me Lay down at my feet, cleanse yourself for me Lay down at my feet, cleanse yourself for me Beg me, beg me please My love isn’t free  My lips are full, my skin is soft my hair is blonde, and my breasts are ripe I have a strength you’ll never know I hold your life between my thighs  Get down on your knees, worship me I’m the air you breathe, you belong to me
7.
Don’t you think I’d love to rest? Close my eyes and sleep again? But I’m awake now, and I can’t unsee all of the rope I had wrapped around me but I would love to Don’t you think I’d love some peace? I’ve been fighting tirelessly! To lower my fists and unclench my hands to take a deep breath and feel good again yes, I would love to Don’t you think I’d love to trust? Surrender myself to love? If I could be held without second thoughts without any fear that he’ll take what he wants To feel a man’s arms around my body without questioning if I’m truly free I would love to Don’t you think I’d love to cry? To let someone dry my eyes? But there’s no one here, I’m all by myself and sadness can’t hurt if it isn’t felt And so I turn to anger instead I left behind blue and now I see red But I can’t keep up with anger’s demands I’m becoming as weak as they say I am I would love to ooh… I would love to rest

Lush Life 04:12
I used to visit all the very gay places, those come what may places where one relaxes on the axis of the wheel of life to get the feel of life from jazz and cocktails The girls I knew had sad and sullen gray faces with distant gay traces that used to be there you could see where they'd been washed away by too many through the day twelve o'clock tales Then you came along with your siren song to tempt me to madness! I thought for a while that your poignant smile was tinged with the sadness of a great love for me Yes, I was wrong again, I was wrong Life is lonely again, and only last year everything seemed so sure Now life is awful again, a troughful of hearts could only be a bore A week in Paris should ease the bite of it All I care is to smile in spite of it I'll forget you I will, while yet you are still burning inside my brain Romance is mush stifling those who strive I'll live a lush life in some small dive And there I'll be while I rot with the rest of those whose lives are lonely, too

about

An 8 song concept album centering around themes of femininity and womanhood, written and produced by Canadian singer-songwriter Lindsay Kay. The album was made top to bottom by an entirely female-identifying team. Every role, from studio musicians to engineers to album artwork design to mastering to PR, was filled by a woman. The album explores themes of seeking faith, the ways in which women make themselves small to make space for the male counterparts, toxic masculinity, the goddess-like power in being a feminine being, consent, and more.
