about

"Too" is about they ways in which women and feminine-identifying folks compress themselves for their masculine counterparts. We quiet down so they can speak up; we shrink our bodies to give them more space; we suppress our pain to bring them comfort. It is about the sacrifices we make, many times at our own detriment, to make their lives more comfortable and pleasant, and about finally acknowledging that our space, time, voices, and bodies are important too.

lyrics

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
