lyrics

pinned through to the floor
writhing in pain
no one can hurt me
like my body can

***
california paid sick leave
includes preventative days
so why do i feel so much shame?
so why do i feel so much shame?

for staying in bed
when i can tolerate the pain
when i can just
work right through the pain

but why do i think i deserve to?
you don't think anyone else does,
what's so special about you?

can i survive the way he died?
run out the clock on my own time

and i can't think of stress
as a health hazard
'cause i'm too busy
being stressed on being healthy

but why do i think i deserve to?
you don't think anyone else does,
what's so special about you?

it's a joke that men do
conquer inherently
now i'll try to conquer
my own body

the punchline is when
we succeed

and blame that shit on you

***
giving in, i'll give myself that gift
but what's a gift from me?
