Pornography For Cowards

This song is by Million Dead and appears on the album A Song to Ruin (2003).

Ladies and gentlemen
Please take your seats
Put on your thinking caps on
Now here's a poser for you:
You know sexism
The social scourge of the sixties
Seen as singularly responsible
For a plethora of ills? Well the reaction
After starting well
Has moved from the sublime
To the ridiculous
Through self-defensive actions of the string-vested interests
Please, let's dispense with
Tired fixations
With forms of address and with constant
Of legitimate sexual attraction
With weak accusations
Of inverted discrimination
Because it's getting old, old, old, old

Come on girls
This is weak
Come on boys
Gird up your loins and yes
I'm no qualified social theorist
But I've got me a few ideas
I picked up while I was trying
To be a human being
I'm amazed
No seriously
I'm really fucking awestruck
Leafing through
So called lifestyle magazines
I'm amazed
The beauty industry
Is just the tip of the fucking iceberg
I'm amazed
The prostitution of dignity
For a sense of humour?
I'm amazed
The smallest blows against ignorance
Seen as too much?
I'm amazed
And you're afraid
You're cowering
A bravado
Built on pornography for cowards
