Was it a date?
Were you forced?
Were you too young to really know the score?
We'll assign certain values
and someone will write it down.
We'll file it away somewhere.
We've got our notes;
we thank you and we'll make sure to write it down.

No one can say what was
No one can say but you
And if no one believes you
And if no one will hear the truth
You can shout it out - louder still -
until they can't pretend you don't exist

They will try to break you
by saying you're faking
They'll shake and pull
but they will never take you down

They will minimize it
and criticize you
they'll lie and lie
but they can never break you down

if they say
"walk it off"
make them walk you off

if they say
"walk it off"
you make them walk you off

Big thanks to Richard Dawkins for being bad at twitter, and doing weird shit like trying to list types of rapes from bad to worse.
