Endangered Species Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I am an endangered species
But I sing no victim's song
I am a woman I am an artist
And I know where my voice belongs
Verse 2
I am a woman I exist
I shake my fist but not my hips
My skin is dark my body is strong
I sign of rebirth no victim's song
Verse 3
I am an endangered species
But I sing no victim's song
I am a woman I am an artist
And I know where my voice belongs
Verse 4
They cut out my sex they bind my feet
Silence my reflex no tongue to speak
I work in the fields I work in the store
I type up the deals and I mop the floors
I am an endangered species
But I sing no victim's song
I am a woman I am an artist
And I know where my voice belongs
Verse 5
My body is fertile I bring life about
Drugs, famine, and war, take them back out
My husband can beat me his right they say
And rape isn't rape you say I like it that way
Verse 6
I am an endangered species
But I sing no victim's song
I am a woman I am an artist
And I know where my voice belongs
I know where my soul belongs
I know where I belong
