Name of Song: Those Rhythms that irk you

Controlling their bodies,
So common in life,
Mothers with children
sadly sometimes make strife.

Promoted in movies
and TV alike,
Women controlled
To satisfy spite.

Show it enough,
Say it time after time,
People get used to
those scars in our mind.

Chorus
Rhythms that irk you
Into numb states of mind,
There are rhythms that do that,
Sadly, time after time.
Some don’t even notice,
So gradual the fall,
Becoming states of mind
that can make you feel so small.

Have you felt controlled,
Did you hate what you felt,
Control can be done right
And you don’t need a belt.
Talk to your children,
Be nice when you ask,
You’ll be surprised
at how easy a task.

Children are spirits,
They’re not fully grown,
But they’re eager to learn,
And they do want to know.

They lost their last lifetime,
All those family and friends,
Now they’ve got this new body
And they’re trying to just blend.

Children need help,
To come to grips with their life,
They’re feeling confused,
Don’t add to their strife.

Women need love,
Not controlled like a slave,
They’re not really weak,
And they have things to say.

Their bodies are different,
They can make a new life,
Their rhythms can move us,
So much more than the strife.

Controlling those bodies,
We forget who’s inside,
There’s always a spirit
that would rather not hide.

Into numb states of mind,
There are rhythms that do that,
Sadly, time after time.

So gradual the fall,
Becoming states of mind
that can make you feel so small.

Control can be done right
and you don’t need a belt.
Talk to your children,
Be nice when you ask,
You’ll be surprised
