about

"Hey Lady" speaks to women shining in every role in society. It encourages the idea that sex work be seen as legitimate work, as valuable work, like that of a mother, health care provider, or artist.

lyrics

I won't let them say that it's wrong / cuz I am that I am / and ain't it sweet how we ache? / won't let them say that I'm wrong / boy, I'll show you wrong / hey lady you're shining / let your moon rise lady / you're shining shining / light all leading / your heart your home / bright and calling / night fallen lady / you're shining / in these meat-covered bones I'm a ghost and I drive it / hum and moan of our ghosts as they're colliding / my time imma sell it / take yours and do what / as long as your happy I swear I couldn't give a fuck / abolitionists in this patriarchy go home! / give women the power then leave us good and alone / cooperation has been forgotten lately / I'm a lady of the night / I don't need your saving / lady you're shining... / see they'd have you believe that it's all for your good / cuz surely with freedom you wouldn't act like you should / we can't be trusted with action over hope / or when's the best time that our seed be sown / for millions of years we trusted the group / then culture came in and now we're told what to do / cerebral cortices grow / but so does empathy / nature and nurture can exist in peace / hey lady... / who are we? / all we see is light in mirrors / you're light in my mirror / who are we? / all we see is light in mirrors / light / lady you're shining... / all y'all ladies you're shining shining / won't let them say that it's wrong / cuz I am that I am / and ain't it sweet how we ache?
