Lyrics:

I was done at 16
showin up for class
I was out there
in the ring
learnin how to kick some ass
I was done at 16
using my momma's key
it was all on me
yes it was all on me

weren't no free rides
weren't no IOU's
I pulled my weight
I paid my dues
and I showed up
to enlist
on the first day of recruits
how bout you?
how bout you

I'm my brother's keeper
every chance I can
I pay my taxes
like any working man
and I feel I've earned
my right to choose
you don't get to play God, man
I do
you don't get to play God, man
I do

CHORUS
you get to run the world
in your special way
you get much more
much more than your say
government, religion
it's all just patriarchy
I must insist
you leave this one thing to me

just one thing that a man needs
to be truly free
this is the modern world
and that one thing is money
but there are two things
that a woman needs
control over her own body

yes I pay the price
on top of everything
each month a bill
each month a reckoning
and each seed that dies
I cry and I bleed
so you can't tell me
no you can't tell me

I am a soldier
it's my blood that flows
I'd give my life
so that this tree can grow
you don't know creation
like I know
so you can't tell me
no you can't tell me

CHORUS

I'm my brother's keeper
every chance I can
I pay my taxes
like any workin man
and I feel I've earned
my right to choose
you don't get to play God
I do
you don't get to play God
I do
you don't get to play God
I do
