Bis — Listen Up lyrics

What once was a riot is now a slogan
It never really talks about us
Misappropriation of real anger
You never really thought about power
Listen up

This is the real power
So listen up doubters
This is the real power
So listen up

I don't want to hear boys sing about girls
In the way that makes them an enigma
It's just cause they can't talk and say their feelings
No wonder we are stuck in the dark

This is the real power
So listen up doubters
This is the real power
So listen up

Did you hear a word I said (listen up listen up listen up yeah)
Wise up boy, time's at it's end (listen up listen up listen up yeah)

You had it, you lost it, so do it again
You never really thought about us
I am a boy, but I'm a feminist
It's not a contradiction in terms
Listen up

This is the real power
So listen up doubters
This is the real power
So listen up

D'you know it's offensive to hear you say that
You never really thought about us
I'm sick of the sexists, but I'm not scared
I'm a boy but at least I'm comfortable

This is the real power
So listen up doubters
This is the real power
So listen up

Did you hear a word I said (listen up listen up listen up yeah)
Wise up boy, time's at it's end (listen up listen up listen up yeah)

Because...
The power
To riot
Is anger
United
