about

This album is focused on calling out the bullshit oppression that I have personally experienced. So much fucking solidarity with anyone dealing with oppression right now, you're fucking awesome - I love you x

Also I aim to make my music as accessible as possible, so if you cannot afford £5.50 please message me on www.facebook.com/caseytufnell and we will sort something out!!

Info about the term kyriarchy:

The term kyriarchy was coined by Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza in her 2001 book, Wisdom Ways: Introducing Feminist Biblical Interpretation. In the glossary, she defines kyriarchy as:

a neologism…derived from the Greek words for “lord” or “master” (kyrios) and “to rule or dominate” (archein) which seeks to redefine the analytic category of patriarchy in terms of multiplicative intersecting structures of domination… Kyriarchy is best theorized as a complex pyramidal system of intersecting multiplicative social structures of superordination and subordination, of ruling and oppression.

I would love to thank the AMAZING Lex for the artwork, they are also a non-binary vegan. You can find their artwork here: www.aiws.lt

The recording of Crush was an amazing experience, the music engineer randomly brought in a shaker and a bongo drum and it really added to the whole feel of the song. So thank you for that, Simon Dodd.

Also would like to thank Isi so much who recorded the rest of this EP. Her studio is in a converted barn and we had many awesome conversations about the EU and about veganism!

Track Name: Fuck You
one day I had this man come up to me he said oh honey why are you smoking
I said fuck off it’s none of your business of course i didn’t really say that it just repeated in my mind
so i just smiled and said politely oh haha oh please
and he just shook his head and said to me ‘smoking is ugly’

well fuck you for making my worth on beauty
fuck you for saying i’m wrong to be angry
fuck you for making me smile politely
about the issues of the world that affect half of the population

one day i had this boy come up to me he said oh why aren’t you wearing anything i said
why are you taught this its none of your business what clothes i choose
but of course i just smiled and said politely i’m wearing clothes that is enough for me
but i walked away so heavily and pulled my top up and pulled myself down

well fuck you for making my worth on beauty
fuck you for saying i’m wrong to be angry
fuck you for making me smile politely
about the issues of the world that affect half of the population

then i had these guys drive by, they didn’t even try to look me in the eye
they just shouted slurs and honked their horn at me so i stuck up two to them and showed them to be sorry
but of course i didn’t do that, i just looked down to the floor and pulled on my hat
put my headphones on, blasted it out, tried to laugh it off politely

well fuck you for making my worth on beauty
fuck you for saying i’m wrong to be angry
fuck you for making me smile politely
about the issues of the world that affect half of the population

and then when i said to him i dont like this gin it tastes a little funny it tastes a little thin
he just laughed and shook his head at me and said i’ve had too much to drink
went upstairs, heard some people fuck, wanting to leave then saying please, but of course he wouldn’t take my answer wouldn’t take my pleads oh noo

well fuck you for making my worth on beauty
fuck you for saying i’m wrong to be angry
fuck you for making me smile politely
about the issues of the world that affect half of the population

fuck you (multiple times)
fuck you for saying i’m wrong to be angry
about the issues of the world that affect half of the population
Track Name: Crush

Because I am my own person I am my own
I am my own spirit i am my own
and you cannot crush me

Because I am my own person I am my own
I am my own spirit i am my own
and you cannot crush me
you cannot change me
change me
you cannot change me
you cannot change me
you cannot change me

so don't go down alone
because i don't like being called a hoe
a hoe a hoe a hoe
don’t leave yourself alone
because i don’t like picking up the phone

(many) 'ohs' (some) ah ya ya's

Because I am my own person I am my own
I am my own spirit i am my own
and you cannot crush me
you cannot change me
change me
you cannot change me (some) yeahs
you cannot change me
you cannot change me
you cannot change me
Track Name: You Say Meat Is Murder
You say meat is murder
Well so is dairy
I can hear their screams
Calling after their young
You say meat is murder
Well so are eggs
Male chicks aren’t meant to be bred
So they’re grinded up alive

It doesn’t matter if its humane
Its just a label
There’s no free range
It’s all a lie to get you to buy into the mass murder
Of the beings
I’ve seen what you’re seeing
Don’t buy into this lie

You say meat is murder
Well so is leather
Wearing the skin of another being
I’ve never heard of something so disgusting
You say meat is murder
Well so is wearing wool
Don’t believe the myth we’re all
Told, it’s their fur, we don’t need it

It doesn’t matter if its humane
Its just a label
There’s no free range
It’s all a lie to get you to buy into the mass murder
Of the beings
I’ve seen what you’re seeing
Don’t buy into this lie

You say meat is murder
So is honey
You say well it’s fine they were gassed
The point is it’s supposed to be okay to be gassed
You say meat is murder
So is captivity
Of all of these innocent beings
This isn’t the way they’re spose to live

It doesn’t matter if its humane
Its just a label
There’s no free range
It’s all a lie to get you to buy into the mass murder
Of the beings
I’ve seen what you’re seeing
Don’t buy into this lie

2 billion heart beats stop
2 billion dreams are forgot
2 billion animals murdered every week
for a 20 minute meal

It doesn’t matter if its humane
Its just a label
There’s no free range
It’s all a lie to get you to buy into the mass murder
Of the beings
I’ve seen what you’re seeing
Don’t buy into this lie
Track Name: Running Out
you often ask me casey what is wrong
you often assume my gender even now singing this song
you often speak to me like i’m still a child with no dignity
well dignity i have
patience i’m running out

im running ouuuut x2

you often tell me my gender excites you
you often act like i should be at another zoo
you often think that it’s okay to ask ignorant question
well answers i have
patience i’m running out

running ouuuuuut x2

you often make out you’re the victim when its your privilege
you often say transphobic things that normalises it
you often say speciesist, racist or other sexist things
well forgiveness i have
patience i’m running out

running ouuuuut x2

so don't tell me how to feel
about the oppression that i receive
don’t tell me that you find my gender interesting
bc my gender isn’t for you to find interesting

my gender isn’t for you to comment on
my gender isn’t for you to laugh upon

i’m running ouuuuut
i’m running out x5
my patience is running out
Track Name: Ignorance
Dont tell me not to be angry
My emotions are valid
Dont tell me to sit their quietly
My voice should be heard, even if this world aint ready

Your ignorance is not an ecxuse
For the abuse that I face everyday
Your ignorance is not a way
You can undermine me
Your ignorance is not an excuse
For the abuse that I face everyday
Your ignorance is not a way
You can undermine me

Stop touching me, without my permission
Stop patronising me, using your discretion
Stop gaslighting me, I’m not yours to light up
Stop mansplanning me, i know it’s not ALL FUCKING MEN

Your ignorance is not an excuse
For the abuse that I face everyday
Your ignorance is not a way
You can undermine me
Your ignorance is not an excuse
For the abuse that I face everyday
Your ignorance is not a way
You can undermine me

You better stop x2 and dont u dare reply with this
What you gonna do about - well imma tell you what im gonna fucking do about it
You better stop x2 unless you want this nasty ass trip
We’re all coming together finally after ur atrocity standing up against this shit

Your ignorance is not an excuse
For the abuse that I face everyday
Your ignorance is not a way
You can undermine me
Your ignorance is not an excuse
For the abuse that I face everyday
Your ignorance is not a way
You can undermine me
