Arroyo Deathmatch
Intro: Fm / Fm / Fm / Ab F# x4

Verse:
Fm
Created the false dichotomy,
Fm
between Lilith and Mary,
Fm
choked out by patriarchy, 
Ab               F#
and told a lie of genetic prophecy,
Fm
f**k your test to see if we fit the mold, 
Fm
witches will scream until our stories are told. 
Fm
born of western cultural fears, 
Ab                 F#
under the boot for ten thousand years.

They’ll hold your head under water and they’ll call you a b**ch, 
       Fm              Fm                    F#            Fm
if you can’t hold your breath it’s you’re a fault you’re a witch, 
       Fm        Fm              F#        Ab
if you don’t succumb to the cold waters and drown, 
                  F#                  
they’ll smear your name [all over this town.]
       Fm           Fm         Fm                 F#          Fm
They’ll hold your head under water and they’ll call you a b**ch, 
       Fm              Fm                    F#            Fm
if you can’t hold your breath it’s you’re a fault you’re a witch, 
       Fm        Fm              F#        Ab
if you don’t succumb to the cold waters and drown, 
                  F#                  
they’ll smear your name all over this town.

Fm Fm F# Fm x2
Fm                  Fm               F#                  Fm
In the streets they call you out and tell you what you're worth 
Fm                  Fm               F#                  Fm
a piece of meat to scrutinize, a commodity since birth 
Fm                  Fm               F#                  Fm
feel the pressure to walk that straight and narrow line 
Fm                  Fm               F#                  Fm
to resist this gendered prison would be your greatest crime 
Fm                  Fm               F#                  Fm
because if you dare to live your life and forget that weight of shame 
Fm                  Fm               F#                  Fm
they'll pull your hair and call you sl*t and submerge your head again 
Fm                  Fm               F#                  Fm
they use your body against you while they hold their bodies against you 
Fm                  Fm               F#                  Fm
until it doesn't belong to you a symbol, object, tool 
Fm                  Fm               F#                  Fm
they use your body against you while they hold their bodies against you 
Fm                  Fm               F#                  Fm
until it doesn't belong to you a symbol, object, tool 
Fm                  Fm               F#                  Fm
they use your body against you while they hold their bodies against you 
Fm                  Fm               F#                  Fm
until it doesn't belong to you a symbol, object, tool
