Germaine Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I do think that women could make politics irrelevant
By as a kind of spontaneous cooperative action
The like of which we have never seen
Which is so far from people's ideas of state structure
And vital social structure that seems to them like total anarchy

And what it really is, is very subtle forms of interrelation
Which do not follow sort of hierarchical pattern
Which is fundamentally patriarchal
The opposite to patriarchy is not matriarchy but fraternity

And I think it's women who are going to have to
Break this spiral of power
And find the trick of cooperation
