A Woman's Right to Choose

from by Alexander Geist

/
  • Poster/Print + Digital Album

    Icon of the demimonde Alexander Geist releases his second single “A Woman's Right to Choose” as a limited edition art poster, illustrated by Sophie Iremonger. Dedicated to war-crimes whistleblower Chelsea Manning, the poster features a line drawing of Manning cradling the body of Geist, in imitation of the Pietà. Notes Geist, “The idea of releasing a single as a poster is part of a continued exploration of the physical remnants of pop culture. What is my identity as a recording artist in the digital age?”

lyrics

Is is so hard to comprehend?
Once I was a woman, now I am your man.
What is so hard to understand?
What Mother Nature gave me, I gave back again.
Don't be so juvenile.
The choice here, lover dear, was never yours it's mine.
The fact of the fiction is this:
I won't wear the body if the body doens't fit.

I'm not forcing myself on anyone.
I'm not forcing myself on anyone.

If I exist it's to resist you
A woman's right to choose
You don't create me when you name me
A woman's right to choose
Cheer me, jeer me, souvenir me
A woman's right to choose
Change is hard, but I am harder

It's true, I travel in a coffin of dirt
An undead pervert in a button-down shirt
A trick, a puzzle a lesson to learn
You ask me "What's your gender", I say "Katharine Hepburn"
And she didn't come from Adam's rib
He came from where all life begins
To take a long walk in these shoes
Up the hill, oh Sisyphus, forever pay your dues!

I'm not forcing myself on anyone.
I'm not forcing myself on anyone.

If I exist it's to resist you
A woman's right to choose
You don't create me when you name me
A woman's right to choose
Cheer me, jeer me, souvenir me
A woman's right to choose
Change is hard, but I am harder

I am sick to death of this particular self
I want another
Yes, I am sick to death of this particular self
I want another

Before you I stand as a self-made man
Built of determination by the strength of his hand
And I shall admit to no regret
The guilt that would bind mine cast inside the oubliette

If I exist it's to resist you
A woman's right to choose
You don't create me when you name me
A woman's right to choose
Cheer me, jeer me, souvenir me
A woman's right to choose
Change is hard, but I am harder
