Song Description

The song is about the abuse transgender women face in sex work and in the prison system.

Lyrics

She lies awake
With a damaged heart
Can't catch a break
Can't get a restart

One bad mistake
Her whole world fell apart
She's the one the world forsakes
Imitates her art

She was looking for the money to afford a change
A client told her that can be arranged
Woo-hoo
He got her in a room in a cheap motel
Didn't take his abuse, so she went to jail
Woo-hoo

After her arrest
They put her with the men
She said I may not have the chest
But I don't belong with them

They didn't honor her request
To be put with the women
They simply left her dispossessed
To endure all their torment

In the human food chain
She knew where she ranked
With a choice so insane
Either kill or be shanked

She was looking for the money to afford a change
A client told her that can be arranged
Woo-hoo
He got her in a room in a cheap motel
Didn't take his abuse, so she went to jail
Woo-hoo
