promiscuity lyrics – ani difranco

promiscuity

promiscuity is nothing more than traveling
there’s more than one way to see the world
and some of us like to stick close to home
and some of us are columbus
what can i say?

nature always gets her way
nature always gets her way

and seeing the world through another’s eyes
is like busting a window in a house of lies
and in the end you make up your own mind

and there’s wide open sp*ces
and little cornered off places
and check ’em out
check ’em out
take your time

how far is too far?
how much is enough?
you gotta test this stuff

i mean how you gonna know
what you need
what you like
till you been around the block
a few times on that bike

i mean how you gonna know
who you are
what you feel
till you feel a few things
that just don’t feel real

and promiscuity is research and development
evolution begs embellishment
and baby you’re a star

and you got two invisible eyes on society
and when society gets cruel
make like you’re nature’s tool
which you are

and nature always gets her way
nature always gets her way

and monogamy is that carnival trophy you earn
when you throw that ball into that urn
it’s somewhat dumb luck, somewhat learned
and you just know when it’s your turn

and honesty is the hardest part
yeah honesty is the highest art
and honestly i myself just started
and eureka i’m less broken hearted

i mean how you gonna know
what you need
what you like
till you been around the block
a few times on that bike

i mean how you gonna know
who you are
what you feel
till you feel a few things
that just don’t feel real
