about

"Touch her again and she'll fucking kill you. Touch her again and she will fucking kill you."

Here is our version of the Petrol Girls song Touch Me Again. A song about sexual harassment and sexual violence. I remember my first time seeing them perform this song. Such a powerful performance that sent shivers down my spine. We might think we built a community with punk ethics, that is openminded and treats everyone as equals, but let's not forget our community is just like any other. In the UK there is a legal battle between a well known musician and women who dared to speak up against his actions of sexual misbehaviour. These women, united in Solidarity Not Silence, are facing a defamation case. They chose not to be silent, which means there will be a long and expensive case. Solidarity Not Silence needs all support they can get. One of the women is Ren from Petrol Girls, a band we shared stages with in the past and some of their members we have been friends with for 15 years. That is why we decided to record a cover of Touch Me Again and donate all profits to Solidarity Not Silence. We asked our and their friend Roos to join us and we're thrilled to have her vocals, filled with emotion and anger on board.

Please check out www.crowdjustice.com/case/solidaritynotsilence and see if you could help out by donating money, setting up benefit shows or record a song for charity. We decided to enable the download for a pay-what-you-want price, so it's affordable for everyone. So buy our song and help out Solidarity Not Silence.

lyrics

Her domain her temple and her territory her pleasure
Cut cut cut it out
Her desire her right to choose or to refuse this encounter
Cut cut cut it out
Her agency that non consensual contact tries to take from her
Cut cut cut it out
Her fucking mind you undermine her sense of self you pressurize
Cut cut cut it out

Its her body and her choice
It's her body
her fucking choice

Her power her psyche and her energy her decision
Cut cut cut it out
Her passion could never be ignited by such aggression
Cut cut cut it out
Her liberty her body as the base of her autonomy
Cut cut cut it out
I need to see us make progress towards accountability
Cut cut cut it out

Its her body and her choice
Its her body
Her fucking choice
Its her body and her choice
Its my body
My fucking choice

My lips my thighs my wrists my mind
My lips my thighs my wrists my spine
My hips my neck my tongue my mind

Touch her again and she'll fucking kill you
Touch her again and she'll fucking kill you
Touch her again and she'll fucking kill you
Touch her again and she will fucking kill you
Touch me again and I'll fucking kill you
Touch me again and I'll fucking kill you
Touch me again and I'll fucking kill you
Touch me again and I will fucking kill you
