Serena I was a fan of Cerce and Sisterwives, and this certainly doesn't sound the way I expected based on the sound of those bands! It's very catchy and tackles feminist themes like destigmatising abortion, embracing your sexuality and the importance of consent. Looking forward to hearing what Becca releases next! Favorite track: Just For Me.

Track Name: The "A" Word
My baby loves me, but he told me to behave
I said, “I’m not quite sure what you even mean”
“My parents love you, but please don’t say too much”
“What are you even talking about?”

He said, “Honey, don’t use the “A” word in public…”

I said, “Abortion”
I had one of those
Slip me back under
And take it all out
I said, “Abortion”
I’m not gonna hide
The fact I supposedly “ruined my life”
I said, “abortion…”
I said, “abortion,”
I’m not ashamed

I’m a good girl,
Don’t get in trouble
Sometimes I’m immature, this isn’t for attention
This is my body,
Don’t try to shame me
I hear your whispers, and I’m truly not embarrassed
Shout out to my dad, for giving me his health benefits
I’m only short twenty dollars now

Sure, my recovery was rough
But now I feel better than ever

I said, “Abortion”
I had one of those
Slip me back under
And take it all out
I said, “Abortion”
I’m not gonna hide
The fact I got naughty and had a surprise
I said, “abortion…”
I said, “abortion,”
I’m not ashamed
Track Name: Cheater, Cheater
My baby has kissed a few lips,
Now he only dreams of me
If he ever dreams of another girl,
I’ll murder him in his sleep
I’ll slice him in his sleep

I’m quite sure,
I’m the best thing that’s ever happened to you,
Since forgiving all your sins
You better not cheat again,
‘Cause this time I’ll leave you
This time I’ll leave you dead in the streets
This time I’ll leave you dead in the streets

My darling has wrapped his arm,
Around a broad or two
He’ll hold me tight when I cry their names,
When I scream out their names,
When I moan their names

The shit you put me through,
Has left me all fucked up
The shit you put me through,
Has left me traumatized
I beg of you don’t put me through that again
I beg of you, please be good to me
Track Name: Just For Me
Shut the door, it’s time to make me feel alive
I’m always laying with ghosts
I’ll think about anyone, to prove that I can
That’s how little I care

This one’s just for me
I’m sick of being on my knees
I’m sick of men, doing what they want to me
This one’s just for me

Do it right in the mirror, that’s all that I need
I’ll just gaze straight at myself
It’s not some male fantasy, these are my own
Trust me, I’ve got the right touch

Take the edge off the razor
I know just the things to whisper
No one has to show me
No one has to show me anything
Track Name: Making a Monster
I didn’t mean to fall asleep in your presence
I didn’t mean to fall asleep in your power
I had placed my trust in you,
I thought you were my friend
But you touched me while I slept,
When could I say “no”?

He claims he did it out of love,
I don’t recall saying, “I love you.”
He claims he did it out of “confusion,”
So where does that leave me too?
He took out the best of me,
And brought out the worst of us
‘Cause he touched me while I slept,
I’ll never trust again (I never gave consent)

I didn’t tell a single soul this happened,
But you twisted the truth and told our friends
They’re better than that,
I was never into you
When you touched me while I slept,
That’s the last you’ll know of me

‘Cause I aim to be in control of my own body
You’ll never lay a hand on me…
Track Name: Abusive Habits
I hide a flask in my bedframe, I’ve never told a soul
My arm permanently scarred, from every piece of flesh ripped out with my teeth
Slices in my lip, I’ve been known to let the blood drip
I know the taste of iron all too well

I have abusive habits, but tonight I’ll just sleep
I hate laying alone, but tonight I’ll be fine
I have my thoughts keep me up at night, for now I’ll rest
I’m feeling good about who I am and that’s all I need

I often regret my choices once I’ve calmed myself down
I hate living with these scars, I truly wish I could erase them all
All my toxic thoughts, I’d hate to be contagious
Oh, I swear it’s no longer my choice

So spare me just a night of true darkness
Spare me just a night of these tears
I’ll tell myself anything, to put my mind to rest
This is all on me and no one else
