1. SONG of the DAY _ Out of Range ~ Ani DiFranco - from “Living in Clip" (1997)

    just the thought
    of our bed
    makes me crumble like the plaster
    where you punched the wall beside my head
    and i try
    to draw the line
    but it ends up running down the middle of me
    most of the time

    boys get locked up in some prison
    girls get locked up in some house
    and it don’t matter if it’s a warden
    or a lover
    or a spouse
    you just can’t talk to ‘em
    you just can’t reason
    you just can’t leave
    and you just can’t please ‘em i was locked
    into being my mother’s daughter
    i was just eating bread and water
    thinking
    nothing ever changes
    and i was shocked
    to see the mistakes of each generation
    will just fade like a radio station
    if you drive out of range

    if you’re not angry
    you’re just stupid
    or you don’t care
    how else can you react
    when you know
    something’s so unfair
    the men of the hour
    can kill half the world in war
    make them slaves to a super power
    and let them die poor

    i was locked
    into being my mother’s daughter
    i was just eating bread and water
    thinking
    nothing ever changes
    and i was shocked
    to see the mistakes of each generation
    will just fade like a radio station
    if you drive out of range

    just the thought
    of our bed
    makes me crumble like the plaster
    where you punched the wall beside my bed
    and i try
    to draw the line
    but it ends up running down the middle of me
    most of the time

    baby i love you
    that’s why i’m leaving
    there’s no talking to you
    and there’s no pleasing you
    and i care enough
    that i’m mad
    that half the world don’t even know
    what they could have had

    i was locked
    into being my mother’s daughter
    i was just eating bread and water
    thinking
    nothing ever changes
    and i was shocked
    to see the mistakes of each generation
    will just fade like a radio station
    if you drive out of range
