GENDER GENOCIDE

Lyric and Music by Rayko & Frank Kilpatrick and Airain Balen and Arif Hodzic

You came on so helpful  

You said you’re my friend

But then you played with me

Just to reach your own end

“Unless you go along”

Was exactly what you said…  

“You’ll never work in this town again”

You left many of us dead

 

Hey you – You Mighty Moguls:

Such Big Big Men in this Town

You degraded, hurt us – all of us

You bullied us and beat us down

 

Fakes! Frauds! Cheaters! Operators!

All you do is lie

Gender Genocide!

 

Monsters

Of the Universe

You used us all

You had your fun

Made us your pussycats

You hit and run

When you make them rich

Everyone looks away

Hey you – You Mighty Moguls:

Such Big Big Men in this Town

You degraded, hurt us – all of us

You bullied us and beat us down

 

Fakes! Frauds! Cheaters! Operators!

All you do is lie

It’s Soul Suicide!

Gender Genocide!

The time has come!

It’s come undone

Like a web unspun 

The antidote 

To the predator’s venom

Sex… should never be a weapon 

 

Nobody would believe us

They mistreated us

With their million-dollar 

PR machines

And lawyer teams 

To wreck our dreams

 

But the whisper networks are blowing up

Cuz more of us keep showing up

And the ones that took advantage

Are phantoms in plain sight

For all to see

In their own worst light 

 

Those of us who wore the pain

Beneath our fame

And bore the plight

Not a thing to gain

 

Release our shame

And join the fight

Join the fight!

 

Fakes! Frauds! Cheaters! Operators!

Vipers! Parasites! Monsters!     

All you do is lie…

Soul Suicide!

Gender Genocide!

 

Fuck you! You Mighty Moguls

Such Big Big Men in this Town

You degraded, hurt us – all of us

You sucked us in and spit us out

 

Gender Genocide!

Soul Suicide!

Gender Genocide!

WORDS WITH MEANING

 

Singer Rayko steps up to fight abuse with Gender Genocide – an Anthem for women today.

 

It is impossible to view the news without hearing of women (and others) being sexually exploited in the entertainment industry, in government, at school, at home, or at work. Singer/Songwriter Rayko of Lolita Dark has responded with Gender Genocide – a rousing call to support female empowerment.

 

While the abuse of women by men in authority positions is both terrifying and hurtful, today more and more of us are emboldened to tell our stories – with our demands for change more powerful than ever. (#MeToo, indeed!) And now that fight has an anthem –  thanks to Rayko, frontwoman of epic rock band Lolita Dark and, Franki K Music, her collaborator and co-writer. Today they announced the release of Gender Genocide, their new single, tackles these issues head-on; the song's cut-to-the-point lyrics and intensity are clearly based not simply on observation, but also on personal experience.

 

“I'm known as an emotional conduit and this topic comes straight from the heart,” commented Rayko. "I hope Gender Genocide will help to boost spirits and empower women to know they don't have to accept mistreatment. And that they can stand up and fight and win. The world is changing; no one who has been abused needs to remain silent any longer.” 

Gender Genocide is intended as a popular anthem to be used by organizations and individuals committed to empowering women. The song is available for Radio Play, Artist Performance, Film, Television and Commercial Licensing. (DJ Note: "Clean" version – also available.) Published by A-1 Tunz (ASCAP).
