Mike Marsh on Rape Culture: “Water and Wire”

Given the recent surge in libertarian feminism and discussions of rape culture, here is “Water and Wire” — a track off Sunbeam, Mike Marsh‘s debut solo album (under the moniker Paper). I play bass for Mike. Deal with it.

Mike also plays drums for these cats called The Avett Brothers. Check them out, I hear good things.

Is this shameless? Perhaps. Relevant? Indeed.

Either way, enjoy.

Lyrical excerpt:

Water meets wire
On the floor of a factory
Where women and men
Are both flesh and blood
Her hands are shaking
And his eyes are what’s making them
As her long daily struggle begins

SOS! You may need it!
I confess
There’s no damsel in distress
Just send it now
In case she’s alone
So you’re singing…

Uh oh!
