Old White Dudes Are LIVID Over This Grimes Parody
Start writing a post

Years ago I told the internet I could alter the lyrics for "Kill V. Maim" by Grimes to make the song a political anthem about Roe v. Wade. Well I finished it. I just needed enough time. I wrote this a few years ago, some of it is from the point of view of a baby experiencing the aftermath of the Roe v. Wade ruling being overturned. At least, I think so. I'm not very informed about this stuff. The lyrics are structured as they appear on genius.com. Below is the video so you can follow along. The music video is visually engaging, but you need to focus on the audio for right now. I left enough space for advertisements to appear throughout, Mr. Odyssey.

Grimes - Kill V. Maim www.youtube.com

[Verse 1]

I think I see a light, time to leave the hole

I hope the outside world isn't too cold

Cause I'm only a baby, and I'm inside a lady

Wait a second I don't like this

Nobody's feeding me

Maybe it's because they weren't ready for me?

Some Republicans are cruel

And they say abortion is too

[Pre-Chorus 1]

G-O-P dudes claim to help humanity

But when we asked for help you pretend Christianity

G-O-P please practice what you preach

Your acts betray the bulk of your non-secular beliefs

[Chorus 1]

Eh, it's Roe V. Wade, it's Roe V. Wade, oh

Eh, it's Roe V. Wade, it's Roe V. Wade, oh

Eh, it's Roe V. Wade, it's Roe V. Wade oh eh

Why'd you overturn it, why'd you make me write this down?

Cause I'm only a baby, now outside a lady, oh

Cause I'm feeling sad now, Pence is glad now

(Why'd you overturn it, why'd you make me write this down?)

[Verse 2]

Help me clear this up, I don't understand,

If every life is sacred why not lend a hand?

Because that would be nice

But Republicans be like

[Pre-Chorus 2]

"I hate my life, let me make you miserable

Force my greedy rhetoric and make it sound political

My tax money should be used for good

Help the rich pay even less, defund planned parenthood"

[Chorus 2]

Eh, it's Roe V. Wade, it's Roe V. Wade, oh

Eh, it's Roe V. Wade, it's Roe V. Wade, oh

Eh, it's Roe V. Wade, it's Roe V. Wade oh eh

I do not know enough about the topics which I write

But I know just one thing, it's disgusting, oh

Pro-lifers are old dudes, who want to control you

(I do not know enough about the topics which I write)


Oh, abortion is the right

To prevent unplanned pregnancies

Safely at the state level

Roe, V. Wade was alright

But you overturned it

What was the purpose?

How do you sleep at night?

[Chorus 3]

Eh, it's Roe V. Wade, it's Roe V. Wade, oh

Eh, it's Roe V. Wade, it's Roe V. Wade, oh

Eh, it's Roe V. Wade, it's Roe V. Wade oh eh

Abortions are still legal, but just not in every state

If we had better healthcare, wait I won't go there, oh

Medicaid will not provide, thanks to Henry Hyde


My P-O-V was at first a baby

It was hard to do because I'm not a baby


S-H-O-U-L-D B-E L-E-G-A-L!


In conclusion, this is what "Kill V. Maim" might sound like if it were about Roe v Wade. Some syllables are an exact match, others are exercising their own free will. It makes sense to me in the shower. Show this to one of your college professors, they might appreciate it. Tell them you wrote it and snag some extra credit, but feel them out first to see if they hate abortions.

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.

This Simple 7-Step DIY Face Mask Combines Safety — And Sustainability

Instead of studying like I intended on doing today, I made a face mask for some reason and thought I'd share how I did.


If you were looking for a simple way to make a mask, I am happy to share how I personally make them. I have a pretty small face in general, so I prefer having my homemade ones so they fit better. This is also a great alternative to just throwing away any clothes! Before starting, you will need to make sure you have fabric, thread, a needle, and pins; if you have a sewing machine, you obviously could use that instead of hand sewing it.
