Antony and the Johnsons: 'Cut the World'

Liquid Architecture

The music of experimental indie band Antony and the Johnsons combines rich melody with strong political and gender analysis. This video is the title track of their new album. It contains some violent imagery.

The lyrics are:
for so long i’ve obeyed that feminine decree
i’ve always contained your desire to hurt me
but when will i turn and cut the world?
my eyes are coral, absorbing your dreams
my heart is a record of dangerous scenes
my skin is a surface to push to extremes
but when will i turn and cut the world?
