about

Record-a-Thon 2 was a 3-day event that took place in Bloomington, IN and was organized by the MISSFITS Music & Arts Collective. It happened June 10-12, 2016 at Primary Sound Studios.

The goal of RAT2 was to provide a safe and empowering space for the creative expression of and collaboration between gender minority people, including women, trans and non-binary folks. RAT2 operated outside the confines of the male-dominated music scene. Each track on this album was written and recorded by one or more different gender minority people.

Track Name: Shakey - "Flesh & Limb"
you wake up so defeated/ drag yourself through life and work
remove that mask and wonder what’s it worth?
staring at that mirror/ every time you choke
who the fuck’s this person gazing forth?
don’t you dare ignore ‘em/ don’t you shut your gates
there’s a world out there, they need to know this face

it’s not right...
it’s in your eyes. no, it’s not right.
you’ve gotta take this vessel/ find yourself a cliff to climb
if change is coming then it’s taking it’s damn time

you swallow every moment/ spit it up again
rip open your body/ and dive right in
you tear apart the pieces/ build it bit by bit
hold it all together with a fragile pin
but don’t you lose that fire/ don’t you get comfortable my friend
you will use this day to blaze a trail ahead
pledge an oath to this body/ that you’re/ made to reside in
revolutionize this mess of flesh and limb

you see a light...
it hits your eyes. you see a light.
you’ve waited for this moment, for what feels like your whole life
now it’s here and you aren’t wasting any time.
