porn song

the band GIRL PROBLEMS has a great new song called THE PORN. think you'll enjoy it -- and maybe even recognize yourself in the lyrics...

The Porn

before the internet came out
I used to get my work done
I wasn't the type to stand in line
in some greasy grimy store
sure I looked at a penthouse
or flipped through a hustler
but always felt kind of wrong
that was then
but things have changed
since these websites came along


the porn the porn awakes me in the morn
by afternoon I'm forlorn cause I've been watching too much porn
I'm torn I'm torn
cause believe me
I coulda sworn
I intended to read of mice and men
ended up watching porn


can't remember what I did years ago
with all that extra time
guess I went to yoga
did community service
went shopping for art supplies
maybe I checked in on elderly neighbors
went to church taught sports to kids
but now that I bought a macintosh
my life has hit the skids


with scorn with scorn
would you look at me with scorn
would you look at me with scorn
if I told you I'd been watching porn
I'm torn I'm torn
believe me
I coulda sworn
I intended to read grapes of wrath
but ended up watching porn

now I know it's an industry built on exploitation
and most of the girls were abused when they were young
the videos, they're just a crude expression
of misogynistic and violent fantasies
but as I try to slip
quietly past my computer
and on to the sun-dappled street beyond my front door
I swear it whispers so seductively
come on baby
just...one more


you see all the beauties walkin down the street
they're all so hot
but all so out of reach
you wanna ask them out but you're paralyzed
by low esteem, doubt and fear of being chastised
it only makes sense to hurry back home for a beer
and watch clips of these lovelies with ankles behind their ears, yeah
