Lyrics: MARINA – Man’s World

AD

“Man’s World” is the lead single from Marina’s fifth studio album, Ancient Dreams in a Modern Land. The track describes the inequality faced by women and members of the LGBTQ+ community, with reference to climate change and eco-feminism.

MARINA teased the “Man’s World” music video with a visual on Spotify Canvas on her popular songs.

On November 13, 2020, a fan on Reddit received a postcard with the lyrics on the back and the lead single’s artwork on the front.

On November 25, 2020, UPROXX interviewed MARINA and this is what she said what “Man’s World” sounds like to her:

A few songs on this record are very clashing red pink to me and ‘Man’s World’ is one of those.

[Verse 1]
Cheeks are rosy like a Boucher cherub
I’m a strawberry soda, raise my lashes to heaven
Stars in my hair running like a waterfall
Clouds in the whites of our eyes, we saw it all
Burnt me at the stake, you thought I was a witch
Centuries ago, now you just call me a bitch

[Chorus]
Mother Nature’s dying
Nobody’s keeping score
I don’t wanna live in a man’s world anymore
I don’t wanna live in a man’s world anymore
Anymore

[Verse 2]
Marilyn’s bungalow, it’s number seven
In the pink palace where men made her legend
Owned by a sheik who killed thousands of gay men
I guess that’s why he bought the campest hotel in LA then

[Chorus]
Mother Nature’s dying
Nobody’s keeping score
I don’t wanna live in a man’s world anymore
I don’t wanna live in a man’s world anymore

[Post-Chorus]
If you have a mother, daughter or a friend
Maybe it is time, time you comprehend
The world that you live in ain’t the same one as them
So don’t punish me for not being a man

[Bridge]
Spring appears when the time is right
Women are violets coming to light
Don’t underestimate the making of life
The planet has a funny way of stopping a fight

[Chorus]
Mother Nature’s dying
Nobody’s keeping score
I don’t wanna live in a man’s world anymore
I don’t wanna live in a man’s world anymore

[Post-Chorus]
If you have a mother, daughter or a friend
Maybe it is time, time you comprehend
The world that you live in ain’t the same one as them
So don’t punish me ’cause I’m not a man

[Outro]
So don’t punish me ’cause I’m not a man
‘Cause I’m not a man
