about

This is our tribute to the feminist sci-fi novel by the same name, written in 1976 by Marge Piercy. We love that book and were deeply moved by its portrayal of the possible dystopian and utopian futures that await us. It’s a work of fiction, but one that demands action in the real world.

lyrics

The only thing I own
Is the time I spend alone
I’m an unknown
I’m a woman on the edge

Breath deep and clear your mind
Come travelling through time
cross the line
with the woman on the edge

My name is Consuelo
estoy con mi desvelo
I’m waiting to receive her
Wanting to believe in her

she took me to a future place
where people live with love and grace
no class or hierarchy
no war or patriarchy

The only thing I own
Is the time I spend alone
I’m an unknown
I’m a woman on the edge

So breath deep and clear your mind
Come travelling through time
cross the line
with the woman on the edge

So which one will it be?
Which world will the future see?
Will we win or will we lose?
Right now is the time to choose…

The only thing I own
Is the time I spend alone
I’m an unknown
I’m a woman on the edge

So breath deep and clear your mind
Come travelling through time
cross the line
with the woman on the edge
