"Sex Yeah" is a song by Marina and the Diamonds on her second studio album, Electra Heart.

Background Edit

A rough demo of the song leaked in early 2011, one of the first leaks of the Electra Heart era. Another, more finished demo leaked later. Sex Yeah (as well as Power & Control and Living Dead) was rumored to be originally planned for Die Life, the original concept behind Marina's sophomore album.

The song is about gender stereotypes, as the title itself refers to sex as in gender.

LyricsEdit

Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex (Yeah)
Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex (La da da)
Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex (La da da da da)
Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex (Yeah)
Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex (La da da, la da da da da)

Nothing is provocative
Anymore, even for kids
No room for imagining
'Cause everyone's seen everything

Question what the TV tells you
Question what a Pop-star sells you
Question mom and question dad
Question good and question bad!

If history could set you free
From who you were supposed to be
If sex in our society
Didn't tell a girl who she would be
'Cause all my life I've tried to fight
What history has given me, me

Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex (Yeah)
Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex (La da da)
Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex (La da da da da)

If women were religiously
Recognized sexually
We wouldn't have to feel the need
To show our ass, it's to feel free

Been there, done that, got the t-shirt
Sold my soul and yeah the truth hurt
Tired image of a star
Acting naughtier than we really are

If history could set you free
From who you were supposed to be
If sex in our society
Didn't tell a guy who he should be
'Cause all my life I've tried to fight
What history has given me, me

Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex (Yeah)
Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex (La da da)
Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex (La da da da da)
Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex (Yeah)
Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex (La da da, la da da da da)

All my life I've felt it deep inside of me
All this time was fighting for what I believe
All my life I've tried to hide
What history has given me, me

If history could set you free
From who you were supposed to be
If sex in our society
Didn't tell a guy who he should be
'Cause all my life I've tried to fight
What history has given me, me

Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex (Yeah)
Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex (La da da)
Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex (La da da da da)
Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex (Yeah)
Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex (La da da, la da da da da)
