Testo tratto da Genius

Screwed ha qui un doppio senso: "fottuto" nel senso di essere rovinati dalle scelte che i governi e i potenti fanno per noi a cui Janelle contrappone il significato di "avere scopato": fate l'amore e non fatevi fottere dal potere.

La canzone contiene anche le parole °We'll put water in your guns", trasformare le vostre armi in pistole ad acqua, che è una bella versione moderna del "mettete dei fiori nei vostri cannoni".
I live my life in a magazine
I live my life on a TV screen
I live my life on birth control
I lost my mind to rock and roll

And I, I, I hear the sirens calling
And the bombs are falling in the streets
We're all screwed
And ah, ah, ah, it's not perfect, baby
But I go sex crazy
But I feel so screwed [1]
Sex, body
We're gonna crash your party

Let's get screwed
I don't care
You fucked the world up now, we'll fuck it all back down
Let's get, let's get screwed
I, I don't care
We'll put water in your guns
We'll do it all for fun
Let's get screwed

Wanna get screwed on a holiday
(Wanna get screwed on a holiday)
Wanna get screwed in a matinee
(Wanna get screwed in a matinee)
Wanna get screwed at a festival
(Wanna get screwed at a festival)
Wanna get screwed like an animal

And I, I, I hear the sirens calling
And the bombs are falling in the streets
We're all screwed
And ah, ah, ah, it's your birthday, baby
But I go sex crazy
But I feel so screwed
Sex, body
We're gonna crash your party

Let's get screwed
I don't care
You fucked the world up now, we'll fuck it all back down
Let's get, let's get screwed
I, I don't care
We'll put water in your guns
We'll do it all for fun
Let's get, let's get screwed

See, if everything is sex
Except sex, which is power
You know power is just sex
You screw me and I'll screw you too
Everything is sex
Except sex, which is power
You know power is just sex
Now ask yourself who's screwing you

Let's get screwed
I don't care, I don't care
You fucked the world up now, we'll fuck it all back down
Let's get screwed
I don't care
We'll put water in your guns
We'll do it all for fun
Let's get screwed

I, I, I hear the sirens calling
And the bombs are falling in the streets
We're all screwed
And ah, ah, ah, it's your birthday, baby
But we go sex crazy
But we feel so screwed
I, I, I hear the sirens calling
And the bombs are falling in the streets
We're all screwed

(We're so screwed)
Let's get screwed
I don't care
Let's get screwed
I don't care
See everything is sex
Except sex, which is power
You know power is just sex
You screw me and I'll screw you too
Everything is sex
Except sex, which is power
You know power is just sex
Now ask yourself who's screwing you

Hundred men telling me cover up my areolas
While they blocking equal pay, sippin' on they Coca Colas (oh)
Fake news, fake boobs, fake food—what's real?
Still in The Matrix eatin' on the blue pills (oh)
The devil met with Russia and they just made a deal
We was marching through the street, they were blocking every bill (oh)
I'm tired of hoteps tryna tell me how to feel
For real
[1] These lines establish the double meaning of “screwed” in the song: “screwed” as in having had sex, and “screwed” as in being done wrong. Someone who’s gone “sex crazy” would probably feel “screwed” in the first sense, and they would probably view that as a good thing. However, the “but” in the last line indicates that the type of “screwed” Jane is feeling is not of the pleasurable or welcome variety; rather, it is the type where she feels “screwed over” by the government and society devolving into war and into policing of sex and body (as seen in the following interlude).
