You torture out the wildness, then replace it with the tame

from Lupe Fiasco – Lamborghini Angels Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The doctors try to replace “the wildness,” or whatever form of rebellion the women is committing, with “the tame,” or complacency.

While lobotomies were not limited to women, a disproportionate number of them were performed on women, sometimes as a way to rid them of melancholy, moodiness, or particularly rebellious behavior (though lobotomies were also used as a treatment for mental illnesses such as schizophrenia). One of the most famous lobotomies was performed on Rosemary Kennedy, the sister of President John F. Kennedy.
