lyrics

Verse 1:
I as a homo I cannot believe
anything I'm told or anything I see
I have to break rules ‘cause they're always changing
They're trying to make me something that just isn't me

Link 1:
Oh what the hell they voting for
when they've already closed that door
They took it back, now they'll want more
They wont be happy 'til we're too sore
to stand up and fight them in this war
They just can’t get passed the core
of what this country was built on
white man’s greed & fake salvation

Hook:
Lies, lies
Can I ask why you say this is the life
to a gay guy who has no rights
It’s about time you tell me why you get to decide

Chorus:
What’s this with you came so far
and you say you can’t go back
When you know you really can
even ask a Californian
Boy, you look so pitiful
during your contemplation
With all your horrid scars
They run straight up your arms
Go ahead and slit your wrists
‘Cause I can guarantee
that’s what the people want
When in whole, they give me the creeps
I see what they do to you
and I know they do it to me
Yo, they’re trying to make us screwed
and then claim that we’re free

Verse 2:
Say I am a ‘faggot’
Pretend that’s what he called me
Then we’ll both go to court and
he’ll get an attorney
And then he pleads ‘not guilty’
to all of the jury
They’ll slap him on the wrist
And tell him ‘stop teasing’

Link 2:
Then all the country, they can see
the justice the jury showed me
They get free publicity
So everyone will spend money
And all it took was a ‘fag’ like me
The guy gets off so easily
You bet your ass he’ll come after me
The white man’s slave, who’s he really?

Hook:
Lies, lies
Can I ask why you say this is the life
to a gay guy who has no rights
It’s about time you tell me why you get to decide

Chorus:
What’s this with you came so far
and you say you can’t go back
When you know you really can
even ask a Californian
Boy, you look so pitiful
during your contemplation
With all your horrid scars
They run straight up your arms
Go ahead and slit your wrists
‘Cause I can guarantee
that’s what the people want
When in whole, they give me the creeps
I see what they do to you
and I know they do it to me
Yo, they’re trying to make us screwed
and then claim that we’re free

Chorus:
What’s this with you came so far
and you say you can’t go back
When you know you really can
even ask a Californian
Boy, you look so pitiful
during your contemplation
With all your horrid scars
They run straight up your arms
Go ahead and slit your wrists
‘Cause I can guarantee
that’s what the people want
When in whole, they give me the creeps
I see what they do to you
and I know they do it to me
Yo, they’re trying to make us screwed
and then claim that we’re free
