lyrics

Verse 1:
I used to be that weirdo in the shadows
I was that kid you never knew but that you’d always hassle
I tell ya my shrinks got rich off my gigantic battles
I wish I’d known what I know now and perhaps not been so rattled

Hook 1:
I had to feel like I was in a world where I belonged
It’s something I never got ‘til after I grew up

Chorus:
All the way from stonewall, back to the stone age
We’ve fought for equality for our oppressed community
With nothing but visions of love on our minds
just take it in stride - you’ve gotta have hope and pride

Verse 2:
Perhaps you feel like you’re the black sheep of your family
Or maybe feel like you’re the outcast that no one fancies
Well even though psychiatry may be a noble profession
The cure comes to pass once you realize that there’s nothing wrong with you

Hook 2:
You’ve got to feel like you are in a place where you are loved
You’ve got to know that you’re perfect just the way you are

Chorus:
All the way from stonewall back to the stone age
We’ve fought for equality for our oppressed community
With nothing but visions of love on our minds
just take it in stride - you’ve gotta have hope and pride
