Flicker of an ash Fingers stained like grass Haven't been cleaned in days Haven't ever been another way Don't want to be other Like our overworked mothers Like our racist fathers But we still never bother To change To change We other you to this day We other you to this day The soil gives us away We don't toil we don't pay Where did I come from? It doesn't change the way Don't want to be other Fetishize all our lovers Objectify all colours Convinced we've all changed We other you to this day

Do you dream Do you dream? Of the time before the good book Encompassed everything There was a personal Spirituality Not poisoned by a man's By a man's perverse needs I wrote the book You wrote the book We all penned a verse It became a twisted version of our personal quirks Why we made it our darkest fantasy Cuz we never spoke aloud about it Our own blasphemy It's anyone's best guess It's a travesty Do you scream Do you scream? At all the words on the page The rules someone else made Filling you with rage Filling you with rage Is there rhythm in anger? Is there wisdom in the sage? Oh I've got so much pain I wrote the book You wrote the book We all penned a verse It became a twisted version of our personal quirks Why we made it our darkest fantasy Cuz we never spoke aloud about it Our own blasphemy It's anyone's best guess It's a tragedy like your empty nest Do you feel Do you feel? Like we've given up on hope At the end of our rope Our personal vendetta Turned into a bitter trope Is a plucked wing a blessing? Is it your mechanism of cope? I wrote the book You wrote the book We all penned a verse It became a twisted version of our personal quirks Why we made it our darkest fantasy Cuz we never spoke aloud about it Our own blasphemy It's anyone's best guess Do you dream Do you dream? Of the time before the good book Encompassed everything It's a nightmare in disguise You've pardoned it with lies But we can't hide our fears In the hymns we sing I wrote the book You wrote the book We all penned a verse It became a twisted version of our personal quirks Why we made it our darkest fantasy Cuz we never spoke aloud about it Our own blasphemy It's anybody's best guess It's a tragedy

Green and blue The dream is true I could have whatever I want Dressed in green You had a dream That we spent our lives apart But technology That's all but free Brings us closer to the heart We've known poverty Yet we feel free Something others cannot Could we dream of a meeting The last day of our lives On a precipice that overlooks Our past mistakes in disguise We have a picnic and discuss Our regrets and our loves We get to choose The moment that we die Space and time The dream is a lie I could never have what I want Dressed in black A birthmark on your back The shape of my favourite font An analogy A likeness of you and me Your words tied me in knots We've known fear A shade of our queer Gets too ripe and then it rots Could we dream of a meeting The last day of our lives On a precipice that overlooks Our past mistakes in disguise We have a picnic and discuss Our regrets and our loves We get to choose The moment that we die Up and down A dissonant sound Etched in my inner ear It echoed loud Be careful what you found You wouldn't want it to get too near Could we dream of a meeting The last day of our lives On a precipice that overlooks Our past mistakes in disguise We have a picnic and discuss Our regrets and our loves We get to choose The moment that we die Green and blue The dream is true I could have whatever I want

Every day I had a ritual A comfortable embrace It wasn't about beliefs No Living in the Devil Age Intolerance of uncertainty Pulled me to each pinch I still convince myself it was necessary I'll never give that inch There is beauty in disaster I grew from my pain I painted you this picture I can take it away From a habit comes a comedy It's not a funny show It's up to you to see the worth I smoked it long ago I don't want your pity In this Devil Age I want tolerance, acceptance For the choices I have made There is beauty in disaster I grew from my pain I painted you this picture I can take it away No one is illegal For objecting to the war A box, a light, a paper Lying on the floor I embrace the Devil Bringer of the light First to question status quo My wrongs don't make you right No There is beauty in disaster I grew from my pain I painted you this picture And I can take it away There is beauty in disaster I grew from my pain I painted you this picture And I can take it away
