about

It's about inalienable rights.

lyrics

Hey America why can't I marry my boyfriend?
Why can't I hold his hand in public without you breathing down my fucking neck?
Hey America we're all equally important
so let's squash this self importance
and forget all the subtle difference.

Throw down the glove strike up the band
let's get involved and take a stand.
Rally around like minded souls
stomping the homophobe's stronghold.

Read me your reasons lay down all your lies.
I'll fight even if I can't win.
You base all your truths on religion's disguise.
Question the questions worth answering.

Hey America why can't I marry a man?
We're all doing what we can to find pleasure in anything.
Laws will be passed but they'll fall back on their ass
due to right wing Catholic sass
whatever happened to human rights?

I dream of a time when no laws will divide
the love that we all try to find.
We waste so much time arguing human rights
when fuck aren't we all just the same?
We're all flesh and blood and in a way all need love
we all sleep and breathe and we search...
I waste so much time arguing human rights
when fuck aren't we all just the same?
