lyrics

You've given me shit since I was small / I've met thousands of fuckers like you / You all speak in the same smug condescending tone / but I've always seen right through / I've had to laugh your jokes, had to work at your stores / follow your laws obey your rule / tried to mold me to be one of you I never quite fit / yeah i never wanted to be you, yeah / you've been bosses you've been cops you've been teachers and family / kids at school, all kinds of authority / heteronorm homophobe misoginyst man / you act so tough and in control / by using bravado, machismo and arrogance / threats and power and physical violence / and you've built a world where you and your fucking clones / beat any pieces that don't fit into your mold / yeah and i know the shit i've tolerated doesn't compare / to the horrors you put others through / though physically i may resemble, you're my anti-role model / fuck the norms of this gender / i don't wanna be like you / don't wanna be like you / not like you / not a man like you / fuck it up now / don't wanna be that / don't wanna be like you / take it to the bridge one time, come on / hit me now / bring it back / don't wanna be that / don't wanna be like you / take it to the bridge, one more time / fuck it / fuck it up / come on / say not gonna be and never wanna be, but is that me? / call me out / hit me with my hypocriticality / i'm not exempting me or standing on a soapbox trying to preach / i'm trying to undo this conditioning from my upbringing / i'm sorry for my fuck ups / try to listen, grow, change be who i wanna be / an ally in the fight against them / don't wanna be that / don't wanna be like you / one more time to the bridge now come on / good god / ya boy / u got this / and i'm telling you, fuck the fucking patriarchy / and end this shit right now come on
