Track Name: Fuck Your Magazine Covers... We Demand Liberation!
Pacified by the changing tides
Kept in check as the water begins to rise
Held afloat by uncertainty
Deep down we know we're still drowning
We're done swallowing their lies
It's time to stand up and fight
Do they expect me to be grateful
For five minutes of exposure?
Pundit mouths and talking heads
Exploit our trauma and leave us for dead
NO CLOSET WILL KEEP US SILENT
IT'S TIME THAT WE TAKE OUR VENGENCE
Organize and resist
Grab a bat, get a brick
Paint your nails and line your eyes
We're starting fires. We won't be shy
NO CLOSET WILL KEEP US SILENT
IT'S TIME THAT WE TAKE OUR VENGENCE
They won't gaslight us to believe
That we've made strides
Can't give us cover stories
And hope we will comply
We're taking back our dignity
It's my life, my body, my autonomy
Here's the meaning of respect
Introducing my boot to your neck
Track Name: Blackout
Masquerade beneath the city lights
Mislead ourselves to think we're alright
Collect the moments of our hearts converging
We add them up and find less than nothing
It'd taken me too long to notice
That everything has shifted out of focus
How the hell did we end up here?
Can't retrace a path forged in fear
There was violence through the motion
Consequences invade devotion
It's taken me too long to notice
That everything has shifted out of focus
An echo chamber for dependent hearts
Blinded by passion from the start
Ignore the levels of toxicity
If we stay here we'll lose all clarity
Forget before I accept
Hold steady in the wake of our regret
Forget before I let go
Hold steady as we lose control
We've lost control
Dependency has taken its toll on us
