lyrics

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
