lyrics

people ask me if i am a drag queen
i tell em that i've never been into royalty
that's why i'm up in the pub yellin fuck an MP
brits out of ireland, palestine free
if i had to choose i'd be a drag peasant
organizing a rebellion no time like the present
i got glitter in my hair, pitchfork in the air
comin for those mainstream fuckers i swear

cuz if the gay nation wants assimilation
white picket fence disney vacation
joining in their military occupation
locking people up with hate crimes legislation
equal to the people who run the corporations
living out in brooklyn, gentrification

i say resist this elitist bullshit
i say it's time for a new movement
if you're feeling this song you can all sing along
when i say queer you say we're strong
say queer, we're strong
say queer, we're strong
say queer, we're strong
and we waited too long
to be sittin listening to politicians sayin hey
i'll give you another inch if you give me another day
just have patience, be a good gay
just like FEMA with Katrina they say help is on the way

but put your hands up if you're being lied to
make some noise if your government is working for you

... check one two, i guess we got our answer
so what are we gonna do?
let's riot in the streets til the break of dawn
start a revolution while we're getting it on
the laughter of our children will be our revenge
the only rings on our fingers are for self defense
don't ask me what i think cuz i'll tell you what i'd say

we don't need gays in the military
we need militant gays

bells roar:
you want us to be you
but our heart still shines through
your stifled existence
we breathe resistance
