lyrics

Opium of the masses creating social division. Choosing ignorance as the influence for policy decisions. Distracting us from the things that really affect our lives. Instead take your own people and dehumanize. Take away your Civil Rights and your dignity. De Facto class of other in our society. Defending the “sanctity” of an institution obsolete. The Psychology of the burning cross returns to the street.

Emotionally traumatized and legally victimized. A culture desensitized to their fellow man. Will the land of the free have the understanding that the stigma put on being gay is something you can’t pray away.

The only truth that matters is the televangelists’ version. So even “compassion” takes the form of tactics of coercion. Reparative therapy to save you from hell. Your psychological condition is a commodity to sell. Teach away your self-esteem and shame away your pride. Focus on Family and Love in Action are training for suicide. Destroying the minds of youth both straight and gay. Every time you tell us just to pray it away.
