Even Ask a Californian
Verse 1:
I as a homo
I cannot believe
Anything I'm told
Or anything I see
I have to break rules
Cause they're always changing
They're trying to make me
something that just isn't me

Link 1:
Oh what the hell they voting for
When they've already closed that door
They took it back, now they'll want more
They wont be happy 'till we're too sore
to stand up and fight them in this war
They just canít get passed the core
of what this country was built on
white mans greed & fake salvation

Hook:
Lies, lies
can I ask why
You say this is the life
To a gay guy who has no rights
Its about time you tell me why you get to decide

Chorus:
Whatís this with you came so far
And you say you canít go back
When you know you really can
Even ask a Californian
Boy you look so pitiful
During your contemplation
With all your horrid scars
They run straight up your arms

Go ahead and slit your wrists
Cause I can guarantee
thatís what the people want
When in whole they give me the creeps
I see what they do to you
And I know they do it to me
Yo theyíre trying to make us screwed
And then claim that weíre free

Verse 2:
Say I am a faggot
Pretend thatís what he called me
Then weíll both go to court and
Heíll get an attorney
And then he pleads not guilty
To all of the jury
Theyíll slap him on the wrist
And tell him ďstop teasingĒ

Link 2:
Then all the country they can see
The justice the jury showed me
They get free publicity
So everyone will spend money
And all it took was a fag like me
The guy gets off so easily
You bet your ass heíll come after me
The white mans slave whoís he really?

Hook:
Lies, lies
can I ask why
You say this is the life
To a gay guy who has no rights
Its about time you tell me why you get to decide

Chorus:
Whatís this with you came so far
And you say you canít go back
When you know you really can
Even ask a Californian
Boy you look so pitiful
During your contemplation
With all your horrid scars
They run straight up your arms

Go ahead and slit your wrists
Cause I can guarantee
thatís what the people want
When in whole they give me the creeps
I see what they do to you
And I know they do it to me
Yo theyíre trying to make us screwed
And then claim that weíre free

Chorus:
Whatís this with you came so far
And you say you canít go back
When you know you really can
Even ask a Californian
Boy you look so pitiful
During your contemplation
With all your horrid scars
They run straight up your arms

Go ahead and slit your wrists
Cause I can guarantee
thatís what the people want
When in whole they give me the creeps
I see what they do to you
And I know they do it to me
Yo theyíre trying to make us screwed
And then claim that weíre free

Freakin' Out
Verse 1:
Research does show me just how some countries continue viewing homosexuality
And itís really scary to think what theyíre doing to people just like me in third world countries
Theyíll chop off your head and hang you in public Itís one of the only times I can actually say
Iím glad Iím a US citizen even though I canít get married at least Iím still alive

Chorus:
Iím freakiní out

Verse 2:
History tells me just how long it takes to change the mind frame of a society
And itís such a damn shame Iíll never see change not in my lifetime or probably my babyís
But we will one day just like slavery It had an ending and so will this gay thing
Even though I canít serve gaily in the military itís one of them things ďat least Iím still aliveĒ

Chorus:
Iím freakiní out

Half the US Population is Gay
Verse 1:
In times, in times of high hopes for me
Iím deemed unfree
and itís so unfair. You see,
because Iím gay
you get to vote
And because of the way you vote against me
It leads me to believe

Hook 1:
That youíre acting inhumanely
Yes I see clearly
So very precisely
So extremely exactly
Just how unequally
Some peeps are sadly being
treated here in our society (society)

Link:
And it donít say much for the stripes and the stars we hide behind
(We hide behind)
And it donít explain much on your part why you feel the need to be a retard
(be a retard)

Prechorus:
You live life
in a big fat lie
Go ahead and take my rights
Bet your ass youíll get a fight
Your reprehended lives
and antagonistic tries
Are pathetically divine
Your actions are out of spite
And your ignorance proves stupid
Your silly ass is worthless
You vote yet you are wordless
Iím thinking that youíre clueless
You rednecks are so foolish
Your straight life just ainít worth it
Half of you and your mothers
Are closeted buttfuckers

Chorus:
The vote in California in 2008
proves that nearly half the US-population is gay
And Ďdoes that make you feel safe?í as Jewel would say
That really put things into place

Verse 2:
These days, the steps that we have to take
will, one day, be seen as bigot mistakes
To fight justification of gays
One day gay will actually mean
to live life happily with whoever you please

Hook 2:
ĎCause right now youíre acting inhumanely
Yes I see clearly
So very precisely
So extremely exactly
Just how unequally
Some peeps are sadly being
Treated here in our society (society)

Link:
And it donít say much for the stripes and the stars we hide behind
(We hide behind)
And it donít explain much on your part why you feel the need to be a retard
(be a retard)

Prechorus:
You live life
in a big fat lie
Go ahead and take my rights
Bet your ass youíll get a fight
Your reprehended lives
and antagonistic tries
Are pathetically divine
Your actions are out of spite
And your ignorance proves stupid
Your silly ass is worthless
You vote yet you are wordless
Iím thinking that youíre clueless
You rednecks are so foolish
Your straight life just ainít worth it
Half of you and your mothers
Are closeted buttfuckers

Chorus:
The vote in California in 2008
proves that nearly half the US-population is gay
And Ďdoes that make you feel safe?í as Jewel would say
That really put things into place

Our Marriage License
Verse 1:
What a world we live in
What a country we share
A place that was given
To everyone everywhere
We humans should be equal
Cause thatís what we all are
Sexual orientation
Shouldnít determine if ones barred

Hook:
Who the hell is another soul
To tell me who I can love
Or who I can raise my children with
Or who I can marry later on in our relationship

Chorus:
Thatís right, Our relationship
Thatís right, thatís right
Our marriage license
Thatís right, thatís right
Not yours, our lives
Thatís right, thatís right
Our lives

Verse 2:
Whyís the color of ones skin
Have to make a difference
Where individuals rank in
Or whoís worthy of the worlds riches
Why are people so ignorant
Whyís the white man so arrogant
Iíll get married to whom I want to
It shouldnít be a vote for you

Hook:
Who the hell is another soul
To tell me who I can love
Or who I can raise my children with
Or who I can marry later on in our relationship

Chorus:
Thatís right, Our relationship
Thatís right, thatís right
Our marriage license
Thatís right, thatís right
Not yours, our lives
Thatís right, thatís right
Our lives

Hook:
Who the hell is another soul
To tell me who I can love
Or who I can raise my children with
Or who I can marry later on in our relationship

Chorus:
Thatís right, Our relationship
Thatís right, thatís right
Our marriage license
Thatís right, thatís right
Not yours, our lives
Thatís right, thatís right
Our lives

Straight Mans Land
Verse 1:
Being gay aint what it used to be
Sneaking in the shower-room just for a peak
Of guys you wish you had so sweet
Now itís ďSweat life over gay rights
And mistrusting straight whites
all those happy voting types
Who will ban your ass from this straight manís land
Just for living life because you live with a guyĒ

Chorus:
Hey you, yeah you
I donít give a fuck about you
Hey you, yeah you
I donít give a fuck about you
Hey you, yeah you
Youíre a close-minded fucking shrew
and I ainít got no time for you
Hey you, yeah you
I ainít got no time for you

Verse 2:
Being gay used to be a dangerous thing
And it still is if you visit the wrong place
You can check it out on the web at ďMatthewsPlaceĒ
Now itís ďGive rights and then yank them right back
Vote in spite of gay life does that make you feel itís right?
In this straight manís land how many have to die
Before you get that through your heads?

Chorus:
Hey you, yeah you
I donít give a fuck about you
Hey you, yeah you
I donít give a fuck about you
Hey you, yeah you
Youíre a close-minded fucking shrew
and I ainít got no time for you
Hey you, yeah you
I ainít got no time for you

This is My Gay Life
Chorus:
This is life, this is life, this is my gay life (x8)

Verse 1:
I get up each day, and get some coffee in me.
Then I get my daughter ready for school.
Give her a kiss, and then I drive her there.
Then I come home and get myself ready too.

Hook 1:
Then I kiss my boyfriend goodbye
ĎCause Iím off to campus all day as is he
It is there where we get the same education as the next classmate

Chorus:
This is life, this is life, this is my gay life (x8)

Verse 2:
I drive home. Itís nearly 30 miles away
but I do it at least 2 times a week and I donít complain.
I arrive home, Iím alone with my boyfriend
for an hour or 2. What more need I say?

Hook 2:
We get it on, make our love
Ďcause in our house thatís okay
And the children come home
Then we play the night away
And sometimes I have time to sing

Chorus:
This is life, this is life, this is my gay life (x8)

These Are
Verse 1:
To pass the days away I sometimes think of you
And wonder ďwhy did I let you go?Ē
I think that Iím so often mesmerized by times
That I had so very long ago
Iím in such a bad place now-a-days in life that
Who would blame me for reminiscing?
But I have come so far here in life without you
How could I miss such a bad place?

Chorus:
These are the days that I wish for an ďusĒ forever
These are the times where I picture my past as better
These are the nights where I still like to wear your sweater
These are the things that I like to remember

Verse 2:
To keep myself intact and on track without you
I figure a payoff will come to me soon
But I spend too much time analyzing so much
Sometimes I often forget to live in the day
Iíve gotta get my life right once again this year
Or I simply just cannot be here
I hate that Iím grown up Ďcause that means I canít give up
Even if I really wanted to

Chorus:
These are the days that I wish for an ďusĒ forever
These are the times where I picture my past as better
These are the nights where I still like to wear your sweater
These are the things that I like to remember

You're Not Mine
Verse 1:
Why should I give a fuck about you?
ĎCause you think that I think youíre cute?
Oops your mistake! God youíre such a fool
Why do you think Iím into you?
Have an indicator or 2?
Probably not cause there canít be proof
Of something thatís not true
Bitch Iíve had enough of you
Trying to hang out with me
Like youíre really that cool
Think youíve got it like that?
Man youíre a retarded fool
Cause you think you really fit in
And you think youíre really a dish
You ainít even half of the shit

Chorus:
Youíre not mine

Verse 2:
Why should I spend the night with you?
Do you think that Iím desperate?
Do you think you can handle this?
Do you think Iím not consistent?
Havenít I seen enough of you
Or of guys that are just like you?
Playing youís like attending grade school
Stay awake enough to coast through
I canít stand you types of dudes
Thinking that youíre really a man
But a man who drools over fags
Boy youíve got some weird-ass thinking
Your philosophies are a kook
Shows where your tiny mindís at
You try to live but we know that you canít
Like you ever stick to your plans

Chorus:
Youíre not mine
