lyrics

G Em D7 C
in the hospital with your new born kid
but you don't want to look at it
the father is a man who abused you

when you called the police they said you were to blame
you pleaded for help but they weren't listening
they just asked you how short your skirt was

G C D7
did you know that some people don't have a choice
even tho that's what america's for
that's why we went to war (for independence)
to give us a choice

G Em D7 C
for nine months you walked with shame
fearing your child and fearing the blame
who do you hate most - you or him or it?

you couldn't bear the weight, you wanted to quit
but the religious cults outlawed it
so now you're required to be reminded every day

G C D7
did you know that some people don't have a choice
even tho that's what america's for
that's why we went to war (for independence)
to give us a choice

G Em D7 C
not a girl or a boy, you're in between
you've known you were odd since the age of thirteen
but nobody wants to recognize you

when you walk to school, you're filled with fear
your best friend is no longer here
he couldn't handle all the things they did

G C D7
did you know some people don't have a voice
when it comes to it, hir, ze, xe or them
when did majority rule mean there are no exceptions
to what is the norm?

G Em D7 C
routine forms don't recognize you
which gender bathroom can you walk in to?
and you're the butt of every shemale joke

no one takes you seriously
they all seem to think your problems are funny
either that or they feel disgust

G C D7
did you know some people don't have a voice
when it comes to it, hir, ze, xe or them
when did majority rule mean there are no exceptions
to what is the norm?

did you know that some people don't have a choice
even tho that's what america's for
that's why we went to war (for independence)
to give us a choice

did you know some people don't have a voice
when it comes to it, hir, ze, xe or them
when did majority rule mean there are no exceptions
to what is the norm?
