All I want is for all my friends to become insanely powerful All I want is to eat the flesh of every millionaire All I want is for those I love to never have to work for food and for those I hate to never have to pay for care Is that too much to ask? Is that too much to ask? Is that too much to ask? Is that too much to ask? All I want is self-prescription of every drug and surgery All I want is a free-to-live-in palace in the sky All I want is to see in the mirror a body that looks like mine All I want is to be able to cry Is that too much to ask? Is that too much to ask? Is that too much to ask? Is that too much to ask? I will kill for this I will die for this I will kill for this We can't die I will hurt for this I will heal for this I will fuck for this We can't sleep We will kill We will kill again We will kill We will kill again All I want is to be able to die and live again and die again All I want is for my touch to turn our enemies to dust All I want is a body made of ice and steel and silicon All I want is to be able to do what I must Is that too much to ask? Is that too much to ask? Is that too much to ask? Well is it?

He said you are hurting me He said you have always hated me He said you are a professional victim He said you are the biggest troll I know He said I'm not the only one sick of your self-righteous nonsense He said the morality you parade behind is an obvious mask for your hatred He said Liar Coward Backstabber He said you treat people with supercilious contempt He said you isolate and shame those who disagree He said you are oppressing me He said your self-important identities blind you He said loads of people have messaged me He said you could have stayed in your lane He said well gloves are off now He said we are afraid to speak out He said we are afraid He said you hide behind unimpeachable victimhood He said your militant attitude has created a culture of fear He said I cannot speak without the discussion becoming an assassination He said you are silencing me

Just admit you want us dead Just admit you want us dead Just admit you want us dead You want us dead You want us dead You want us dead (You want us dead) When you build a wall you want us dead When you pass a law you want us dead When you close a school you want us dead When you shut a dancehall you want us dead Just admit you want us dead Just admit you want us dead Just admit you want us dead You want us dead You want us dead You want us dead (You want us dead) When you write a headline you want us dead When you cut a trailine you want us dead When you call an election you want us dead Just a distraction from the fact you want us dead It would be easier for me to take if you would just admit it Stop pretending we're on the same side if you would just admit it Pour no more energy into false promises if you would just admit it Which is why you won't admit it Keep on telling me you just want the best for me Keep on telling me to calm down and be patient Keep on telling me this is the only way Keep on telling me there is no other world No other world No other world When you run a deportation you want us dead When you invoke nation you want us dead When you pick our clothes out you want us dead When you try to shut us down you want us dead You want us dead You want us dead But we're not going to die

I saw you stare I saw you leer I saw your want I saw your fear I saw you doubt I saw you think What fucking is that SMASHING YOUR FACE IN I've got a baseball bat painted with rainbows It leaves a trail of glitter when it breaks your nose I've got a unicorn with a sharpened horn and hooves Who drinks pink gin and charges anyone who disapproves Wear what I want Fuck who wants me Cut off what I want Become what I fucking want to be I've got a gang of the bears and the femmes and the smol and the huge and the xes and the thems Wear what I want Fuck who wants me Cut off what I want Become what I fucking want to be Your ontology is fucking basic couldn't even start Describing the historical materialism of my heart Everything I fucking am's a fucked up intertwining of The matter and the culture of how and who I learned to love Any given identity's the fucking product of the world Dividing into classes to extract resources, boys and girls Are only ever contingent and forever unstable categories Half-describing and half-denying impossible realities But I will take the words I need to make this living liveable And taking words away from me is fucking unforgiveable I don't care if your theory is the neatest thing you ever thought It's basic if it can't account for what I need to feel hot Wear what I want Fuck who wants me Cut off what I want Become what I fucking want to be Wear what I want Fuck who wants me Cut off what I want Become what I fucking want to be
