So you think you’re a man?
Walking with an air of authority-
Looking down on all you meet-
Spitting on the homos-
Degrading all the women-
Looking to your father,
Disobeying your mother,
Too proud to care, too proud for empathy,
So you think you’re all that?
So you think you’re really better?
Where are all the people?

So you think you’re a woman?
Caring for your children-
Cooking for him, Cleaning for him-
Dressing up for him-
Proud of the father you never cared to know-
Clone of the mother you hate-
Supporting your own discrimination-
Looking down at all the single women,
Looking down at all the ugly women,
Cuz’ they don’t have a man like you-
So you think you’re all that?
So you think you’re really better?
Where are all the people?

So you think you’re a person?
Can you think for yourself?
Can you judge right from wrong?
Can you stand up for humanity-
Does the word humane fall on your deaf ears?
Where are all the people?

I don’t see any people…

I see only slaves to conformity.
I see only slaves to inherited monstrosity.
