Track Name: Bone to Pick
You say you got problems girl
Well I got em too
You say you got problems baby
Well we all got problems too
Yea, but you can cry all night now sugar
After what you put me through

So cry now for the life you lack,
spread your fears when its holding you back,
you know you can’t change and you’re feeling the pain,
well we all got something that can take the blame,
you were born under a bad sign, lack of privilege,
the upper hand was never something that you lived with,
so raise your fists and stomp your feet,
fight for the cause then take a seat,

Why can’t anybody let me be,
and oh, how I love to cry,
Woe is me,

Because it feels like the world is stabbing in my back,
Everybody’s got to have a bone to pick,
Got my straw man standing ready too conflict,
Everybody’s got to have a bone to pick,
Ah huh

Don’t you know there’s people out there,
who don’t got a cent to their name,
I said there’s people out there honey,
who don’t got a cent to their name,
yea and you’re walking in the streets now,
looking for someone you can blame,

Locked down by the PC police,
knocked down trying to get my release,
the blood hounds always hot on the trail,
for the next petty issue they can mark for sale,
all the first world victimized profiteers,
just collect your tears then they oil the gears,
cause when you’re sad, you’re mad,
when you’re mad, you rage,
and your rage makes you click upon the internet page,
and when you click upon the page
everybody gets paid,
and the sheep all flock to the false charade,
when it dies away they just do it again,
cause where you’re freedoms end
that’s where their feelings begin,
whenever speaking your mind becomes a crime
I find it’s better doing the time
than living vocally blind,
you know control of your words
is control of your thoughts,
well god damn, I think I’d rather be shot.

Why can’t anybody let me be,
and oh, how I love to cry,
Woe is me,

Because it feels like the world is stabbing in my back,
Everybody’s got to have a bone to pick,
Got my straw man standing ready too conflict,
Everybody’s got to have a bone to pick,
Ah huh
Track Name: What They Said
I left my home for the weekend, and the safety of my bed,
my life is secure, my opinions validated,
I feel special in my head,
The world outside seems so shitty,
all the people try to bring me down,
I thought that I was perfect
and I thought that they would love me,
but instead they only try to offend,
I can’t believe what they said,

Well sometimes criticism is given,
it’s the one true fact about the world we live in,
you can choose to accept or reject critique,
there’s a risk that you take every time you speak,
if you shout your opinions in a public place,
well then they might just shout right back in your face,
if you think that you’re safe guess again my friend,
because sometimes life’s just got to offend,

My mother told me she loves me and she’d always hold my hand,
she told me that my feelings were the only thing that mattered,
but nobody seems to understand,

Not everything is gonna be about you,
cause the world keeps turning whether with or without you,
you can cry your griefs about what you believe,
but don’t expect anyone to see the way you see,
don’t expect anyone to feel the way you feel,
when the flack that you’re fed is a three course,
offense is never given it can only be taken,
when the age of outrage comes to break you down,

All the agendered, bigendered, non and cis gendered,
pan, demisexual, trans, and misgendered,
plantkin, otherkin, dragons and therions,
muslims, satanists, jews and christians,
black skin, white skin, yellow and brown,
we all got people trying to put us down,
and word is only strong as the power we give it,
we can censor it out, or we can learn to live with it,

I left my home for the weekend,
I left the safety of my comfortable bed,
I had to talk to people different from me,
and I just can’t believe what they said,
I can’t believe what they said
