I embrace not being the least bit invested in party culture
I will not allow you to empty me anymore.
Too busy dancing on privilege
To even begin to unpack it
Call me boring.
You’ve obviously never been inside my head.
I don’t want to waist my crazy
I want every minute to be a deep and active choice to be alive
And I don’t want a second of it to be pos(t)ed on Instragram.
And I am not a fucking drag queen
Who’s either happy
And I am not here for dress up
And I am not here to pretend
And I am not here for your fucking entertainment
I’m no Sir on weekdays
This is my life not some Friday night special
Are you really crazy
Or are you really drunk
Because sometimes it’s really hard to tell.
And it’s reaaaaally important to distinguish.
Is there anything you need?
And there is so much poverty on the streets
And you sit up there at the top floor of the Hilton Hotel
And try to tell me that this is ok
That this is just the way it is
That we can’t afford to do anything about it
That we need the money to kill chldren in Afghanistan
I guess we always were more into killing the poor than killing poverty
And you’re still busy obsessing over that one day you weren’t safe at the top floor of that tall building.
Climbing to pretend you’re god at the expense of everyone else
Up there - it’s all just this feast on nothingness
Till that day
When everyone has the right to sit there with you.
Cuz everything belongs to the world that created it.
There is nobody who can own this.
And I don’t wanna be this philanthropist who gives a dime
And than doesn’t give a shit
And I don’t wanna be a cold-hearted neoliberal
Nor a bleeding-hearted liberal
It’s this cycle
This push-pull between privilege and oppression and hierarchies
And I want it out the back door
But that’s the only door we were ever allowed to enter.
And I can’t believe that we are staging an election with the question
What’s the lesser of two evils
And I can’t believe that you haven’t stopped to think that you’d be a better president than both of them.
Do you really think we need him to keep that bridge from falling
Do you really think he even had a hand in building that bridge to begin with?
