lyrics

I failed at being trans
I failed at shaving and emotional stability
Failed to not have doubts
Or freak out in the middle of the night
Couldn’t stop rolling my eyes
At the internet discourse I’m meant to like
Failed at selling my body
Or working in a library
Dragged to my grave by wholesome old ladies
When all I wanted to do was fuck right there on the issues desk
Then go outside and burn stuff
Couldn’t grow out of puberty
Or stop the hairs on my head turning grey
Failed to find the right words to describe our bodies

WE’RE WORTH MORE THAN OUR PRODUCTIVITY (x3)
WE’RE WORTH MORE THAN OUR AUTHENTICITY

I failed to find love or form close bonds
Or keep my parents happy
Failed to stick to non-exploitative pornography
Failed at holding my alcohol or staying awake
When my friends were saying
Let’s go out let’s go out let’s go out let’s go out
Failed at feeling any sense of belonging
Just came apart at the seams periodically
But it’s OK it’s OK it’s OK it’s OK

WE’RE WORTH MORE THAN OUR RESPECTABILITY (x3)
WE’RE ALL ARCHITECTS OF OUR OWN DESTRUCTION ANYWAY
