We have no soul.
We're going to hell.
We've betrayed God.
We have heard your speech.

Who's to say
gays shouldn't marry?

We have no self respect.
We look stupid.
We are ugly.
We have heard your speech.

Who's to say
what's pretty?

We have no shame.
We are irrational.
We don't know what we're talking about.
We have heard your speech.

Who's to say
we're too young?

Our parents didn't love us.
We don't deserve anything.
We'll go to jail.
We have heard your speech.

Who's to say
you can judge someone you don't know?

We worship Satan.
We think we own the world.
We'll die without forgiveness.
We have heard your speech.

Who's to say
you can shove your beliefs down someone's throat?

We believe we have it so bad.
We think we should be in charge.
We think the world's against us.
We have heard your speech.

Who's to say
how we feel?

We'll be beaten.
We'll be hurt.
We won't be accepted.
We know this is true.

Because this is how it's been
for hundreds of years...
We won't give up.
