Verse:

I shouldn’t have to be scared of who I am

Scared that you'll find out that I am trans

How am I supposed to feel safe here?

How am I supposed to feel loved when you hate me?

This is not how it should be, this is not how it should be

Everyone should be free and that includes me

 

Verse:

I'm always terrified that somethings gonna slip

I feel like I'm destined to die, a ticking time bomb

You made me hate myself, but now I also hate you

The lies that I've consumed, the lies that you fed me

I don't believe in that anymore, this not how it should be

Everyone should be free and that includes me!

 

Chorus

I'll break these chains, I've always worn

Because I cant take this anymore

But fear has its hold over me

The shadows are creeping closer it seems

You'd never understand why I am like this

So I'll keep my mouth shut until graduation

By then it wont matter at all

I know everyone but a few will turn away

But I guess that's just how it works these days

Kids become sacrifices for conservative views

Kids are dying but still you refuse

To change your minds!

 

Oh, oh, oh, oh

Oh, oh, oh, oh!

 

Verse:

Why should it matter that I like girls or that a boy likes other boys?

I don't give a d*mn what you think if you say its wrong

People just wanna live their lives so get the f*ck out of here

You have no right to put your beliefs over theirs

So for god f*cking sakes leave them alone, they don't deserve your abuse

You're not any better just for being obtuse

 

Verse:

I can sing a thousand verses about how f*cked up the world is

But I'll start here, I'm done with excuses lets be f*cking for real

We deserve the same rights that you do, we're people too

And don't get me started on abortion laws, because women have the right to choose!

This is not how it should be

Everybody should be free!

 

Chorus

I'll break these chains, I've always worn

Because I cant take this anymore

But fear has its hold over me,

The shadows are creeping closer it seems

You'd never understand why I am like this

So I'll keep my mouth shut until graduation

By then it wont matter at all

I know everyone but a few will turn away

But I guess that's just how it works these days

Kids become sacrifices for conservative views

Kids are dying but still you refuse

To change your minds!

 

Oh, oh, oh, oh

Oh, oh, oh, oh!

 

Bridge:

Why cant you see what's right in front of you

We've told you multiple times but still cant get through!

How many more people have to suffer and live in fear,

Before someone does something about this?

I'll be a classic teen and say 'f*ck you' to the government

Because they haven't done sh*t for us quite the opposite

Its so ridiculous these social constructs that we've created

But this ain't the 60's its 2022,

So I'll ask the people what the f*ck is wrong with you!

 

Chorus

Lets break these chains we've always worn,

Because I cant take this anymore!

But fear has its hold over me,

The shadows are creeping closer it seems

You'd never understand why I am like this,

So I'll keep my mouth shut until graduation!

By then it wont matter at all

I know everyone but a few will turn away

But I guess that's just how it works these days

Kids become sacrifices for conservative views,

Kids are dying but still you refuse

To change your minds!

 

Oh, oh, oh, oh

Oh, oh, oh, oh!


The author's comments:

I am tired of all the crap going on in the world. I'm tired of being scared of my Christian homo/transphobic parents finding out that I'm gay and non-binary. I'm sick of woman's rights being taken away from them. I'm sick of the government that hasn't done anything good for us. This is ridiculous.
