Lyrics

I find like, I have some beliefs that are too inflammatory to even discuss
Unfortunately

[Chorus]
Because there are certain things in society, that you're not allowed to believe
Or speak publicly
And so I'll just never say them
And I'll just leave them in my little head
Because there are certain things in society, that you're not allowed to believe
Or speak publicly
And so I'll just never say them
And I'll just leave them in my little head

But mostly I find all these things ridiculous
First of all, I hate that we force people into identifying themselves by little, tiny, uh...
Because we oppress people we further oppress them by forcing them to identify themselves as
What I consider less than human
So if someone says, "I am proud to be Black." I go, that's too bad for that guy 'cause it's a retarded thing to be proud of
We see it with White power, if someone says, I'm proud to be White we see how ridiculous that sounds
But we don't see it when a person says because they've been oppressed I'm proud to be Black
But it is ridiculous, we've pushed them into a corner where now they're going to spend their whole life identifying themselves
By the pigment of their skin
Which is a sad waste of life
Or if you say, "I'm proud to be gay. That's what I am and that's how I'll live my life."
Oh boy, you're really limiting yourself there and it's too bad and I know you've been forced into it
By being pushed down and oppressed, but it's still very, very sad
And I don't think of myself as Canadian
And I think it's a terrible thing to say you're proud to be a Canadian or proud to be an American
All that stuff is nonsense
You may as well be proud to have lungs
You didn't accomplish nothing
You were just born somewhere or, you know, you were just born with a skin that's a certain color
Or born with a sexual attraction to a certain type of person. That stuff's all
It's all just little, miniature things in life that are so unimportant
And when people try to tell me that God is not important
But that this nonsense is important
I couldn't disagree more

[Chorus]
Because there are certain things in society, that you're not allowed to believe
Or speak publicly
And so I'll just never say them
And I'll just leave them in my little head
Because there are certain things in society, that you're not allowed to believe
Or speak publicly
And so I'll just never say them
And I'll just leave them in my little head

[Outro]
There are certain things in society, that you're not allowed to believe
Or speak publicly
And so I'll just never say them
And I'll just leave them in my little head
There are certain things in society, that you're not allowed to believe
Or speak publicly
And so I'll just never say them
And I'll just leave them in my little head
