Keep on Living

[C G F G]

For the times you got fucked senseless just to not feel so alone
For the wonder in discovering a Sadie Benning film
For the record spinning, Donna screaming, Don’t try suicide
There’s another way to paradise, only in your mind.

For the rumors in the hallway, you might be so different
And the tags upon your locker that said, die you fucking faggot.
For the innocence you lost, but the wisdom you did gain
Now you know what tender is, you know how to be brave.

For the feelings that do linger so much longer than they should.
For the moments when the anger is all you can see for miles
For revenge you knew was coming, but couldn’t quite yet taste,
But you knew would be so sweet, so you made it through the day.

For the glory holes you dreamed of, your secret circle jerks
For the late nights in the library bathroom on the 3rd floor
For the times you tumbled sentences, afraid to speak the words
As if coming out would change the very person that you were.

For the sissies and the queers who feel forever so alone,
For the queens who wake in glitter, well into late afternoon.
For the ones we’ve yet to meet, ‘cause they are still so young,
And the ones we will remember, long after they’re gone.
