lyrics

Standing in line after line. Hit refresh, refresh.
Only to regress, regress.
Their gaze sucking our identities in-
Our bodies not coherent to them.
So, we’re rendered invisible, rendered invisible AGAIN.

Nothing special, less valid to the world.
At every glance, they’re suspicious of your lack of an oppositional stance.
Less proximity to their standards of visibility.
Bats away, they'll pierce your ribcage

Constant tension, distraught under the voodoo of exhaustion
Inside this glamour system, where the spotlight radiates anesthesia

Plug your ears, medicate your minds, poison the livers with shallow lies to the insides.
Hope that these cloaks will withstand with the blind bats who weaved together these threads.

Resistance! Refusal to be contained by their violent words!
They won’t take my name and incarcerate me
I’ll keep running down these one ways
As they offer their tiny teeth for stitches

This body is protest
This performance is politics
These words are weapons
Must persist, must resist.
Persist, resist.


Plug your ears, medicate your minds, poison the livers with shallow lies to the insides.
Hope that these cloaks will withstand with the blind bats who weaved together these threads.
