For Greater Consciousness | Socially Conscious Piano Rock

Iraq, GLBT, Present Day

I was born different and the streets aren't safe,
my house isn't safe 'cause they suspect.
I was born different and that's not okay with them,
I don't know if it's okay, I just want to survive.

If I love another man,
why are they so afraid that they come to wipe me out?
If I'm not quite like them,
how am I so apart that they'll send me to
He-eh-eh-eh-ell?

(*solo*)

I was born different, so get me away,
get me to somewhere where I won't be hated.
I was born different, get me out of Iraq,
send me through the safe houses, they see there we're all the same.

If I love another woman,
why are they so afraid that they come to wipe me out?
If I'm not quite like them,
how am I so apart that they'll send me to
He-eh-eh-eh-ell?

Waiting for the ceasefire,
waiting for this to end.
Waiting until I can trust anyone,
trust anyone again.
I can't trust anywuh, ah-un, ah-un, ah-ah-ah-un
while they might think that I'm a stain
upon Creation,
that my own Creator might want me
de-eh-eh-eh-ead!

(*short percussive piano coda*)
