Lottery Of Birth

Where to begin with original sin
Order spare rib and twist hard as you stick it in
Play the game of who’s to blame
Know your place in the human race
Meet the world with the right look about your face
Daughters and sons
Zeroes and ones

It’s not between the legs or in the shape of the eyes
Everybody’s born under similar skies
You can’t determine a person’s worth
From lottery of birth

Rip it up and start all over again
A tuxedo for Barbie and a ballgown for Ken
Now’s the time, shift paradigm
Wear pink, wear blue, what are you going to do?
Is a picture on the bathroom door all there is to you?
Stop the hate, emancipate

It’s not between the legs or in the shape of the eyes
Everybody’s born under similar skies
You can’t determine a person’s worth
From lottery of birth

Follow your heart, no matter what they say
Why just pass when you can lead the way?

It’s in your media and it’s in your toys
Disney princesses and soldier boys
Who cares what you want to do
It’s already been all set out for you
Livestock sorted in a box
Chickens, hens and strutting cocks
“Why can’t you just be normal?”, they say
What’s normal anyway?
At school, at work
She’s such a bitch, he’s such a jerk
We’re all human in case you didn’t know
Just relax and go with the flow
Fight misogyny with androgyny
No surrender to the gender agenda
If you have a problem it’s yours, don’t mind me
No lottery of birth is going to bind me

The man on the street and the king of the land
Always attack what they don’t understand
Don’t think you know what I’m feeling inside
Take all your prejudice and cast it aside

It’s not between the legs or in the shape of the eyes
Everybody’s born under similar skies
You can’t determine a person’s worth
From lottery of birth

Follow your heart, no matter what they say.
