lyrics

is sexuality shaped before one's eyelids..
..are stretched open for the first time?
hormones, genes, surroundings, family history
creates an intricate concoction
modifying inter mechanisms..
..and affecting one’s viewpoint..
..on the outward appearance

we say a daughter must amuse herself..
..with dolls and sons with guns
but what happens when the characters are switched?
young children feeling a disconnect between..
..physical form and gender roles..
..living in a world of confusion and misunderstandings

clashes between reflections..
..of image and internal self
a lad who continuously wants to play wife..
..in the game of house
who cares for a sweet doll in a pink dress
a lass who plays military battle games
who spends her time in pure aggression

children distant from support and acceptance
what is one to do when they experience..
..a strong driving force?
children distant from support and acceptance
a driving force to be what they are physically not
