lifeblood: songs: lyrics: blender


in a sea of white faces
i heard the latest version of the clash
still no ticket for the races
and the sisters still get the shaft
we got a punk rock problem
i'm tired of playing shirts and skins here
how can we sing against the system
if we're a main offender
i said put it in a blender
and let me get the hang
of how it fits together
and how we came to be
how it came it be

i'm a child
(majority)
of the m to m program
(minority)
we bus em out to the suburbs
(majority)
oh but we never got to know em
(minority)
i had a sex education
without a word for my gender
all these half-hearted tries
i said put em in a blender
and let me get the hang
of how we can fit together
and still keep our identity
still keep out identity

now the kids are hip hip hopping
(hip hip hopping)
and everybody's co-opting
and the straight girls are slumming it
(straight girls are slumming it)
at the suicide queers' gig
we're all assimilatin'
but we're still segregated
and its all for the market man
he says put em in a blender
see where the money lands
put em in a blender
then let them get the hang
of thinking that they've been here
i said put em in a blender
then let them get the hang
of thinking that they've been here
and thinking things are gonna change
thinking things are gonna change
