lifeblood: songs: lyrics: rural faggot


you ride your john deere
down to the pond
just to watch me
struggle along
you say you got your
daddy's seed in you
and you think you're bored with
anything there is to do
with me

you wipe your hands
across your bare chest
and run your fingers
through your crew cut hair
expelled from school
you tell me with a grin
i copped a feel
from an ex-girlfriend
i know you want to
break the rules
that were made by nature's fools
so you ride
all day long
all by yourself
'til you feel strong
strong enough to stay
strong enough to be
standing in the way
of everything i see

you wanna know
why i had to go
down to the baseball
park and see you blow it
and all the balls just
fall from your hands
and your daddy asks me
when is he gonna be a man
i know you want to
change the truth
oh we were made by nature's fools
so you ride
all night long
with your boys
in those muscle cars
and you go down
to the city
and laugh at the faggots
until the girls look pretty
and until you feel strong
strong enough to stay
strong enough to be
standing in the way
of everything that you could see

i'm just a magnet
for the rural faggots
they come and knock
on my door
just to find they're
running out of time
to figure out
what they come here for
i know you want to
know the truth
i'm the dyke
who will give it to you
by this time next year
you'll know you're queer
it'll all be okay
it'll all be clear
and you'll run away from home
but not to be alone
and you'll go down to the city
where the boys are pretty yeah
and where you feel strong
strong enough to stay
strong enough to be
a country boy who's gay
