lyrics

I WISH I WERE A LESBIAN

i wish i were a lesbian
it sucks to be a gay man
You gotta keep your shape
so you can rape yourself
i wish that i were Carole Pope
my life would have a lot more hope
no distraction from my plan if i were k.d. lang.

but i am
constantly craving
endless masquerading
so goddamn frustrating get me out of this dream
i’m constantly craving
endless masquerading
taking the berating get me out of this scene

i wish i were a lesbian
‘cause when you are a gay man
the peer pressure is less political
and way more physical
the images shoved down my throat
and dancers on a corporate float
all these ideas of aspiration
increase the desire
(but don’t do much to inspire)

i’m constantly craving
endless masquerading
so goddamn frustrating get me out of this dream
i’m constantly craving
endless masquerading
taking the berating get me out of here,
nobody

walks like me
or talks me
so i’m conditioned, to-not like me,
no one looks like me
or sings like me
and i start believing i
shouldn’t even exist
(the way i am)
i wish i were a lesbian

i wish i were a lesbian
then i could get on with my plan
take-my means to my end without a care to the latest trends
i’d probably be a superstar
i already play folk guitar
that shit don’t fly when you’re a nondescript non-white gay guy
(…… who didn’t suck cock in a movie)

constantly craving
endless masquerading
so goddamn frustrating get me out this scene
i’m constantly craving
endless masquerading
taking the berating of a culture that says

that i must comply with the pretty pretty guys
looking up to the girls who run the world
of airbrushed cosmopolitan society
don’t forget to eschew variety
on top of that desire your oppressor
become invisible succumb to the pressure
your ideal lover is a magazine cover
and live so happily ever after

hell, the way it stands
i wish i were a lesbian

(save me save me save from this life)
the way it stands
i wish i were a lesbian

(i’d be divine i’d be closer to fine)
the way it stands
i wish i were a lesbian

(action, yes i am)
the way it stands
i wish i were a lesbian
the way it stands
i wish i were a lesbian
constantly craving
i wish i were a lesbian

about

RexySpice Toronto, Ontario

I aim for an aesthetic that is equal parts lyrical wit and acoustic angst. If Chrissie Hynde and Billy Bragg had a kid raised by Madonna and Ani DiFranco, I’d like to think he’d sound just like me. I used to call myself acoustic punk, but that felt rather conflicting and restricting given my love of the Spice Girls. I’m spending 2016 recording a long-overdue album and can’t wait for you hear it. ... more
