(By staying closeted we make ourselves invisible; by coming out
We shatter the popular illusion that the whole world is
Heterosexual. Gay men and women with high visibility can have a
Tremendous impact by coming out, especially on the next
Generation. We owe it to those who have brought our movement
This far to finish the job. We cannot assume someone else will
Do it for us.)
There's a woman that we all know and love
She's made us laugh for years
We've watched as her talents unfolded
And blossomed into a career
But every time you see her
With her lover on tv
They call themselves "partners"
To keep up the myth
Of heterosexuality
There's a former host of a talk show
As gay as the day is long
But he always sang the wrong pronoun
When he opened with a song
Well it's true, he might lose a few fans
But he'd gain one more in me
If he just wouldn't try to live the myth
Of heterosexuality
Queers in the closet
In positions of power
Doing a dance on thin ice
Deals with the devil to be heroes for an hour
How long must we pay the price?
(It's time to think twice)
There's a famous fashion designer
Respected from east to west
We wear his name on our underwear
On our butts and on our chests
But the ones who buy his clothing
Would prefer to never see
That they're also buying the myth
Of heterosexuality
There's a singer who's risen to stardom
She got famous overnight
They say that she signed a contract
To keep her lesbian lips sealed tight
When she feels that she's established
Will she come out for all to see
Or will she perpetuate the myth
Of heterosexuality
Think twice about taking a free ride to freedom
While many are making demands
And we should think twice
About protecting the people
Who think that there's safety in silence
And won't take a stand
