lyrics

They said son be a man.
We didn’t raise no queer.
You’d best start actin’ straight,
If you wanna keep livin’ here.

I try to hide my shame
I try to hide my fear
I swear I hate myself
I just wanna disappear

Conversion.

It’s just your aversion to the truth.
It’s your aversion to reality.
It’s not a choice that I get to choose.
It’s just who I’m supposed to be.
I’m not a problem that you need to solve.
I’m not a crisis of identity.
It’s torture that you put me through,
And you fucking call it therapy!

They lock me in this room,
Starving and so hungry.
The pills make me sick.
The shock of electricity.

They call it a cure.
They call it a remedy.
It’s what they tell themselves,
And they’ll pray over the bodies.

Conversion.

It’s just your aversion to the truth.
It’s your aversion to reality.
It’s not a choice that I get to choose.
It’s just who I’m supposed to be.
I’m not a problem that you need to solve.
I’m not a crisis of identity.
It’s torture that you put me through,
And you fucking call it therapy!

Conversion.
