My Body My Choice

lyrics

Am, C, Gm

My heart is racing fast, and my brain isn’t in my head
And part of my brain feels too fucking dead
These lungs are breaking from the lack of breathing
These holes in my chest will never be filled in

Because your laws hold me down,
And your ideals weigh me down
And you’re just too heavy to hold up any longer

Dm, Bm, F, C


And this body wasn’t built for the mind that it must take
And this body isn’t built for the bones that it must break
And this body wasn’t built for me, oh christs sake
And this body wasn’t my fucking choice to be born in.

I’m becoming weak just from being with weak minded
I’m growing to be tired and winded
I’m obtaining a lack of sympathy
For the others that haven’t even had the choice to live yet
Because I didn’t choose to be born this way,
So I’d appreciate it if you didn’t choose my life, okay?
Because we’re all in the same boat
And there’s nothing to feel
Besides the regret of the actions we must deal
Because violence has never done us any good
But silence isn’t the answer to anything understood.


And this body wasn’t built for the mind that it must take
And this body isn’t built for the bones that it must break
And this body wasn’t built for me, oh christs sake
And this body wasn’t my fucking choice to be born in.
