We can be normal too
We swear we can
Love is love man
We're really ok!

Open your arms to me
Embrace the whole of me
I'm not weird, not queer
I'm fucked, we're all fucked!

Reliquish the odd gender
I am not in a social bender
I'm not a freak
I'm fucked, we're all fucked

I'm not an alpha male
I'm not colorful, i can really be stale
You know i am fucked
We're all fucked

I'll go to church
Join the pta
Have a kid just like you
I'm fucked, we're all fucked

Promise not to be bent
Keep it clean no public sex
Stay away from the ymca
I'm fucked, we're all fucked

Dont make me beg
I'll grovel, i am on my knees
No! not on my knees
I'm fucked, we're all fucked

I'm fucked, we're all fucked
I'm fucked, i'm a mess
We're screwed
Cause i'm supposed to please you
You and you!

Detain us
Contain us
You have a right to hate us
Detain us
Sedate us
Would you please fucking hate us

    General CommentI've always loved this song. But I don't know what it means, really.

    I used to think it was a response to wealthy gay men who seek approval in mainstream culture. But there's too much in the song about repressing homosexuality and wealthy gay men don't really repress their homosexuality because they're more accepted in urban areas, or whatever or something.

    So, my best guess is that we're talking about all-embracing christians who "love" everyone. And basically the song is about christians or "progressives" repressing their hate for gays in favor of "loving" them and trying to "reform" them or work them into a puritanical worldview that avoids talking about sex (AKA gay sex which still makes them uncomfortable in spite of being all "love is love, man"). It's easier if they just admit they hate gays. "Detain us, Contain us, You have a right to hate us ... Would you please fucking hate us." Just give us that opposition, it's easier to deal with than your repressed feelings of hate, right?

    Then again, it could be a gay person who struggles with being homosexual because they think it's "not normal." But that interpretation is boring. That's a callous thing to say, but Limp Wrist is way more interesting than that after-school special theme.
