The only reason I wanna jump on your bones
Is 7 8ths social conditioning and 2 3rds pheromones
And yes I know my maths might be a little out
But nothing fits anyway, so chuck it all out
And technically I’m not meant to want you to want me
Because I’m not a woman and you’re a dyke
But the rules of attraction are just a load of shite
Fuck who you want and want who you like
Just because you read it on the internet doesn’t mean it’s right
And the memes that they constantly type
They say nothing to me about my life

7 8ths and 2 3rds
Before we remove our clothes
7 8ths and 2 3rds
There’s something you should know
7 8ths and 2 3rds
I’ve made a few mistakes
7 8ths and 2 3rds
And I’m hated by all of your mates

Try to contain your unending sense of joy
This is another self-absorbed missive
From another trans white boy
Or if you don’t know what the fuck I’m talking about
It’s 'cos I never burst the bubble in which I hung out
Inside it we talked ourselves to death
Outside it made fuck all difference
We’ll be so absorbed in our own shit
We won’t even notice when somebody throws a brick

7 8ths and 2 3rds
So good at naval gazing
7 8ths and 2 3rds
So good at deconstructing
7 8ths and 2 3rds
So good at overthinking
7 8ths and 2 3rds
So bad at living

Just a final verse just a final reminder
We can’t live with each other
We can’t live without each other either
We’re full of deep and dark and fucked up desires
And bearing this in mind can we still share saliva?
But if everything we feel is constructed
Or if it’s just animals to which we amount
Better take that conditioning and that desire
And better make it count
'Cos I can’t really judge anyone unless
I’ve thrown the first Molotov
At all the bullshit that I came out of
And the memes that they constantly type
They say nothing to me about my life

7 8ths and 2 3rds
No I’m not a nihilist
7 8ths and 2 3rds
But we’re too self-righteous
7 8ths and 2 3rds
And as I remove my clothes
I’m a hypocrite I know
But I want
No more us and them
No more blame no shame
Let’s be bad and let’s be wrong
Because I thought that was the point all along!
