"Return to the Closet" as written by and Dennis/sandstrom Lyxzen....
The game is over
Damage is done
Fuck you for
Playing along
Break through the surface
Only to suffocate

Beating it into me - Beating it into me
Burn witches as found
But not this time

Culture aquires love design
Culture aquires love design
This people culture aquires love design
This culture

Left naked with nothing but ourselves and contempt for what we're not supposed to be,
not supposed to feel, not supposed to see.

I will embrace you
I will embrace you
We're all beautiful
We're all beautiful

Culture aquires love design
Culture aquires love design
This people culture aquires love design
Culture

We all return
Confrontation cuts
In the closet
Can't get up
We all return
We all return
We all return

Another definition to keep control
With assorted names we know where to belong
Another definition to keep control
With assorted names we know where to belong

    General Commentthis song is about how we forget about human rights b/c its not as visible. Its about how ppl r brainwashed to believe that everyone has to be heterosexual, boys learn not to cry or hug, we admire the stud and despise the slut, and worship the nuclearfamily. sexism and homophobia are problems just like racism and fascism. Its just harder to see. Destroy prejudice. Destory stereotypes

    General CommentHey. Im german. So my englisch isnt very well.
    I feel that you are right, shapeofapunk. But could you explain in which lines or which words mean that we should not care about who is homophobia .. like that.. i'd be nice.

    Exspcailly the verses
    "Fuck you for playing along. Break through the surface only to suffocate"
    And.. what is the "closet"? And why should we return to it?
    Thanks!

    General Commentallaboutlyrics: the "closet" is a metaphorical term for the place where homosexuals who are in denial of their sexuality reside. to "come out of the closet" is to publicly admit to your sexuality. i'd say that to "return to the closet" in this context would be to return to hiding your orientation from the general public, as homosexuality is still largely frowned upon.

    General CommentHello, I was wondering about the last 15 seconds of that song, when you can hear the ending of another song being played... Does anybody know which song that is?
