Thumbtack
On this sun-bleached and beaten-up map
Worn soft
I know my way around
But I'm driving blind now
Armed for no good reason
I have switched gears
Even though the water is fine
It's not time to deep sea dive
I do not want to hold us back
Or push us forward
Teaching you to bite my bottom lip just right
You learn fast
I want, when you undress me
For me to be beautiful

I'm afraid of rocking this huge and horrible boat
But I want to with you
Would it scare you
If we could change the world
By holding hands in plain view
In broad daylight
Imagine that!
If I said I wanted to
With you
It must be so easy to do what people do
Without hesitation or fear of becoming the new strange fruit

Armed for no good reason
I have switched gears
Even though the water is fine
It's not time to deep sea dive
And I'm driving blind now

    General CommentMan, I'm not gay but this guy can really show you what it's like in this society. We straight couples take for granted the fact that we can hold hands and kiss without everybody staring and laughing or even turning violent on us. I'm guessing the "strange fruit" bit is a Billie Holliday reference. The term was used by her as metaphor for the black lynchings of her time.
