The Stonewall Bar was raided
We did not like the owner
The cops came in without warning
And all the dancing stopped

If you had your ID you left peacefully like me
If you had your ID you left peacefully like me

Paid goons started the riot
the stonewall kids were shot
These paid goons they were hired
to see the bar was torn apart
20 years later they put my clone on TV
They even dressed him up so that he would look just like me
Don't you believe the stories that they write about that night
The stonewall kids had good jobs and all of us were white
Everyone takes credit for what happened on that night
And all of them seem happy while I'm drugged to be uptight
I did not get any favors from the ones who used my clone
In fact they owe me money from when my SSI was stopped
Now they will not pay me
And offer me no explanation why
And I know that they don't need me because they got my clone instead
They harass me and they torture me thinking I will kill myself
But instead I outsmart them with the music that I sell
Now my clone has replaced me
But they cannot replace my soul
So if you see me and I don't know you its not me but my clone instead
I sing this little warning to all of my close friends
Who maybe tortured with me until my story ends
Its true that they don't need you, they'll use your clone instead
And arrange a little accident to make the real you dead
