Hanging on the street it’s Saturday night / Fake lashes, pink wig, yeah you feel alright

All the boys dream of becoming queens / Cause the Queens of Queens they rule the scene

Five-O’s cruising for their own kinda action tonight / Bored with the Blacks and Mexicans they frisk all the time

They figure makeup on a man makes for a whore in the bed / Don’t matter if they ever see money change hands

So pass those drugs to your whitest friend / the one who deals anyway just to pay for college / or that straight looking guy in his suit and tie / who happens to turn tricks for investment tips

They can cop a feel, but they’ll never make us squeal

Wasting away in a holding cell. You’re losing your mind / No one’s got the cash to bail you out this time / Just another instance of getting dicked / by the police and not for kicks


from Defeatism!, released August 16, 2019
