“Fire Away”

lyrics by Aaron Levitz
music by the Velveteen

Speak, geek. Turn the other cheek.
Don’t you know the meek will inherit when you’re gone?
Tweak, freak. Don’t fear the unique.
You may think I’m weak but I’ve never been so strong.

Fire away!
Sticks and stones won’t break my heart.
Fire away!
(Come on!)

Race. Chase. Stop running in place.
Don’t you ever think I would take advice from fools.
Chaste. Waste. Get out of my face.
Love is everywhere, and it don’t follow no rules.

Straight. Gay. Don’t care what you weigh.
I ain’t gonna say that there’s one right way to live.
Stay. Pray. Bigots on display.
Hate’s the only sin that you know I can’t forgive.

Fire away!
I will turn the other cheek.
Fire away!
I am strong and you are weak.
No matter what you do or what you say,
you’ll never break me down. Fire away.

(solo)

Don’t hate. Let’s communicate.
Translate. Discombobulate.
Debate. Circumnavigate.
Relate. Don’t discriminate.

Fire away!
Sticks and stones won’t break my heart.
Fire away!
All my pain becomes my art.
No matter what you do or what you say
(no matter what you do or what you say)
You’ll never break me down.
