I have seen it in my dreams night and day
The only constant thing in life is that there's change
While I grow the garbage I hope slips away
I was raised a straight boy but I'm not today
I was raised a straight boy but I'm not today

I was taught that pink's for girls and blue is for boys
I was given guns to play with and army toys
And if these things took on a certain gender sway
Well I was raised a straight boy but I'm not today
There are even words boys aren't suppose to say

Now we've all had our problems with our family care
We've seen contradictions and we sit and stare
Mimicking our parents from childhood days
Scared to make decisions in a brand new way
We were raised straight boys but we're not today

Now I've grown accustom to myself and my style
I have a sense of freedom and it feels just great
When I feel myself returning to my child
I know Im just reacting and it's way too late
I'm always reacting and it's way too late
