lyrics

To those having trouble staying on their feet, working the painful 40 just to make ends meet. Wages getting garnished for your medical bills and the boss is cracking down as your absences build. To those chasing after a life now gone, feeling shut out, isolated, and alone. You got sick and stepped out for a couple of months, you got forgotten, came back, and everyone had moved on. You stopped inviting me out to shows or the bar, I couldn’t even get out to the grocery store. I stopped calling ‘cuz you don’t come round, I guess you just don’t care. When I tried to explain you said you understood but that was the last fucking time I ever heard from you. I’m a really busy dude, ain’t got time to just sit around. Convert all of our pain into rage! Sharpen all of our spoons into shanks! It’s no one’s fault that you feel uncomfortable, it’s just sad that you are, more willing to make an accommodation for a friend with a dog than a friend with a wheelchair. Invincible not invisible! Though they tried to erase you. Invincible not invisible! We're still fucking here! To the radical organizers hard at the work, using able bodied standards of productivity as a metric to judge another human being's worth. You're no better than the fucking bosses to me! To all the anti-civ pieces of shit advocating for a world where we can longer exist. To all the edgy cool kids with their ableist jokes I see you all and I'm fucking making a list. Fuck you! You don’t look that sick. Fuck you! Why is it always about you? Fuck you! Why don’t you ever come out? We're still fucking dangerous! Fuck you! Can’t you see you’re bumming me out? Fuck you! Have you tried yoga, do you meditate? Fuck you! Stop being so needy. We're still fucking here! Every pitying look or snide remark cuts deeper than doctor’s scalpels. This disease isn’t what keeps folks from being a part of your scene, it’s just people like you. Invincible not invisible! Though they tried to erase you. Invincible not invisible! We're still fucking here!
