Team Dresch – Musical Fanzine lyrics

She wants to embrace her, however the world will change She wants to feel, but
She can only describe it Don't let the monster stay under the bed, don't' let the
Monster stay under the bed Hey you, say what she needs to hear It's just like
Donna said it depends where you're at in your head you can find what you need
Maybe it's finding a very secret place to hide your copy of Rubyfruit Jungle
Maybe you're writing your own There's a wig wearing boy named psychic Al
What's he's looking for, he won't find in school He stays up late, flipping through
Tapes Listening to songs he's heard a hundred times, but nothing's there Hey you,
Say what he needs to hear queer s** is great, it's fun as shit don't worry Jesus
Is dead and God don't exist and swearing is fun, it's funner than piss, that's it's
Stupid is a cruel and classist myth. Queer s** is great, it's fun as shit, Don't kill
Yourself cause people can't deal with your brilliance Sometimes I can't remember
Why I want to live Then I think of all the freaks and I don't want to miss this It's just
Like Donna said it depends where you're at in your head.

    I take this song is about homosexual young people potentially being driven to suicide by a hostile society. There are two protagonists; the first an un-named woman struggling to express her desire for another woman, but, with help, finding what she needs - the "Ruby Fruit Jungle" mentioned here is Rita Mae Brown's iconic 1973 novel; a strongly autobiographical lesbian coming-of-age story. The second character, a "wig wearing boy named Al", seems to be alone in his room, perhaps hiding in shame. He needs tyo hear that "Queer sex is great"! The Donna who comments "It depends where you're at in your head" may well be Donna Dresch? The final message of the song; "Don't kill yourself because people can't deal with your brilliance", coming from the narrator who has apparently considered suicide herself at some point in the past. This song is magnificent, I wish that every young homosexual could hear it, to know that they are not alone and have the potential to live a wonderful life. After all, queer sex is indeed the best sex you can have!
