“We are a collective of freaks, faggots, friends, lovers, and favorites that will never stop existing. infinite and never ending. No one is going to kill us, we are going to live forever. And the first single ‘Love,’ is about us celebrating our existence and being excited to share love.”

2. Affection & Care.
i also deserve to be shown affection and care. direct communication is mandatory for being a part of my life. i will not settle just to have you invade my life. i’ve learned and will continue to learn. it’s mandatory for me to be alive. i will not settle for anything less without discussion. you aren’t better than me. i’m not better than you. if you’re coming from a place of wanting, needing, or aggressively showing power: this isn’t going to work. it will never work.
3. Staying Alive w/ Stephen Inman
Fuck it! we’re going to see how long we can live, How much we can save, How many friends we can make, And who we can forgive. We’re making plans and lists. Imperfect and dangerous. Staying alive for the fuck of it. Staying alive for the fight. Staying alive for our enemies. Staying alive out of spite. No hope remains inside us but we’ll stay. We’re feeling ourselves. We’re not killing ourselves: Slowly or otherwise.
Recording this record sucks when you have hernias. Meet all our friends.
5. That Malcolm X Tattoo Is NOT For You.
You have crimethinc on your bookshelf and can quote Audre Lorde. Doesn’t make you my ally. There’s privilege in the things that you adorn yourself with. Did you ever stop and think about what you believe you are entitled to? My body, their culture, you think it’s all yours.
No I won’t know you for the sake of the… Anti-everything.
7. Dyke Faggot Freak.
The human body is a fucking joke and I’m the punch line. I want to see you choke on your fucking laugh. I’ve always been a freak, a dyke and a fag. You want to play a crying game and I can see you start to gag. Repelled by most and Impressed by few. Unable to reproduce a breeding modern class, unable to reproduce sexuality. Does my naked skin impress you or repel you? I don’t want to be like you. I just want to be the freak you always told me i was. I don’t want to be like you, I Just want to be a fucking freak, a dyke, a fag. I don’t want to fucking be like you.
8. Assimilation (Nervous Condition)
Every minute in America, queers everywhere are being asked to assimilate into a sexist, racist, fucked up society. Join the military? Get married FUCK YOU! Never forget the jails that trap and consume. Never forget they were created for you. And you want me to participate? NO WAY!!
9. File Under: Useless Bullshit.
You would die for them fists in the air. A martyr. A saint. But you pinned me til I tasted carpet. I asked you why I thought it’d be romantic, you said. “Like weapons of mass destruction.” Heavy intent. No consent.
10. Little White Dress.
Little white dress. Jesus Christ had a best friend in Magdalene. You can’t say shit that would make me ashamed. I’ll cover up my knees. Forgive me PLEASE. I am just fourteen but your church don’t like my body. Make me hide my skin, sweating sin through my cardigan. You won’t break your bread now that your god don’t like me.
11. Fuck You Dad.
Fuck you dad. you’re addicted to money, sex, and alcohol. Fuck you mom. you’re addicted to god. You’re both (we’re all) completely fucked and so am i. so are we all and so am i. there’s nothing left to deny.
12. TLC No Scums (Anomaly)
I promised myself I would kill you, even if it’s only in my head. No Scum Left Behind. I’ll wear your blood, you’ll never even know. No Scum, Left Behind.
13. All Our Friends Are Babes.
We’ll never try to please you and your idea of beauty. Media fed, white washed, bred thin, starving, sad, and broke.
14. Y’all Are Precious.
i’ll always continue to thank you all for keeping me alive through it all. y’all are precious.
15. Friendship Addiction(My Prescription).
if laughter was the best medicine, I wouldn’t need a pill for a pill. you keep me happy and healthy without a pill for a pill. my prescription: friendship addiction. no pill for a pill.
16. Consensual Naughty Bodies.
my body is feeling naughty in a nice way right now. who’s up for make outs with consent at the moment? thank you. thank you for being beautiful and making me feel visible.
17. The Sexxxy Flexxxi Theme Song.
often negativity gets the best of me. so this sexxxy flexxxi is positive. we keep our friends involved. it helps to absolve the things that have been so depressive.
18. Always Make Shit.

20. We Love All Trans Femmes And Support You Forever And Ever.
it’s not about what if, it’s about when. how can we stay alive? we’re being murdered by our own parents. beat to death and suicide. we’re being offed everyday by our own hand when its not yours.

This one’s for us…
33. Nøt Før Yøu
You think you’re the reason we exist? It’s quite the opposite. There’s not one thing we do that concerns you. You’re not a part of this and you won’t be and you can’t be. We’re not for you.
34. Yøu Can’t Kill Us
One by one you’re trying to kill us off. You can’t erase us. Coming out of closets and into the streets. Arming ourselves to the teeth. You can’t kill us.
35. A Prømise / T.D.Ø.V.
As a trans woman- staying alive is the hardest thing to do. I’m trying to keep a promise. If i can’t stay alive for myself; i’ll try to do it for you. No more patience and no more talks. No more transphobes escaping us. No empathy for ignorance. We’ll show no mercy if you come after us. every day is trans day of vengeance.
36. Trans Wøman Dies Øf Øld Age
It might be out of spite but i will not kill myself. i will stay alive. No one’s going to kill me including myself. I’m going to live forever. The headline will read “Trans woman dies of old age.” She outlived her enemies. Homophobes rolling in their graves.
37. Murdered By A Wøman
You want to shame me and try to kill me. You want to make my sisters say my name. Don’t you touch me and don’t you think i won’t make your obituary read “Murdered by a woman.” We’re gonna live forever. We’re gonna live…
You made me squirt for the first time and it never felt more right. I felt like I was thirteen years old again at 35. You make me feel like the woman I am. You’re magical. You’re wanderful. Good vibrations.
I know this world is not made for us but, oh my dog, i hope that we can have the strength and wiggle room to be able to make each other laugh sometimes and remember that we deserve happiness. because we do!

53. I Will Die 4 U.
I am a woman. I’m not a man. I am something that they will never understand. i will beat them all. i will die for femmes.

I hate every man that hates women. femme for femme forever.
75. Worthless. Rotten. Ruined. w/ Shawna Potter
Always worthless, rotten, & ruined if we’re not perfect for men in this world we’ve been conditioned in to be subservient and bow at your feet like good listening women. No more. Is it the anger of men that will destroy us? Accused of deception, despised while living, forgotten while safely dead.
76. Invocation Of Disgust. w/ Emily And Bryan Funck
Let the rank tongue blossom. Recite the barbarous names. Feel a savage pleasure, perverse, and cruel delight. Exist. Nothing. Crawled up and made our way. narrow thoughts we re only in pain. what is this moving like us beneath our feet? it is the only thing: Nothing. An ethereal sheen to mask the prison of an existence we’ll never understand. We only exist. There is nothing above or below the one sun that isn’t dead.
77. I Hate My Life. Run With It. w/ Marissa Paternoster
Change the channel. Nothing’s on- Only shit. It’s all depressing and I’m the star of it. Reruns & endless syndication. They said “just watch it until the end!” but I hate it and I’m stopping right now. The end. Channel my mystery. I am terrified. Except in death: This vessel is a lie.

82. Space Eaters On

84. For Kylee.
The hidden parts inside of us, that can’t be seen by anybody, sometimes they take over and we can’t be saved. Your choice is your own. Saving yourself sometimes looks like a razor, or a bullet, or a bottle. i’ll say it till I’m dead though, “we are here for you no matter what you do.”
85. Devils Advocate w/ Planet Jackpot
Some things are not open for debate. Some things are no open to conversation. Some opinions will get your ass beat.
86. Harsh Noise Cracked My Egg w/ Diva Karr
Played black metal at the noise show, started drinking on the ride home because it all crashed around me as I was trying to conjure traumas and mistakes to show the crowd some measure of my pain. But that night I had something new to add: I’m not a man. I can’t ever return, though I tried. When the noise ends it’s like you hear for the first time. But for me, I knew before it even began.
87. Where Dreams Go To Die W/ E
what’s the point to make a new home when you’re all alone, afraid that you’ll fade. it’s not easy to be open for all to see, as weak as a bee, stranded at sea. failure has always taught us that now is not the time to say i can’t survive. i can’t define. i can’t rely on my own.
88. Suffer On Live W/ Anna Orchid
Take nothing from me. All that you see isn’t for you. A bleeding heart in the comments. Cishet gaze hoarding clout. You never seem to put your money where your mouth is. Should I shove nails thru my palms on instagram live? I am not a sight for the cishet leer, want you to know Trans suffering isn’t played out for you because you’ve never experienced Three bands on the bill, four men at your car – waiting for “the faggot.” Have I suffered enough for you?
89. Brain Mush W/ Eve Hydrazine
Heart turns empty like my calendar. Mind grows porous like a colander. Soul as empty as my calendar. Memory porous like a colander. Stress of life too much to handle. Brain melts at both ends like a candle. Make a wish.

spite everyone despite everything we care about and who we choose to trust.
91. Illegally Foster Youth. W/ Pauli Zapata
Adoption as forced immigration. White Standards for assimilation. Numb eyes in my citizenship photo. Illegal means against the law But I am “legal” and against the law… Guess we’ll just call it a draw. Actually just get off my lawn. Off my land. Get off my land. ugh.
92. Poz w/ Belted Sweater & Christopher Patrick Gregory
Junk sick, We’ve held the dead, Mother of the Haus of clean needles now. Silence is death, Miasma made flesh, Defiler of love, Burroughs Welcome, Bullish on blood, Profiteering, dead.
93. Outnumbered Pt 2 w/ Clair
pacification. peaceful obedience. leaving us outnumbered. leaving us. leaving us for dead. dead.
94. Home ‘Crete Home w/ E
