I don’t know what you like.
You don’t know what I like.
The head thinks it’s normal,
society thinks it’s wrong.
What you prefer feels delicious to you,
but exposing it is dangerous.
The Internet says it’s ok.
My friends say it’s ok.
I feel like it’s ok… privately.
But the judgment is real.
What’s right and what’s wrong?
Your inner circle doesn’t care.
Absorbed in your version of the unnatural,
it feels good.
But the outer structure is in control,
and pleasures stay hidden.
So back to reality now,
back to bland.
We’ll keep hiding in our world of normal.
Well, some of us.
