about

This song was written early on in my physical transition from male to female. In those days it was very common for people to clock me as a transsexual with any tiny cue. Many people live with this their entire lives.

lyrics

When I wake up
Sometimes my voice betrays me
When I shake hands, no matter how perfect the manicure
They'll always see the paws of a man
I used to cry a lot but now I cry a whole lot more
And every time I cry I make a face that stabs me in the back
When I smile too much
And when I don't smile enough

Clocked. Clocked. Clocked. I fucking get clocked.

When I break down
Sometimes my voice betrays me
When I have to reveal my medical history
When people pry and pry and pry too much into my past
When i smile too much
And when I dont smile enough

Clocked. Clocked. Clocked. I fucking get clocked.

This is what they taunt us for
This is what they beat us for
This is what they rape us for
This is what they kill us for
