Bodies are confusing
They are fragile and built to break
Sometimes they come with extra parts
By some joke or by mistake

And when you're finally old enough
To get the most outta what you got
There's so much guilt and shame
Built up that your self worth is shot

But I want you to

Lift that veil
Let your mustache free
You don't have to exist within
That old dichotomy
Wear that dress
And look good doing it
Let that corset hug you
And don't let anyone ruin it

Cause you are

Rose Old Rose
Lord and master of Love Hall
He who strikes a beautiful pose
And then crushes the cricket ball
She who pilgrimaged alone
to Salmacis Fountain
Where she stared her body down
And was reborn upon the mountain

Abandoned on a trash heap
And a savoir so bizarre
Parents who gave you everything
But the truth of what you are

A lifetime of denial
And something finally clicks
You are strong and versatile
And if you're not broke don't fix

So you can

Let them stare
Let them be obscene
Let yourself be who you are
You're twice the human being
Let them call you names like
Lady Skimmington
Let them try
To make you just like them

But you are

Rose Old Rose
Lord and master of Love Hall
He who curtsies, bows and poses
And then crushes the cricket ball
She who pilgrimaged alone
to Salmacis Fountain
Where she stared her body down
And was reborn upon the mountain

A murderer and a dogboy
A siren and a priest
Your family got the best of you
But then woke your sleeping beast

Ain't it just like a family
To try to keep you from what is yours
Ain't it just like a family
To help you fight all of your wars

So I want you

Cross your family's line
Show them who is boss
Show them you don't have to choose
Random ass coin toss
Lift that veil
Let your mustache shine
The face that launched 1000 songs
A face of your own design
