1. N.B.

From the recording Borrowed Lines in Borrowed Time

Words by Ragon Linde and Grey Graham-Atkinson
Music by Ragon Linde


Feel invisible, in plain sight
Based on how, I look and speak
I have a secret I wish everybody knew
Seeking validation for what is true
Express yourself, what you feel
Don’t let norms shut you down
Male or Female be yourself
Outward appearance can deceive
Lipstick and make-up, dresses and tights
There’s more to me than meets the eye
Some would say I’m a plain ‘ole guy
But there’s more to me than meets the eye
Sensitivities on all sides
Blur the boundaries and fuck the roles
Take a moment before you judge
It don’t add up or fit neatly in a box
Open exploration, back and forth
Are you feeling, that way too?
Out or secret, it’s alright!
Gay or straight, somewhere in between
Chose your pronouns that fit your gender
It doesn’t have to match, your genitalia                                      
                        Some say Two Spirit or LGBTQ
As for me, I’m non-Binary
Listen to your feelings
Go beyond the expected and accepted
Design your appearance, plan your look
We change our minds, that’s the point
Some days I’m full of confidence
Some days it’s a struggle between wondering
And seeking validation am I making
Something out of nothing
