***All revenue generated by this song will be donated to Equality Michigan (www.equalitymi.org), in hopes that we may end our hateful and murderous culture. Please be generous!***

Disclaimer: this song does not necessarily represent the views of anybody else.

This song was written on June 13th 2016, the day after the slaughter of 50 people at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando. We sarcastically celebrate every person in America who ever treated an LGBTQ person as less than human, because your insistence that we are undeserving of love and happiness leads us into some really dark places, and your devaluation of our lives makes killing us that much easier.

Every baker who refused to bake a cake for a gay wedding, every person who sent hate mail to Target over their bathroom policies, every lawmaker (regardless of party) who stands or ever stood in the way of queer liberation… every one of these people did their part. Each one got us just a little bit closer to the Orlando massacre.

One person is ultimately responsible for the mechanics of the rampage, but he was only able to do so because millions more people implicitly gave their blessing. Millions have blood on their hands.

lyrics

You’ve got their blood on your hands
You’ve got their blood on your hands
You told the killer to go ahead

Be proud of all you’ve accomplished
Your words realized into violence
Dehumanize and discriminate
For a safer place to hate
You thought you only were speaking
But you were part of the mission succeeding
You played your role and deserve the win
You’re a conqueror of sin

Congratulations, you did it, hats off to you

You’ve got their blood on your hands
You’ve got their blood on your hands
You told the killer to go ahead

Accept this pat on the back, sir
You murder fags like a master
All from the comfort of your own home
But you never were alone
Could not have done this without you
Schools will teach lessons about you
Your great-grandchildren will tell your tale
Your glory shall prevail

Congratulations, you did it, hats off to you

You’ve got their blood on your hands
You’ve got their blood on your hands
You told the killer to go ahead
