about

The song is from 2012, a few months before I started coming out as genderqueer. The insecurities I wrote into the lyrics had a lot to do with stress about gender. Since coming out, most of those stresses are finally gone, so this is a bit of a time capsule.

lyrics

I think I'm really ugly
You think you're ugly too
But I'm pretty sure that I'm a whole lot
Uglier than you
I get so sad about it
And nothing makes it right
And when I lie awake that's all I
Think about all night
And boys only do me 'cause I'm easy
And girls only do me 'cause they think they're ugly too
And no one can ever understand me
But you do understand because you think you're ugly too

I think I'm really ugly

I think I'm really ugly
No matter what I do
The clothes I think are pretty look much
Prettier on you
There's no point wearing makeup
I just look like a clown
There's just no point in smiling 'cause it's
Worse than when I frown
And girls can't decide if I'm a "real girl"
And boys only like me 'cause I'm basically a dude
And no one can ever understand me
But you do understand because you think you're ugly too

I think I'm really ugly
