In Defense of Marriage

Inspired by a man who puts his concept of marriage ahead of individual's rights and takes the idea of love out of the equation. Also inspired by the passage of Prop 8 in California.

Lyrics

It’s all semantics, their conservative antics
They vote to defend it, but they really upend it.

When asked how it’s harmful all he can utter is
“You know, You know.” His mind in the gutter

Marriage is not love anymore
Marriage is not love
It’s a legislated concept that's coming undone

Winning one battle, he starts up another
He wants people in turmoil to stay with each other

To save one marriage is enough to appease him
At the sad expense of thousands of people

Marriage is not love anymore
Marriage is not love
It’s a legislated concept that's coming undone

Defending marriage, It's more than a word
Definitions can change when the lines get blurred

More important than tradition, it's a personal decision
It's not government's role to deny a union of souls

Marriage is not love anymore
Marriage is not love
It’s a legislated concept that's coming undone
