STAR!

pickles-CU-300x243

I am the star of your Hollywood Lesbian Fantasy Movie.
I am cold and untouchable, beautiful beyond your wildest dreams.
I am the star of your Hollywood Lesbian Fantasy Movie.

Dangerously educated, smart like a whip,
I am cracking against your stupid male skull
I am beating you out of your high paying job,
I am stealing your beautiful wife.
I am your fantasy, I am the s t a r!

I am scratching out your eyes,
I am slapping your face,
I am ripping you apart with an icepick.
I am shooting you down,
I am killing you with kindness,
screwing up your perfect life,
seducing your neighbor’s wife.
I am your fantasy,
I am the star.

I am fucking you over, you stupid suburban man,
I am making you obsolete.
I am stealing your children,
I am changing your laws,
I am strapping one one,
I am giving you strife,
I am fucking your wife,
I am fucking your wife,
I am fucking your wife!

I am your fantasy,
I am the star, I am your Hollywood Lesbian fantasy star,
I am your Hollywood fantasy s t a r,
I am the star!
