about

We asked for a single word this time, and you gave us "candy". Well, Mika's "Lollipop" and Marcy Playground's "Sex and Candy" already started a theme, but we wanted to do something a bit different. We wanted to make an angry genderqueer punk rock song, and it felt damn good.

lyrics

They told me boys are bitter
They told me girls are sweet
I told them you can't tell me who to be or what to eat

I'm taking off the wrapper
Yeah read my painted lips
And I'm delicious from my styled hair down to my hips

I'm so sweet
I'll crack your teeth
So fucking bite me
I'm hard candy

They said the boys are hungry
They said the girls are meat
I told them you can't tell me who to be or what to eat

I'm so sweet
I'll crack your teeth
So fucking bite me
I'm hard candy

They told me boys are bitter
They told me girls are sweet
I told them you can't tell me who to be or what to eat

I'm so sweet
I'll crack your teeth
So fucking bite me
I'm hard candy
