A new love becomes available once we detangle the real from the unreal. A wasteland becomes a world.

Some of us are hypersexualized in media and popular imagination, and--once we tune in beyond the preconceptions we inherited about ourselves--we can love each other in a snuggily, fun, healthy sorta way.

There is something here worth celebrating, turning a wasteland into a world.


The world ain’t safe
for an open mind
Beyond on our island
it’s trying times

And Sami i don’t want us so
want us so
far apart
The world ain’t safe
for an open heart

Don’t go, Sami
don’t go
Don’t go, Sami
don’t go

I know that living in this wasteland
is sometimes hard
but bare feet on riverbed!
We got elders swimming
these Ozark streams
and young queers climb amid
these ozark trees
Can ya hear me?

Ain’t it better here?

Could ya maybe
plant here your heart
plant here your heart
plant here your heart?

Don’t go, Sami
don’t go
Don’t go, Sami
don’t go

And Sami
I want you whole
and I know it means
you gotta go
but just so you know

where I am
you’ve always got
a home.

Don’t go, Sami
don’t go
Don’t go, Sami
don’t go

-- When we met and Pink Crush and everything was there
I felt like I’d finally found my people after 2 and a half years
-- I know. It’s so magical.
-- Yeah.
