Special Snowflakes we may be, but when enough of us get together, the landscape changes.


Well aren't you special?
A special snowflake.
Do you even know if you're a man,
Or something not quite defined?
Well yes I know,
Exactly what I am.
And if you can't deal with that,
There's a million more,
Just like me.
Just like me.

Snowflakes pile so deep,
Tension builds within them.
When it all gets too much,
The avalanche breaks,
Crushing everything in its way.
Sweep it away.
Crushing everything.
Sweep it all away.

Well aren't they special?
Special snowflakes.
Hiding from the world,
Wondering when they get their due.
Well yes we are.
And we're not hiding anymore,
From the shame of being led
By all the dicks left in this world.


We're coming for you.
Coming to bury you.
And all the fear and hate,
You've used to keep us apart.
And we won't be stopped,
So you're going to have to fade away,
Go quietly,
Into the night.
