How Many?

How many roads can a gay man walk down
Before they will call him a man?
How many times must a gay man cry out
Before his voice can be heard?

And how many gays must take their lives
Until we know to many have died?
The answer my friend lies with you and me
The answer lies with you and me

How many years must they wear their chains
Before they’re allowed to be free?
How many years can gays exist
Before all will notice and see?

How can they turn theirs back on gays
pretend ing they just cant see
The answer my friend lies with you and me
The answer lies with you and me.

How many times can a gay man look up
Without being knocked to the ground
How many times can a gay man try to rise
Before they allow him around

And how much hate must a gay man be around
Before its forever bound
The answer my friend lies with you and me
The answer lies with you and me.
