    Romanovsky And Phillips One of The Enemy текст песни

    One of The Enemy

    (This song was suggested to me by a high school teacher who said
    That being unable to defend homosexuality makes him feel like he
    Is «one of the oppressors» in the eyes of his gay and lesbian
    Students. the enemy is everyone, gay or straight, who passively
    Supports oppression by their silence.)

    Every day I go to work
    I’m there to teach integrity
    But how can I teach anything
    With a closet door in front of me

    ‘Cause when I look out at the faces
    One or two see through the lies
    And when I look right back at them
    I see the pain of my own youth in their eyes

    And it breaks my heart
    And it makes me feel ashamed to wear this mask
    Each day from 8 to 3
    I can’t reach out
    To the ones who need a friend
    So I must pretend to be
    One of the enemy

    Every year a hundred faces
    Staring blindly up at me
    How I want to tell the truth
    Instead of teaching history

    But for job security
    I don’t dare say a word
    And so my good intentions fade
    And my thoughts of love are left unheard

    And it hurts my pride
    And I hate to have to hide myself away
    Each day from 8 to 3
    I can’t reach out
    To the ones who need a friend
    So I must pretend to be
    One of the enemy
    To the boys who leave the girls behind
    To the girls with more than boyfriends
    On their minds
    I can’t reach out
    To the ones who need a friend
    So I must pretend to be
    I must pretend

    Maybe someday I’ll find a way
    (Some day soon I’ll find a way)
    To comfort them (to calm their fears)
    And let them know that things will change
    If they can make it through these years
