I Was Married by Tegan and Sara from the album: The Con

iwillbealethea:

I married in the sun
(tell me where tell me where)
Against the stone of buildings built before
You and I were born
(start again start again)
And to my heart confusion rose against
The muscles fought so long
(fought so long)
To control against the pull of
One magnet to another magnet
To another magnet
Now we look up in
(tell me who tell me who)
To the hours of bodies breaking past
They seem so very tough
(it’s a lie it’s a lie)
They seem so very scared of us
I look into the mirror
(look into)
For evil that just does not exist
I don’t see what they see
(tell them that tell them that)
Try to control the pull of one magnet
To another magnet
To another magnet
To another magnet
To another


“But putting herself out there is not just a musical construction-it also comes naturally in conversation. When discussing Emy Storey-the band’s artistic director and Sara’s girlfriend of five years, with whom she had declared a common-law relationship-Sara was candid about the dissolution of their romance. ‘[Emy] is a tremendously huge part of what Tegan and I do in terms of the artwork and the Web site and the vision,’ she said. ‘In kind of a weird way, she was like my Yoko Ono for five years. : It’s really difficult when the romantic part of your relationship kind of seems like it’s over, but you can’t just dissolve the rest of it-that would be awful. We’re obviously really involved and we want to continue to work together, but it’s really tough.’

Ironically enough, The Con’s opening track, ‘I Was Married,’ was penned by Sara the day she and Emy had declared their relationship. Although rarely overtly political in her songwriting, ‘I Was Married’ is a polemic against those who oppose gay marriage:“They seem so very scared of us / I look into the mirror, for evil that just does not exist / I don’t see what they see.”

I really fucking hate this guy. I never really post hate but I really hate this guy. He is Satan in the flesh.

I smell anti-christ.

did he just agree with the Taliban?… doesn’t he realize that when the Taliban say they want to get rid of homosexuality, they mean they really just want to kill anyone who is gay? So essentially Santorum wants to search out and kill all the gays… no surprised. 

someone shoot this man for the love of god… literally

Breaking Same-Sex Marriage News of the Day: Maryland today officially became the first East Coast state below the Mason-Dixon line to legalize same-sex marriage.
Governor Martin O’Malley signed the state’s marriage equality bill this afternoon after the Maryland House and Senate passed the legislation on Feb. 17th and 23rd, respectively.
“For a free and diverse people, for people of many faiths, for people committed to the principal of religious freedom,” O’Malley said at the signing ceremony, “the way forward is always found through grater respect for human rights of all, through human dignity for all.”
Same-sex couples won’t be able to get married until January, when the law formally takes effect. Until then, there is still a chance opponents could successfully petition to have the issue placed on November’s ballot. To do so, they would need at least 55,736 valid signature from Maryland voters.
Seven states — CT, IA, MA, NH, NY, VT, WA — and Washington D.C. currently recognize the right of same-sex couples to marry. However, Washington state’s newly signed bill still needs to fend off a the threat of referendum in order to take effect this June.
