"Changes" started out as song about Tess Raunig's non-binary gender identity. It evolved into a piece about all binaries that exist in society, and how they exist to limit and control people.



Looking out at the world
Time keeps moving, with every turn
Change is the only constant
And it only gets faster, let’s be honest

The more that I see, the less I can fear the inescapable. Oh change is inescapable
The more I feel free, the more I can see myself, be as I really am, oh as I really am

Realize things aren't always as they seem
Recognize there are in betweens
We're so caught up in the dance of “this” or “that”
That we can’t see the truth
This life is what we make it
And the changes are the proof

Being out in the world
Rigid constructs at every turn
We won’t budge, even though it’s obvious
The walls shut us down, it’s killing us

Please let us see, the errors lead us to, this place of despair, oh this place of despair
The wars in our minds, are starving to find, the way to hope again, oh to hope again

We can’t stay in this place, if we want to survive the pain
It’s nature, adapt or die. We have to change, to stay alive
