about

OK. OK. OK. OK.

A week ago today, our sleepy country awoke to the news that the largest mass shooting in our short history had occurred at a gay nightclub in Orlando. I was in Mexico when the news broke, and I felt completely helpless. Later that day, I learned that another attack, similar in nature, had occurred at a gay club in Veracruz, Mexico a couple weeks prior to the Pulse massacre.

After a one long, hazy day full of headlines and numbers, I sat up that night and wrote and wrote and wrote. Like a lot of you, that’s the only thing I know how to do to declutter my wee brain.

“OK” is the result of that decluttering. It is dedicated to the victims of the massacres at Pulse and La Madame. My team and I shot the accompanying film at Laberinto in Queretaro, Mexico. All proceeds will go to the Human Rights Campaign in the USA and to COPRED, the largest anti-discrimination organization in Mexico.

I would like to thank the Coutiño Brothers for being a kind and giving crew on all sides.
I would like to thank Icaro Teatro for providing the space.
I would like to thank Manuel Coutiño for providing the rehearsal and editing space.

Pass this along to your family and friends.

OK. OK. OK. OK.

lyrics

OK OK
Try and work those lungs boy
And stay oh stay
Cuz the banner ain't been hung yet boy
Don't stray away
From the heart to which you've clung boy
You're not just a glare
In the middle of a nowhere

So c'mon the lights on
Keep 'em up and colorful
Not gone you ain't gone
And you definitely ain't a handful
Cuz I'd fawn over you till dawn
Cuz you're vibrant as you're wonderful
So don't you dare
Run away anywhere

I see no borders here
And your pulse is coming thru right
Loud and clear

So red light green light
Nobody can stop you
Left right that's right
That's the worst that they can do
Hang tight yeah hold tight
The rope is there to tie you to guide you to
The sky the blue

I see no borders here
There are no borders here
We don't have no borders here
And your pulse is coming thru right
Loud and clear

So c'mon 'round boy
Eyes up boy
Stick with me boy
Cuz you're not a number
You still got a name
OK

OK OK
OK OK

I see no borders here
There are no borders here
We don't have no borders here
And your pulse is coming thru right
Loud and clear
Yeah your pulse is coming thru right
Loud and clear
