Otep – Royals Lyrics

from album: Generation Doom (2016)
(Lorde cover)

[Verse 1]
I've never seen a diamond in the flesh
I cut my teeth on wedding rings in the movies
And I'm not proud of my address
In the torn up town
No post code envy

But every song's like gold teeth, Grey Goose
Tripping in the bathroom
Blood stains, ball gowns
Trashing the hotel room
We don't care
We're driving Cadillacs in our dreams
But everybody's like Cristal, Maybach
Diamonds on your timepiece
Jet planes, islands
Tigers on a gold leash
We don't care
We aren't caught up in your love affair

And we'll never be royals (royals)
It don't run in our blood
That kind of lux just ain't for us
We crave a different kind of buzz
Let me be your ruler (ruler)
You can call me queen bee
And I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule
Let me live that fantasy

[Verse 2]
My friends and I we've cracked the code
We count our dollars on the train to the party
And everyone who knows us knows
That we're fine with this
We didn't come from money



We're bigger than we ever dreamed
And I'm in love with being queen
Life is great, without a care
We aren't caught up in your love affair
