I'm the sixth queen
I'm the wrong queen
I've got mascara running through my bloodstream
I'm on the hot step
I've got a broken heart
I want to be a cherry lipped little cheap tart

There's a boy with a monobrow and club foot
And his family own all his villages huts
So I'll travelled to New York
And sold my crotch for a dollar and a short

But there's a symphony in my heart
But I lost all my morals
Down an alleyway, boot polish, sky gaze
Bloody murder, my life has moved in strangeways
I was the sixth queen from the start
But I cast all my morals
On a tube train, boot polish, sky gaze
Bloody murder my life has moved in strangeways

I've got secrets trapped in my fishnets
I'm a coward man that works in an office block
I was a child who craved for a new world
I was a boy who yearned to be a cover girl
I read the history and learnt about the six queens
I decided life should be about playing for the other team
I broke society wit a lipstick shot
Now my life has grown for old to hot

But there's a symphony in my heart
But I lost all my morals
Down an alleyway, boot polish, sky gaze
Bloody murder, my life has moved in strangeways
I was the sixth queen from the start
But I cast all my morals
On a tube train, boot polish, sky gaze
Bloody murder my life has moved in strangeways

But theres a tragedy in my heart
And I've lost all my morals
Down an alleyway, boot polish, sky gaze
Bloody murder, my life has moved in strangeways
I was the sixth queen from the start
But I cast all my morals
On a tube train, boot polish, sky gaze
Bloody murder my life has moved in strangeways

    Very confusing.

    General Comment"I learnt the history, and read about the six queens."
    I keep getting this feeling its about the six wives Herny VIII had. It would make sense.
    Its about a transexual, too.

    General CommentI think both verses about two different people.

    I think the first is quite obviously about a young, awkward, homosexual boy who grows up and moves to New York and becomes a prostitute, in a nutshell.

    The second gives me the impression of a middle aged man working in a corporate office who has always secretly yearned to be a woman. After much research on the whole deal he finally made the jump, so to say.

    While both characters are happy, in a sense, they're also quite tragic.

    General CommentThere is this boy who struggles to show his real identity to the world. He feels like a little girl is screaming inside his body.

    He is trapped inside the conservative beliefs of his family. So, he followed his heart and he decided to travel away from his home to New York where he can come out of his closet as a girl. He kept his life quite secretly that is why it was said in the song that he was a 'coward man who works in an office block.' He broke the society that he is in by following his responsibility to himself to be gay.
