And by "Queen" you thought they all meant royalty
like they knew your potential
like your high school was a self help book
written on bathroom stalls in pencils
and you knew as long as they kept talking shit you could succeed
and by "Fairy" you thought they knew about your wings

Isn't that one of them way down there?
With the beautiful children
and the thinning hair
and isn't that you way up here
pretending like it got you nowhere

So you packed up your f-a and their g-g-o-t
and you moved it to the country
and you wonder why you compare yourself to the hudson river
then you remember, they put their waste in you
and though your currents tried to fight it
by looking at all the pieces of glass that used to be shiny
that your shores cannot hide

Isn't that one of them way down there?
With the beautiful children
and the thinning hair
and isn't that you way up here
pretending like you still don't care

in order to fly, you've gotta have something to rise above
and is it ok that you have to have hate to have self love

and yes that is one of them down there
that is one of them way down there
and you still don't care
and it got you nowhere
