Otep – Royals [Lorde]


This song seems like it was tailor made for Otep to cover…

Artist: Otep
Album: Generation Doom
Year: 2016

Lyrics:
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
Trippin’ in the bathroom
Blood stains
Ball gowns
Trashin’ 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 luxe 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

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

But every song’s like
Gold teeth
Grey goose
Trippin’ in the bathroom
Blood stains
Ball gowns
Trashin’ 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 luxe 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

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

And we’ll never be royals (royals)
It don’t run in our blood
That kind of luxe 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
