Queen Of Queen City

I respect it because you're bringing a good sound. 

And you make it sound different than people expect.

Excuse me, ma'am

Excuse me, sir

Fam, pal, dude, whatever your identifier

He/him, they/them, she/her

I'll use whatever combination of pronouns you prefer

My name is molly. I like to mess around with words

It's kind of absurd, the way I know to lay down a verse

I'll blow your mind with styles and rhymes you probably never have heard

Don't give a fuck about the mess, I'll get your brains on my shirt

This is your warning, I have an interest in dissecting

All the creepy, dark shit that you've been repressing

Been intrigued by everything inside since I was a child

Straight-laced suburban parents saw no sense in the style

Never quite the right demeanor or the sociable type

But couldn't keep the words from coming when I sat down to write

Weird kid sulking on south side sidewalks alone

I didn't know one day I'd finally find my place on the throne

Where's my crown?

Everybody gather 'round

When you hear that sound

I'm the Queen of Queen City

Shout out to my hometown

Where's my crown?

Everybody gather 'round

When you hear that sound

I'm the Queen of Queen City

Shout out to my hometown

Born a Capricorn so I'm always the GOAT

But it's hard to gloat when nobody's showing up for the show

I tried to up my game and boost some social media posts

So many catfish in my inbox, you can call me Bass Pro

But I digress, it can be a lot to digest

When all your offers are accepted only in acquiesce

And then you hit the stage and give them every word with finesse

Horseplay in my delivery, Pony Express

I'm guaranteed to bring the party and I just won't quit

Act up so much you'd think I took lessons from Goodman and Pitt

Seasonal favorite, summer sweet, something like Pineapple Whip

Refresh your palette even better when I get a little twisted

So put your hands up if you're misunderstood

And know that you can do more than they ever thought that you could

This is my city, grew up here in the SGF

It's time I stake my rightful claim as ruler of the midwest

Where's my crown?

Everybody gather 'round

When you hear that sound

I'm the Queen of Queen City

Shout out to my hometown

Shout out to my hometown

Shout out to my hometown

Cookin' something in my kitchen

Local classic, cashew chicken

Serve it up a little different

Auditorily delicious

I'm a lyrical magician

Disappear the competition

With these rhymes that I've been rippin'

Loose cannon, ammunition

Hit the mark, I never miss it

When I go a bit ballistic

'Cuz I know they won't admit that

I deserve more recognition

People tend to get suspicious

When your vision's so prodigious

I don't need to ask permission

Not a pauper, not a princess

Where's my crown?

Everybody gather 'round

When you hear that sound

I'm the Queen of Queen City

Shout out to my hometown

Where's my crown?

Everybody gather 'round

When you hear that sound

I'm the Queen of Queen City

Shout out to my hometown

WOMO

If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. Why, in my world...

Cats and rabbits

Would reside in fancy little houses

They'd be dressed in shoes and hats and trousers

In a world of my own

All the flowers

Would have very extra special powers

They'd sit and talk to me for hours when I'm lonely

In a world of my own

There'd be bluebirds

Lots of nice and friendly howdy-do birds

Everyone would have a dozen bluebirds

Within that world of my own

I need a rainbow, I need the sun

I need to scrub up the things that I've done

I can get hooked on the pain like a drug

Might not make sense to you, but if it does

I hope you know you can still break the cycle

Grow your own world from the power inside you

When you have thoughts, when decisions are final

In the end this is about your survival

Some days you wonder if everything's worth it

I know that perspective, I often observe it

Easy to say when you fall you deserve it

When they expect everything to be perfect

If I was happy, if I was good

Maybe then I'd do the things that I should

Maybe I wouldn't be misunderstood

I'd make a place just like that if I could

None of the pressure to cloud up my vision

Only a world of my own composition

Pardon me if I take an intermission

To get myself into a better condition

Tear out my guts, send them out with the tide

Float around without that weight left inside

But I get stuck when I try to decide

Why I can't mend up that space in my mind

Once in a while I dream up my bliss

I know it isn't a permanent fix

'Cuz the light that I make always ends up eclipsed

By the darkness inside me, my mind's playing tricks

All I want is a place where I can rest

Shouldn't be hard to tune out and reset

But this world suffocates when I take in a breath

So I'll make up my own world to hide in, I guess

 

I would listen to a babbling brook

And hear a song that I could understand

I keep wishing it would be that way

Then my world could be a wonderland

ghosts

You believe in ghosts

That's why I love you the most

'Cuz the sad truth is someday we're gonna die

But if both of us believe

That our spirits might not leave this earth

Maybe after death we'll stay behind

We can lurk around the park

Haunting people after dark

Where the teenagers sneak out to smoke their pot

You could take me by the hand

And in the shadows we will stand

Until they scream and run and drop the stash they've got

Then we'll roll up one or two

And blaze it up beneath the moon

Spiritual transcendence through post-mortem weed

We'll try to count all of the stars

But we'll lose track and then restart

But that's okay 'cuz we'll have an eternity

We could stay inside our home

And creek the floorboards as we groan

Then the family that moved in will get real scared

They'll hire psychics, priests, and nuns

And wonder what we've left undone

When really we're just having ghost sex and they're unaware

We could watch our grandkids grow

And watch them have kids of their own

Then watch those kids have kids and those kids' kids have kids, too

We'll smile from the other side

And be glad that once we were alive

And that so much started just with me and you

I know that what we're building now 

Can only get better somehow

And I don't ever want to have to let that go

So light a candle when I'm gone

If you go firsts I'll sing you songs

Until I join you there inside that great unknown

'Cuz you believe in ghosts and

I believe in ghosts and

You believe in ghosts and

I believe in ghosts, yeah

You believe in ghost and 

I believe in ghosts and...

sero

Oh, she loves everybody

She gets along with everyone

So why does she just ignore me?

Never started but acts like we're done

Sero, serotonin

Sero, serotonin

I tried to capture her

In the capsules on my counter

Play it off like I've had enough

Truth is I can't live without her

Sero, serotonin

Sero, serotonin

Oh, she's elusive

She's there and then she's gone

I think I'm gonna lose it

Why does she have to be all I want?

All I want is

Sero, serotonin

Sero, serotonin

I want to make her mine

She brings out the best parts of me

I know she'll come around in time

Oh, sero, sero, she's my missing piece, yeah

Sero, sero, be my missing piece, yeah

Oh, she's elusive

She's there and then she's gone

I think I'm gonna lose it

Why does she have to be all I want?

All I want is

Sero, serotonin

Sero, serotonin

magnets

One touch, your skin

My god, my sin

How you're lookin'

Come in, come in

Your tongue, my lips

Your hands, my hips

I'm done, I quit

Can't get enough of it

I'm just tryin' to keep my balance

Play it safe but I'm sick of being stagnant

Had a heart of steel, god domn it

But boys like you are made of magnets

Boys like you are made of magnets

Boys like you are made of magnets

Your eyes, that stare

Fingers in my hair

Is this just my invention

Or do you feel the tension?

Do you feel the tension?

I'm just tryin' to keep my balance

Play it safe but I'm sick of being stagnant

Had a heart of steel, god damn it

But boys like you are made of magnets

I'm jut tryin' to keep my balance

Play it safe but I'm sick of being stagnant

Had a heart of steel, god damn it

But boys like you are made of magnets

Boys like you are made of magnets

I'm a good girl I promise you

I'm a good girl, I am

I am careful with what I choose

But you've got me feelin' so bad

I'm a good girl I promise you

I'm a good girl, I am

I am careful with what I choose

But you've got me feelin' so bad

I'm just tryin' to keep my balance

(I don't want, don't wanna pull away)

Play it safe but I'm sick of being stagnant

(I don't want, don't wanna pull away)

Had a heart of steel, god damn it

(I don't want, don't wanna pull away)

But boys like you are made of magnets

(I don't want, don't wanna pull away)

I'm just tryin' to keep my balance

(I don't want, don't wanna pull away)

Play it safe but I'm sick of being stagnant

(I don't want, don't wanna pull away)

Had a heart of steel, god damn it

But boys like you are made of magnets

three times I've loved

I shared my bed for the first time

Twenty-two and it felt all right

Rough skin and those green eyes

He tried so hard to hide his secrets behind

I thought I'd love him forever

I thought he'd always be mine

I thought we'd never say never

But things just don't work out sometimes

His name reminded me of the clear blue

And if I'm honest his smile did, too

We'd tangle just like lovers do

Each time we'd rendezvous

I wanted to love him forever

I wanted him to always be mine

But he couldn't handle the pressure

So I walked away just fine

His laugh rolls low like thunder

It rings over, inside, and under

And I can't help but wonder

If we'll stop right here with each other

I want to love him forever

I want him to always be mine

Oh, we fit so right right together

Just perfectly aligned

Oh, please, won't you love me forever?

Oh, please, can't I always be yours?

I know it can't get any better

Pick me right up off the floor

We don't gotta want anymore

Anymore

I'm the last leaf on an autumn tree

I'm the last drag left in the cigarette between your teeth

I'm the last leg helping you stand

I'm the last bullet left in the gun that you've got in your hand

You need to let me go

All we had, what we made, all we built

It can't stand anymore

I know what I need

Shut your mouth, turn around, it's my turn

To find some peace

You're the riptide pulling me down

You're the one throwing dirt over me in this hole in the ground

You're the final shove

That I felt when I fell to my knees and you broke all my love

You need to let me go

All we had, what we made, all we built

It can't stand anymore

I know what I need

Shut your mouth, turn around, it's my turn

To find some peace

I'm pulling myself up

I'm pulling myself up

I don't need a crutch

I've had enough

I'm pulling myself up

broke my love
