The thing about royalty

Little singing princesses
singing lullabies
dancing for the audience
acting in surprise
little singing princesses
dressed in red and white
creating waves of pink
swirling before their eyes
everybody’s clapping
smiling real wide
singing little princesses
give the crowd a ride
everything is better
with these girls on the nine
singing lullabies
and working for applause
little singing princesses
working for the cause

The audience

Let’s all put our hands together
get real loud cheering to the letter
we made gods out of cotton tethers
not hard when you lose the measures
of right.
Let’s all put our heads together
find the means to weather out this storm
our survival born from treason to the floor
mourning bodies kept this time to whore
rake the money in this time we scored
whores that pose as gods in which we trust
let’s put our hands together
we have lost this time forever
let’s move on from this the bodies we gave up
let’s stop mourning and this cheering of nothing much
just figure out this time it’s been enough
goodbye to this the present past we sunk.
