Gossip Queen

Let’s go down and part the foamy sea like Moses
‘Cause I spent half my foolish life
Caught in the web of a Mayan dream
You’re just a little diamond hope devoted, stuck-up girl
Living in your perfect, sugar-coated, touched-up world
Perched upon your pedestal
Soulless pariah
Truth-killing queen

Your velvet rope parties
Make the front page news
Your bee-stung lip smile
Has got you so far, but
So confused

So welcome to your private desert island
Where all the pretty people know your name
You like the taste of this poison tree
You smile on your own version of reality
You’re what passes for beautiful,
Ain’t that a shame

No, I can’t find
Any reason
Deep behind
This passion treason
Can’t you see?
There’s no common ground
In this star spangled frown
But an old hand-me-down

So welcome to your private desert island
Where all the pretty people know your name
You like the taste of this poison tree
You smile on your own version of reality
You’re what passes for beautiful,
Ain’t that a shame
