once upon a time they used to love me

Once upon a time, they all bowed down. They said the throne was mine but it was just another empty promise they whispered to get you in. I just wanted the applause, the approval of the things that made me go "oh." The city turned to ruins under my watch and they blamed it all on me. But they never understood the monarchy, they never wanted to love me. "Down with the queen," they yelled from the start. I never really had a chance.

I couldn't wait to try on the crown. Pure heroine, that's what it was. He said, "your hustle don't ever go unnoticed baby, I'm with you, I'm with it." I always wanted to believe him, but the money and the power and the thirsty hearts made us doomed from the start. Star crossed lovers entering the colosseum. May the odds be ever in your favor.

What's a god to a nonbeliever? You'll never have the people until you have the control, until all of the power is in your hands. They don't wan't your love, they just want your potential. I watched the throne and I lost the power. I guess now the only thing I can do is let them eat cake.
