Kings & Queens
On Display

On the day that we were born they stamped our faces with a barcode

With the most permanent ink, in bold across our foreheads

Scanned and sold to the prison of our everyday

All we want is to scratch the mental scar away

We grow up to disappoint the sure predictions of the ones who

Nailed the fences round our necks but only to protect us

Once they know we've ignored their false identities

They'll freak out, diagnose us with a head disease

But we can't be blamed, we can't be blamed

I can't be, you can't be, we can't be blamed

King or queen, you're royalty

Heart or spade, it's overplayed

They'll brand us, scar us, leave us

When they fail to understand us but

King or queen, your love is free

King or queen, your love is free

They don't know the kind of pain that we endure to keep them at ease

Feel so false our lives are morphing into movies

With no end, the kind to keep its viewers taunted

We act well, despite the circumstances

'Could you please not be yourself' is their prescription, more like poison

Frantically outlining that we're wrong, alone, unwanted

Just a faze, the only rational conclusion

We can change, an impractical solution

Cause we can't be blamed (we can't be blamed)

We can't be blamed (we can't be blamed)

I can't be, you can't be, we can't be blamed

King or queen, you're royalty

Heart or spade, it's overplayed

They'll brand us, scar us, leave us

When they fail to understand us but

King or queen, your love is free

We deserve to have a throne

Praise to each their own

We deserve to wear a crown

Tell me why do they have to bring us down?

King or queen, you're royalty

In reality, in reality

Heart or spade, it's overplayed

We're humanity, we're humanity

They'll brand us, scar us, leave us

When they fail to understand us but

King or queen, your love is free

King or queen, you're royalty

In reality, in reality

Heart or spade, it's overplayed

We're humanity, we're humanity

They'll brand us, scar us, leave us

When they fail to understand us but

King or queen, your love is free

King or queen, your love is free

King or queen, your love is free
