Rant (Hot in Here)

From her new album Ma’at Mama (Ma'at' means truth, an ancient Egyptian kemetic principle holding the world in balance and order)

CASTLE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE UNIVERSE WHERE EVERYTHING’S FOR SALE

HEY, WHERE CAN I BUY ONE OF THOSE LITTLE BLUE PILLS
TO CURE ME OF MY ILLS
CAUSED BY THE Illuminati’S MASTER PLAN
HERE! HERE! PUT THIS GUN IN YOUR HAND
GO SHOOT SOME SHIT UP

CASTLE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE UNIVERSE WHERE EVERYTHING’S FOR SALE
SELL YOUR SOUL AND BUY A FANTASY
LOSE YOUR MIND AND DRIFT INTO A DREAM
AND HOPEFULLY IT SOOTHES THE PAIN THAT BOUGHT
YOU THERE
·
CASTLE AT THE BOTTOM OF UNIVERSE WHERE ANGELS GO TO DIE
FALL TO EARTH FROM MOUNTAINS IN THE SKY
TRADE THEIR WINGS FOR THINGS TO GET THEM HIGH
IMMORTALITY FOR MISERY
THEY YEARN TO TASTE THE POISON OF HUMANITY
AND LIVE THE NIGHTMARE
·
IT WASN’T MY MISTAKE
I SHOULDN’T HAVE TO PAY
THE CONSEQUENCE IS SO UNFAIR
