Teen Idle

Album: Electra Heart (2012)
  • I wanna be a bottle blonde
    I don't know why but I feel conned
    I wanna be an idle teen
    I wish I hadn't been so clean

    I wanna stay inside all day
    I want the world to go away
    I want blood, guts, and chocolate cake
    I wanna be a real fake

    Yeah, I wish I'd been, I wish I'd been, a teen, teen idle
    Wish I'd been a prom queen, fighting for the title
    Instead of being sixteen and burning up a bible
    Feeling super, super, super suicidal

    The wasted years, the wasted youth
    The pretty lies, the ugly truth
    And the day has come where I have died
    Only to find, I've come alive

    I wanna be a virgin pure
    A twenty-first century whore
    I want back my virginity
    So I can feel infinity

    I wanna drink until I ache
    I wanna make a big mistake
    I want blood, guts, and angel cake
    I'm gonna puke it anyway

    Yeah, I wish I'd been, I wish I'd been, a teen, teen idle
    Wish I'd been a prom queen, fighting for the title
    Instead of being sixteen and burning up a bible
    Feeling super, super, super suicidal

    The wasted years, the wasted youth
    The pretty lies, the ugly truth
    And the day has come where I have died
    Only to find, I've come alive

    Come alive, I've come alive
    Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
    Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh

    I wish I wasn't such a narcissist
    I wish I didn't really kiss
    The mirror when I'm on my own
    Oh God, I'm gonna die alone

    Adolescence didn't make sense
    A little loss of innocence
    The ugliness of being a fool
    Ain't youth meant to be beautiful?

    Yeah, I wish I'd been, I wish I'd been, a teen, teen idle
    Wish I'd been a prom queen, fighting for the title
    Instead of being sixteen and burning up a bible
    Feeling super, super, super suicidal

    The wasted years, the wasted youth
    The pretty lies, the ugly truth
    And the day has come where I have died
    Only to find, I've come alive

    Only to find, I've come alive
    Only to find, I've come alive

    All our lives
    (Feeling super, super, super)
    (Feeling super, super, super)
    (Feeling super, super, super)
    All our lives Writer/s: MARINA LAMBRINI DIAMANDIS
