THE SIGNS AS ELECTRA HEART LYRICS

Taurus:  Yeah, I wish I’d been a, 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 suicidal. - “Teen Idle”

Capricorn: And now I see, I see it for the first time, there is no crime in being kind. Not everyone is out to screw you over. Maybe, oh just maybe they just wanna get to know you. - “Fear and Loathing”

Aquarius: All my life I’ve felt it deep inside of me. All this time was fighting for what I believe. All my life I’ve tried to hide what history has given me. - “Sex Yeah”

Pisces:  All I really want is to be wonderful. People in this town they, they can be so cruel. I live my life inside a dream, only waking when I sleep. If I could sell my sorry soul, I would have it all. - “The State of Dreaming”

What she says: I’m fine.

What she means: Electra Heart was so beautifully written as well as illustrated and such a good concept and the fact that people don’t appreciate its beauty enough is absolutely gut wrenching like marina lambrini diamandis spent such a large portion of her life writing, recording, and creating a visual for this era and the fact that people don’t recognize the genius behind it hurts ME. also, she was able to express all the sadness she was feeling by creating a whole other person so that people could see what she was going through. she even brought up good points through it…for example: the demand and absolute need for feminism. not only that, she was able to express some common female archetypes (the housewife, the beauty queen, the “homewrecker”, and the idle teen). FINALLY, she pulled off the 50’s/60’s pinup look wHILE REPRESENTING EACH ARCHETYPE FLAWLESSLY but ya im fine tho

A little shout out to the beauty of these lyrics!

“I am not a Robot” by Marina and the Diamonds

You’ve been acting awful tough lately
Smoking a lot of cigarettes lately
But inside, you’re just a little baby
It’s okay to say you’ve got a weak spot
You don’t always have to be on top
Better to be hated
Than loved loved loved for what your not

You’re vulnerable, you’re vulnerable
You are not a robot
You’re lovable, so lovable
But you’re just troubled

Guess what I’m not a robot, a robot
Guess what I’m not a robot, a robot

You’ve been hanging with the unloved kids
Who you never really liked and you never trusted
But you are so magnetic, you pick up all the pins
Never committing to anything
You don’t pick up the phone when it ring, ring, rings
Don’t be so pathetic, just open up and sing

I’m vulnerable, I’m vulnerable
I am not a robot
You’re lovable, so lovable
But you’re just troubled

Guess what I’m not a robot, a robot
Guess what I’m not a robot, a robot

Can you teach me how to feel real
Can you turn my power on
Well, let the drum beat drop

Guess what I’m not a robot
Guess what I’m not a robot

Guess what I’m not a robot, a robot
Guess what I’m not a robot, a robot
Guess what I’m not a robot, a robot
Guess what I’m not a robot, a robot
