"Queen Maybelline" lyrics

Queen Maybelline

Maybelline just turned fourteen
Didn't get no birthday cake
Case 9173
She's a custody of the state
She tells everybody she looks like her mama
Cause she's never seen her daddy's eyes
Just a throw away baby from the 1980s
Another unwanted child, yeah
Yeah

Maybelline wears a turquoise ring
That was found in her personal file
She assumes it was left as a clue
That she might some day find
An aunt living in New Mexico
Or an uncle out in LA
She knows they're out there somewhere
Cause she sees them every day

When she flies out of her mind
To a beautiful place with sunny skies
She's free when she dreams
She's Queen Maybelline

Maybelline's got a polaroid
Of all the different families
The Howser's, Gimmon's, Nicholson's
Another short term memory
She never winds up anywhere
But they don't ask her to leave
An invisible girl
In a cruel, cruel world
Still can't find some peace

When she flies out of her mind
To a beautiful place with sunny skies
She's free when she dreams
She's Queen Maybelline

She knows God don't make mistakes
She believes there'll come a day
When she'll finally find her place
Yeah ,yeah
Yeah, yeah

When she flies out of her mind
To a beautiful place with sunny skies
She's free when she dreams
She's Queen Maybelline

Free when she dreams
She's Queen Maybelline
Free when she dreams
She's Queen Maybelline

Hey yeah
Hey yeah
A little Maybelline
A little Maybelline, yeah
Hey yeah
