Sometimes life is as bad as it seems You spend your last five on lotto 'cause it's a license to dream Lean your head against the window 'til you make a mist See a rich lady on her way to her therapist While you're saving for your psychic, it's as close as you'll get To someone who will listen while you pay for it Homeless kids getting warm in the laundromat Are having a dance party around a baseball cap In my dreams when I fall there's a trampoline It bounces me back over the world so green Never want to ride around a limousine I only want to get my own Speed Queen Sometimes I fear that there is no escape Brother's working part-time at the local vape Mother's car is held together with duct tape But don't you worry none, we are doing great 'Cause the president says we're always on his mind We're a glimmer in his eye As his jet plane cuts a white scar 'cross the sky Video lotto blinking pink and black Woman on TV tied to a railroad track Horse jumping through a velour fence behind the bar Just like me, I don't think that he'll get that far And Tony's necklace glimmers like a knock-out punch He asks me if I'm hungry and he serves me lunch I know that he wants something in exchange Nothing at this point seems out of range And in my dreams when I fall there's a trampoline It bounces me back over the world so green Never want to ride around a limousine I only want to get my own Speed Queen Well the truth will hurt for awhile but a lie will hurt for miles You don't have to give me a break or any forced smiles Truth is I don't blame you, I see what you see If I was betting on the future I would bet against me I put all my coins in the wrong machine But one day I will get my own Speed Queen
