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
