Both eyes drinking cool water
Not the first daughter
So I can't see why you're wrestling with words at last
A tradition you've long outclassed

Come true for the new martyrs
With your hair parted like the Red Sea
You're addressing the world from your bed
All alone in the crowd like you said

Come true, it's only divine right
Come true, it's only divine right
(Ah, ah, ah)
(Ah, ah, ah)

Here's Leda in her white glory
All her back-story has been wiped clean
Just another apocryphal mess
Never promised 'em anything less

So come true, these are safe waters
For the first daughter
So I can't see why you're pushing the pull that you've had
While the rest of the girls go bad

Come true, it's only divine right
Come true, it's only divine right
(Ah, ah, ah)
(Ah, ah, ah)

Slip back through the plot for the new shock
Seeing us then when we were the real people
We were the real people
Slip back through the plot for the new shock
Seeing us then when we were the real people
We were the real people

Face down in the old money
Left the crowd wondering what your
Next move's gonna be in the moments ahead
While the rest of the girls go bad

Come true, it's only divine right
Come true, it's only divine right
(Ah, ah, ah)
(Ah, ah, ah)

Slip back through the plot for the new shock
Seeing us then when we were the real people
We were the real people
Slip back through the plot for the new shock
Seeing us then when we were the real people
We were the real people
