lyrics

[But when his heart was lifted up and his spirit was hardened so that he ruled proudly, his glory was taken from him, and he was brought down from his throne. He was driven away from humanity, and his mind was made like an animal's. His body was soaked with the dew of heaven until he knew that the Most High rules over the human kingdom, and they put it in the hands of whomever they wish.]

Will you like me when you
Learn I'm a glitchpop god(dess)?
No one knows that about me;
This is no time to be modest.
Can't you read cuneiform?
The writing's on the wall.
And once I've shattered every norm,
Your empire's gonna fall.

And I know it's not the sort of thing
That tends to win a Grammy,
But it's in my blood, and I've more of that
Than Hotline Miami!

Give up your crowns and lay them on my head.
You're afraid to die? For years I've already been dead.
I can hear it if I listen close:
Your swan song's my magnum opus as sung by my ghost.
