The Flow: …And By Queen by Dave End

Dave End is a gender-bending queer performer from West Philly.  His act is really fun and involves a lot of sequins 🙂  His lyrics are also great, as you can see below.  We wanted to use the lyrics from Phat Camp, which are also great, but there was no fun video to go along with it.

…And By Queen

And by “Queen” you thought they all meant royalty

like they knew your potential

like your high school was a self help book

written on bathroom stalls in pencils

and you knew as long as they kept talking shit you could succeed

and by “Fairy” you thought they knew about your wings

Isn’t that one of them way down there?

With the beautiful children

and the thinning hair

and isn’t that you way up here

pretending like it got you nowhere

So you packed up your f-a and their g-g-o-t

and you moved it to the country

and you wonder why you compare yourself to the hudson river

then you remember, they put their waste in you

and though your currents tried to fight it

by looking at all the pieces of glass that used to be shiny

that your shores cannot hide

Isn’t that one of them way down there?

With the beautiful children

and the thinning hair

and isn’t that you way up here

pretending like you still don’t care

in order to fly, you’ve gotta have something to rise above

and is it ok that you have to have hate to have self love

and yes that is one of them down there

that is one of them way down there

and you still don’t care

and it got you nowhere
