Theme[]

"It's about not fitting in and not wanting to fit in, and that is truly honest, because I have never felt like I fit in the conventional sense of the word. And that's not an original feeling: a lot of people feel like that. And I guess that I just want to express that that's okay, and if you do feel like that, you're not alone, because there's at least one other person that feels like that, if not everybody at some point in their life. And GRRRLS has that not fitting in, not wanting to fit in element, but it also has the component of the 'Got to get to my throne.' And that 'Got to get to my throne' is what makes it different and what drives it apart, and to me, that's super important because you need to take ownership of who you are, and to be really confident, you've got to believe in your dreams and your ability to pursue them."

Lyrics[]

[Verse 1]
Fake faces hiding everywhere
Made up, make-up, made up stares
To hide their stolen air
Don't look too close, don't you dare
Stupid seems to be in the air, in the air, everywhere
Blameless, I'll shatter through the glare
Make it, take it, they won't share

[Pre-Chorus]
I can't fake it, I'll just make it on my own
I can't blame them, I'll just maim them on my throne
I can't fake it, I'll just make it on my own
I can't blame them, I've just got to get to my throne

[Chorus]
I am the latest colors, I sing the newest songs
I read all the lyrics so I can sing along
I am the latest colors, I stand above my throne
Waiting for an invite to never come along
I am the latest colors, I sing the newest songs
I read all the lyrics so I can sing along
I am the latest colors, I hate the newest songs
I can't stand the lyrics, I'd never sing along

[Post-Chorus]
I'll never sing along
La-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la
I'll never sing along
La-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la
I'll never sing along

[Verse 2]
Trade places, staggered truth or dare
Only ask it if you care
Trace back to all the millionaires
Snake oil traders, no one shares
Soulless and stealing what they dare
Hold your deck to your chest
Faceless, nobody is your friend
Make it, take it, they won't share

[Pre-Chorus]
I can't fake it, I'll just make it on my own
I can't blame them, I'll just maim them on my throne
I can't fake it, I'll just make it on my own
I can't blame them, I've just got to get to my throne

[Chorus]
I am the latest colors, I sing the newest songs
I read all the lyrics so I can sing along
I am the latest colors, I hate the newest songs
I can't stand the lyrics, I'd never sing along

[Post-Chorus]
I'll never sing along
La-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la
I'll never sing along
La-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la
I'll never sing along

[Bridge]
I'll never sing along, I'll never sing along
La-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la, on my own
La-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la, on my throne
La-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la, on my own
La-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la, get to my throne

[Chorus]
I am the latest colors, I sing the newest songs
I read all the lyrics so I can sing along
I am the latest colors, I stand above my throne
Waiting for an invite to never come along
I am the latest colors, I sing the newest songs
I read all the lyrics so I can sing along
I am the latest colors, I hate the newest songs
I can't stand the lyrics, I'd never sing along

[Outro]
I'll never sing along
I can't fake it, I'll just make it on my own
I'll never sing along
I can't blame them, I'll just maim them on my throne
I'll never sing along
I can't fake it, I'll just make it on my own
I'll never sing along
I can't blame them, I've just got to get to my throne

Lyrics[]

[Eminem - Lose Yourself]
His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy
He's nervous, but on the surface he looks calm and ready

[AViVA - GRRRLS]
'Cause there's fake faces hiding everywhere
Made up, make-up, made up stares
To hide their stolen air
Don’t look too close, don’t you dare

[​Twenty One Pilots - Heathens]
'Cause, all  my friends are  heathens, take it slow
Wait for them to ask you who you know
Please don't make any sudden moves

[Melanie Martinez - Carousel]
When you're round and round like a horse on a carousel
We go, will I catch up to love? I can never tell
Bye

[AViVA - GRRRLS]
La-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la

[Twenty One Pilots - Heathens]
We don't deal with outsiders very well
They say newcomers have a certain smell
You have trust issues, not to mention
They say they can smell your intentions

[AViVA - GRRRLS]
I am the latest colors, I sing the newest songs
I read all the lyrics, so I can sing along
I am the latest colors, I hate the newest songs
I can’t stand the lyrics, I’d never sing along
La-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la

[Melanie Martinez - Carousel]
Come, come one, come all
You must be this tall
To ride this ride, at the carnival
Come, come take my hand
Run through playland
So high, too high

[AViVA - GRRRLS]
Gotta get to my throne

I can’t fake it, I’ll just make it on my own (on my own)

[Melanie Martinez - Carousel]
Round and round like a horse on a carousel, we ride

[AViVA - GRRRLS]
I can’t blame them, I’ll just maim them on my throne (on my throne)

[Melanie Martinez - Carousel]
Will I catch up to love? I can never tell
But I

[AViVA - GRRRLS]
I can’t fake it, I’ll just make it on my own (on my own)

[Melanie Martinez - Carousel]
Round and round like a horse on a carousel

[AViVA - GRRRLS]
I can’t blame them, I’ll just maim them on my throne (on my throne)

[Twenty One Pilots - Heathens]
I don't deal with outsiders very well

[AViVA - GRRRLS]
Got to get to my throne
