You Should See Me in a Crown Lyrics

Play "You Should See Me in a Crown"
on Amazon Music

Bite my tongue, bide my time
Wearing a warning sign
Wait 'til the world is mine
Visions I vandalize
Cold in my kingdom size
Fell for these ocean eyes

You should see me in a crown
I'm gonna run this nothing town
Watch me make 'em...

    I think that this song is from the perspective of Professor Moriarty from the TV show Sherlock. In the show, Moriarty even says, “You should see me in a crown”. This makes sense because he always wants to be in control of Sherlock and have all the power.

    Baah baah im a powabitch queen. Worsheep meeh cuz im thelemalobotomized zzzznore. Yh she obviously an talented person who learned how the world works, and would like the rest of the enlightened ones to get it,( hey , im here, and i know how to play the game)while at the same time camouflage it a little so the sheep who worship her can put any context they feel fit into it.

    Like so many before and after her

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    Billy's not a princess or a queen. She's a king. (She said it on the description on Spotify). This means that rather than being judged by what she looks like or by her gender, Billy can be who she is and wants to be and rule the world how she wants. It's like telling people who judge her and make opinions of her by her looks to watch her rule the world as a king rather than a queen or princess (like people would expect) before they make opinions of her and judge her.

    She thinks people uses her for her looks but she wants to be known for what she can do not just her appearance. So she seeks revenge making them bow down to worship her. Since they took advantage of her and her looks, she will do the same

    In my interpretation...

    She says "You should see me in a crown,Your silence is my favorite sound, I'm going to run this nothing town, watch me make em' bow one by one by one..."

    This shows she has power, she want's to be powerful over anyone and everyone. She wants to have people that look up to her almost worship her.

    She goes on to say "Count my cards watch them fall, blood on a marble wall, I like the way they all scream, tell me which one is worse, living or dying first, sleeping inside a hearse, I don't dream."

    She will "kill" to be on top, she likes the power so much it gives her satisfaction to see others downfall relating to "I like the way they all scream".

    She goes on to say which is worse living or dying first, this shows what's the point of living if you are not on top, basically saying if you aren't at your highest power you are dead. Her not dreaming tells us that she has a direct sense of getting what she's doing done, it's not like a dream of hers to do it. She's literally going to do what she wants right here and now.

    She says "come over baby, I think you're pretty, I'm ok, I'm not your baby, If you think I'm pretty you should see me in a crown..."

    Because she is compared to a Queen she will not let someone call her something or tell her what to do, but instead she wants them to know that she is powerful by "seeing her in a crown and what she can do"

    This song is representing, showing off how much better you are now than before. Probably from a toxic relationship--
    "You should see me in a crown, i'm gonna run this nothing town.. watch me make em' boy one by one boy one--" is about how shes been better from her old relationship and shows off how hes not changed

    To me, this seems to be about her wanting to show she can be powerful. She says someone thinks she's pretty, so she tells them they should see her ruling the world. She doesn't want to be reduced to just her appearance. She wants to be known for what she can do.
