lyrics

When life gives you lashes
(Make your own throne, make your own throne, make your own throne)
As society crashes
(Make your own throne, make your own throne, make your own throne)
Cause you're a motherfucking prince, girl, and you deserve your own throne
Yeah you're a motherfucking prince, girl, so let the whole world know
Yeah let the whole world know

Yeah when life gives you lashes, make your own throne
And when life gives you lemon, roll up and smoke
And if you make a little money, keep that shit close
And when you're loving with your honey, be a royal host
Cause they ain't gonna give it to ya, hell no
So you maybe gotta sidestep, make your own
Get that DIY ethic, sticks and stones
Let's fuck with the structure, take back control

When life gives you lashes
(Make your own throne, make your own throne, make your own throne)
Don't let it make that a habit
(Make your own throne, make your own throne, make your own throne)
If you know you're the queen
(Make your own throne, make your own throne, make your own throne)
If anyone disagrees, the fuck do they know
Make your own throne, make your own throne

Yeah when life gives you nothing, take something back
And when the cops come knocking, take up your bats
When the bosses steal your labour, rob them point blank
And if the bosses won't surrender, rob the whole bank
Cause they don't give a fuck about us, not one
So we're gonna have to fuck it up to get shit done
Gonna have to get rough to take down the scum
Make our own thrones, claim our freedom

When life gives you lashes
(Make your own throne, make your own throne, make your own throne)
Give 'em back and get savage
(Make your own throne, make your own throne, make your own throne)
If you're a motherfucking princess
(Make your own throne, make your own throne, make your own throne)
Then give 'em your best and make them bow low
Make your own throne, make your own throne

We gotta prove girl, prove we're the queens of england
Take the estate, and turn it into a kingdom
if they won't share their riches, we dun fuckin need em
we all know that money is a made up system
So we find our worth in different things
In creativity, community, and blazing with friends
And if we need money, we do what we can
And if we can't do nothing, we take from the man

We take from the man
We take from the man
We take from the man
The man call it criminal, he don't understand
We take from the man
We take from the man
We take from the man
We take his supply to fulfil our demands

When life gives you lashes
(Make your own throne, make your own throne, make your own throne)
As society crashes
(Make your own throne, make your own throne, make your own throne)
We're gonna rise above them
(Make your own throne, make your own throne, make your own throne)
Take their gold and their diamonds, make them our own
(Make your own throne, make your own throne)
'Cause when life gives you lashes
(Make your own throne, make your own throne, make your own throne)
We're gonna give 'em back massive
(Make your own throne, make your own throne, make your own throne)
'Cause we're royalty
(Make your own throne, make your own throne, make your own throne)
And you traitors and thieves gonna be overthrown
Take your old throne, make it our throne
(Make it our throne, make it our throne, make it our throne)
Make it our throne
(Make it our throne, make it our throne, make it our throne)
Make it our throne
