We wouldn't be seen dead here in the day
I guess you're lucky that its dark now
And if I like it then we'll stay
Impress the empress, take a shot now

We got the glow in our mouths
White teeth teens are out
White teeth teens are up for it

I know you love it when the hair pins start to drop
I like your reckoning, but we got our methods
and there's nothing here to stop
To stop this

If you want we'll help tonight to split his schemes
Give the bruises out like gifts
You'll get the picture of your dreams
I won't be smiling bout the notes
From my admirers fill my dashboard just the same

We got the glow in our mouths
White teeth teens are out
White teeth teens are up for it

I know you love it when the hair pins start to drop
I like your reckoning, but we got our methods
and there's nothing here to stop
To stop this
They're up for it
I know you love it when the hair pins start to drop
I like your reckoning, but we got our methods
and there's nothing here to stop
To stop this

(And everything works out so good
I wear the robe like no one could)

I'll let you in on something big
I am not a white teeth teen
I tried to join but never did
The way they are, they way they seems something else, it's in the blood
Their molars blinking like the lights, in the underpass where we all sit
And do nothing and love it

And everything works out so good
I wear the robe like no one could
And everything works out so good
I wear the robe like no one could

We got the glow in our mouths...
White teeth teens are out...
We got the glow in our mouths...
White teeth teens are out

    I think she wants to show that she is not perfect but tried. And you can't take the fault for being un perfect because of your blood. You are who you are and you can't change. You don't need to be perfect and popular like everyone else in the world. It matters what you mean on the inside not the out and like her you can be perfect in your ways. But you have to fight for what you believe and fight against the perfects and just don't let them take over you. You have to "wear your robe" and show them they shouldn't make you feel that way.
