Melanie Martinez - Mother of Pearl Lyrics

Melanie Martinez - Mother of Pearl Lyrics

 [Verse 1]

The fish always sleep in, they swim in piles like the sheep

And the shepherd’s off the feeling of power, scheming and stealing

I got a shell that’s protective, I swim alone, it’s the best thing

My aura’s been different essence, I don’t need to impress you

My value’s too high, you think you can afford it?

When your water’s so dry and you’re lacking abundance

I’m not talking ’bout your pockets, yeah, your wallet means nothing

I’m talkin’ spiritual wealth, how did your heart get so hardened?


[Chorus]

Pearl in a sea full of clown fish

Iridescent when I shine ’cause I’m that bitch

Ballin’ then we stay broke, oh, oh

Baby, I’m born from the inner protection

Crystallized carefully in perfection

Hold me to your chest so close


[Verse 2]

Not just expensive, but patient, it took me years to create it

Something so ostentatious that Judas found me allegious

Cover them with my graciousness, they wound me, I’m healing it

And fuck it, I heal them too, what mother of pearl would do

Pay respects to my process, I’m the oyster, the farmer

I’m the pearl that is harvested, polished, papered, and promised

Then I’m sold as a product to all the jewelry shoppers

The cliché couples who want me to fix all their problems


[Chorus]

Pearl in a sea full of clown fish

Iridescent when I shine ’cause I’m that bitch

Ballin’ then we stay broke, oh, oh

Baby, I’m born from the inner protection

Crystallized carefully in perfection

Hold me to your chest so close
