“i think there’s something about being a young woman that feels very murderous. that’s what i was trying to get with a song like ‘dream girl evil.’ it can be dangerous for people to think you’re incredibly nice. when you get, ‘you’re an angel,’ that seems like such a high place to fall from. when i see messy or violent or terribly behaved women, especially young women, there’s a liberation. to not have to try and survive by being good.”
Did I disappoint you? Did mommy make you sad? Do I at least remind you of every girl that made you mad? Make me perfect, make me your fantasy. You know I deserve it. Well, take it out on me. Am I your dream girl? You think of me in bed, but you could never hold me. You liked me better in your head. Make me evil, then I'm an angel instead. At least you'll sanctify me when I'm dead.

me: i am feeling okay about men and the concept of men. maybe i can forgive the men in my life who have wronged me
dream girl evil: am i your dream girl? / you think of me in bed / but you could never hold me / and like me better in your head. / make me evil / then i'm an angel instead / at least you'll sanctify me when i'm dead.
dream girl evil: do i just remind you / of every girl that made you mad?
dream girl evil: watch me shimmer / a projection of your mother
