Lady Gaga Sings About The Fatal Perils Of Fame In New Song "Princess Die"

At Lady Gaga's recent concert in Melbourne, Australia earlier this week, the provocateuse performed a new song called "Princess Die" for the first time. She introduced the song thusly: "It's about some of the most deep and personal thoughts I've ever had and it's called 'Princess Die. D-I-E. D...I...E." With a never-wavering love for the dramatic, Gaga's lyrics were shocking to some. They tell the imagined story of her suicide and never-ending quest for fame, approval, and applause. Here are the full song lyrics:

Lady Gaga - Princess Die Lyrics


Leave the coffin open when I go
And leave my pearls and lipstick on so everybody knows
Pretty'll be the photograph I leave
Laying down on famous knives so everybody sees


Bleach out all the dark, I'll swallow
Each peroxide shot, someone I know can save me from myself
Maybe I'll just clean the shit off of these fancy shoes
I'll be a Princess Die and die with you


I wish that I was strong
I wish that I was wrong
I wish that I could cope, but I took pills and left a note


I'm hungry from an anorexic heart
I've been trying to tell you how I feel but was never very smart
I'm wrapped in silks made for Egyptian queens
I'll do it in the swimming pool so everybody sees


Bleach out all the dark
I'll swallow each peroxide shot, volumes I know
Will love and save me from myself
Maybe I'll just clean the shit off of these fancy shoes
I'll be a Princess Die and die with you


Princess Die, I want to see her cry
Princess Die, Princess Die
We want to watch her cry
Princess Die


Wish that I was strong
Wish that I was wrong
Wish that I could cope, but I took pills and left a note


And wish that I would go
In my rich boyfriend's limo, oh oh
Right after he proposed
With a 16-carat stone wrapped in rose gold
With the papparazzi all swarming 'round
In my Louis Vuitton white button-down
Oh, it's not that deep
So bob head your head for another dead blonde
Whose real prince is in heaven
She just wants to sleep


The final act of life will be in my own hands to do
I'll be a Princess Die and die with you, applaud approve
