From the recording Mermaid (Radio Edit)

Mermaid is the lead single from the upcoming album, Reset to Factory Specs. It's about finding your people, no matter what limitations and expectations have tried to keep you tied where you don't belong. Mermaid celebrates identity, the long road to figuring yourself out, and the underwater party where one day you're gonna feel right at home.

Lyrics

If I make them cry for the mermaid
It's not because they think they'll get laid
If I make them cry for the mermaid
It's not because they think they got played

Heaven forbid they see me on the stage
As more than a girl from the center page
I'm more than the sum of my lady parts
That's not how we get to the top of the charts

If I make them cry for the mermaid
It's not because they think they'll get laid
If I make them cry for the mermaid
It's not because they think they got played

You better run quick cuz I'm burning this bridge
It's the first thing I did when I opened the fridge
The first thing I did was to take a deep breath
Then I let out the fire that burned in my chest

If I make them cry for the mermaid
It's not because they think they'll get laid
If I make them cry for the mermaid
It's not because they think they got played

The sea is full of princes who can't swim
Tell me what's the point in learning to walk for them?
Oh the sea is full of princes who can't swim
So tell me WT(F)'s the point learning to walk for them?

Kick with your feet and I'm sure you'll be fine
I gotta go cuz I'm bringing the wine
I gotta go cuz they're waiting on me
Down where the party is under the sea

If I make them cry for the mermaid
It's not because they think they'll get laid
If I make them cry for the mermaid
It's not because they think they got played

If I make them cry for the mermaid
I make them cry
