lyrics

[Zilla Rocca]
They brought me on the case after day 17
Former Beauty Queen vanished at 33
The buttons had no leads or motives
I had to chase rats with more dosage
This case was explosive, a skirt on the lam with no notions
Just a ransom note sent with twelve roses
The flowers reminded me of a pimp named Marco
Who strung out angels on charm and strong nectar
I knew him from before as a failed actor
Now he chased kittens of the queen's stature
Caught him at Bob's Place, yanked him by the throat
Broke his thumbs before he even sang a note
"What do you know about this girl?", pulled out the picture
He whistled like a wolf, I punched his kisser
He said, "She probably pulled a dutch act, or maybe she's a tweeker
Or she kidnapped herself, they are attention seekers
Those pretty ones"

[Chorus-Jawnzap7 & Miss Amy]
She's my dead queen, a pawn's wet dream
The king's red beam
Aiming at your neck now
The bishop, knight, rook all look
Shook to the core
Her body laying on the floor, wow
She's my dead queen, a pawn's wet dream
The king's red beam
Aiming at your neck now
The bishop, knight, rook all look
Shook to the core
Her body laying on the floor, wow

[Zilla Rocca]
I grabbed the northside trolley, to see Johnny
Her former manager, he seemed sorry, probably
Discovered the queen when she was 16
A failed romance between them, she left him at 23
The number 1 suspect but he was spotless
It doesn't mean he wasn't the accomplice
He noted that she had a drug problem since August
She lost sponsors, then went to rehab and got a sponsor
All of this well known, so why was she gone now
The tip line was overflowing and they lost count
The ransom note seemed legit and Johnny went down
To the drop point, but nobody showed up
The FBI called it a hoax and moved south
Johnny pleaded, he knew she was alive somehow
I said, "when's the last time you went to her house?"
He said, "It's a been awhile, let's head there now"

[Chorus--Jawnzap7 & Miss Amy]
She's my dead queen, a pawn's wet dream
The king's red beam
Aiming at your neck now
The bishop, knight, rook all look
Shook to the core
Her body laying on the floor, wow
She's my dead queen, a pawn's wet dream
The king's red beam
Aiming at your neck now
The bishop, knight, rook all look
Shook to the core
Her body laying on the floor, wow

[Bridge--Jawnzap7 & Miss Amy]
She sleeps in the earth cause the rent is dirt cheap and
Responsibly green, know what I mean?
She lies in a state of perpetual grace and
Waiting for praise, nothing to say
She sleeps in the earth cause the rent is dirt cheap and
Responsibly green, know what I mean?
She lies in a state of perpetual grace and
Waiting for praise, nothing to say

[Zilla Rocca]
Knocked on the door, Johnny would go in
No signs of foul play, though gas fumes were potent
Duct taped her mouth, handcuffed her own skin
Kidnapped herself (her body laying on the floor now)
Roses on the counter, past issues of Oprah
Hoped to rebrand herself on talkshows an'
A plot so wise, but she was thwarted by
Carbon monoxide (her body laying on the floor now)

[Chorus--Jawnzap7 & Miss Amy]
She's my dead queen, a pawn's wet dream
The king's red beam
Aiming at your neck now
The bishop, knight, rook all look
Shook to the core
Her body laying on the floor, wow
She's my dead queen, a pawn's wet dream
The king's red beam
Aiming at your neck now
The bishop, knight, rook all look
Shook to the core
Her body laying on the floor, wow
