Cassandra
Taylor Swift Lyrics


I was in my new house placing daydreams
Patching up the crack along the wall
I pass it and lose track of what I'm saying
'Cause that's where I was when I got the call

When the first stone's thrown, there's screaming
In the streets, there's a raging riot
When it's "Burn the bitch," they're shrieking
When the truth comes out, it's quiet
So, they killed Cassandra first 'cause she feared the worst
And tried to tell the town
So, they filled my cell with snakes, I regret to say
Do you believe me now?

I was in my tower weaving nightmares
Twisting all my smiles into snarls
They say, "What doesn't kill you makes you aware"
What happens if it becomes who you are?

So, they killed Cassandra first 'cause she feared the worst
And tried to tell the town
So, they set my life in flames, I regret to say
Do you believe me now?

They knew, they knew, they knew the whole time
That I was onto something
The family, the pure greed, the Christian chorus line
They all said nothing
Blood's thick but nothing like a payroll
Bet they never spared a prayer for my soul
You can mark my words that I said it first
In a morning warning, no one heard

I patched up the crack along the wall
I pass it and lose track of what I'm saying
'Cause that's where I was when I lost it all

So, they killed Cassandra first 'cause she feared the worst
And tried to tell the town
So, they filled my cell with snakes, I regret to say
Do you believe me now?

Ahh-ahh
I was onto something
Ahh-ahh
They all said nothing

Blood's thick but nothing like a payroll
Bet they never spared a prayer for my soul
You can mark my words that I said it first
In a morning warning, no one heard
No one heard
Not a single word was heard

When the first stone's thrown, there's screaming
In the streets, there's a raging riot
When it's "Burn the bitch," they're shrieking
When the truth comes out, it's quiet
It's so quiet

To everyone who's studying with this song, here's a little checklist:

• A bottle of water. Your brain works better if it has enough water and drinking helps you to concentrate 💦

• Your charger. You sometimes don't even notice that your device's battery is going down, so better have it plugged in all the time ⚡

• Your headphones. You will be able to focus more
with headphones because it blocks background noises. Also, if it's a late night study session, you won't wake up anyone 🎧

• Tea, coffee, or hot chocolate. Coffee keeps you awake, green or black tea can make you feel more awake as well ☕

• Your study/work stuff: your laptop/tablet/ phone,
a few pens, paper or whatever you need 📚

Remember to take breaks whenever you need along with moving your body around a bit so you're not always sitting! Have a beautiful day/night ✨

yall cassandra from greek mythology was a priestess with the gift of prophecy but also cursed to never be believed, every time she warned of danger she was dismissed and the people suffered for it. just in case you were wondering if the name was a reference to anything

@slinky7696

Thank you so much

@DianaGR-lt9pk

I didn't see this and i already commented the same thing. I am glad we got it correctly.

@Ablank2011

Thank you for the education. That totally explains it. ❤

@cassandrazamora6164

Yup I feel this in my current life.

@tahafeemahmed

I believe it is a reference to the years between Reputation and 1989 when Kanye West and Kim Kardashian tainted her image to the media. The #taylorswiftisoverparty , the snake emoji trend, all the hate and shaming thrown towards her. Yet after the truth was out, those people didn't even get half the hate she got. Suddenly it was all quiet.

"When the Truth Comes Out Its Quiet"
So so very true. Masterful reference.

@safaagennish8644

I think she is referencing the kardashian/west feud when truth came out no one cared like they did then

@esmaboztas1747

👏🏼👏🏼

@zacuzzi

rly shows the contrast of how chaotic when you are perceived as guilty til proven innocent but after the prevailing, people brush it off and disregard the pain inflicted on the accused.
