Have them forge you a pedigree and then you'll be
Left to run the races lame

from Fiona Apple – Periphery Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Fiona rejects the idea that you must be given a stamp of approval by the ‘in’ crowd. See her famous MTV speech, “This world is bullshit… go with yourself.” To her, authenticity is the greatest strength.
