Track Name: Narrative
Because I have lost so swiftly
Because I have lost so strong
Teardrops of blood on the sidewalk
I learned how to run before I could walk

Because I have lost so bravely
Stood tall even when war was declared
Strangely I caught myself praying
And my life was spared
Track Name: Manifesto
For it to happen
‘might have to forget what I know
Change my name
Raise my game
Lie ‘bout my age
Lie ‘bout my wage
Lie
Whatever you do
Just lie
Truth, they can’t take it

I could get on a plane
New town to land on
New dick to sit on
New place to call home

For it to happen
Somebody’s gotta get mad
For it to happen
Somebody’s gotta get mad
For it to happen
For it to happen
Somebody’s gotta get mad

Opportunities restored
No suitcase aboard
Just me and my KORG
Ready to depart
Off to a fresh start
Off of the radar

Disappear from the feed
Keep my hands shiny clean
Use time as an excuse
And let all my thoughts snooze

I could get on a plane
New town to land on
New dick to sit on
New place to call home

But what kind of man would that make me
What kind of man
What kind of man would that make me

For it to happen
For it to happen
For it to happen
For it to happen
Track Name: Top Floor
To fill uneventful days
To kill my deadly boredom
I spark it up, I blaze
Until I hit rock bottom

Alone in my elevated residency
With no friend or flame
I allow occasional company
That has to leave once I came

Ain’t it a selfish world
Money, sex, glory, power
Ain’t it a filthy world
Blindly following the herd

On the top floor
Of my building
Got my head up in the clouds
It makes my life much easier
On the top floor
Of my building
Got my head up in the clouds
Up in the clouds

Into turbulent alleys
They race to fill their duties
For whom for what
I’m above all that

The air is thick in our condos
On AC we rely
That far up you can’t open the windows
So nobody attempts to fly

Ain’t it a selfish world
Money, sex, glory, power
Ain’t it a filthy world
Blindly following the herd

On the top floor
Of my building
Got my head up in the clouds
It makes my life much easier
On the top floor
Of my building
Got my head up in the clouds
Up in the clouds

On the top floor
On the top floor
On the top floor
On the top floor
Track Name: Save Face
Working for peanuts at a deli
Consistently busy
I ain’t making that much weekly
I rely on customer mercy

Slaving away for starvation salary
With my diploma-less boss yelling at me
But I’m cool
Don’t let it get to me

Trying to save up
I got to save up
To swing from the bottom to the top
Hard to save up
Not to burn in all up

What will we do for money
When it’s all gone
What we’re gonna do
What we’re gonna do
When it’s all gone
When it’s all gone
When it’s all gone

When it’s all gone
When it’s all gone
When it’s all gone

It’d be so easy to call him
Wait by the door, buzz him in
Pour him a drink, invite him in
Dry my tears, then cash in

How can I put it so you understand
The truth might cause our end

Trying to save up
I got to save up
To swing from the bottom to the top
Hard to save up
Not to burn in all up

What will we do for money
When it’s all gone
What we’re gonna do
What we’re gonna do
When it’s all gone
When it’s all gone
When it’s all gone
When it’s all gone

When it’s all gone
When it’s all gone
When it’s all gone

Save face
Save face
Save face
Track Name: Icon
I welcome members of the upper class
Some despise me some think I’m a nice piece of ass
They assume they’re the ones I envy
Not impressed by their Louis, Guccis, or fancy jewellery

I got shit on my mind
I got you on my mind
Always

Just need to rise above it
All I care to know is that it’s temporary
I go through every pocket
Do what any girl has to do to make it
Maybe
In this world

But it won’t be long
Before I get to be
An icon
Please tell me I’ll get to be
One of those rare and timeless icons

My smile and my charms are my only weapon
I’d be foolish not to use it
When I know I’ve got it
‘get involved in futile flirtations
So I can reach maximum benefit

‘got money on my mind
Big dreams on my mind
Always

Just need to rise above it
All I care to know is that it’s temporary
I go through every pocket
Do what any girl has to do to make it
Maybe
In this world

But it won’t be long
Before I get to be
An icon
Please tell me I’ll get to be
One of those rare and timeless icons

Get me outta here
So I can become an icon
Track Name: Commitment
Grow up
What is it gonna take for you to
Grow up
Thought all along this was locked up
But in reality this shit’s just
Blowing up
Backing up
Make-up won’t cover it up no

And it’s not like we can just talk about it
Boy you know what you did
And it is not like we can just throw some money at it
I’m on a budget
You’re living off of it

I can’t pretend to be so innocent
Through your DMs I read what you can’t defend
And if I didn’t know
Now I know
Still you got a chance to show

Commitment
Commitment
Commitment
And it all comes down to your lack of
Commitment

Don’t feel no love
Don’t care for love
You know that it’s just a word
Don’t feel no love
Don’t care for love
You want a bony booty
Imma show you right now
Don’t feel no love
Don’t care for love
I don’t care for love
Unless you’re willing
To commit like I do

Don’t compare yourself to me
Don’t try to put your mistakes on me
I’m no angel myself
You know that very well
But boy would never do that to you, you know that

So it comes down to your commitment
Or lack there of
Commitment

Grow up
What is it gonna take for you to
Grow up
Grow up
What is it gonna take for you to
Grow

Who do you take me for
Do I look dumb to you
Don’t you want to hang no more?

Who do you take me for
Do I belong to you
Am I allowed outdoors?

Who do you take me for
Do we look done to you
Do we deserve an encore?

Who do you take me for
Do I look dumb to you
Don’t you want to hang no more?
No more
Track Name: But You, Everybody Is
You show you care
In your own way
Free love in a tiny plastic flask
You don’t even expect me to pay
Only to drink it while you roll some grass

I don’t wanna smoke any tonight
Just need someone to bring me to life
Then bring the party inside
As long as you please you can decide

Can’t you tell everybody is rooting for you
But you, everybody is
Rooting, rooting
Can’t you tell everybody is rooting for you
But you, everybody is
Rooting, rooting
All rooting for you

Just get up on it before it’s gone
Before I say that we’re through
Get up on it, it won’t be long, no

If you wrote it
No one should take credit
Gotta give credit where credit is due boo
Just can’t let anyone take advantage of you
If you’re the bubble gum they get to chew
Then this first one’s free
Next time you charge
This one’s on me
Next time I charge
Next time I charge

Can’t you tell everybody is rooting for you
But you, everybody is
Rooting, rooting
Can’t you tell everybody is rooting for you
But you, everybody is
Rooting, rooting

But you
Everybody is
But you
Everybody is
