So beautiful, life’s beautiful
even from the gutter it’s so colorful
like clay I have, molded my self
to a monster with a core full of wealth
don’t tell me that, God’s strange to me
when I’m made of God she took care of me
I’m the cutest lil fucker in the planet
and I’ma floss it even if you hate it or you love it now

when life gives you lemons
peel em for martinis and slice em for margaritas
give the world a drunken haze and preach your propaganda

Coming of age
this is the dawn of our time
the grapes of wrath
we bleed vintage wine
we’ve come of age
this is the dawn of our time
lift your head to the sky
smell the sunshine

Yesterday no one thought that
I would make it this far in life
from many wars I have fought at
gaining scars and learned to be wise
glad to know that I’m still here
and, this is how I live my life
I change herstory for a livin
may these chants soon decolonize
the mind

(2x- take it back, what we lost, never give up what is ours)


(2x- Let’s bring the world to a blaze)
light it up
blaze it up


(2x- Let’s bring the world to a blaze)
light it up, blaze it up
inhale, and exhale
and pass it around, and pass it around.
