Track Name: Flowers To My Demons
1. Flowers To My Demons

Pick my naps in public, I’m a happy tree
I’m a Ross painted pretty bitch, Shout out Lil B
But I know what the city needs, I can hear her speak
“I don’t like you. Un-invite you. You’re my allergy”

Dark as nitro but my heart is light as Streep’s
I can be so damn indecisive when it comes to me
I don’t know what this feeling means, my reflection screams
“I don’t like you. Un-invite you. You’re my allergy”

I sent flowers to my demons
After I cast them out I turn back and invite them
If this microphone could see me
Then you’d find out that I mostly live in silence
Staring sideways at my fears
Till they find out it’s not my concern to hide them
I still shower with my demons
Tried to fight it now I’m not afraid to like it

I need you need something new
I need you I need something new
I need you need something new
I need you I need something new

I need you need something new
I need you I need something new
I need you need something new
I need you I need something new

I sent flowers to my demons
After I cast them out I turn back and invite them
If this microphone could see me
Then you’d find out that I mostly live in silence

I need you need something new
I need you I need something new
I need you need something new
I need you I need something new

I need you need something new
I need you I need something new
I need you need something new
I need you I need something new
Track Name: Gimme Gimme
2. Gimme Gimme

Nnamdi came through with the hot sauce
Damn I’m the shit and you know that
I ain’t tryna hang out with you bitch
You should curb that
Scoot scoot roll out of my lens
I don’t know you. Who you think a nigga is?
Chu gon’ learn now
Hot shit dropping off the wick I don’t burn out
Ain’t been humble in a bit
It’s my turn now
I’m gon’ take all of the shit that I earned now
Give me everything that I deserve

Gimme gimme! I want
Gimme gimme! I want
I want money, I want hundreds, I want you to show me love now

Gimme gimme! I want it
Gimme gimme! I want it
I need cash, I need racks, let em stack, let em stack

Gimme gimme! I want
Gimme gimme! I want
Coupe of Tubmans, twenties and hundreds
I wanna ball big, on my Lebron shit
Y’all better come with it now

Gimme gimme! I want it
Gimme gimme! I want it
Now now, I want it now

Nnamdi came through and he bossed up
Damn I’m legit And you know that
Y’all can’t even get me out the bed I don’t leave my
Bed unless you brought a check

Gimme that now
Gimme that gimme that
Gimme that gimme that
Gimme that gimme that
Gimme that

Word around Word around Word around town
Heard you don’t fuck with me now
Betchyou gon’ switch it up when I make pounds
And you gon’ look like a clown

I don’t like giving out none of my time
Unless you brought plenty of dimes
Guess I been guess I been taking my time
Now I want all of the shine

Gimme gimme! I want
Gimme gimme! I want
I want money, I want hundreds, I want you to show me love now

Gimme gimme! I want it

Track Name: Bullseye
3. Bullseye

I'm too selfish to decide yeah
I'm so self centered what do I care
Shoot shots straight through all the time
Bullseye
I'm so hyper watch me climb yeah
So gassed up can't see decline
I'm a big brat I can't pick a side
Push you of the slide
Time out time out time out

I'm split I can’t pick a side now
Okay let’s play what’s your sign I'm
Two faced they say Geminis are
Shoot straight I can't tell a lie

Can't find the line to define you
So fine recline take a bite yeah
Four thighs two on either side
That’s a bullseye

I'm a big ole brat and you laugh when I say that I need all that
Shoot 'em down then come around and take it back
Quiver out when i'm bowin' around hit the middle
Bullseye

I'm a big ole brat and you laugh when I say that I need all that
Shoot 'em down then come around and take it back
Quiver out when i'm bowin' around hit the middle
I kid around but i've been around
I kid around but I've been around
I kid around but I've been around
Ain’t a game I wanna play
See Cupid's wings I shoot him down

Track Name: Everyone I Loved
4. Everyone I Loved

I’ve been changing with my age and
These ain’t phases I’m still that nigga
But now, Different things I used to care ‘bout
now just wear me out
Everything I love turns into dust

I try to Stop my brain when
It starts to fade away to new terrain
Try to catch myself when I keep complaining
Everyday I feel it changing me
Everything I loved now turns me off

I’m concerned with the things I’ve learned
It’s a little bit disconcerting
Wish I never learned
Wish I never learned about
I can’t never
Trust my elders or my friends again
Everyone of them has let me down

I’m afraid that I’m too jaded and
I’m impatient. I’m not waiting.
And I’m chasing
Money. Women. Cash. Pussy. Racks. I need Ass mmm
All my family I never call
I love em but we’re drifting apart
But I know they're all having trouble
Understanding why I chose this route
Everyone of them has turned to dust

And I hope my folks still pray for my soul
Even though I strayed from it all
Will I get erased?
I don’t want to fade all alone

And I hope my folks pray for my soul
Even though I strayed from it all
Will I get erased?
I don’t want to fade into dust
Track Name: Wasted
5. Wasted

I Love to hear you speak
Judgment free
Just be real

I want you to feel safe. No…
Need you to be safe. Ya.

Spread that heat I pick em up coal in my head
Can’t barely stop thinking of burning my flesh
Might fog your vision up in a sauna
My tempo pick it up piggyback

OINK

Open up I’ll listen every word I’ll breathe it in and hog it up
But I can’t read your eyes
They’re like melted braille on ice

All ears propped up like Dumbo
Might seem like I’m timid no
You don’t gotta sugar coat
I can take it like a Fentanyl

Open your soul
Show me your soul
Tell me all your feelings
I wanna know more
Gotta know more
Gotta know what you’re thinking just

Tell me what you want me to hear
Cause I ain’t got time to waste
I ain’t got time to waste
I don’t got I don’t got

Tell me what you want me to hear
Cause we ain’t got time to waste
We ain’t got time to waste
We don’t got we don’t got
We don’t got time

I need you need something new
I need you I need something new
I need you need something new
I need you I need something new

I need you need something new
I need you I need something new

Give you anything that you want
If you ask me yeah you deserve it all
Yeah you do, Yeah you do

Track Name: Glass Casket
6. Glass Casket

I wish I was a farmer
I wish I was an astronaut
So I could feed my family
And then take them somewhere very far away yeah

I wanna be a traveller
I wanna witness everything
And then bring you to my bedside
I dream about it even when I wake up

I think that I might lost my mind
Think that I might lost my mind
You don't care about the words that I sing
So I don't care about the burden it brings

This is something that I gotta try
This is just something that I gotta try
I don't care about the birds and the bees
No I just want you to have what you need

But that’s how you feel?
That’s how you feel. Yeah.
You just see failure
How could it be?
How could you think that?
You should know better

Pray to the stars
Pray to the moon
Pray something moves me
I can't be swayed. Nah. I think it's too late.

I wish I was a farmer
I wish I was an astronaut
So I could feed my family
And then take them somewhere very far away ya

I wanna be a traveller
I wanna witness everything
And then bring you to my bedside
I dream about it even when I wake up
Track Name: Perfect In My Mind
7. Perfect In My Mind

I had a plan and I assumed that
It would work out in the end but

I couldn’t find a way
I tried to make it work
But I couldn't make it right

Everything went so perfect in my mind
Track Name: Semantics
8. Semantics

Yeah I used to have friends
Yeah I used to roll deep
’Til I ruined my health
Ain’t been getting no sleep
I got sick of myself
I got sick of these dreams
Getting bigger my eyes
Start hallucinating

And I keep it low-key
Like the knob at my knees
Many people told me
I should probably start praying
When the darkness turns bright
Like a prism in heat
Push apart in the light
Like red sea when i’m near
See the coroner smile
While she’s lifting my feet
In the storage I lied
I can see it so clear
Now my troubles take flight
Cause their business aint here
When I cover my eyes
You can see what I feared

Yeah I did it myself
Yeah I did it all me
Don’t need none of y’all help
Yeah I did it all me
You can’t handle no stress
Fuck it put on me
You can’t handle what’s next
Fuck it put on me

Yeah I used to have friends
Yeah I used to roll deep
Don’t need none of y’all help
Give a fuck what you think
You can’t handle no stress
Fuck it put on me
Yeah I did it myself
Yeah I did it all me

Living like WWE
Get the belt, put it on me
You Gotta be kidding yourself
If you think I’m giving up easy

Give up blood? No sir I don’t
Flip the bird cold turk
Let that soul iceberg
My callus are strong
My heart ride alone

Ain’t no gang
Kids solo dolo with my brain
Goin so low subway don’t know terrain
Monorail and fail and at it again
Town to town and all them tell me to clone
Nnamdi blacker ain’t no bitch in my blood
I fall leafed it parked in kennel like pugs
Whistle dog and I no care it’s like bugs
Creepy crawlin’ drown my melanin mud
Kinda love to
See em bawlin’ cause the seed has fallen
Spread my fertile pollen
Rooted & starting to bud
Light year last year new man and he be buzz
No rest on my lips light no drool on my tongue
No rasta marley like no chulo my tone
Bark at fuzz I like from peaches no guns
Shots burn moths off like it’s tickin’ time bomb
Cop might lick this tick I’m Timon

My dad thinks I’m jaded. I am.
What if I changed into someone I can’t fix
My inner grinch need a bandage
Cursing out fuck the world in every language
Now who feeling jaded I am
I changed into someone I can’t fix
Changed into someone I can’t fix

Yeah
Yeah I did it myself
Yeah I did it all me
Don’t need none of y’all help
Yeah I did it all me
You can’t handle no stress
Fuck it put on me
You can’t handle what’s next
Fuck it put on me

Yeah I used to have friends
Yeah I used to roll deep
Don’t need none of y’all help
Give a fuck what you think
You can’t handle no stress
Fuck it put on me
Yeah I did it myself
