We’re waking up and manifesting change
You set this world on fire
And now use us to blame
Roll your eyes because I’m a millennial
When the baby boomers fucked up our world

You may find me rude
Well fuck you that’s cool
I’ve worked on perfecting my bitchy attitude

You can be lit anywhere
Everyday a new trend
You kind of look like clowns
Trying to stand out to fit in
Think you’re woke but you’re botched and insane
Fuck the dream because LA’s lame

I hate group chats
Fuck conventional sex
And if you’ve never lost your mind then found it
I just truly feel bad
Take a trip to the doc and then reject the meds
Why does your caption say lit
When your eyes say dead

Buy your tits lips and likes
Find out how high you can socially climb
Fauxoke not woke
You’re lost in a social contest
If you’re going to run your mouth
Make it make sense

LA's Lame

Pulse dead silent on the scene of an accident
Blurred vision trapped in a state of confusion
Try to take deep breaths
Try to regain control
They say the truth bleeds through your eyes
Guess mine bleeds gold

I swore this was real
Felt blood running through my veins
Perfect balance of pleasure and pain
Go from sweaty hot
To freezing cold
Cold shivers creeping as I wander the streets alone

Explosions crash into
Smoke and flames
Why can’t I remember your face
The stars crashed they blew up in the sky
I think the universe put us here as a sign
When the sun no longer shines
And the moon fades away
The spark in our eyes
Will never burn away
The stars crashed
Yeah they blew up in the sky
I know the universe put us here as a sign

Why is there
A ringing in my ears
Hair stands straight on my neck
My eyes flood with tears
Something in the air feels strange
Lost in the chaos of fear
Even though I know this is new
It somehow feels familiar

I know this was real
I know I’m thinking straight
Beam me up
Like my bodies made of clay
Tell me all the magic and secrets
Only a few minds hold
The pigments in my eyes go freezing cold
The stars crashed they blew up in the sky
The universe put us here as a sign
The stars crashed they blew up in the sky
The universe put us here as a sign

Star Crash

You were too confident
I was too shy
Your one in a million
Im one of a kind
Invaluable
A delicate wild
But you were to impatient
To ever realize

Rome wasn’t built in a day
You cant change
Overnight
You see the glass half empty
And I don’t see why

If you cant see im
Worth the wait
Then your clearly blind
Because great things take time
It’s disturbing to wonder
What goes on in your mind
One day you’ll find
Great things take time
(Great things take time)
Great things take time

You need to slow down
Stop rushing around
Your gunna keep missing out
Your disconnected form yourself
Curse of a small town
Drowning in doubt
Gasping for air
Screaming but never make a sound

To numb to cry
Hollow eyes
Cant comprehend
An open mind
Cant imagine different
Or anther life
I hope you find the light switch
Before you die

Great Things Take Time

You think being rude
Is gunna get a you a taste
It’s a beautiful day
So chill with the shade
I’m a lot things
But stupid? (Ha) No way!
Not boo, Not bae, No, I’m not your babe
Not boo Not bae No, I’m not your babe

Ew back up
Out of my personal space
Have a tic tac
Before you get in someone’s face
Call me whatever
I refuse to feel ashamed
I know I’m not always right
But hey, I’m never fake

Sad and desperate
Buying anything a drank
Sorry I’m not thirsty
So no fucking thanks
I’ll take the cash though
And throw it in the bank
Your creepy bro
Hit on anything that breaths

I know I’m hard to handle
But I don’t give a fuck what you think
Wanna start a convo and ask my name
Babe back up
Let me set the record straight
Not boo, Not bae, No I’m not your babe
Not boo Not bae no im not your babe

Baby Back up your
Invading my personal space
Yeah you like this ass?
Well enjoy it one last time
As I walk the fuck away

I said piss off
I wasn’t joking
There is no chemistry
We didn’t share a moment
Don’t act dumb like
Where are my keys?
I don’t know or fucking care
Start walking
Alright I’m done
Nothing left to say
Pretty sure I made it clear
I’m not your babe

Not Your Babe

My faith is fading
As my mind grows
It’s getting harder
To laugh at dumb jokes
Everything I thought I knew
I’ve been shown
there always another way
there’s always another road

I’ve given it my all
Lord knows
Am I losing my faith
Or just getting bored

No I don’t want to lose hope
I think we can make it another day
No I don’t wanna lose hope
When it feels like there’s a way
The worlds keeps spinning
Further your drifting
I want you to stay
No I don’t want to lose hope lose hope

You only get one life with so much time
I don’t want to waste mine
on a mistake
I don’t wan’t to give up
Or go down the wrong road
I don’t want to lose focus
I don’t want to lose hope

I’ve lost friends
I’ve lost my mind
How strong I feel
is the reason why
I cant let go
No no no
I don’t wanna lose hope

Lose Hope

Dim the lights
Flip the hourglass
It kills to let go
You’re not ready yet
This isn’t giving up
That wasn’t some test
You know I love you but
Can we just be friends?

This just isn’t working
We can both admit
The truth can hurt
Sometimes
Ignorance isn’t always bliss
Always out of sync
Or frustrated
Need to escape this state
Of depression

Pacing back and forth
There’s a war in my head
I'm not selfish or immature
This really has to end

Sometimes life isn’t perfect
I'm not a bad person
No matter we do
Were always hurting
You know in my heart
I truly wish you the best and
You know I love you but
Can we just be friends?

Maybe things changed over time
It’s not really your fault or mine
And we can both go insane
Trying to place blame
The full moon spoke to my heart
And I've cleared my head
Were going to ruin our lives
If we don't call this what it really is

Sparks may fly but disappear
When the flames die out
They leave hot embers
Went from my best friend
To a stranger
I know you deserve the best
We both know that’s not here

Friends

It all started with love
Holding hands in the sun
After winters first snow
It all melted as you
Walked me home
For a second I thought
Our love changed the world
But then the skies flipped
And it started to storm

Disaster struck
You saw the flash
I herd the boom
We felt it crash

My hearts in a thunderstorm
Eyes warm
Tears pouring down my face
Hear thunder roar
My hearts sore
Lightning strikes me
In my place
Blown away
In a hurricane
Scattered all the thoughts
I had in my brain
High winds danger zone
My hearts a thunderstorm

I’ve done all I can
Still left with nothing
Was I raised to love pain
or are you just sick in the head?
got me questioning myself
was I the problem or
is my moral compass broken?

Left standing in a field
In the dark all alone
In the distance I see
Lighting strike my old home
So I close my eyes
To drown it all out
And all I can hear
Is the thunder yell

Thunderstorm

Ladies have you ever had a boy buzz around you
Like you’re the queen to his hive
But your honey not bumble
Don’t know what to do
When he won’t take a hint and has no clue
vete a la mierda
Oh sorry you don’t speak Spanish?
Verpiss dich
No not German

Trying not to be rude
But your not getting the message
And you won’t go away
I don’t we speak the same language

My mama taught me to always be nice
Unless their creepy and aggressive
If I’ve said no 3 times
Of course I’m gunna be a bitch
Back up that’s enough
You’ve tested my patience
Can you really not see
We’re speaking a different language

You can say it’s my fault because
All sexy and done up but
It’s my right if I want to look hot and go to the club
Trying hard with all this
voulez vous que che avec moi
Is that you attempt at being cultured
Mr Lady Marmalade

I’m done being polite
You’ve run out of chances
Why you giving me French
When I pressed 1 for English

Your clearly confused
Think your confident
But heres the truth
You define desperate
No means no
Do you need a thesaurus
Not now not ever
How can I make it more clear
Honestly though
How do you not understand
We obviously don’t speak
The same language
