Celebrities

Let me breathe
exhale inhale kinda thing
let me believe
I’m just a normal human being
a regular person
because I’m human am I not
did I do something
maybe something I forgot
and then it doesn’t hit you
not like it should in reality
that you ain’t normal
you ain’t a regular nobody
celebrity burns into your skin
you got the richest of the sins
you lose a lot to have it all
you lost the ordinary before the fall
let me breathe?
You don’t get a chance to say
because we own you
you ain’t like us though you play
you wish you were normal
had bills you need to pay
but it’s so much easier
easier when you get your way
and yeah you’re human
but that only means so much
you ain’t just living or scraping by
you got the ability to live the dream
and yeah money don’t buy happiness
and yeah you can still open up and bleed
but you ain’t like us
not a regular average nobody
you a star so high up
you lost what makes you like the rest
exhale and inhale
take another gold plated breath
take it in deep
and put more diamonds on your chest
because money don’t buy happiness
oh no it don’t
but you gave up normal
to be in the heavens oh so woke
you light up the sky
you ain’t down here like all the rest
you ain’t getting by
even if your mind is such a mess
you don’t know us
like you say we don’t know you
so ask again to let you breathe
exhale inhale kinda thing
but remember what you gave up
to live amongst the stars
you gave it up
you don’t get to take it back
you aren’t a regular average nobody tonight
you gave that up
so light our sky all up so right
glitter like gold because that’s what we want to see
you gave up normal so you could be a celebrity

Between Stefani and Selena

There’s an excuse for everything
a shutdown switch baby
you pull that lever sweet
drop the anvil and we scream
there’s an excuse for everything
working with a man
everyone says was bad
the project purifying
you thought your career was dying
so we blame it on our health
it’s mental just as well
can’t question what I sell
never it’s my trauma that is felt
there’s an excuse for everything
like selling wedding rings
do what you want with my body baby
and sing with a child rapist
I let him in just a little bit
there’s an excuse in this that’s it
blame it on my mental health
the universe is curious this time as well

Our stars today

We watch them die
then watch them eat themselves alive
we watch them soar
rip them apart forevermore
then see them twitch
watch them eat their fingertips
we see them mimic
create themselves within our image
we watch them die
puppets thought gods
we’ve seen them cry
watched them fall from in the sky
they hit the ground
they swallowed hard and then they found
we watch them die
lift them up to say goodbye
we want to see
abused by beautiful tragedy
so then they make
a play about their slow decay
and we will watch
and they will rot beneath the stage

Show folks and carni kids

Put it in perspective
put it your mind
that everything is different
from various other sides
do you have a blanket
or even just a couch?
Do you own a car or
have a pool to test out?
Sometimes you never see
the things that do exist
if you’ve ever owned a monkey
I’m tired of your shit
every tear that’s shed
is a tear for us to drink
your mental health has cost
and you can afford that shrink
so cry me a fucking river
and fill that river with cash
if I should feel sorry for Justin Bieber
I should get paid for that
perspective changes lots of things
turning entertainers into kings
we forget what show folk means
just carni kids that are paid to sing
so sing for me and accept your bed
if your life sucks-you’ve chosen it.

Halsey self identifies

Halsey is
white
skin is on
sight
we took
down Rachel
but let Halsey
prevail
she says
she’s not white
but how can
that be right
when her skin’s
so light
isn’t she
self identified?

Liberty dies in thunderous applause

Is Charlize Theron
returning to South Africa
with her kids to escape racism?
Does she know
what her homelands doing?
Does she care
of the blood their perusing?
She’d be safe
but only for a time
because she’s not a framer
but even rich don’t clean white
so when her kids turn their backs
will she remember then
her time in America
and fear for her kids
was South Africa the answer
when they take your land
repeat the evils of the past
but this time no one’s sad.
Is Charlize Theron returning home
without the past or present known?

Hollywood heroes

You are not responsible
you are not to blame
when a beast breaks your bones
you should not be shamed
but when you make the choice
to live it out through silence
you have made the choice
to give silent compliance
you are not to blame
for the abuse endured
but we all have choices
and we all live with pain
sometimes we choose silence
but then heal to speak again
and that is all just fine
but in the end still know
that when you choose silence
the abuser will own the show
do not misunderstand
this goes for those with power
a child’s choice of silence
a woman on her own
a man who will be silenced
even in his home
these victims are not powerful
they do not bathe in gold
but when you have the means
know you reap what you have sown.

Sweet sixteen

Lolita, Lolita,
all these baby divas
just too sweet to beat’em-
bet Roman Polanski would eat’em!
All these gilded ladies
merely idol babies
even Cosmopolitan’s not that crazy-
dating older men is just so passe,
these older broads-so nasty
get’em while they young?
That’s okay?
Tyga ain’t a man!
No way.
The Weeknd is just sad.
The old way.
Kate Hudson is a drag-
so thirsty-woman robs the cradle-
it’s just another Thursday?
All the rich and young-just prey
sacrifice them up-
its so great!
Kylie Jenner’s strong?
She’s okay?
This is all alright-it’s not though.
We once protected the young,
but that times gone.
Bella Thorne is just one-
in a hundred,
another child without a youth
just exploited-
by her own accord,
but we don’t stop it
or
tell them that it’s okay
not to flaunt it-
tell them it’s okay just to want it.
The world’s gone mad
and we just watch it
no one gives a damn-
just fuck off it.

Classism

Let them eat cake!
Let them be safe!
Let them donate!
Let them all pay!
Here we are again,
nobody’s your friend.
We shall end up dead
forgetting the rich have fed
on our skins and bones-
can’t you hear the moans?
Not reaping what you’re owed
but living life on loan-
all this stress for soul
this cost is all you know.
Pay until you sow
never to be let go
you belong right here-
sustained by ignorance and fear.

Jack knows how to write

Don’t take that money?
Don’t take that money?
My god Jack you took that money!
Honey-
you must think that I’m a dummy
rhyming schemes from sad to mad
frame your lady like she ain’t bad
whip that cream but just admit:
you take that check
just like your chick.
Everybody pays for the train
they may not take credit cards
but damn your loves lame!
Lyrics like this have gotten you fame
that’s not a feat
just makes lies outta your game
another rich kid playing in dirt
trying to make his worthlessness work.
Don’t take that money
how about stop selling your lies
made yourselves prostitutes
now trying to rewrite.
You are not real
not the middle class
if you were you’d know the importance
of taking cash.
