Like an angel

She sings like an angel
at least that’s what they say
she looks like a child
giving happiness away
the fear within her eyes
like mirrors to a soul
a vision of a girl
never to grow old
she sings like an angel
high upon a cloud
she sings about the pain
as though it is profound
a heart that breaks like glass
with eyes that shed diamond tears
the world that she inhabitants
draws visions from her ears
and everything she sings
decays her soul some more
she lost all of her feathers
when her wings fell to the floor.

We’re all complicit

We’re all complicit
when our heroes turn out wrong
we want that brand new song
yes we all will sing along
we’re all dismissive
because we don’t want to give up
we want what we want
it’s far too hard to sacrifice
we want the difference
the good the bad between
we don’t want to be saviors
it’s too hard to be so clean
so we will back them
back those we know have killed
the child abusers
the animals that never heal
we damn the ones
the ones who have already served time
but won’t give up
give up the ones that prey in the light
we’re all complicit
as we keep demons as our friends
they make bad choices
but in the end it isn’t them
we’re all complicit
when it comes to those we love
we hold them up
even when we know the evils done
oh he’s a rapist
that one a pedophile
he hurts children
that one beats women
and she’s real violent
but we just ignore it
it’s too hard to keep the score
we’re all complicit
and won’t admit we’re sorry inside
it’s why we hate ourselves
why we eat the good alive
because it’s criminal
to hide the truth so deep inside
we’re all complicit
we know the evil by first name
we’ll buy the album
and defend our friends against
due shame
we’re all complicit
because we never say the name

In the name of youth

Let’s redeem R Kelly
how that feels to read
let’s forget his crimes now
oh now that we believe
why do we trust these victims
only when they’re adults
why must we beat the children
devour the youth at any cost
let’s redeem R Kelly
cancel someone else instead
he can still make music
he can still give bread
let’s redeem R Kelly
oh why must we love fiends
but only when they abuse children
yes them we protect with ease
we unbury the dead, dig graves
and piss on them
we’d rather repeat ourselves
with lies and ridiculous doubt
let’s forget the truth
what we know and what we knew
let’s eat the children destroy the youth
all for some immortality pursuit
never grow old just sacrifice the new

A boy like brother

Let’s get defensive
let’s get mean
let’s talk about reality
you wanna excuse
excuse behaviors
is it cause your brother
or just the new dick savior?
Nicki feeling thirsty
got that cheap on the brain
wants to get defensive
he was just fifteen
forget about the manslaughter
just float on being queen
drag yourself through dirt again
just to prove you real
garbage is a hell of drug
when you pretend to deal
so let’s get defensive
she runs her own life
so we can judge Nicki
for choosing a dud
a register sex offender
because her family is love.

Anti is the new pink

Grimes what a little girl
oh how she loves the world
oh an anti-capitalist
she knows how lucky she is
that fans
don’t really understand
that if
she’s truly an anti capitalist
that she
she’d be doing this
for free
and don’t you say
she has to make a living
you can stay
off the grid away from doing
what you hate
and so passionately
want to destroy
but see she’s playing
with her toys
she’s got a bank account
and cashes checks to pay the bills
she’s investigated
all her boyfriend’s union deals
pretend is fine
but when you take it
quite this far
oh yes you are
a hypocrite in clothe and garb
it’s all the same
you are the company you keep
lovers that you seek
you are an extension of these
because we are
we are what we surround
he hasn’t left this ground-but
my boyfriends like so cool now.

Witness

Wanna be woke
like me-
dope like me
speak the words
I think
are so so deep
keep it all in my wallet
these thoughts ain’t cheap
buy my newest album
and get enlightenment
for free.

I’m the Pope and the Queen
beyond that 90s MTV
the big thinker
I am free-number one gun
it’s all for me.
When you eyelids shut
you pretend to be
someone on top
the woke supreme-

What the fuck
does that
even mean?

but still you wanna be

Woke like me
speak broke like me
swish swish to the itch
that broke my dream
you know she’s got plenty
bling bling bling
used Migos to sell
her scene

Wanna be woke like me
wanna be spoke like me
wanna pretend that you read
while speaking from your feet
half-wit philosophy
pretend I know of Socrates
but still use words like woke
and shit
do you even know what growth is?

Katy and the N word

This is an activist
this is your ‘Woke’ princess
a woman with foul intent
makes money on lies
and tits
cuts her sex off for this
a statement on what she is
just a rich bigot-
with butch hair,
no kids-unhappy life isn’t fair.
All this money
but soul’s gone bare,
broken and tattered
she’s all alone-no one’s there,
quinoa in your teeth but nobody cared-
left you looking fool for your red carpet affair.
Oh poor little Katy
can’t even pay for a date
one that might keep those pesky morsels away-
maybe that’s why
when you’re being real
you have no problem comparing black to black
fuck-Katy Perry
says nigger in fact.

Coachella Queen

So, here we are again-
Lady Gaga lies and then
uses words like love
to blend
selling versions of herself again
that truly never actually existed.
‘The cure’ an anthem of self aggrandizement
to hide the shame within
she’s just like a trust fund kid-
talked shit on Paris Hilton
but the truth is-you’re far worse than she’s ever been.
At least she’s honest
unlike Stephani
who has always had money
but plays dive bars, honey
wears crop tops and tones that body
to perform bare foot and rowdy
like a lower class shawty?
Says she doesn’t have fancy things
but her trash is fancy
in comparison to weeds
sun dried sticking up through concrete
bet Lady Gaga wouldn’t walk
San Bernardino streets.

Katy’s umbrella

Turned a chapter
turned a page
wrote a new book
it’s all the same
hacked off her hair
still not a bride
doesn’t that ego keep
you warm at night?

Turned a chapter
changed her game
pretended to rewrite
but the words
are the same
keep pretending
you’re different
empowered and strong
pretend you’re not Katy
not Katy at all,
not the pop star
who spends tears
wishing she was just a mom.

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.
