How many black men does it take to fill a prison?
And how many brown bodies does it take to fuel a system?
How many poor ones does it take to inspire a light bulb moment?
How many light bulb moments does it take to control a people?
How many traumatised people will it take to keep your corrupt systems in place?
To keep your corrupt systems in place
To keep your corrupt systems in place

The world spins round
We’re all dizzy now
The world spins round
We’re all dizzy now

Who’s fooling who? Who we kidding?
How long will we be tricked into buy this buy that?
Who made your phones? Who made your clothes?
Which chemical flows in whose rivers?
But who cares right?
Cos you look pretty fly tonight, dressed up going out tonight
In your new threads
Pain the town red but with whose blood?
Not mine, not yours
But those other people way way way over there
What can I do? So who cares right?
Paint the town red tonight
Yo blud come on lets paint the town red tonight
Let’s go

The world spins round
We’re all dizzy now
The world spins round
We’re all dizzy now
The world spins round
We’re all dizzy now

Among rocks and stones you found precious gold, the treasure is me
Lets appreciate that what we create is revolutionary
And as we entwine we open our minds in a meaningful way
Yes I’m asking you to try something new and I just have to say

There’s this thing that I like that I want you to recognize
Yo there’s this thing that I like that I want you to recognize

If you don’t ask you don’t get
If you don’t ask you don’t get
If you don’t ask you don’t get
If you don’t ask you don’t get

This is my truth what I need from you, dedication and time
And well get our fill if you bring the skill and a willing to try
Get a likkle lower, move a likkle slower, we got time to grow
Always aim for better, we’re in it for pleasure heavy as a feather

There’s this ting that I like that I want you to recognize
Yo there’s this ting that I like that I want you to recognize
Yo there’s this thing that I want and I need you to get involved
Your there’s this ting that I like and I want you I want you
To give it bring it

We got so far to go if they can’t let dem feelings show

‘Cos boys do cry

What’s it like from where your standing?
Sometimes life is too demanding
What’s a man to do with a feeling so taboo?
Don’t be weak and don’t be somber
Don’t you know you should be stronger?
Man the fuck up they say
But they don’t know the war your fighting

And boys do cry

Track Name: #stoptellingwomentosmile
Either you assume that there’s something wrong
Or you believe I’m here for pleasing you
Did nobody teach you how to hold your tongue?
I’m no damsel I need no rescue
If you don’t like my face take your eyes off my face
Your micro aggressing is nothing new

Smile smile smile smile for me
I’m not here for you and I don’t owe you anything
Smile smile smile smile for me
I’m not here for you and I don’t owe you anything

Who’s making all of these rules round here?
About how a woman is supposed to be
Listen close while I make something clear
Your opinion means eff all to me
Don’t criticise my face, take your eyes off my face
You don’t deserve a vision so lovely as me

Track Name: A Womxn Pt 2
How does the river flow and how does it feel to grow?
I can tell you everything I know
I suffered formerly from susceptibilities to plenty fuckery
There were things that I would put up with before
That I can’t be dealing with no more
That I can’t be fucking with no more
There were things that I done that I did right or wrong
That’s for me to decide ‘cos I control the tide

You can’t fuck with me

A real life woman
I’m a full grown woman
I’m a bad ass woman
You cant fuck with me
I’m a hard back woman

I’m a warrior woman woman woman

Never too late to change, yourself you rearrange
Who made the rules anyway
Girl give fem fools a swerve, go get what you deserve
Believe in your own worth
There were things that I would put up with before
That I can’t be dealing with no more
That I can’t be fucking with no more
I am whole I am tough I am brave I am enough for myself
Can’t please everyone else yo

You can’t fuck with me
