Entitled to my time Arguing your hate is right hours on the internet To grow your hateful statements I don’t owe you my time You’re angry if I don’t reply I’m wrong for being right You’re not entitled to my time Creeping into my dm’s Spamming for my attention I left you on read You wished me dead I’m not yours I AM NO ONE’S I don’t owe you my time You angry if I don’t reply I’m wrong for being right You’re not entitled to my time You angry if I don’t reply I’m wrong for being right You’re not entitled to my time

CHASE YOU OUT YOU’VE GOT NO CHANCE We’re like garden cats Protecting our own Protecting our home CHASE YOU OUT YOU’VE GOT NO CHANCE Flowers of all colors Like our bones We’re like garden cats CHASE YOU OUT YOU’VE GOT NO CHANCE I don’t want to live in the vessel But you remind me that I’m my home You make me feel invincible No matter how far we are home CHASE YOU OUT YOU’VE GOT NO CHANCE Chasing snakes and rats out of the tall grass you better watch your back We’ll CHASE YOU OUT YOU’VE HAVE NO CHANCE Chasing snakes and rats out of the tall grass you I’ll always have your back CHASE YOU OUT YOU’VE GOT NO CHANCE I don’t want to live in the vessel But you remind me that I’m my home You make me feel invincible No matter how far we are home

Rigged system Profits off students attendance Shaming kids for having lunch debt Humiliation instead of breakfast Rigged system Don’t want to be another number We are more than a statistic We aren’t less than anybody How many of us will it take Rigged system Pin you against suburban rich kids Pitted against one another I’m not your enemy Generations before us had to fight So nothing can stop us we gotta fight Rigged system Don’t want to be another number We are more than a statistic We aren’t less than anybody How many of us will it take

How can I even afford to be alive How can I even afford to die A paycheck should not determine my worthIn the end we’re all pathetic humans Destroying ourselves and the earth Destroying ourselves Destroying ourselves and the earth Tossing and turning and pacing around my head Our corporate bosses wouldn’t care we wish we were dead How can I even afford to be alive How can I even afford to die A paycheck should not determine my worth In the end we’re all pathetic humans Destroying ourselves and the earth Destroying ourselves Destroying ourselves and the earth How can I even afford to be alive How can I even afford to die A paycheck does not determine my worth

Have a free pass to murder Targets my community Yet they carefully escort white terrorists to burgers Filling their racist bottomless stomachs All my taxes for you to murder and Separating families Damn your blue threads and your compliancy Blue lives don’t matter They don’t protect me Blue lives don’t matter They don’t protect me Or my community Step down from your hierarchy Burn your white supremacy Blue lives don’t matter They don’t protect me Step down from your hierarchy & your white supremacy Blue lives don’t matter They don’t protect me Burn your privilege and your white supremacy So why do they get to breathe?

OUT OF LUCK OUT OF TIME Out of my mind I feel the days go by But I wait I’m running out of time Running dry on hope I’m running I’m running I can’t catch up I’ll never be fast enough I try still its not enough Steam roll my brain Iron out all the folds Bulldoze my heart Level it down to the ground Demolish me level it down Put me in the ground I’m trying I’m still trying This is all that I’ve got Just my luck I guess I can’t stop now So come with me cause we can’t give up Can’t back down not now can’t lose site of ourselves no! Time flies Love dies the worlds on fire the worlds on fire and Nobody listens nobody cares nobody gives a Fuck Steam roll my brain Iron out all the folds Bulldoze my heart Level it down to the ground Demolish me level it down Down to the ground Steam roll my brain Tear out my heart Leave it on display That’s the price for art Demolish me Defile me So you can profit off of it I leave the rest behind Do you lose my mind We’re running out of time

You’ve heard many times before There’s a calm after there’s a storm Sick of waiting around This self hatred will keep you down But the darkness encircles You’re in love with the cycles You have dug your own grave Waiting for that dirt to cave But now I can see there’s so many colors and I will be grateful to see the sunrise When I thought it was over Oh it just begun But now I can see that I’m all the strength that I need There’s no use in forgiving if there’s no forgetting It screws you up all the same Leaves a lingering sharp pain But the battles you’re fighting Seems its often lost before its won We can catch you if you fall I’ll be here through it all But now I can see there’s so many colors and I will be grateful to see the sunrise When I thought it was over Oh it’s just begun But now I can see that I’m all the strength that I need

I belong to all the places I’ve never been My lungs hate California Choking on the grey I’m neon when I’m away take me away Followed my feet Stood under a tree Listening to light rain bounce off neon leaves I swear I’m missing, Missing something The sky is different my heart is quiet These pockets are empty I’m missing something The sky is different my heart is quiet These pockets are empty IM. MISSING. SOMETHING. My head went silent the air is colder My heart is warmer I miss the feeling I’ll keep running til the hearth meets the sea Followed my feet Stood under a tree Listening to light rain bounce off neon leaves I swear I’m missing, Missing something The sky is different my heart is quiet These pockets are empty I’m missing something,I’m missing something The sky is different my heart is quiet These pockets are empty IM. MISSING. SOMETHING.
