Woke {Intro}

I knew a couple of fake niggas

Who said they would die for us,

But now

They can't look straight towards us.



My mom told me "boy better be cautious"

People can redirect your focus

Promises

That's a whole lot of hocus pocus

I guess it’s true what they say

You can love all

But

You can't trust none.



You thought you had me broken

I'm sorry to tell you

This is just the calm before the storm

I'm woken.



Judgement

Now I'm not one who cares what people think

But lately these thoughts are getting to sick.

And your words are cutting too deep

The whole world is watching

How you can't do anything right.

The whole world is watching



The anxiety attacks are back

Suicide thoughts don't seem to end

I seem way off track

Life isn’t for me

That's a fact.



No.

Screw that

Who do you think you are?

To tell me what to do?

Who do you think you are?

To tell me what to be?

Who do you think you are?



Last time I checked

I am human, just like you

But I'm not to be played with

I'm no one’s tool



I am human, just like you

Accept it or not

I don't care.

But I refuse to be degraded

By someone who's no greater



Changed

Life is unpredictable

So they say.

One moment everything

Moves peacefully,

Next moment can be a tragedy.

This is a form of trickery.



Life is unpredictable

So they claim.

If you don't live with a set of principles

You could end up miserable.

Society has mapped out your fate

And the end is critical.



Life is not unpredictable

Life has heartache and pain Life has happiness and sadness

There's always something to gain.

Your life can change

It is up to you if you want to live in vain

Or become better at this game.



H.E.R

Let me paint you a picture

Of the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen

Even I find it hard to believe

She is truly an amazing creature

She has long brown hair

Man it’s so thick

Her eyebrows are on fleek

And she has make-up on her cheek.

Her smile so beautiful

Thanks to her lip-stick.



Sadly, she's not real

She's hiding behind a mask

Pretending to be someone she's not.

Beauty products is all that you feel

Her natural skin has been killed

If only she knew

The world needs someone that's real

Not someone perfect



I need someone that’s real

Not perfect



Fly

We all lose someone at some point

We're not to blame, it's not our fault

But this is really not fair

It's hard not to care

Knowing that person might be gone someday

And the pain will be a lot to bear.

I wish I could fly

That way I won't be so shy

I will be able to see you everyday

There won't be any more goodbyes



They say distance is merely an obstacle

But who am I without you by my side

The day we were separated

Something inside me evaporated.



We will reunite one day

Time lost between us will be repaid

But until that day

I will continue on wishing...



I wish I could fly

That way I won't be so shy

I will be able to see you everyday

There won't be any more goodbyes

Just good vibes.



Dear Diary

Dear Diary.

These voices are trying me

They don't want to go down silently

I feel them becoming violent

They want release the monster inside of me



Dear Diary

I'm becoming someone I'm not

Dear Diary

I think I'm losing myself

Dear Diary

I'm gone.



Anxiety is real and a sign of help.

If you know someone who's suffering from anxiety,

Don't judge but love that person,

Cause in the end we all want to be love.



Fake Smiles

I tried being happy for a while

Everything was going fine

Until I realized

It was all just a lie.



We all come from somewhere

We all got a story to tell

We all try to hide the pain

But does it seem to fade away



I looked in the mirror

And I saw a broken me looking back

I thought the mirror was cracked

I decided to cover the mirror with something bigger

But wherever I saw a reflection of myself

It was still cracked.



I realized there's no use

Trying to hide behind

A fake smile,

While I'm broken inside



October 22nd {Outro}

The day my life began

I'm still not a fan

A child is a blessing

A child is heaven-sent

A child who’s smoking cigarettes

Just to numb the pain.



The day my life began

There's nothing special about me

I'm just another number

To the people in power.

I was born a ghost,

I guess that's my superpower.



All I have is a dream

And that's for my thoughts to be seen

I'm not trying to be no "has-been"

I also want the life I see on the TV screen



The day my life almost ended

I had a wakeup call like

Why do you want to kill something so precious?

Don't let life fool you with sadness

Focus on what's special

And maybe one day, you will find greatness.
