Track Name: Alien
Sometimes I write when I'm angry
Sometimes I sleep when I'm sad
When I'm happy all I wanna do is feel bad
When I feel something that doesn't make sense I can't accept that saying; "Well, you're only human"

So I leave my words out by the door
Stack up pennies on the floor
Let's play Spin The Bottle with a question mark to pair up some conflicting points of view
For seven minutes more
In the dark, tracing form
I hope it sounds like

La la la
Alien

When I'm staring in space
I often go back to a place like Atlanta, Midtown, my home
Me and my mom on a team
My cousins, they pick up their drinks
A pool table, we got stripes
You're on

I want to stop wanting and I want to save you trouble
But there are so many swimming in today
And tomorrow they will fly
And then on the next day they'll tire
They will dive
I hope they dive like

La la la
Alien

I am but really I am not
Really isn't really real
It's illusion
Just like "I'm only human"
Track Name: Shia
You surround me
Break me down
Laugh in my face
Turned around

Is what I am
On the news
Fear and hatred on the loose

I know the difference
I know we're all friends

Sad to anger
Anger sad
Me no likey
Hurts real bad

Is what I am
On the news
Fear and hatred on the loose

I know the difference
I know the reference
I know the difference
I know I know I know..
Track Name: Body
I don't wanna have a body
I don't wanna have nobody
I just wanna be free

I don't wanna have your money
I don't wanna have no money
I just wanna be free

I just wanna stay here forever

You won't shut up
I won't shut up
You just keep on goin
I only hear your self
Track Name: Pidge
The other day I saw
My cousin's around their mom
She had a stroke Friday
I didn't have anything to
I went and hugged Laura
Felt nothing but just love
Sam asked if I was ok
I didn't say anything cuz

My pain's the same
Family
My pain's the same
Family

Well if we're all family
Then we can say anything I guess
Just last week at Kings
A comedian was saying something
Dj he said that's racist
And I can see how he could see this
Having had a different experience
All I know is I'm so sick of this distance
Cousins

My pain's the same
Comedy
My pain's not the same
But that's pain
Empathy
My pain's the same
Family
Track Name: Stars
You say there's curiosity
Mine ended suddenly and so abruptly

So I chased after it again
Ripped past the dark curtain past every star
I know now outer space is limited
And it still scares me
I just wanna be the one who's still there

And I know that you're good for me
I know that there's so much more to know about me

So I chase after it again
Rip past the dark curtain past every star
I know now outer space is limited
And it still scares me
I just wanna be the one who's still there
