Track Name: Don't Come to the Woods (Produced by Backxwash)
V1 : Let’s get straight to the nitty gritty/
I’m Pegasus in the mixy/
In case you ain’t aware how we getting busy/
Embarrassed by competitors I'm petty as ever/
I’m menacing in layers of leather in greatest of temperatures/

Ding dong the bitch is here/
I been summoned from a hundred and 50 years/
Gout a couple things to mummer since the witch is here/
Lil bitch don’t come to the woods/

Hook : Don't come to the woods x4

V2 :Came through Medusa's back, a look of that,
gonna turn em to into runes and slabs/
Brutish plan? Revenge on stupid man/
Do it damn casket is suit for them//
Bitch i been waiting for my whole damn life/
To reanimate like fascinate this swole ass time/
baphomet of this faggot shit and im back in this/
Confuse Nazareth,with the panickness/
Track Name: Devil In a Mosh Pit (Produced by Flying Fisher)
V1: straight out the closet/
I met the fucking devil in the moshpit/
Dancing and shoveling anyone who approaches/
I’m having a gamble with many thoughts in my conscious/
The timing is umple I'm hazy and feeling nauseous/

i’ve seen him before/
And the angels won’t come kick in the door/
So my safety is limited sure/
If I sneak out the back he will leave me alone/

This ain’t eve Lucifer cause Lucifer's dope/
It’s a fuck shit fuckity dude that I know/
I'm screaming fuck this this fuck this stupid I know./
Fuck this whole fucking stupid ass show

V2 : I ain’t here to sell my soul, are ya here to take my soul?/
Why men always gotta destroy things,
I stutter as I make my way up the toilet/
And the band that i'm listening is kind of distorted/
Trapped in this room no multiple choice shit/

I shoulda brought a carton to stack up on soylent/
All these boyish charms turn harmful with all this/
The boisterous hunt for the fragile and honest/
I they know this fuck and the bastards exploit this/

Triple sixes on the dance floor/
He knows this so he lingering to glance for/
An opening for the women to harass more/
Exploding like litten up a blast door/

I might gonna have to call an exorcist/
Just to show these motherfuckers that they won’t in/
If it backfires then I’ll make my way to the back/
There's a devil in a mosh and Im stating the fact cmon
Track Name: Foundation + Face Tattoos (Produced by Flying Fisher)
V1: Never been a rich bitch always been a witch bitch/
Niggas with the digits, bout to get their shit lit/
Niggas got the millions we run up in their building/
Niggas catching feelings we running in theY business/
I’m fucking up a rich bitch, always been a witch bitch/

Bridge : WE RUNNING UP THE KITCHEN/
FUCKING UP THE SYSTEM/
LISTENING TO BITCH FITS/
MAMA WE GON GET THIS/

V1 : I told Paris Hilton her dress was dope
She was holding on to some pearls so I let them go/
Kim Kardashian with the fashion I met her so/
Then I ran her bag for some yeezes and take it home/

Is that too harsh but maybe so, rob from the rich/
Take your pic so you fed for long/
I’m fucking Karl Marx in this wig in the reddest coat/
Hand on my chest like breathe here’s the stethoscope/

Without saying rob a nigga give to sisters that need it/
Reach for riches expede em from evil in system/
Seizing the means of this shit for the weak and the feeble/
Pin or a needle we freeing the people?


End chorus in other voice
Track Name: Bad JuJu (Produced by Flying Fisher)
v1:Boy I will put the roots up on you, Don't wanna go too hard on you I promise/
My grandma told me I should loose up on you, Don’t make me wanna do it on ya I promise/
Most mischievous witch bitch that you ever seen/
All my enemies In the deep no neck and spline/
Fuck A referee Ending em with telepathy/
Fuck em let me be all men will be dead to me/

I know a bitch with some nails in his back/
impaled to the braili’ll mail him this rap/
Put a spell on a bitch and tell him on snap/
My ju ju so bad and I’m telling em that


Chorus : It’s Bad Bad JuJu in the bitch/
You DONT WANNA SEE ME LOOSE in this bitch Bitch im/
Bad Bad Juju in this bitch/
You don’t wanna seen me rude up in this shit bitch it’s bad/

V2 : Boy I will put the shit right on you don’t make me wanna flick it on you,
I’m Saying I’m More Viscous In Speech I talk Different/
I caught wind fo the beats they knock different/

Y’all dun let the trans in this bitch/
With The fags and the hags in demand in this shit/
And The drags with the panic attacks In the zip/
We randy as fuck Understand it’s the clique/

In the wake of the spirit witches and liches/
Homophobes keep wishing it couldn't get any different/
Sentences in the sermons are pushing for a repentance/
My Middle fingers too hospitable it’s feigning on all these bitches
Track Name: Deviancy (Produced by Sugeryhead)
V1 : My pastor asked me if pass this acting and transy rapping/
My style past these ashy larries and pansy Catholics/
Smash the glasses of patriarchy and fuck all the missionaries of war/
Who pick the fights with the poor/
I see the sight of a scope/
With a clip inside of the pole/
I’m aiming at the any placements of Jesus up in ya home/
Kicking inside the door/
These racists went out the way to say witches are in the wrong/
And our visions do need assistances//

It’s ritualistic this ink has been on my skin and pigment/
Missionaries sicker inhibitions are evil wicked/
My people get it we’ve seen the picture and lived isn’t/
Our grim existence in equilibrium with evil spirits?/

Colonizers not hard to find in a hostile land/
prison with the prison food the contraband not lost to man/
I’m African I try to to do all I can and I know this damn/
live in inability when all lands been lost to man/

Revolution and execution lets set the mood/
12 guns let em through, bourgeois dead and poof/
Sheeit its survival with every place that we taken to/
Throw them up let em shoot, Fist up let em through

Hook : y’all need to throw up ya gunz/
Y’all need to load em and pump/
The battles over but I swear the war has only begun/
These niggas owe you enough/
You let the story be done?/


V2: I hate to tell you the cops wont save you/
They’ll harm and play you/
blacks will be smashed like grapefruit/
Blood is splashed like reygo/

Where the madness takes you,
YOU IN HEAVEN AND GLADY’S WAKES YOU/
THE NIGHT IS SO SAD AND SPECIAL FOR DEVILS/

Hear the whistle and think you you standing right be the kettle/
You see the evil its waving so blatantly I don't get you/
Fuck your grievances or any opinion you wanna say too/
Cause where the fuck was you at we needed you
Track Name: You Like My Body the Way It Is (Produced by Backxwash)
V1 : I had a dream that I would die and I would go to heaven/
I told Jesus to I’ll be fine I’ll be not accepting/
He saw the evil in my eyes and I won’t forget it/
I’m either being hypnotized or narcoleptic/

If he made me in his image/
It's amazing how I hate seeing any of my face up in the mirror/
So clear, I can’ take how every waking day im here/
can the devil be a lie when the angels disappear/

With you I'm so beautiful so, you so true to your soul/
Have no use for my flaws, I’m so truly at calm/
I wake up and every day I feel like bliss/
I try to pen up all my feelings there’s a message in my kiss


V2: can we wait a little minute/
Can I put a little lotion so my face a little clearer/
Apologize for the commotion or even taking it there/
I just hate how I look everyway that i could/

Maybe it’s my boobs they could be a little bigger/
Maybe it’s my cooch they could seam it little different/
I’m just saying if I could and the docs I understood/
I would sacrifice my soul for this life I never owned,

But when I'm feeling so cold, you don't get me a coat/
Your touch gives me the warmth, you don't leave me alone/
I look at you and everyday i think of bliss/
I try to pen these feelings here’s a message in my kiss
Track Name: Burn Me at the Stake (Produced by Backxwash)
V1 : ever since I started rapping, I put a target on my back/
I just thought I should be smarter than I am /
For every bullet that they shoot I’ll take it harder as I can/
I thought this shit was much harder THAN I PLANNED/


Fuck it If they want me they can come get me/
Got a tank is unleaded mixing that with a shank that’s blood shedded/
All my life I been black in the fist up/
Trans as I think of hitting the man in the hirror/1


So here I am burning on your cross/
I’m still standing here bitches once there energy is gone/
Check the letters in my palm, The message in my arm/
I’ll rather perish for I leave you with a chance I tell these motherfuckings yah/

V2 : I was born in a street of portholes and old roads/
Granny always thinks I'm a lost soul she don’t know/
Most my life this shit has been so so, picture me dolo/
Trapped my own soul in this snow globe/

Popo roaming round and asking like who is he/
The violence that the settles provided through you me/
Brutally, tier round the neck lit fumes can’t breathe/
Unusual screams beam from a place of no nuance/

And I'm my story i don’t make to home/
Just a remnant of the other lessons in a state of adolescent
Middle finger to my elders i don’t pray anymore/
You can burn me to a crisp but I won’t rest till I'm gone/00
