I dimmed my fire to match your flame Altered my perception to mirror your reflection Blood from a stone Now I wake up alone Revelations and lessons this is my confession Wet heat on my pillow How did we fade to black You're gold turned cold Gold turned cold You're gold turned cold Gold turned cold Got caught up in your confusion Seduced so sweetly by your delusion Dr. Jekyl talking future speaking ring size Mr. Hyde's unintentional lies Revelations and lessons this is my confession Wet heat on my pillow How did we fade to black You're gold turned cold Gold turned cold You're gold turned cold Gold turned cold I took pride in loving you Wild and free as the tides Infinite as the skies Honeycombed in black Until it died You're gold turned cold Gold turned cold You're gold turned cold Gold turned cold

You can't make a blind man see You can't take away his greed Destruction as progression's fee Strike me down I still won't bleed Lock me up with out the key I will still break free When they go low We go high When they go low We go high When they go low We go high When they go low We just RISE Does your pain keep you in chains? Feeling like the world has gone insane Masses so obsessed with fame Golden slaves without a name Kings and queens rise up from shame It's freedom we proclaim Actors in a cosmic play With your words what will you say Silence is a deadly game Speak truth and you liberate Karma burns on ancient flames Light warrior elevate When they go low We go high When they go low We go high When they go low We go high When they go low We just RISE

Around the heart We build a fortress Broken glass on the portrait To watch it bloom like purple orchids Then be destroyed Hurts in epic proportions But that's just where The Metamorphosis takes place Transforming on the inside Butterflies from caterpillars To feel with no restriction Twin flame and mirror image To move and groove within it Steer fearlessly in a world Where we so ego driven Kinship changes everythang There's no coincidences I found home when I had me no place to go (place to go) I ate though my cabinets was running low (running low) Miracles yeah yeah they happen everyday (all day all day) If I could I would give all y'all bouquets (all day all day) Give you yo flowers While you'll still smell em Till the pollen falls on your lips And you inhale heaven ummm hmmm Till the L word is manifested Sending blessings to all my Sistren and my Brethren Sevens Brick by brick Breath by breath Prayer by prayer Layer by layer Traveled to distant lands Baptized myself in turquoise water To be reborn again To come to a place Where love Reigns Supreme Where love Reigns Supreme Where love Reigns Supreme Where love Reigns Supreme Where love Reigns Supreme Where love Reigns Supreme Where love Reigns Supreme Where love Reigns Supreme....

Thought my heart was open like the sky but you broke it open to another stratosphere Light pours forth from a world within me that was not born until you arrived Reverberate your rhythm in the fabric of my stars Penetrate my origin Messy raw like molasses Hidden made to flourish in shadows Your secret drains my life force Danced your rhythm out of me or so I thought You keep showing up in my coffee, in my dreams, in parallel universes and in these streets Bonny and Clyde I've seen God in your eyes This love sacred, coated in hatred I like candles with prayers that your words and actions will dance a dance I'm more than what you know but your lenses don't allow you to see my light You call me a queen but tried to take away my crown I have given everything and more Placed myself on your alter time and time again I have given everything and more Placed myself on your alter time and time again Planted your seeds in my garden of dreams I die each day but awake in faith I light candles with prayers that your words and actions will dance a dance

What kind of fuckery is this? You've been talkin so much ish I just tried to be your friend I should've listened to my intuition You project as ammunition Playing victim like an addiction I'll transcend your affliction Cause I refuse to neglect my mission Some people try to be tall by cutting off the heads of others Some people feel so small they try to infiltrate lovers But stay unfuckwithable Yes I'm unfuckwithable Unfuckwithable Unfuckwithable Insecurity got you stuck in old patterns Like elementary school mathematics Ain't nobody got time for these dramatics I'm swimming forward while you're crawling backwards I can't drown in your disaster I'm determined as fuck like Saturn Queens making ceilings shatter Some people try to be tall by cutting off the heads of others Some people feel so small they try to infiltrate lovers But stay unfuckwithable Yes I'm unfuckwithable Unfuckwithable Unfuckwithable When you're throwing shade I'll rise like the sun Venemous words I'll alchemize (scat) But stay unfuckwithable Yes I'm unfuckwithable Unfuckwithable Unfuckwithable But stay unfuckwithable Yes I'm unfuckwithable Unfuckwithable Unfuckwithable But stay unfuckwithable Yes I'm unfuckwithable Unfuckwithable Unfuckwithable

I phoned your heart with mine We transcend space and time Overcoming bombs and battlefields to picnic in outer space Cosmic delights delirium Sonnets via thought waves Flying floating dreaming but I'm awake Telepathic lovers I can feel you from light years away Telepathic lovers Hear the melodies with the words you don't say Telepathic lovers Love thoughts beaming into my 3rd eye Telepathic lovers Wanna taste your sweetness till the day I die Sweeter than my solitude Your touch takes away my pain Mystical warrior Reprogramming my brain A King has come to take his reign I'll give you the keys to my heart's domain Everything is roses Let's drink champagne Telepathic lovers I can feel you from light years away Telepathic lovers Hear the melodies with the words you don't say Telepathic lovers Love thoughts beaming into my 3rd eye Telepathic lovers Wanna taste your sweetness till the day I die

about

I asked some of my favorite collaborators to remix songs from The Return to Queendom, as well as artist Tokio Aoyama to reimagine the album cover. I will be releasing a new recalibration every month exclusively on bandcamp, with the entire album due to be released on all platforms in the spring.
