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 Gold turned cold Gold turned cold Got caught up in your illusion Seduced so sweetly by your delusion Dr. Jekyll 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 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 Glissando kisses and soul train dance breaks Only when it was too late was it revealed that you were fake Fuck my heart aches Only when I sing does it dissipate 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 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 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 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 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

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 secrets drain 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 But coated in hatred I light 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 and 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 talking 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 forwards while you 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 Venomous words I'll alchemize (scat) But stay unfuckwithable Yes I'm unfuckwithable Unfuckwithable Unfuckwithable Yes stay unfuckwithable Yes I'm unfuckwithable Unfuckwithable Unfuckwithable Yes 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 melody between words you don't say Telepathic lovers Love thoughts beaming into my third eye Telepathic Lovers Want to 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 hearts domain Everything is roses Let's drink champagne Telepathic lovers I can feel you from light years away Telepathic lovers Hear the melody between words you don't say Telepathic lovers Love thoughts beaming into my third eye Telepathic Lovers Want to taste your sweetness till the day I die Deep sea diving Into your subconscious realm Used to give my love away in vain Find myself standing in that purple rain telepathic lovers telepahtic lovers telepathic lovers telepahtic lovers Telepathic lovers I can feel you from light years away Telepathic lovers Hear the melody between words you don't say Telepathic lovers Love thoughts beaming into my third eye Telepathic Lovers Want to taste your sweetness till the day I die

Diosa 05:50
We have come broken We will leave whole Expansion expression Of the oversoul I'll tell the stories of the ancestors with my hips I'll sing their praises through Oshun's golden honey lips Diosa Diosa Diosa Diosa Diosa Diosa Diosa Diosa My chakras aligned and magnified Came from the heavens to inspire you to shine They tried to deem our magic as forbidden But they can't oppress our genius through the rhythm Diosa Diosa Diosa Diosa Diosa Diosa Diosa Diosa Transmuting low frequencies Timeless sacred beauty Baile sin limites y vuela cielo Baile a otra dimension Baile sin limites y vuela cielo Baile a otra dimension Baile Diosa Baile sin limites y vuela cielo Baile Diosa Baile sin limites y vuela cielo
