GATA ANSWERS.

GATA: Yes?

STALKER: Hello, GATA.

GATA: Who’s this?

STALKER: You don’t remember me? I’m probably your biggest fan. I saw you at Fashion is art, and at Fashionmusicality, I seent you at BareNaked Bake Sale, and at the Fetish Prom at QXT’s, uhm…

GATA: Wait… who is this?

STALKER: At Majesty’s Loft, at Insanitea, Newark Con, T-con…

GATA: Oh….

STALKER: I even tried to see you when you had your little girl—

GATA: ::scoffs::

STALKER:--but security was pretty tight.

GATA: Oh, Gah.

STALKER: --pretty, pretty tight.

GATA: What... the hell.

STALKER: That’s a nice shirt you have on, by the way.

GATA: Wait, what?!

STALKER: I’m looking at you right now.

GATA: N-no…

STALKER: Yes, I am. Cat ears with purple in them? Hair in a ponytail… you do when you’re working?

GATA: (sighs, chuckles) You don’t learn, do you?

STALKER: Yeh, I—

GATA: Stop. No. You don’t. But… you will. Find him.

STALKER: Find me? What do you mean, find me?

BIG CAT YOWLS, SNARLS.

STALKER: No—no—d’oh—don’t—don’t—ah--

GATA: I told you cornering me was a bad idea.

STALKER: Uh—please—please— don’t –don’t girl—c’mon—

STALKER SCREAMS like a girl.
BIG CAT ROARS.
STALKER SCREAMS.
Track Name: Party Like N.Y.E. (Dance!)
Dance…
Seems like the whole world is stressed
Stuff to get off their chest
It’s a lot gwan on, it’s true
Do whatcha must to make it through

It’s pandemic , this affliction
Gotta try a new position
Or gotta find a new addiction
To fill that void that something missin’

I’m in need of a sweet release
I’m in want of a sense of peace
I just need to let all this go
I’m not the only one that I know

So let’s move like no-one’s watching
Let’s think outside the box and
Find the source of our joie de vivre
Party like it’s new year’s eve

Dance…


I can see all the tension lift
A whole new vibe a whole new shift
Music heals all sorta rifts
Soothes the pain but only if

Mind is open and soul is bare
Too wrapped up in the beat to care
Feeling good cuz you found your groove
Putting bass in that body move

Ain’t no drama ain’t no pain
Ain’t no reason to keep them chains
Free your mind now’s the time
Find salvation in that bassline

Ready set hearts connect
Let’s all wreck the discotheque
All that doubt can be relieved
Just party like it’s new year’s eve

Dance…
Track Name: Senpai
Chant: S-E-N… Sen
P-A-I… Pai
Too kawaii to live
Too sugoi to die
S-E-N… Sen
P-A-I… Pai
Too kawaii to live
Too sugoi to die


He’s my only number one crush
Could I be the one that he loves
Did he notice me I dunno
Senpai noticed me at hello

Every single day I see the gooey in the same place
He looks my way and it’s so hard to keep my game face
Is he out of my league
Could I snag him with ease
Hard to tell because we hide ourselves so well

But every single day when I see him at the bus stop
I flash him the Cheshire and he flashes me a megawatt
Does he really see me or was that to be polite it
Could be that sometimes we all can run on autopilot

And in my dreams I hear him tell me straight up with no fronting
When the flush creeps in-in my cheeks I know he’s onto something
He say “you sweet like ramune”
Kawaii desu ne?

He’s my only number one crush
Could I be the one that he loves
Did he notice me I dunno
Senpai noticed me at hello

He’s my only number one crush
Could I be the one that he loves
Did he notice me I dunno
Senpai noticed me at hello

So any other day we’d-a kept dancing the same dance
He’d look my way and we both fall into the same trance
Was something in the air
Or did he even care
Cuz he threw caution out the window
With a grin though

He said that life was crazy short and that was why
There was no point for us to keep on acting shy
He said “I just gotta say yer smile it makes my day
“I dunno if you noticed you had me at ‘hi’”

And then my dreams came alive so quickly it was stunning
The blush crept in his cheeks and he was onto something
He said “You sweet like ramune”
Kawaii desu ne?


He’s my only number one crush
Could I be the one that he loves
Did he notice me I dunno
Senpai noticed me at hello

He’s my only number one crush
Could I be the one that he loves
Did he notice me I dunno
Senpai noticed me at hello

Chant: S-E-N… Sen
P-A-I… Pai
Too kawaii to live
Too sugoi to die

S-E-N… Sen
P-A-I… Pai
Too kawaii to live
Too sugoi to die

He’s my only number one crush
Could I be the one that he loves
Did he notice me I dunno
Senpai noticed me at hello

Track Name: Yo Puedo Y Tu No
(original--original--original--original)

Is it time to hit tha floor I think so
They came back to get some more…so
We gonna give it to ‘em hard like brick
We gonna feed ‘em till they get so sick

They forgot who they was dealin’ with
Head to the pillow knocked out legit
Late to class still hittin’ that snooze
For that they lose—weapons choose

See yawl can’t hang like we can hang
Yawl don’t bang like we can bang
Lost gyals doing dat bangarang
Check your mate hun ain’t no thang

Cuz I’m coming for your king
And I’m coming for your queen
And I’m snatching all your things
Regicide blocking your swings


Yo puedo y tu no
Yo puedo y tu no
Bring all your troops to the floor
An’ I’ll hit back with the crew hardcore
Yo puedo y tu no
Yo puedo y tu no
Gon’ burn you right to yer soul
With my kei so original

Oh lawd what the hell you doon
Das a good way to getcher rep straight ruined
Ooh no that’s an attack
But you tagged me so I tagged you back

Clown my moves but you can’t stop me
Down my groove but you nah stop we
See you comin’ from dat school of twerk
But we comin’ from where they put in work

Still nah flow like I can flow
Still can’t go like we can go
You said two step got three and four
That beats your 5-6-7-8 tho’

Cuz I’m pulling out all stops
And I’m honin’ all my chops
And I’m making all the jaws drop
Cop a squat while I make this rock

Yo puedo y tu no
Yo puedo y tu no
Bring all your troops to the floor
An’ I’ll hit back with the crew hardcore
Yo puedo y tu no
Yo puedo y tu no
Gon’ burn you right to yer soul

Track Name: Alma Mater (feat. Mayday)
(Hey on yer right)
(hey on yer left)
(over here on yer right)
(over here on yer left)
(can’t ig me on yer right)
(can’t ig me on yer left)
(I’m still on yer right)
(I’m still on yer left)

Like what you hear or does it seem offensive
Some be apprehensive when they trip on gyp intensive
The lines were never friendly I need to blur the border
Typical for the Brix wayward daughter

Folx might find it Lil hard to comprehend
My fractured phrase- it tends to leave the listener in a haze
And they dazed-amazing becuz for what it’s worth
I’m tripping on you floating while I’m being down to earth

Ya feel me? I feel you We right at the third
Clairvoyance getting buoyant with every single word
Cuz I’m multi-genre meows truly stays clownded
I ain’t real rap well you ain’t well rounded

Quit judging chyck solely off her dance tip
It’s the root of the culture for meow so I make it
Try to break me down I’ll be kintsukuroi
I be the goi (The goi?)
The su to the goi

Fit me out with that boom bap
Cuz some o’ yawl think that I can’t do that
Lemme drop it down on that boom bip
And blow you all away with how I do it
Alma mater—right back to the one
The source—right back to the one
Alma mater—right back to the one
The source—right back to the one

Mayday:
I got a spark I just needed a little
Boom bap
But keep it positive cuz we got enough
Gloom tracks
Still in the dungeon no dragon
Like a doom map
Till GATA hit me up and said “It’s time to bring the boom back

Cosplay MC without the cartoon rap
But anime-inspired like she’s bringing sailor Moon back
The game is big enough it’s time to make room, jack
Don’t wanna budge—you don’t want me on a goon track

I’ll spit it hotter than a concubine in June’s gat
While you’ll be shuckin’ and jivin’ like a coon black
I’ll leave you permanently scarred like a ruined tat
Cuz I’m a you-don’t-wanna-mess-with-him-at-high-noon cat

Lyrically flew over your head—like zoom that’s
You standing there looking like a grounded loon black
Tried to tarnish my image—that’s just a wound, scrap
As I prepare to wreck your career—won’t see ya soon, dap


Fit me out with that boom bap
Cuz some o’ yawl think that I can’t do that
Lemme drop it down on that boom bip
And blow you all away with how I do it
Alma mater—right back to the one
The source—right back to the one
Alma mater—right back to the one
The source—right back to the one

I remember how trax were built at one time
They simply went on for the sake of the rhyme
And the verses kinda went on forever it seemed
Now we wrap them in lil boxes of sixteen

Verse chorus verse chorus verse chorus stop
Yet I live to give new boundaries to hip hop
Stay true to the bedrock but bend our expression
Ready for another lesson

Mayday:
DAT sound comin’ from your homeboy’s radio
That took about twenty batteries—I used to hate it yo
808s brought a level of boom
Kept aspiring MCs pinned up in their room

Just like Biggie said: “It was all a dream”
To wake up one day part of the hip-hop scene
So I started with a table, a hand and a fist
And it went a lil something like this

Fit me out with that boom bap
Cuz some o’ yawl think that I can’t do that
Lemme drop it down on that boom bip
And blow you all away with how I do it
Alma mater—right back to the one
The source—right back to the one
Alma mater—right back to the one
The source—right back to the one
Track Name: #TRUEORIGINALGATA
I came out swinging fighting for every single breath
Prolly keep on fighting till I lay down for my death
They don’t make ‘em like me no more prolly never did
Dime a doz nah cuz you can see I’m not a typ

–ical chyck I’m a new brew for yer palate
Hitting like Mjolnir or a cartoon mallet
That ain’t all folx I’m just getting gwan
I’m here to educate you on the vida of the nyan

Blackest cat on the block blackest sheep in the flock
No place in my race wouldn’t fit in a box
So I had no choice but to follow my voice
Rocking the box the new style bring the noise

I took the red pill evolved to black cat
Heralded my change and the clones don’t accept that
Capitalise yeh I did it-- spay me never
You tore me down I pulled myself together


T-h-a G-a-t-a … N-e-g-r-r-a
T-r-u-e O-r-i-g-i-n-a-l G-a-t-a
Whatcha say whatcha say…
T-h-a G-a-t-a… N-e-g-r-r-a
T-r-u-e O-r-i-g-i-n-a-l G-a-t-a
All day all day

There was a time when they thought Dei sold out
So I evolved transformed and rolled out
I bumped her off so there wouldn’t be no doubt
I wasn’t soft I was letting my bold out

All I ever did was land on my feet
And the powers that be pointed that out to me
They said “Daughter go be ‘xactly who you meant to be
You are duality and adaptability

“Sun moon stars go and craft those bars
Break your chains show the world those scars
You earned them from a hard-won battle well-fought
Honour us honour you honour them with what you brought”

So I’m coming at you from my temple cell in the booth
Some nyan cuz it’s cute I nyan cuz it’s truth
You see me see me rock my nekomimi mimi while
Some do it for looks I do it cuz life and style


T-h-a G-a-t-a … N-e-g-r-r-a
T-r-u-e O-r-i-g-i-n-a-l G-a-t-a
Whatcha say whatcha say…
T-h-a G-a-t-a… N-e-g-r-r-a
T-r-u-e O-r-i-g-i-n-a-l G-a-t-a


I am living breathing cognitive dissonance
Brix prowling straight sui generis
Tragic beautiful abysmal princess
DiosaAniManga serving cat grrrl realness

This be the source my origin tale
Condensed to make sense on a much shorter scale
I’m betting you expected me to go off the rails
Another one you’d love to call a grand epic fail

My evolution wasn’t televised so
Folx think I’m that chyck from long time ago
Nine lives close scrapes unscathed bring hate
Reinvent new paint same core same strength

I’m the original and the improvement
Brand upgrades with every thought every movement
You thought you knew but you had no idea
And I ain’t done it’s just the tip of the spear


T-h-a G-a-t-a … N-e-g-r-r-a
T-r-u-e O-r-i-g-i-n-a-l G-a-t-a
Whatcha say whatcha say…
T-h-a G-a-t-a… N-e-g-r-r-a
T-r-u-e O-r-i-g-i-n-a-l G-a-t-a
All day all day

So sick o’ this loneliness dollface I think you got the cure for this

Thank God my impulsive streak is such a low grade fever under my physique
All the things that need to be said just can’t check out the asylum in my head

Captivate me stimulate me

I’ll be the beautiful one you never lose
You’ll fall for me hard and that’s gonna bruise

I confess I got no control o’ these butterfly contortions infesting my soul
You’s the best friend I could possibly have
But I’m-a letcha know I wantcha so bad

Can’t wait to getcha by yourself with ya rich skin share the wealth

Oh man you got the face o’ life and
I’d crawl fiddy miles over hot desert sand
To be the one who makes you trip like I do
An’ be the one who ties you up for a few

Ain’t blind but I won’t cross the line
‘Less you come and tell me that you want me to
I just don’t know how to behave
You can run you can hide but I know you’ll cave

Irresistible insatiable
Could I be any more blunt
Good gracious no
I might be a stray but I’m no back alley cat humpin’ round all the way

Known fax to you but I reiterate
If you think it’s how I operate
I just wanna drive you mad
Disturb your peace I wantcha bad

Intrigue my heart seize my heart
Take the leap and please my heart
Handle anything you think you can throw
You lemme know when ya think it’s a go

Impress me why don’t you I’m psyched
You’d be the one to love me just like I like
Ignoring this would be pathetic
I’ll tell ya again I wantcha you get it

Track Name: lovehatewantneed (interlude)
The gloss has worn off the mythical stained-glass window
I don’t know why
You love me as much as you ever did, if not more so
But I…
I love you, but I feel as if I shouldn’t
Little demons sparked by shreds of doubt
Sparked by things you say or do
Reminders that this is more about
What you want
Than what I need
My own incompletion
Missing self-love hurting me
Unfinished business
Self-issues you’ve not taken care of
Why are we doing this?
Universe had this happen for a reason
Universe saw it fit to bring us together
But…now it’s dying
…and I hate it
Track Name: Salvage The Run
I’m sitting up here at the top of the stairs
And you’re at the bottom it isn’t fair
How did we get here how do we leave
How are we dying should I even grieve

Made mistakes you don’t even know
It’s what it takes for people to grow
Often it stunts not what I want
And not what we need to water this seed

That we put under the earth of our hearts
It was worth the start but we falling apart
Investing the time seems like a waste
I still don’t mind you up in my space

I really wanna stay with you
But you kinda make that hard to do
Oh, my God are we done
Or have we enough to salvage the run

Think we can be saved
We just gotta ride the wave
Are you with me
Prométeme
We ain’t gonna drown
If the ship starts going down
Swim and get me
Prométeme

Think we can be saved
We just gotta ride the wave
Are you with me
Prométeme
We ain’t gonna drown
If the ship starts going down
Swim and get me
Prométeme


Yes gotta say I was impressed
You put in the effort not like the rest
Quick with the trix but none had my six
Left for dem chix stir me out the mix

And you said that I was the one
And only who let you be you said and done
Who really felt yours follicles to pores
Tide to your moon crashing the shores

Stuck in a helpless feedback wail
Thinking they’d cart us off to jail
Freaking out those to side and below
Cuz you took it fast and then took it slow

You really want me to stay with you
But I kinda make that hard to do
You ain’t the one to think that we’re done
Do we have enough to salvage the run

Think we can be saved
We just gotta ride the wave
Are you with me
Prométeme
We ain’t gonna drown
If the ship starts going down
Swim and get me
Prométeme

Think we can be saved
We just gotta ride the wave
Are you with me
Prométeme
We ain’t gonna drown
If the ship starts going down
Swim and get me
Prométeme


Cupid he stupidly beat me down
Pink aluminum bat to the crown
Raised the bar with your je ne sais quoi
Mi corazon vida my avatar

I see you… came walking in
When everyone else walked out and then
Stayed honest even with wrath upon us
Something so pure never felt this sure

What exactly went wrong who can say
Both of us looking for reasons to stay
And yet can’t find any reasons to go
What you see ain’t always what you know

I really wanna stay with you
And we both kinda make that hard to do
Us versus them the fight’s begun
I think we can totally salvage the run

Think we can be saved
We just gotta ride the wave
Are you with me
Prométeme
We ain’t gonna drown
If the ship starts going down
Swim and get me
Prométeme

Think we can be saved
We just gotta ride the wave
Are you with me
Prométeme
We ain’t gonna drown
If the ship starts going down
Swim and get me
Prométeme
Track Name: Iced Tea And Selfies
You been left for vacay and I’m at home
I’m bored to the teeth so I’m on my phone
It seems that everybody’s gone to the shore today
But I can’t get away yet to join you or they

I got so much work I have to do this week
Occupational hazards of being a geek
When the muse calls I gotta listen it’s a given
But I’m missing you sitting next to me and I’m wishing

If I could see your face just for a bit
It could be the remedy for these blues gimme bliss
I’m sure this would be a great temporary fix
A look in your eyes would give my spirits a lift

You musta been reading my mind again
To tell the truth I really don’t mind it when
That happens cuz it means that we’re on the same wave
Ooh nice one I’ll be sure to hit save

I gotta bowl of blackberries and a jasmine brew
There’s one thing missing I ain’t got you
Spending summer on the porch swing doing that torch thing
I know it’s temporary but I’m so blue

I gotta need for more sugar for my jasmine tea
Cuz life is less sweet when you ain’t with me
Then my phone just blows up your face shows up
Sending me your summertime selfies

So sultry I condensate
Can’t tell if it’s the weather or imagination
The look you gave in the last pic it has
Me thinking up ways to a full day of passion

Red velvet pussycat eyes for ya
Sending back every shot I take quick I adore ya
Serve me up more it’s a summer downpour
Thankful for this ice cuz it’s feeling so nice

Got tea but I’m needing sympathy
And you give me energy even when away from me
Your homecoming seems a long way off so
Imagination flow with letting go for my neko

I send you a shot of what that looks like
And three more such stimulate much excite
When you coming back already I just can’t wait
Impatient and it’s too hot for this state

I gotta bowl of blackberries and a jasmine brew
There’s one thing missing I ain’t got you
Spending summer on the porch swing doing that torch thing
I know it’s temporary but I’m so blue

I gotta need for more sugar for my jasmine tea
Cuz life is less sweet when you ain’t with me
Then my phone just blows up your face shows up
Sending me your summertime selfies


Breeze hits and I’m so laid back
I’m in another glass hoping you text me back
The days are so long when you ain’t around
I so can’t wait till you get back in town

Wanna just curl up right in your lap
On this swing I said I won’t know how to act
Besides thrilled your skill leaves a grrrl breathless
And wanting you still you keeping me restless

Remember we used to play camphone tag
Chasing each other snapping pix and having laughs
It still makes me giggle when I think of how we hid
From each other love you more now than I ever did

You send me another pic that gives me pause
There’s something ‘bout the light and that grin of yours
I look up and there you are standing by the gate
Looks like I’m not the only one who just couldn’t wait


I gotta bowl of blackberries and a jasmine brew
And now the scene’s perfect cuz I got you
Spending summer on the porch swing doing that torch thing
Was only temporary now I’m not blue

I don’t need no more sugar for my jasmine tea
Cuz life is so sweet now that you’re with me
And my face got glowed up when you showed up
Looking better than your summertime selfies
Track Name: For The Win (feat. Wrek P. and PoppaRazi)
Caught you napping
How that happen
Never saw us coming round again
Gave no quarter
And we floored ya
Now we going strictly for the win

Caught you napping
How that happen
Never saw us coming round again
Gave no quarter
And we floored ya
Now we going strictly for the win

You won’t throw me you won’t deter me
Ya hate just fuel and stir me
Go on thinking you hurt me
And feel the blast as my shields alert me

Sekhmet ya met yet She guides me
Don’t even have to bother to smite thee
Open book but you won’t rewrite me
Out the bag bite it if you don’t like me

If you ain’t walked my path don’t block it
If you ain’t tried that shxt don’t knock it
Verbally bizarre babe I’m a star
Shuriken heading for your brain to the bar

My luminosity too strong for your dusk
Maintaining my glow is a must
Some can’t stand how bright I twinkle
Smooth on the cut check it out no wrinkles

Flow like my aunt with the bars-- period
Driving all the wheels off the cars—serious
Staying with me so far? Feeling it
Melanistic jaguar—killing it

Coming in hot with octane
Petrol green and candy stain
Not impressed if you make it rain
Your existence I’m the bane

Come at me like some kinda joker
Not afraid cuz you write mediocre
And I write sonnets splitting yer bonnet
Dude you shooting blanks be honest

Your nocturnal emissions are flat
How does it feel to be skinned by a cat
Don’t need your approval
I just land on my feet like usual

Caught you napping
How that happen
Never saw us coming round again
Gave no quarter
And we floored ya
Now we going strictly for the win

Caught you napping

Wrek:
Best believe we got large amounts
Dope money in the seams of the couch
Paper chase gotta move the ounce
Heavy jewels bring them haterz out
We got expensive taste
That'll make you lose ya faith
Neva mind what they talkin’ Gata
I come thru like Drake in the wraith

I come thru for them thangs in the safe
Bredwinning been earned my place
Darksider might scar ya face
30 guns outside ya place

We off those leaves of sour
Respect the game it’s ours
These streets wanna call me ghost
Runnin’ scared cuz I got that power

Filthy like golden showers
I wouldn’t try that coward
Better learn who you poppin’ that ish to
No worries cause I’m nice with the pistol

No worries cause I’m nice with the pistol
Cognac in a tall glass of fxck you
Wrek P.
(PoppaRazi:
Is that Wrek P.?)
Wrek P.:
You already… let’s go

PoppaRazi:
I'm young, black, and I am vicious
Tryna meat the bread like sandwiches
Basquiat on them canvasses
PoppaRazi no damn pictures
I'm in your presence I am gifted
Got three sixes in the lane switching
M-sports so I stay drifting
In imports cause they made different

Globetrotting so I stay winnin’
The competition is sayin’ that the
Opposition is apocalyptic
So they ain't got no shot at winnin’

I beast at whoever’s next
They get rolled away like Professor X
I got heart say it with my chest
And my team motto is “cut the check”

Dividends they wanna take from me
Faces blue like Jake Sully
Starving artist so I stay hungry
But my dinner plate got steak on it

She mad cuz she curbside
She all in her feelings, man
Monique is a weak turbine
So all she is is yo’ biggest fan, hah

Caught you napping
How that happen
Never saw us coming round again
Gave no quarter
And we floored ya
Now we going strictly for the win

Caught you napping

Track Name: Teh Interwebs (interlude)
GATA:
I gotta find this meme, it’s important.
Ah—okay, here we go, uhm…
“Yes, all lives matter
But we’re focused on the black ones right now, okay?
Because it is very apparent that our judicial system
Doesn’t know that
Plus if you can’t see why we’re exclaiming
#BlackLivesMatter
You are part of the problem”
Oh, yeh—that is well-said
Track Name: B.G.A.K.
I know that my life matters
I know that yes I rock
Despite my lox I do love my hair
I just colour outside your box
I just colour outside your lines
Black cat till the day I die
In case you don’t geddit I’m affirming
That black grrrls are kawaii

Pink lox in shock eyes pop jaws drop every time we walk the streets
By far the vanguard of any style challenge we choose to meet
(Who they think they are?) Who’s asking?
(Why you dressed like that?) Cuz I can
Aesthetic and look assassins
Yeh we took that shxt and ran

We rock the pigtails twintails cat tails with ears to match
We slay Lolita decora gothic glam with all panache
Panache but that don’t make us Minaj or Kim or any other chyck you pin
No I don’t know George Clinton but my dad knew him long story to begin

Anyway –who you s’posed to be is an ask I get so sick of hearing
You don’t like how I look here’s a solution stop staring
Can’t go pink hair don’t care without compare to someone else out there
Not only that there’s those out there
Who say we can’t wear these clothes out there

We say yes we can honeylamb won’t hide our light cuz you can’t stand it
Yawl might not wanna hear this it goes against and some fear this
You turn heads we snap spines go ‘gainst the grain on both sides
Don’t play dress up I wear clothes think on that ‘fore you look down nose

I know that my life matters
I know that yes I rock
Despite my lox I do love my hair
I just colour outside your box
I just colour outside your lines
Black cat till the day I die
In case you don’t geddit I’m affirming
That black grrrls are kawaii

Why are full lips okay for you
and full lips aren’t okay for us
We come by this naturally thus
Our full hips and our big butts

Why wearing braids get us sacked
That ain’t fiction that’s a fact
Why can you embrace your curls
But when we do it’s a personal attack

Why yank our culture roll
Hip-hop rock and blue eyed soul
Anime cosplays we can’t do cuz reasons but
Neither can you

Why every time we make a statement
About our beauty you try to take it
And it’s not just us it’s anyone brown
We stand up; you put down

Is it fear of missing out
Hell we missed out all our lives
So we stood strong on our own two
It’s pro-us not anti-you

White person did that yawl be mad
You say but what yawl don’t understand
Is that yawl already got that and don’t need it
You refuse to believe it

I know that my life matters
I know that yes-- I rock
Despite my lox I do love my hair
I just colour outside your box
I just colour outside your lines
Black cat till the day I die
In case you don’t geddit I’m affirming
That black grrrls are kawaii

Look it ain’t about excluding
It’s about us needing our own
Cuz who’s gonna lift us up
When we’re denied access to the throne

We were told we just weren’t pretty
Or that our look just don’t sell
Even though that ain’t quite right
We acted and built up ourselves

History months student unions marches
Pride day these are a few things
Got gear to assert we here
Celebrating our kinky hair

Celebrating our blackness you don’t understand it
Can’t we just unite the planet
Maybe but yawl need to know
The system it don’t always show

Society straight negates
The need for all that counterweight
And all that hate cuz we say we’re proud
Already know too well they proud

We do for us by us it’s needed
Black girls rock ain’t being conceited
When we say or wear that don’t get butthurt
Privilege is your tshirt

I know that my life matters
I know that yes I rock
Despite my lox I do love my hair
I just colour outside your box
I just colour outside your lines
Black cat till the day I die
In case you don’t geddit I’m affirming
That black grrrls are kawaii
