A bass thumping, thought provoking ride through the dark imagination and insightful soul of a young woman finding her own path. With soulful, colorful synth chords, and a pitter pattering tribal back beat this alternative hip hop soul number becomes quite addictive after the first 10 seconds.


woke up for the day
to chaos, dismay, hazed
man i didn't know we'd be terrorized by dragon fire spray
so freedom's gone away
now its cold monotony
damn there's no say left in the town
its up to me to slay

take a step back lemme do this on my own
I may be just a kid but I'm almost full grown
I just wanna play don't wanna be restrained
nothing but the music can take the pain away
I'm up Im down
these past four years I've been underground
tryin to find my way around this town
gotta do it quick cuz im bleedin out

I finally found
what I'm about
it ain't up to you to change
It's funny how
you think I care now
but I ain't gonna change my ways

stepped out to the store
knives guns galore
on my way, in the rain
a dragon came before
me, then he said
take that beanie of your head
ummmm change your style
take off those shorts
keep mediocrity fed

this society
is not who we wanna be
too mainstream
said the hipster
hey mister
okay to differ
bohemian grunge
and the a lister
people try hard to be original
its continual they make it typical to not be who theyre not
here in the digital
age find your place and don't be ashamed

finally letting go
take you to this place in my heart won't find another
I don't want you thinkin I'm someone else
I want you to see me for me

don't let it get you
