Split second connections Through unadulterated conversations Excuse if I refuse to give my all through consultations Some would like to know But to divulge my observations Is topic on its own that only happens on occasion To rip a lip apart from the other half takes guts Liquid trickles down the arch of my stutter and makes grunts I'm the one to make the tougher ones pucker and say “muah” While you break a sweat When I suffer, I stay suave Down Talk
Lucy Camp - Shake It Baby Verse 1: So many of them think that I need need need need need But I already have what I want and what you got is not for me Don't give me what's left, talk that cheap Water too depth I don't walk that deep Don't you understand I don't spot back seats My eyes to the front if they're not at me Don't get too cocky to me to get behind me I'm quick to move my body before they ever blind me Never knew what I needed but I wanted my thing Better you than I to receive it definitely Take you to a time where you never had a right, see Never not had a right, living on your high seat Better off satellite, sittin with the night team Hittin on the stars, fucking at a light speed I am much much more than assumptions more than just some dumb poor girl They never knew enough about to give a fuck for I tell them I'm someone, not someone's award If anything I’m winning you could check the score bitch Views controversial like a rock performance And I'm making it hurtful got ‘em rockin’ torches Coming up out the circle cuz my thoughts are formless Telling me what to do is not option nor is it A probable thing so stop the torment Yes I'm bringing the jokes like I’m law enforcement Your run of the mill kind of nonconformist My self esteem it just got enormous They ain't helping me they are not supportive Especially when it's extra deep, and though technically I don't ask them what they want cuz it's not important Verse 2: When I do get so upset It's like lighter to fuel to the sunset Start a riot too ‘till there's bloodshed Leave behind no clues and no suspects I'm the type to prove that my success Means that I refuse to put trust in The kind of dudes who think I could use all of my time to get my screws adjusted Crazy, try pulling something Shame me, blind fool in public But I don't play into games not your little mind controlled puppet Do it all alone anyhow All my life just been fucked with Once you are in you are never getting out Cuz I'm so tired of the shoving One on one They got no control of me Hoping I'll leave, hoping I'll never meet the goal that I'll reach Cuz I am the woman in control and it makes them a bit vulnerable emotionally A little bit hurt, in the middle mid verse I switch it up, always been the one to disturb It'll get bad before it get gets worse I don't feel bad they ain't getting rid of this pers, this person Man I've been misinterpreted They twists all my words and then Me versus them, been a bitch since birth since I first showed assertiveness Since I just know my worth and shit And my fate been my fate so ultimately I am the one who determines it
Lucy Camp - Can I Forget You Verse 1: Now stop, hit a nerve wanna pound clock Morning sunshine sounds like a loud knock Mouthed off Hate when the buzz of the bees are the ones in my tree family proud not You will never not be happy now huh Cuz you got everything you wanted now huh I just wanna make you fuckin proud nah But you just wanna treat me like the groundhog You could never see me through the cloud fog Can we put some time aside for down talk? Promise I'll be good you won't be out long If you want it we could bump a couple foul songs But really I don't know what you're about cuz You were doing things I could never do without us Swallowing these things and I never used to down drugs But I'm feeling dumber than the situation outcome How come We work hard for the best Yet all of us get parts to the yes Not whole, not old enough to be smart so we're given 3 parts to the test Don't you see hearts in our chests? Don't you see art in our heads? Don't you see a start to the end? Don't you think we'd leave if we could if we didn't think that it might get so hard for the rest? Honest and yet, nothing, no result Brain damage, hope assault You hit the pain misspelling all my names I never learned a thing in the roll of call Don't be asking me, you're the grown adult Where I’m gonna be? I don't know at all Even if it's we and we're both involved And I end up leavin, it's no one's fault Verse 2: Yup, had a choice yup yup I did I'd be lying if I said you wasn't it I was meeting everyone and all their kids Hey, if you really wanna get up then I'll sit No it's not a problem i’ma go ahead and live I haven't been living and I know I'm really missed Cryin’ about everything and all the silly shit Don't be telling me that “if you loved me you would quit” Cuz you don't have a clue about it What you gonna do about it? It was always you I doubted You could tell the school about it Betcha get your crew about it Hit you with the truth and knock a tooth and get the booth about it Bitch you never knew about it I was doing new things Brand new mindset, head to the shoe strings For the few that get by, you know few leave So you should prolly say hi to the new me I’ve been here for a quarter of a minute it's that long But I'm not so good with digits So that's wrong All they ever wanna give me is that pat on The back, rap on the track, “damn little girlie take my hat off for that Hoping I would take my cap off for that C’mon i’ma take a snapshot of that Better not forget me when you have all of that I better not hear shit like ‘I'll call you back You're good but I saw you bad I've seen the wors,t I brought your bag Your baggage first, our problems last and Body cast’” and damn it hurts Somebody has to have the last word If you want me back then you gon’ have to work And you gon’ master me or you're a bachelor Not playing when I'm saying you gon’ have to learn
Lucy Camp - Be You (Feat. Fjer & Tonedeff) Verse 1 (Lucy Camp): Dedicated to my supposed blood I can't let this thing linger You think I'm heavily medicated I might open up I got a tat on the ring finger Meaning I do love me now I'm a deep thinker They do wanna love me now so they sink deeper No more of that puppy pout with an ugly frown Can't stand the sight when they weep liters In a knee skirt, doesn't matter what I'm in I speak free first You think B words Are gonna get me down sweetie swerve I spoke for the mayor so please research I know my shit x6 I've got a mean demeanor but I'm working on it Tryna be tolerant if we're gonna get further on it Looking to kill in a verse, mood of a murderholic You know I'm willing to curse, you know the person I been And you know the people I was You know that we only trust Few others even if evil is getting each one of us To come to the dark side, I'm just being up front Only because nobody told me I could be what I want I don't know how much room I got in my calendar Honestly I would like to fill up every fucking parameter I gotta be busy otherwise I go mad And you never know what can happen when you don't even know what has occurred And to myself I wanna know what I am her Running along the wrong ones been a habit for So long Doing the forth and back bicker For the prologue Meeting and getting a bad picture Getting wrote off I suspect they lead unfulfilled lives And that's why they feel the need to come and spill lies Money never made it man I clump a bill tight You never heard a real thing up until mine Tripping over an anonymous claim I figured how uncommon my name was so since then I told the people that I never wanted my name I told them I don't know I guess it's just a part of my shame It’s been a while though Hook (Fjer): They always wanna choose The path on which you roam Claim they don't want you to lose While in your way to your goal No one does it Quite like I do You can't do it Quite like I do Can't go through it Quite like I do So I better be me And you better be you (Lucy Camp + Tonedeff) Don't cross the fine line I mind mine Mind your own, divide pride you need to find your home In a world like this you need to ride alone Verse 2 (Tonedeff) Dedicated to liars and poser fucks, you cats need a ring leader You think I’m already dead, but I come alive in the clutch Y’all making me nap, I’m a deep sleeper Just when I was comfy, now I gotta be spring cleaning Get rid of the junk in the up in the house, give it mean sweep Put a lid on these bums slumming around, With they unoriginal sounds, get em a bus outta town now they free-wheelers - Consider it done! I’m awful good at preparing Err on the side of precaution, and so demolition’s exhaustive The cost of innovation is far from a large fund It involves that you cough up something missing that’s awesome You can’t dig in your coffers, to make an offer You go live through the brawls, through the wars through it all Till the scars and the flaws are your armor You’re prolly as authentic as Starbucks imitating a startup But I get it who really wanna be a martyr? Knowing the First one through one wall’s gonna be lost And the Second one who's ballsy enough’ll prolly be harmed The Third in the line is, nervous and tries but he falls The Fourth is shot in the head cause he’s tall Then Five through Seven are mauled, eight, nine and ten, will then catch a slug to the skull When the enemy’s outta ammo, they stall, The Eleventh person crawling over the bodies gets all the credit involved How fair! Swinging once at the pitch, and now you’ve hit one out there You a fraud ball player and even with uninformed crowd’s loud cheers Something in you will always wonder how you got here Muffuckas sample the flow and they not cleared Trying claim they family with Tone, but they not heirs Lifting and they jacking me, bolted and caught caught air Kid, this isn’t flattery, phonies, you’re called spares/ So don’t compare, If you read it, said it up in a thread you can bet that you’re caught in my crosshairs Cause I’ll get an alert, but the shit talk’s rare So a 100 and 1 percent of my inbox clear But I got a message for fuckers who want shares You’re better off investing in buckets and armchairs And let me do, all things you, wanna cling to On some “me too”, But I need room, Please move. Be You.

Lucy Camp - Sixteen Verse 1: Giving you a pseudonym I gotta make it vulgar Kissing you is ruining my whole predated soul search Gotta find me first I believe that begins with not hatin’ on my culture Say you're through with gender We were fuckin all the way from autumn, June, December I just always bring it up to make sure you remember I am not the one I promise you, you could do better And you did, Now we're sittin like “nuh uh we used to never wanna split Like fuck marriage right? Said we never wanted kids Like fuck parents right? Ah they never wanna live” And they never wanna let me see you cuz of what I did But it wasn't even that bad I think it's the fact that we always been a bad match That got me so damn into grass that once I tried, I cried for your ass back And you would laugh at me Am I funny though? Us had me like wait, where'd my money go? They say “make that money, honey” Break up all of a sudden you're a “money hoe” Damn Two pans in the van what's cookin good lookin Don't be shaking my hand Now I'm taking my stand We could take it out there if I be taking your man But You know I don't be taking out trash Come to me we'll rehash it Consequences, no actions I suggest you get past it Hyper stressed and thus I confess of lust I’m possessive cuz passion Got his cigarette butts on me you know he swallows those ashes You know he swallows his pride a lot Bitch don't believe me just ask him Fuck what you think you gon’ fuck with me with your cuts in deep and those gashes HOOK: (I can't love you. Oh no I won't). I don't wanna be sixteen again, I'm just nostalgic. Verse 2: And those lashes, would've never lasted I don't wanna be sixteen again I’m just nostalgic Saying if I can't live with your love then I'll live without it And I lived on your eyelid, had to move out was so crowded Eyes on somebody else Eyes on somebody else Keep him in the car cuz you treat him like a star You ain't seen him in the dark, can somebody help? Celebrating your celebrity, your celibacy I'm paying hundreds you're selling fifty What the F is the point when you're hella thrifty? Go straight to the joint like embellished fifties I'm raising my voice like a fella hit me I'm changing the noise like novellas skipping in the middle of the night Cuz belittlement of wives can develop quickly I'm so done, listen to the people that will talk but do not know us We're robust, they're so crusty We're gold dust they're so rusty You chose ‘em, you're so trusting Expose ‘em, runnin bitches out we go busting But they're gone so it's prolly ghost busting Now we on like two hoes thrusting Like hello, uh Below the Underground shit We go mellow dumb Like who the fuck be putting roofies in this jello stuff? I see this shit in party movies so I never come And you don't think it ever hurts me Well it does You don't think it was the worst thing Well it was Too busy bringing up my flaws like my god girl what you think I'm jealous of? credits released March 16, 2016 Written By: Lucy Camp Produced By: Burial Additional Production: Peter Anthony Red
