Track Name: Leave It Alone
Just another day for a gentrifier
dip the roller into the pan of primer
these white walls have got to get a whole lot whiter
all this place really needs is a lick of paint and some elbow grease
I used to think my soul was hardwood
but it turned out to be linoleum
you had better leave it alone
there’s nothing more to be done
leave it alone
Track Name: My Greed
My guilt is like water
I use it as a mirror
and everywhere it spreads
a little more and a little more erase
leaving only a trace of my hideous race

I I I I I commit violence to others, despite in my not knowing that I commit violence to others, despite my attempts to apologize, I commit violence to others, my cruelty is without intention, it’s not worth being mentioned, it’s so incredibly easy, because of my courtesy to everyone around me that no one remarks on my greed, my greed
I don’t feel safe in this space
I thought this was supposed to be a safe space, for my race, I thought everyone would stay in their place, I thought your presence would be erased, I don’t feel space because I’ve taken up all the space, taken up all the space
Track Name: Making Progress
You’re making progress you know your life is a success
but then you realize that you have nothing left
to throw on the fire
you’re nothing but a ball of unfulfilled desire
you don’t have a friend to call your own
and the place that u live barely qualifies as home
Art the only thing that you own
stolen by those with the proper education
they have the marketing skills
to sell your ideals
sell your ideals
Track Name: I Care Too Much
I am a very good person, I’m a very kind person, I’m a very smart person but I’m only one person and I can only do so much, and my trouble is, my trouble is, I think my trouble is…
I care too much
I want to help u if I can, but I just don’t think I can, disregard my kindness at your peril, you might earn yourself a reprisal, it’s safer to be an object of pity, if you stand on your own feet, where does that leave me,
just let me care too much
Track Name: I Call Upon The People
Joy in Sterility
to perceived authority
learned from necessity
a service economy
everything is money
sell your body
to those who live in luxury
create an authority
who heals disease
disease disease disease
free us from illness
our upcoming death
our insignificance
by projecting this
outside of ourselves
onto someone else
threat to our health
If you want wealth
exterminate the people
most like yourselves
I call upon the people
upon the people I call
better learn how to grovel
if you want to advance
better learn how to
crawl
