about

“body cast” is a song I made with Psymun last year and intended to save it for a project in the future but I can’t wait that long. This song is about police brutality and injustice. Available here on Bandcamp now - all sales/proceeds will be donated to Women for Political Change (womenforpoliticalchange.org) a local organization mobilizing their efforts for real change. All of the names listed in the cover art were unarmed black people killed by police. (please donate more if you’re able, thank u)

lyrics

(Intro)
There’s nothing going on here and you are violating my right, sweetheart. Now, tell me that I’m fucking wrong. You can’t. Cause I’m not wrong. You’re violating my right. Shut up! Shut your mouth. You must be crazy, coming up in here talking about you heard me. You heard me talking. I talk loud and I’m aggressive. And guess what? You did not knock on my door...

Lately I’ve had plaster on my mind
County ain't on shit they got bodies on the line
Lately I’ve been analyzing time
Y’all been dodging cameras like they bullets over crime
Lately all my rations turn to wine
Throwing back them bottles 'til our traumas all align
Lately I’ve been coughing up the rhymes
Throwing middle fingers like they hopping number 9

Bitch I never said it
Nah I never said it
Nah I never Nah I never said it
Snitch and you’ll regret it
Switching up the setting
Stitch upon your lips I know you read
Bitch I never said it
No I never said it
No I never no I never said it
Snitch and you’ll regret it
Switching up the setting
Stitch upon my lips you never read it

Ghost in a shell
Put your penny in a well
Iron out my organs
‘til my body starts to swell
Ghost in a shell
Put your pain into the well
Iron out your organs
‘til your body starts to swell

Catch me in the morning I be seething
Meter run on feeling
Fawning on them folk I know they feigning
Funny you ain’t you seen it
Look across the porch it’s almost scenic
Fiber on my chest it’s orthopedic

Bitch I never said it
No I never said it
Nah I never Nah I never said it
Snitch you might regret it
Switching up the setting
Stitch upon your lips you know I read it
Bitch I never said it
No I never said it
No I never no I never said it
Snitch and you’ll regret it
Switching up the setting
Stitch upon your lips I know you read it

(Outro)
"I know my rights. They cannot walk in my home. Cause if this door was closed they would've had to knock. Don’t ever do that again, thank youuuu"
