Track Name: Peep Game (prod. Mozart von Robot)
[verse 1]

Ladies and gentlemen and nonconformists,
Please, direct your attention to my performance
Now train your line of vision on me like the eye of Horus
And you shall find that my metaphorical dong’s enormous

Of course
Do you believe that you’re not afforded your due respect?
Or treated with the height of decorum that you expect?
Maybe you’re doing your best but feel neglected
In a sea of perfection it’s easy to feel defective

Well, I got an answer that will help you with your deep shame
Confront your enemies by telling them to peep game
See they've been sleeping on your flames, you've been defamed
But I swear the recognitions there for you to reclaim

And as a kid people said I was strange
But now that I'm older I'm proud I'm an artist with range
And though it's true other people's minds are the hardest to change
I'll use all my power to keep em peeping hard at my game

[chorus]

If you’re doing something different and they call you a freak
Because you’re making people listen when you’re rockin the beat
Say Peep Game

If you always bring the fire but they’re never impressed
Because their shit is uninspired and they know you’re the best
Say Peep Game

[verse 2]

Man I got so much game you couldn't peep it all in one day
Peeping from the weekend all the way to Monday
My game is colorful, blue pink and yellow
Treat me like it’s Easter and gimme them peeps marshmallows

Maybe you could bring your peeps to the show
Cause I got so much game to peep and I want people to know
I just bring the heat and they eat it up like pizza to go
In a minute I’m drowning in it I’ll be deep in the dough
Let’s go

My game is exhibitionist, peep it like you’re Tom
My game is like my laptop, peep it like my mom
My game is different in a field full of sheep
Step up to the stage and give it a little Bo peep

Uhhh
Yeah, I’m like the Lex to your Brainiac
You look a little green in the face of megalomaniacs
Staring in the box like my game’s a peep show
I’m breaking out to satisfy my raging ego


[chorus]

If you’re doing something different and they call you a freak
Because you’re making people listen when you’re rockin the beat
Say Peep Game

If you always bring the fire but they’re never impressed
Because their shit is uninspired and they know you’re the best
Say Peep Game
Track Name: Artist Anthem (prod. Klopfenpop)
Awwww yeahhh

[verse 1]

I am an artist
I am free
I am an artist
It’s all about me
I write my own songs
And I’m doing it well
I am an artist and I hate myself

I wake up every morning and I wish I was dead
It’s taking all my motivation just to get out of bed
I’m so high feeling like a million dollars in debt
You don’t become an artist till you’re fucked in the head

[prechorus]

So don’t believe me when I say I’m fine
I live in tragedy all the time
And it’s easy when I don’t know why
I put my sanity on the line

And all my empathy has all but died
I can’t remember how to cry
So if you see me when I’m on the mic
Just know I’m bleeding deep inside

And I say

[chorus]

Oh, I need professional help
I am an artist and I hate myself
X4

[verse]

I am an artist
I am unique
I say I’m normal but I’m really a freak
Hi, it’s very nice to meet you, call me LEX
I like good music and I love rough sex

I’m emotionally repressed with an avoidant attachment
Antisocially depressive and devoid of compassion
It’s proportionally expressed in the annoying attraction
I have for sadomasochistic boys in the sack

[prechorus]

But don’t believe me when I say I’m fine
I live in tragedy all the time
And it’s easy when I don’t know why
I put my sanity on the line

And all my empathy has all but died
I can’t remember how to cry
So if you see me when I’m on the mic
Just know I’m bleeding deep inside

And I say

[chorus]

Oh, I need professional help
I am an artist and I hate myself
X4

[verse 3]

Oh, we thought of offing ourselves
We made our art but put our lives on the shelf
It’s like yo
See all I wanted was fame
But maybe fame and misery are one and the same
So like
Maybe I should just give up on the game
I could save myself the strain of ever going insane
I’m making the change, abstaining from pain and any danger
I can waste my brain and make the whole world safer

[bridge]
So believe me when I say I’m fine
I live in apathy all the time
And it’s easy when I don’t know why
I put my vanity on the line

And my antipathy is clandestine
You’ll never catch me out of line
But if you see me when I’m on the mic
Know that I’m going out my mind

[chorus]

Oh, I need professional help
I am an artist and I hate myself
X4
Track Name: Sales Freak (prod. Incooperative)
[verse 1]

Let me tell you bout a crazy story
Let me tell you what I do for fun
Let me tell you bout my fame and glory
Odd job hobby, two for one

I like playing with the minds of the people
I like saying all my lines really well
People tell me that I’m kinda deceitful
But I ain’t tryna play you I’m just trying to sell

Well I’m oversharing so I’ll spare you the details
Presales, Retail
Can I get your email? (please)
When I’m famous I’ll be making it a sequel
Death of a salesman Asian female!

Life is sales and sales is life
And if I fail in love I’ll make sales my wife
You might not quite get it or know the appeal
But Imma show you mothafuckas how to close the deal

[prechorus]
Let me see you put your wallets in the air
Wave em around like you just don’t care
And it might seem a little bit scary
Don’t worry, a price tag is arbitrary! (that’s right!)

Let me see you put your wallets in the air
Wave em around like you just don’t care
We only live for a limited time
So call now and get it for just 9.99

[chorus]

I’m, I’m, I’m a sales freak
X8

[verse]

Other girls like to go for the clothes
I prefer to try to go for the close
Get my freak on when I’m hitting the phones
Or when I’m busy getting everyone to go to my shows

Ha
Cause I’ve been selling all over the place
I put a foot in the door or get a door in the face
I could get a broken toe and still get in the gate
And then I follow these steps when it’s time to negotiate

Step one, establish value
Write a pitch so rad, it could smash a statue
Step two, define your market
How you gonna make a sale without finding your target

Step three, anchor the price
By using a high number as a priming device
Step four, assume the sale
Be assertive and confident, and you will prevail

Now

[prechorus]
Let me see you put your wallets in the air
Wave em around like you just don’t care
And it might seem a little bit scary
Don’t worry, a price tag is arbitrary! (that’s right!)

Let me see you put your wallets in the air
Wave em around like you just don’t care
We only live for a limited time
So call now and get it for just 9.99

[chorus]

I’m, I’m, I’m a sales freak
X8

[verse 3]

When you’re sitting in the boiler room
Think of what your employer would do
Cold calling is annoying, it’s true
So how do you haul ass while enjoying it too

I like to think of it as exercise
Cause actually sales tactics are effective in life
If you happen to be like me, the competitive type
You could hack your daily habits with some mental advice

Say, hey, maybe you’ve having dating trouble
Change your ways and think about it like a sales funnel
Cause whether you’re a sex god or virgin
Increasing prospecting increases conversion

Here’s a tip from a psychology nerd
Humans have a hard-wired reciprocity urge
So if you offer something nice or some advice to somebody
They’ll wanna buy your product more (did it work, it probably worked)

The theory of cognitive dissonance
(what’s that?)
Is an easy way to operate business
(why’s that?)
Human beings want to seem consistent
Contradict their beliefs, make them question existence
(woo)

Animatronic behavioral economics
Can make you a profit off of the product of your choice
I don’t need a Rolls Royce, I just need my sales knowledge
World domination with my voice and degree from college

[prechorus]
Let me see you put your wallets in the air
Wave em around like you just don’t care
And it might seem a little bit scary
Don’t worry, a price tag is arbitrary! (that’s right!)

Let me see you put your wallets in the air
Wave em around like you just don’t care
We only live for a limited time
So call now and get it for just 9.99

[chorus]

I’m, I’m, I’m a sales freak

Track Name: Luthor (prod. Ron Graves)
[verse 1]

Yeah. The world is mine for the taking
I did my part but now I’m done with all the peacemaking
And I should tell you that you’re getting fucking irritating
So come in closer, I wanna feel your spirit breaking

I’m mob rich
What you got, bitch?
My haters got me top of mind when you talk shit
Cause you ain’t got shit, and you’re not sick
But when I’m done you’ll need a doctor
Cause I’m toxic

Now why does everybody think that you’re the good guy?
I know you never lived the principles you stood by
And you should thank me that they only see your good side
Cause I’m the one who’s evil but you’re just misunderstood, right?

Well I can change their mind but personality is permanent
Your pseudomorality’s your determinant
So go on, keep on feeding them your lies
As long as you keep in mind that I can see through your disguise

[prechorus]

You think you’re strong, huh
You think I’m wrong, huh
And after all these years we just can’t get along, huh
So come on you think you’re smart enough to pick a fight
Try to cross me bitch I’ll fuck you with my kryptonite

[chorus]

Cross me one more fucking time
I’ll fuck you with my kryptonite
Crush you with my cryptic mind
Fuck you with my kryptonite

[verse 2]

The funny thing is, you know we got a lot in common
And even though it took a lot of money and time for me to get to the state that I’m in
I could tell you had potential, kid. We could do great things in a partnership
But little did I know (that) I was dealing with a little pussy ass softhearted bitch

I’m building an empire. I spent my entire life getting the pieces
I’m putting ‘em together in my master plan, I’m graduating and the world is my thesis
Motherfucker I’m a genius, and every single day my intellect increases
My progression is ceaseless. Just try to stop me, I know your weakness.

Yeah I’m a man of science, you’re just a fantasy
And if I tried it, I could kill you singlehandedly
You’re just a man to me, so don’t you get superior
And try to save humanity, I’ll shower you with meteors

I gave my life to the world, but now it bores me
So I’ll take it back until you fuckers can’t ignore me
Tell it to your friends and to the ones who bow before me
You were right all along, I am the villain of this story

[prechorus]

You think you’re strong, huh
You think I’m wrong, huh
And after all these years we just can’t get along, huh
So come on you think you’re smart enough to pick a fight
Try to cross me bitch I’ll fuck you with my kryptonite

[chorus]

Cross me one more fucking time
I’ll fuck you with my kryptonite
Crush you with my cryptic mind
Fuck you with my kryptonite

Cross me one more fucking time
I’ll fuck you with my kryptonite
Crush you with my cryptic mind
Fuck you with my kryptonite

[outro]

Fuck you with my kryptonite x4
Track Name: The L Word (prod. Incooperative and Baron Cuts)
[verse 1]

I always put my brain before my heart
Ever since I was little they knew me for being smart
Always think before I act and I never let down my guard
Cause fuck knows what happened the last time I fell hard

I’m not the person people come to for love advice
I’m troubled too when I think about this stuff at night
The bottom line is that part of my mind is stunted
My avoidant attachment’s the problem that I’ve confronted

Growing up across the Pacific Ocean
I never noticed my parents rarely expressed their emotions
The notion of being open was lost to me
My thought processing shot like a frontal lobotomy

Honestly it never bothered me as much as it should’ve
Non-honesty modeled me as much as it could’ve
And while it’s true that my lexicon is my claim to fame
There’s only one more word I’m afraid to say
And

[chorus]

It’s the L word
Show me how to be true to it
It’s the L word
I don’t know cause I’m new to it
It’s the L word
I don’t know what to do with it
The thought of someone loving me is honestly ludicrous

It’s the L word
Show me how to be true to it
It’s the L word
I don’t know cause I’m new to it
It’s the L word
I don’t know what to do with it
But if you give me time maybe I could be cool with it


[verse 2]

I sound awkward but trust me nothing is wrong
I’m probably blushing while I’m doing this song
Cause when you’re spending your time fronting and tryna be strong
It gets easy to bluff that you’re not kinda withdrawn

I’m finding it hard to admit how I feel about your company
We started casual and it happened pretty suddenly
Utterly and deathly afraid of catching feelings
I stubbornly dedicated to my act of concealing

I tried to rationalize my attraction
Holding myself back to minimize my attachment
Dramatically overanalyzing our interactions
Imagining our affinity as just a transaction

But then, in a rush of endorphins and oxytocin
You looked at me and you asked, “are you scared of emotions”?
I said, “Yeah, very much so” I really hoped that you wouldn’t notice
My eyes flying wide open and then you said

[chorus]

the L word
Show me how to be true to it
It’s the L word
I don’t know cause I’m new to it
It’s the L word
I don’t know what to do with it
The thought of someone loving me is honestly ludicrous

It’s the L word
Show me how to be true to it
It’s the L word
I don’t know cause I’m new to it
It’s the L word
I don’t know what to do with it
But if you give me time maybe I could be cool with it

[verse 3]

I like it when you tell me that you miss me
I like it when you smile and when you kiss me
I gotta say I think about you when you’re not around
But I’m embarrassed to admit it, like it’s not allowed

I miss you after not seeing you for a couple days
I guess my feelings are stronger than what my words convey
But hey, I express it in a certain way
I’ll write it in a song, and maybe then it’ll be my turn to say

[chorus]

the L word
Show me how to be true to it
It’s the L word
I don’t know cause I’m new to it
It’s the L word
I don’t know what to do with it
The thought of someone loving me is honestly ludicrous

It’s the L word
Show me how to be true to it
It’s the L word
I don’t know cause I’m new to it
It’s the L word
I don’t know what to do with it
But if you give me time maybe I could be cool with it

It’s Love
Track Name: Curse of Creativity (prod. J.W. Friedman)
[verse 1]

I used to write in diaries
And then I started writing music
Now my life is recorded in its entirety
Tiny wires etched with sonic ink that never fades
Constantly depending on my hard drive to never break

Think it’s strange
When we were kids our journals were secret
Harry Potter notepads and handmade locks to keep it safe
Now I’m advertising my past like I’m passing leaflets
Out to random strangers asking them to watch me be a freak on stage

And that’s the magic and the curse of creativity
You get to treat your demons but you need to wear them visibly
Weave in all your misery with deep poetic imagery
And willfully bare your soul, the limit is your dignity

Let them into private worlds with something so public
Open my veins with every song promoted and published
Take all the things that make me sick to my stomach and
shove it into the crowd in hopes that somebody will love it

[chorus]

And maybe that’s you
Maybe that’s who I dedicate this track to
Maybe that’s you
Don’t mean to distract you
But I would wrack all my brains in a rap
For a chance to attract you

Maybe that’s you
Maybe that’s who I dedicate this track to
Maybe that’s you
Don’t mean to distract you
But I would wrack all my brains in a rap
Just to have you

[verse 2]

I remember when I first saw you play
And your electrifying stage presence took my breath away
Your music spoke to me more than my words could ever say
Ever since then I’ve been thinking about you everyday

I started looking into your discography
To get a glimpse into your thoughts and ideology
Thoughtfully articulated raw and brutal honesty
I felt like I was reading your autobiography

With every track I was exploring your brain
Inhabiting your every pleasure and absorbing your pain
I know that all your other listeners have felt like this too
But I’m privileged to have shared something special with you

And it’s because you cut your veins and all of the above
Sounds insane, but I think I’m musically in love
And you should know that I don’t like that word
Which I mentioned in a song that you might have heard

[chorus]

And maybe that’s you
Maybe that’s who I dedicate this track to
Maybe that’s you
Don’t mean to distract you
But I would wrack all my brains in a rap
For a chance to attract you

Maybe that’s you
Maybe that’s who I dedicate this track to
Maybe that’s you
Don’t mean to distract you
But I would wrack all my brains in a rap
Just to have you


[bridge]
What do you do when your most secret intent
is also the thing you share to your social media friends
What do you do when your confessional medium’s
The subject of public scrutiny cause everyone’s seeing it

Could I
learn to live with it the way you do
And all the other ones who may have paved the way for you
I know you well enough to say that this was made for you
No bravado, no pretense, just the naked truth for you

[chorus]
And maybe that’s you
Maybe that’s who I dedicate this track to
Maybe that’s you
Don’t mean to distract you
But I would wrack all my brains in a rap
For a chance to attract you

Maybe that’s you
Maybe that’s who I dedicate this track to
Maybe that’s you
Don’t mean to distract you
But I would wrack all my brains in a rap
Just to have you

Maybe that’s you
Maybe that’s who I dedicate this track to
Maybe that’s you
Don’t mean to distract you
But I would wrack all my brains in a rap
Just to have you

Maybe that’s you
Maybe that’s who I dedicate this track to
Maybe that’s you
Don’t mean to distract you
But I would wrack all my brains in a rap
Just to have you
Track Name: Psych Major (prod. Mikal kHill)
[chorus]

I know exactly what you want
I know exactly what you need
I know exactly where you’re from
I know exactly what you mean
(Why?)
Cause I’m a psych major
And I’m a mind reading machiiiiine

[verse]

Some people ask me what I do
Some people ask me where I work
They ask me where I went to school
Sometimes they ask me with a smirk
And when I tell them that I went to UC Berkeley and I majored in psychology they turn into jerks

Cause they don’t think that I can tell
Their condescending tone of voice
They think they’re doing so -- well
They think I made a bad choice

What they don’t know is that I
Analyze their actions
And I plan my interactions
For the sake of satisfaction
And boys

[chorus]

I know exactly what you want
I know exactly what you need
I know exactly where you’re from
I know exactly what you mean
(Why?)
Cause I’m a psych major
And I’m a mind reading machiiiiine

[verse 2]

I know I’m naturally smart
But lack the talent of Descartes
See I’m the master of the heart
I have a Bachelor of Arts
I know my models of attachment and the causes of attraction
I could even break it down to its parts

But I can see you’re not impressed
By the degree that I possess
And based on how you view success
Why you might think it’s useless

What you don’t know is that
I see your inhibitions
And your deepest superstitions
All the broken dreams you’re keeping repressed

[chorus]

I know exactly what you want
I know exactly what you need
I know exactly where you’re from
I know exactly what you mean
(Why?)
Cause I’m a psych major
And I’m a mind reading machiiiiine

[musical break]

[bridge]

From the hard science guys to the social science haters
You’re trying to hate on me cause I’m a social psych major
I can’t write code but I sure can write papers
And I know your weirdest fetish and your most pathetic failures

So come on baby let me analyze you
Let me find out what has traumatized you
I can read you like an open book
Cause I’m a Berkeley psych major baby, don’t be shook

why?

[chorus]

I know exactly what you want
I know exactly what you need
I know exactly where you’re from
I know exactly what you mean
(Why?)
Cause I’m a psych major
And I’m a mind reading machiiiiine

Track Name: Mistakes (prod. Incooperative)
[verse 1]

I used to think that my parents didn’t love me
I used to think that I was ugly
I used to think that everything I did was just a waste of my energy
I’d take every single friend I had and make her my enemy

I was, filled with rage at the age of 8
I’d spend my days with all the boys making paper planes
We’d throw them at the neighboring school, get thrown in detention
We weren’t the cool kids but we owned the attention

I spent a long time living under a shadow
Proving that I was good enough was always a battle
The teachers called me bossy, but I think I was just mean
Cause I insisted every time on putting I in the team

And I remember losing at Go to some random kid
And I flipped my shit and screamed that I could kick his ass at violin
Then I quit my Go lessons, and violin as well
Where would I be if I had challenged myself?

Because

[chorus]

I don’t really know where to go from here
I wanna make mistakes but I’m cold with fear
Do I have what it takes, am I just being stupid
I wanna change the world but I don’t know how to do it

x2

[verse 2]

I’m sorry to all the kids that I tormented
Who never thought their childhood bully would be repentant
I can tell you I will never know how much it hurt
Would it make you feel better to know I got what I deserved?

I’m sorry to the friends that I betrayed
I think I got too cocky for my pants, I thought I had it made
But I was climbing a ladder I didn’t know would break
So when it did I wasn’t prepared to accept my own mistake

My friends abandoned me and left me on my own
They will never know the agony of eating lunch alone
And I totally deserved it for my lack of willpower
I had the talk of a hot shot and the actions of a coward

I'm sorry to the people that I lied to
I can't repair the damage even if I tried to
But most of all, I'm sorry to my mom and dad
I know you wanted me to write a song that's not as sad
But

[chorus]

I don’t really know where to go from here
I wanna make mistakes but I’m cold with fear
Do I have what it takes, am I just being stupid
I wanna change the world but I don’t know how to do it

x2

[verse 3]

A friend from the internet messaged me saying great tunes
I told him thank you for listening and to stay tuned
Nine days later I find out that he passed away
And now I feel like trash cause I never asked what he had to say

Just because I’m an artist don’t mean that I’m a savior
Or making music to make excuses for bad behavior
My words don’t carry more weight cause I put them onto paper
Really it’s the one thing that makes me think that I’m not a failure

I tried a lot of things from theater to fiction
Turns out rapping’s the only way that people would listen
You’d think that it assisted with friendship but I admit that
Part of why I love the stage is that keeps them at a distance

I think I need to take a step back and curb my ego
Let down my walls and open my heart to other people
Until then I don't think that I can change the world
I'll remain an overly ambitious Asian girl

[chorus]

I don’t really know where to go from here
I wanna make mistakes but I’m cold with fear
Do I have what it takes, am I just being stupid
I wanna change the world but I don’t know how to do it

Track Name: Glasses (prod. Noah FB)
[verse 1]

Yeah I wear glasses, so what?
I can make your whole fanbase go nuts
Cause being nerdy is cool, it’s time to grow up
Or maybe you’re a little jelly cause your flow sucks.

I’m sicker than a chick sticking her fingers into her throat tryna throw up
All the donuts she binged
in a split second reckoning she’ll never be anything more than a record setter for eating all the donuts

I’m blowing up like a samsung note 7
I open fire, no handgun, no weapon
Damn son, I was rapping back in 07
Back when I was trapped with the Catholics tryna go to heaven

And I was rapping with my glasses on
Can’t remember the last time I didn’t have them on
So elastic with the lyrics like an epsilon
They’re an apt representation of my lexicon

So

[chorus]

Get off your asses
I’m a rap star, hit em with the glasses
Uh
X2

[verse 2]

Four eyes used to be uncool
So I was a geek in school
My friendgroup was a cesspool of massive tools
Giving me shit because I followed the rules (shit)

I’ll duel you like I’m Alexander
I’ll take your ass to school like I’m Bernie Sanders
I’m your chief commander, I exceed the standard
While the cheaters next to me are tryna read my answers

Read too many books, I was ten years old
Got a pair of specs and I said here goes
They made me into a rejected weirdo
And became the lens through which i see the world
So

A mechanism for correcting my retina
Injected into my identification ended up setting a
Precedent that nerdy was acceptable
My spectacles
Made me respectable

Oh!

[chorus]

Get off your asses
I’m a rap star, hit em with the glasses
Uh
X4

[verse3]

I’m only getting better and better
I’m feeling unfettered by tethers or pressure to be the mainstream
I used to dream of getting on Letterman
Then when it ended I settled for making it in my daydreams

But I’m cool now, strange as it may seem
We’re living in the golden age of dank memes
And people dig it when I’m being eccentric
spitting nonsensical shit like I’m in a game of spaceteam

Maybe I’m a legend in the making cause
The way of my trade is so painstaking but
Maybe it’s the method that I shake it up
Shakespeare on your ass, the rap game is up

Smart is in
And my heart is in it
I’m delivering artful lyrics from start to finish
Stepping onto your pedestal
Kicking you in the genitals
Hitting you in the head you can bet i’ll be wearing my glasses

[hook]
Get off your asses
I’m a rap star, hit em with the glasses
Uh
X2
