Track Name: You Don't Know Me
You won’t tell me how to be
Tired of sitting in some category
Unbreakable bearers a deep divide
Telling me how I can live my life

It's not just marker
It's a status provider

Evaluating me at a first glance
Without giving me a chance
Think you know my abilities
Indoctrinate others with your gendered scrutiny

You think you know me
You think I know what I like
I won’t let your instincts decide my fate
I won’t fucking following your ignorant ways

Fuck your dichotomy

Won’t tell me how to be
Track Name: Disillusioned
The American fucking dream

I'm disillusioned
and there's no solution

Create a charade of a fair chance
To justify your superiority stance

What does it even mean

A myth you use to blame
You say were all given the same?
Work harder be smarter
And people get further

You start off ahead of the game
Teach your kids how to play
Ability is meaningless
If it's suppressed

I'm disillusioned
I'm disillusioned
I'm disillusioned
I'm disillusioned
