Track Name: Born Into Abuse
Born into abuse
My question is
Who takes the pill
And then who prays to god
That another child will bless their meaningless lives
That another child will be born into abuse
And then who gets the abortion
And who stays traumatized
And then who gets to be a mother
And then who remains childless
In fear of this world
In fear that history
Will repeat itself
Will undo onto their child
In fear that no matter what things will not get better
In fear that the cycles will not stop here
Track Name: Why Can't I Heal?
Why can't i heal?
When i close my eyes at night
All i see is
all of you
I remember all the times you threw me to the ground
I remember all the times you threw me against the wall
Why can't i heal
Where has life gone x2
Thinking about all those times i ever felt small
You'd lose your control
I can still feel the thorns in my back
I can still feel the hospital bed
Track Name: It Takes A Village
It takes a village
It takes a village to raise a child
But what happens when the village never cared about the mother
There's no time
No energy
No money
Unaware
Drenched and drained
No natural way in this unsupportive world
The village never cared about the mother
This is a crisis
We can't expect to live as long as the rest
20 years less in life
Its takes a village to raise a child but what happens when the village never cared about the mother
This is a crisis
We can't expect to live as long as the rest
20 years less in life
What do you do when no one cares
Track Name: I Hate To Say It
I HATE TO SAY IT
I hate to say it
But i'm glad that you're dead
Death has brought you peace
But family is all we got no matter what they do to you right?
We don't seek help
We just hope things will change
I hate to say it
But i'm glad that you're dead
Death has brought you peace
Now i don't have to wonder if they were hitting you today
I wanted to help you
I wanted to take you away
But family is all we got no matter what they do to you right
We don't seek help
We just hope it will change
But it will never ever change
Track Name: Semillas
SEMILLAS
They tried to bury us
They didn't know we were seeds
They tried to silence us
But you can't silence a mind that's free

Assimilate procreate appropriate
To a system that does not work for the marginalized
The working class families
The children in broken homes
The lies the deceit
This will keep them from growing
Assimilate procreate appropriate to a system that does not work for the marginalized
We learn to hate ourselves
This keeps us from growing
We learn to survive
Our voices will soar forever
One day the children will grow and they breathe in the stench that pollutes the earth
And look around and realize all the gentrification that's taking place
And realize that this land and this plan wasn't meant for our people
They tried to white wash and destroy our identities
You can't silence us
Track Name: 18 Years and Counting
18 YEARS AND COUNTING
Hope for better days
Search for more lies
To make em think im okay
I don't want to be a burden to you my love
And i don't think the last words in my head before i sleep should be
I want to die
So when will i ever heal if the memories will never go away
My heart is always dropping
My legs are always trembling
And i feel sick
Sick to my stomach that this is happening to me
But i can't stop wondering
Did i let this happen
And what does healing look like to you
it's just different for me
It's gonna take time
It's already been 18 years
18 fucking years and i'm still not fucking okay
18 years and counting
Track Name: Our Bodies, Our Choice
OUR BODIES, OUR CHOICE

Abort with sadness
Abort with grief
Or abort with happiness and relief
Because all that matters in the end
Is that you abort for whatever reason you can
You can grief and you can regret
Or you can move on and just forget
No one needs to know your reason
No one needs to know that you cried
You are valid
Your request are too and no one can tell you what to do
It's your body
It's your choice
No one can police your voice
Keep it a secret
Say it loud
Say it so much that you're proud
It's our bodies!

Abort with sadness
Abort with grief
Or abort with happiness and relief
Because all that matters in the end
Is that you abort for whatever reason you can
You can grief and you can regret
Or you can move on and just forget
No one needs to know your reason
No one needs to know that you cried

You look me in the eye and tell me that you don't give a fuck about me

You'll ignore us
You'll shame us
And you'll say we deserve to die
Spreading your lies to distort the image of the innocent
And you'll say that we deserve to die because of your beliefs
Track Name: We Exist//Yo Existo
WE EXIST// YO EXISTO
If my body is a temple
Then it was built from bricks of stress, cortisol and neglect
Early in life have lead to its deformation

Constant humiliation
Constant belittling
Constant ridiculing
The banging on the walls never stopped

A gradual path to self hate
It has taken all this time to destroy that inner voice in my head
It has taken all this time
If my body is a temple
Then it was built from bricks of stress, cortisol and neglect
Early in life have lead to its deformation
Constant humiliation

Humiliate
Belittle
Ridicule
Neglect
Stress
Self-hate

Don't stigmatize
Just realize
We exist
Yo existo
I am not weak
I am not crazy
Track Name: BPD Versus Me
BPD versus me
One minute of Silence leads two weeks of uncertainty
Staying silent while I'm screaming on the inside
i'm on the borderline of my demise
I can't get a grip
A hold on my life, A hold of my feelings
I'm living for this disease,
I can split on everything I love
I feel everything. All at once, All the time
Overreact and over exhaustion
My heart and my mind will never agree

Fear of abandonment
It's impossible to trust anyone, Living in fake happiness
I'm unhappy with you but it's not your fault

Heart and mind
Won't agree
BPD versus me

Fear of abandonment
It's impossible to trust anyone, Living in fake happiness
I'm unhappy with you but it's not your fault
Track Name: I Wish Upon A Shooting Star
I WISH UPON A SHOOTING STAR
I wish upon a shooting star
That my mind would be fixed
And I wish upon a shooting star
That the memories would die

Get me out of this hell
Trapped in my own sorrow
Trapped in the past
Please let me forget
That I'm already dead

I wish upon a shooting star that my mind would be fixed
And I wish upon that shooting star that the memories would just die

Trapped in my own sorrow
Trapped in my own past
Please let me forget
The way the killed me that night

Trapped in my own sorrow
Trapped in the past
Please let me forget

the way that he touched me and left me for dead

The next morning
I woke up crying
For no reason
I couldn't understand
I was just a child
And that's when the stress begin
That's when the nightmares began to take over my life

That's when the nightmares began
And that's when the stress began and ruined my life
I was only a child
I didn't understand
Crying for no reason, no reason at all.

Now we rise!
We will take back what's ours!
The lives we always deserved!
We have control over what makes us mad.
We have life after rape X2

We are alive!
We will rise
