Track Name: Rawr
Get ready get get get ready

I’ve been beaten down for so very long
Crying by myself singing Katy Perry songs
It’s up to me if this defeat will take a hold or not
So I pull myself up brush my shoulders off

‘Cause letting this get the best of me’s the kiss of death
Yes I will rise up no I ain’t finished yet
I’ll be the phoenix stronger than before
(You’re gonna hear me roar)

I’m a fighting tiger inside a mighty lion
Riding on the back of a giant eagle flying
To the highest of the mountain peaks triumph is my destiny
And I will try without me spiting all my enemies

The ones who put me in that bad place and gave me sad face
The psychic succubi who could truly use a bad case
Of karma what you got around you made me a monster now
(You’re gonna hear me roar)

Fuck you fucking motherfuckers all of you
Told you to fuck the fuck off let’s see some follow through
I hate your fucking guts suck a couple hundred fucks
And once you’ve finished up suck another dozen fucks

You’re gonna learn that you’ve no right to this now and
I’m gonna burn your whole life to the ground and
All will fall to ashes as the flames grow higher
And that’s where you’ll find me (dancing through the fire)

I’ll climb your office ladder and I’ll fire you
I’ll woo your partner till they no longer desire you
You will be evicted ‘cause I will buy your building
You will be kidless ‘cause I will eat your children

I don’t know which was worse your words or your nerve
But you were so very mean to me you’ll reap what you deserve
You’ll serve as a feast, man. You’ve unleashed a beast and
(You’re gonna hear me roar)

You’re looking surprised now look in my eyes you might realize how much I despise you right
You’re heckling Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is the guy who’s arrived tonight
You double back stuttering shuddering under the thunderclaps
I wonder you understand that I’m a grumbling jungle cat and I’m coming back

They say the best revenge is living well fuck that
The best revenge is seeing them in hell fuck yeah
Rocking an evil snarl always beats looking sullen
Buckle up you fucking chuckleheads the hook is coming

Get ready get get get ready

I’ve got the eye of the tiger a fighter dancing through the fire
‘Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar
Louder louder than a lion
‘Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar

Time to make hella noise time to play the Geto Boys
Track Name: Don't
Shut your fucking mouths and sit your asses down ass clowns
Professor’s at the blackboard and you’re in class now
Listen up you silly fucks and just review this syllabus
I’m stressing that this lesson plan is hella tough and how

Don’t keep office hours don’t accept extra credit
I’m like your student loan to me you’ll be forever indebted
I don’t grade on a curve you’ll cop a pass or you won’t
And you’ll ask “how do we drop this class?” You don’t

Wanna make pretend like we are playing some game nope
Don’t do it don’t do it
I ain’t your friend (no) though you know my first name so
Don’t use it don’t don’t don’t
You’re a fan who made a rap track now you want my feedback well
Don’t send it don’t send it
I call you out for saying problematic shit heed that hell
Don’t defend it don’t don’t don’t

Pop quiz pigeons what’s the one hard and fast rule
(Don’t?) Ah you didn’t raise your hand now get the fuck out my classroom
And pass through the student union looking so appalled
I don’t tolerate impatient know-it-alls and that’s you

Everyone who fails the midterm exam
Is getting slapped I’ll watch your flesh redden under my hand
One of these days you’ll realize that you deserved what you got
You forgot there is no try or do there is only do not

Wanna say hi when I’m outside on the street cool
Don’t touch me don’t touch me
Asking me daily when my new tunes’ll be released fool
Don’t rush me don’t don’t don’t
Harassing me to ask if you can open my show fuck
Don’t go that route don’t go that route
On everything I share you comment “come to Ohio” ugh
Don’t post that don’t ever fucking post that

Fuck. I am so sick of that. Ugh.
You know, I didn’t used to be like this.
I used to be grateful, happy.
You did this to me.
You fucking made me like this.

Now it’s time to take your final I will scratch your eyes out like they’re made of vinyl
I will straight defile you do things you’ll find so vile you
Will file through this violent school or I’ll annihilate you fools
Only took this teaching gig to violate you

Exile you from my fandom and castle
You were dicks I was a dick back and now I’m the asshole
One of these days I’ll be less mad with hate I will or I won’t
And you’ll ask “how do we graduate?” Well guess

Offer me a gig for exposure instead of money dude
Don’t bother me don’t bother me
Don’t like my posts (no) find them offensive unfunny or rude
Don’t follow me don’t don’t don’t
Download all my stuff for free from some torrent site
Don’t tell me don’t tell me
You found this whole song mean insulting abhorrent right
I don’t care I don’t fucking care

Class dismissed. Get it?
Because you were the class in that metaphor, and I was very dismissive.
Understand? It doesn’t matter.
Get out of here.
