Mykki Blanco – Steps Lyrics

Steps Lyrics By Mykki Blanco, Saul Williams & MNEK

Sometimes I’m selfish and I know it,
Prophet-size my life, a priestess and a poet –
Had the power in my heart but didn’t show it,
Daddy’s approval, removal, I was manic but I’m growing.
Thinking bout my sister, thinking about them kids.
Thinking bout the life we want, the life we live.
Light worker, way shower, yeah I try to be,
my demons scheming where to go won’t get the best of me.

I shoulda never dated White men,
fetishize a win, tokenize light skin.
It felt wrong, but it just might have been right when,
teaching and preparing me, supremacy is ripe when.
Subtley my G you least expect,
stay in your place the dots connect.
Too aggressive is passive aggressive make your bed,
settle, settle don’t reach to high eat your bread,

Internalize my truth , speaking from my heart what the brain can’t do.
Internalize my truth, speaking from my heart what the brain can’t do.

Not sleeping, not eating, not breathing, not even no reason no, no reason at all,
not eating, never even not even no reason
Not sleeping, not eating, not breathing, not even no, no reason at all. Not even, not breathing, not even no reason

The brain was never fully used,
choosing habits over choices when its pick and choose,
choosing comfort over transformation aint the mood,
Like the caterpillar thoughts its sin was the cocoon,
Bright monarch of matriarchal silver moon,
caught in unaware like the careless swoon,
Thought I was prepared until I met you.
Thought I was prepared until I met you.
