lyrics

Verse 1
Fancy girl in her classy world
Adorn in diamond and pearls
She got her cash she got her stash
Beauty make for body props
She is bleaching her melanin
The system she tries to fit in
She thinks it cute to bleach her roots

Chorus
To live her life so false
Pleasing a system with flaws
Living her life so false
Pleasing a system made of faults

Verse 2
Black girl in a white world
Her status quo that’s her concern
She swear she make it by wearing her cosmetic facelift
Now look how she is faking it
Dress in that suit cut to fit
She got her education
She don't need your recommendation

Chorus
To live her life so false
Pleasing a system with flaws
Living her life so false
Pleasing a system made of faults

Verse 3
Ambitious superficial dreams
She thought her illusion was real
Now she wondering if she’s the one
Like Alice in a wonderland
With mix up moods and emotions
She bought the deception
Thinking she can pay her way
Climbing the social ladder scale

Chorus
To live her life so false
Pleasing a system with flaws
Living her life so false
Pleasing a system made of faults
