Unique

Lyrics

There’s a time, a place
If this is neither
Don’t get mad
Don’t get even either
See, I’m unique
In this bleak arena
For such a time as this (evil era)

Sometimes I’m late, but make it fashion
Slow, but I’m always on cue
And if you wanna listen, check on me
‘Cause I won’t be checkin’ on you
If you need me then you can find me
Making hay in the now and the new
If you think that I’ve changed I’ve only done what
I always wanted to

I might be shy
But I’m not retiring
All systems go
All pistons firing
Nimble, slim-wristed
Don’t get it twisted
This time last year
I didn’t know you existed
If I don’t know ya, can’t hate ya
Coming at ya sudden like a force of nature
Stick of Parmesan, imma grate ya
Who said I’d be sticking around to debate ya?

Sip a little
Wet your whistle
As in reverberation
Not clairvoyant
Just observant
Call it depth perception
Process of illumination
Lightning in a little bottle
Musically polyglottal
Classic Mini
Full throttle
Storm in a teacup
One woman army
I can tread the fire
And it’s not gonna harm me
Cast out the dark
Gonna spook the spectre
With a sound that can crack your screen protector
Friend said to me
‘let em speculate,
If you expect hate
You’ll hedge your bets
And move too late’
So I’m never gonna hesitate
No, I’m never gonna hesitate

(Cause I’m a)
Beat dropper
Genre hopper
Deep feeler
High heeler
Tooth gritter
Hair splitter
(And I wanna be a)
Chart topper
Show stopper
Deal sealer
Thunder stealer
Big hitter
Glitter spitter
(I’m already a)
Spiritual window fitter
scatter light, ‘n shadows skitter,
Quiet but I ain’t a quitter
Calling out the counterfeiter
Don’t care what you said on Twitter
Sick of picking up your litter
If it makes you bitter then you
Better call a baby sitter

There’s a time, a place
If this is neither
Don’t get mad
Don’t get even either
See, I’m unique
In this bleak arena
For such a time as this (evil era)
