Carlos Dias The bleak anti-pop moments serve the record well, giving Clara plenty of room to throw her weight around, lyrically speaking. As a youngster, Clara was a gifted student, and even though she went astray as a teenager -- getting into the drug game and eventually serving nine months in a North Carolina prison -- her rhyming and storytelling are testaments to her intelligence. Her songs mix fantasy and reality, and unlike so many of her peers, she rarely, if ever, glorifies the gangsta lifestyle. Favorite track: we're worried about you clara.

Track Name: gold star
ur drowning in a sea of ambition
ur drowning in a debt from college tuition
but u can try to play it off, cause ur parents are rich and u can get away with it

it doesnt matter if u have an outstanding gpa
ur gold star is only a paper sticker
and ur self fufillment is hanging by a wire
isnt it boring, isnt it boring?

ur drowning in a sea of ambition
ur drowning in a debt from college tuition
but u can try to play it off, cause ur parents are rich and u can get away with it

liberal art schools with artsy kids, making their parents pay for them to look like artists
the system is a game that u gotta win, its hard to follow the rules when everybodys cheating
Track Name: turned around
i turned around today
upside down and side ways
i thought about all the times u told me i wasnt right

im upside down
fell face forward onto the ground
the concrete beneath my feet started moving too fast for me

im upside down
face flat on the ground
i forgot my name, i forgot my place (x3)
Track Name: we're worried about you clara
they dont really like what i do
they dont think it will go anywhere
i should just become a doctor, i should do something that matters
all u do is make silly songs about how much u hate school!!
u should do something that matters, u should do something thats real

they dont really like what i do they dont think it will go anywhere
i should just become a doctor i should do something that matters

we're worried about u clara, we'll fix up a plan for u
we can get u into college since u cant get in just being u

they dont really like what i do they dont think it will go anywhere
i should just become a doctor i should do something that matters
Track Name: looks like u
i think i see u in the street
its someone else who looks like u
same hair same eyes same shoes
its someone else who looks like u
its someone else who looks like u (x2)

are u listening?
everything looks the same
everybody copies everyone else, theres nothing new today

i think i see u on the screen,
its someone else who looks like u
same hair same eyes same shoes
its someone else who looks like u
its someone else who looks like u
Track Name: people always
people always act like
they know exactly how u feel
but if they did, theyd try to help
instead they give u pills and tell u to quit whining
and they walk away with their money smiling

take a pill and youll be fine with sitting in a straight line
everybody drawing number lines, wasting their own time...
