DOWN AS DIRT
----------------------

One of the reasons why people fear the word witch so much is that it brings up ideas about women’s power.

Who is the baddest witch in town?

A witch is a woman of the earth, down as dirt
Inherited powers from birth
But back in the day, the witch hunts of Salem
Whipped up hysterical views against women
Mob mentalities and manifestations
Religion influenced imaginations
Of congregations making observations
Behind closed doors having conversations
Disrespect for divine creations
Defamation for generations
So I come forth with this evocation
Give praise to my inspiration
The sacred feminine and woman inside
Divine with words and verses I write
Born to rhyme when the lightning struck
So if you don’t like my record, I don’t give a fuck!

Who is the baddest witch in town?
Raised in L.A. colder than cool
Definitely deadly down with old school

Going way back on a payback deep cut
1987 when the shit was rough
An old crone with my bitches brew
Respect to the chicks who built the old school
Cold chillin’ with my crew rockin’ classic tracks
Puttin’ spells on suckas like needles on wax
Spittin’ words unheard ain’t tryna be pretty
I’m an underground queen representin' my city
A heavy metal vet, you can check my history
Brutal lyricist, so vicious with the delivery
Sharp as a tongue when souls collide
Deep as the ocean and dark as the night
In the shadows of the industry I reside
On a pale horse of death I ride
Three horsemen by my side
And my mic sounds mean not motherfuckin’ nice!

Who is the baddest witch in town?
Raised in L.A. colder than cool
Definitely deadly down with old school
Who is the baddest witch in town?
Raised in L.A. colder than cool
Definitely deadly down with old school

When I cast my circle, I will not hurt ya
I’ll draw some blood and I’ll convert ya
Have ya worship at my alter
Cuz I’m harder than the Rock of Gibraltar
Monolithic, specific a Force Majeure
When Mother Nature strikes, it’s pure
Like Haute Couture or Black Sabbath
I form my lyrics just like a labyrinth
Mazes and phrases only I knew
Phases of the moon to guide you
A Goddess, in a congress of Witches
A Feminist, independent with this
Gift I spit like Bellatrix Le Strange
So come correct or don’t speak my name
The first chick to embrace the word witch
A Maverick, the original bad bitch!

Who is the baddest witch in town?
Raised in L.A. colder than cool
Definitely deadly down with old school

We have been taught to fear the witch
But we are still drawn to her power
We have been taught to fear the witch
But we are still drawn to her power

Who is the baddest witch in town?

By performing rituals like this one, many women feel they are finding the strength to fight for what they believe. I think a witch is something that comes out of the ground and gives everybody magical powers.
