THE RESIDENCY

OOOOIII!!
ha ha ha ha ahaha ahahaha
yea!



I got it!




[CHORUS]

Wise up be smart!

Don’t make me paint a bitch

Be true to the art

Like a spark, in the dark

Let it shine, bring it on, bring it on!





I got the big call

I got to know what’s on !calm down!

I gotta get going

I gonna be goin’ for long





[VERSE 1]

I’ve been standin‚ in the line with 1000 artists

and each of them assign to get a trip for gratis.

Being number only one to be chosen to be gone means a lot to me,

fuck the envy and the rumours, hey I gonna fullfill my plan

write the scripts, shoot the pix

draw a 100.000 flix

working, working, steady stance

Keep your system fresh, keep your system growing,

vanishing artists left and right

do you have a gallerist by your side?

Feel free to hate cos i ain't tryin’ to be your mate,

working on projects with a shifting focus

check the neid magazine ten to one

knowledge in every picture, texts by the tonne,

t-ina darling is my name,

coming partly with my crew right now directly at you!





[CHORUS]

Wise up be smart!

Don’t make me paint a bitch

Be true to the art

Like a spark, in the dark

Let it shine, bring it on, bring it on!



I got the big call

I got to know what’s on !calm down!

I gotta to get going

I gonna be goin’ for long





[VERSE 2]

I speak about the artist, the artist as a resident,

working as a stranger in a foreign land.

You are not ready for this,

You better clean your glasses cos this is t-ina darling.

Here comes the gal with the jive she comes and needs no studio

Cos coming in a concrete room makes me moody yo.

Who has ever seen a chick like me doing so?

Do I wanna waste hard to get money on a landlord? No!

I can work on the streets,

speak with the peeps

Live like the freaks

At night listening beats

Your picture of an artist - for me too antiseptic, calm – don’t get hectic,

I don’t accept it, You got a bright future

Don’t let my shit affect it!





OOOOIII!!

ha ha ha ha ahaha ahahaha

yea!



I got it!



[CHORUS]

Wise up be smart!

Don’t make me paint a bitch

Be true to the art

Like a spark, in the dark

Let it shine, bring it on, bring it on!





I got the big call

I got to know what’s on !calm down!

I gotta get going

I gonna be goin’ for long






Wise up...
