Verse 1

Stayed up late tryna write this song but

It’s you who puts me in the zone but I

Don’t got a chance (I swear I don’t)

This song is basically a story. Ya know a typical night for me. I’m staying up writing songs, playing guitar, and then it hits me. I can’t always be the problem. It’s all the people around me that throw me off. They put me into this zone of negativity, which is definitely a road blocker for me when I am trying to create new music. It leads to all these comparisons and I drive myself to this point where I feel that I am no longer as good as everyone else.

Cuz they say that she’s just the crazy girl

You don’t even want her in your world

She’s worthless (I wish I would just say)

I’ve heard it all. I might act like I haven’t, but I am well aware of all the people who think very little of me. It stings.

Pre-Chorus

Oooh don’t you do it don’t you do it

Spitting all the hate like that

Oooh don’t you do it don’t you do it

Why don’t you just take it back?

It gets me worked up sometimes because those other parents, friends, teachers, teammates, etc. don’t understand. They don’t realize that their words hurt. If they knew the destruction it was creating in my mind, would they take it back? I don’t know. Only they can decide that.

Chorus

Get to know me

Giving you a chance to see

That if you get to know me

I’m not the person I’m made out to be

I just want a chance. Getting to know me is your opportunity to figure out that the words and negativity of others do not align with my personality and character.

Verse 2

I don’t need to defend myself

Your words are burning hell and I

Can’t stop you (I shouldn’t have to)

If I could I would baby dear cuz

It’s becoming so very clear that

Help is something you refuse (I wish I would just say)

I can’t prevent all the negativity from others in my life. If I could, I would absolutely do that. They need help to find a more peaceful mindset, and by spitting their negativity out just to ease their minds, they are refusing that help.

Pre-Chorus

Oooh don’t you do it don’t you do it

Spitting all the hate like that

Oooh don’t you do it don’t you do it

Why don’t you just take it back?

Chorus

Get to know me

Giving you a chance to see

That if you get to know me

I’m not the person I’m made out to be

Outro

I’m Brain XP

Being Brain XP takes me to my happy place. If everyone could just get to know me, they would see the value in being Brain XP. Even if they never realize my worth, at least they can acknowledge Brain XP as an incredible concept and community. I love being Brain XP, so why not put it in my opening song?

Also...Behind the Lyrics Video!

Secrets are out! I made my own video where I unleash the secrets behind Get To Know Me. It is far more personable than this blog, so I recommend watching that video to get a better understanding of this song!!

Any More Secrets???

Get To Know Me Demo Version Release + NEW SOUNDCLOUD!!!

My very very very first recording of Get To Know Me! I wrote this song a few years ago, and I played my own guitar to get the right sound and the right vibe going. I recorded it at a local Boys and Girls Club. There was an awesome little studio at this Boys and Girls Club and an even more awesome studio engineer. This demo was literally made in about an hour. Literally. It is nowhere near perfect as you can tell when you listen. I just wanted my thoughts to be captured as quickly as I could get them out, so this is the original product I had to work with. Look out for the extra part in the demo version that I ended up not including in the version on my album Brain XP. I’m giving all my secrets away! (No matter how embarrassing these secrets may be, this is where I started, and I am proud of it.)


To listen to the Demo Version of Get To Know Me, check out my brand new SOUNDCLOUD! I will be posting some interesting content that will ONLY be on my soundcloud, so be sure to go listen there.

Listen to Get To Know Me on the Brain XP Soundtrack that corresponds with my autobiography Brain XP!
