Look in the mirror super close
Magnify, self-diagnose
Seeing things I’ve never saw before

Preparation to get clear
About to take on a new frontier
Leave it here, I don’t need no souvenir

Decorate my skin
Some scars you just can’t cover up
Here I am again
This time I’ve just have had enough

I’m running late,
Put on my war paint,
Cause I’m getting ready for the combat
Get out my way,
Got on my war paint,
Cause I’m getting ready for the combat
With each stroke I take,
I put on my face
I make a mistake,
Then a Q-tip erase
It’s not that I’m fake,
It’s just my war paint, yeah
I’m getting ready for the combat

I’m going tribal on ya, on ya, on ya, on ya, on ya
I’m going tribal on ya, on ya, on ya, on ya, on ya

I’ve had my share of tragedies
Watching my mascara bleed
But I’ve got some tricks way up my sleeve

Tip-toe in through the mine fields
I’m so scared of how this feels
I’m so scared of how I feel

Decorate my skin (decorate my face)
Some scars you just can’t cover up
Here I am again
This time I’ve just have had enough

I’m running late,
Put on my war paint,
Cause I’m getting ready for the combat
Get out my way,
Got on my war paint,
Cause I’m getting ready for the combat

I’m going tribal on ya, on ya, on ya, on ya, on ya
I’m going tribal on ya, on ya, on ya, on ya, on ya

I’m getting ready!

I’m running late,
Put on my war paint,
Cause I’m getting ready for the combat
Get out my way,
Got on my war paint,
Cause I’m getting ready for the combat
With each stroke I take,
I put on my face
I make a mistake,
Then a Q-tip erase
It’s not that I’m fake,
It’s just my war paint,
Cause I’m getting ready for the combat

I’m going tribal on ya, on ya, on ya, on ya, on ya
I’m going tribal on ya, on ya, on ya, on ya, on ya
