Theme

"Field Trip is a more personal song about some of the intricacies of who I am as a human. Being an empath, a life path 11 (Bridge between the divine and the material) The duality of my Triple Taurus and triple Scorpio placements. The contrast between what my mother was going to name me when I was in the womb (Katarina- pure light) and what she ended up naming me the minute I was born (Melanie - Darkness) and also a reminder that whatever imaginary box people put me in I will always find a way out. (Empress Energy)"[2]

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
You know I'm not one to take orders from ya
I'll drop another clue for you peek-a-boo, now do you get it?
You always wonder why I just say "forget it"
'Cause talking to a brick wall gives me headaches, headaches

[Pre-Chorus]
Spread your lies while I stretch
Spread my legs and do the splits
Yell at me on your screen
While I send love to your being
You're not real, just like me
We were never our bodies
We're just us, energy
Hot like melting icy crеam

[Chorus]
Tryna bring the mystical into the material
Bitch, I'm an еleven life path, I'm ethereal
I'm the definition of dichotomy, duality
Katarina in the womb for nine months, 'til she birthed me
Look at her she's a bridge and on her bridge, I'll take a shit
Fuck it up you get lit let's get deep if not I'll dip
I'll be riding solo on my field trip

[Post-Chorus)
Ooh, ooh, oh
Ooh, ooh, oh

[Verse 2]
I'm never gonna be what you had envisioned
You said 'blanquitas' feel more Latina than you, 'ahora lo entiendes'
You always say you're woke, it's your aesthetic
But is your empathy actually authentic, is it?

[Pre-Chorus]
I am shy but I do speak only when I truly need
To say some shit that hopefully
Will reach the ears it's suppose to be
I try my best to show them me, my rising sign is all they see
Scorpio bitch with a sharp ass sting
I got a Taurus sun moon mercury

[Chorus]
Tryna bring the mystical into the material
Bitch, I'm an eleven life path, I'm ethereal
I'm the definition of dichotomy, duality
Katarina in the womb for nine months, 'til she birthed me
Look at her she’s a bridge and on her bridge, I'll take a shit
Fuck it up you get lit let's get deep if not I'll dip
I'll be riding solo on my field trip

[Post-Chorus)
Ooh, ooh, oh
Ooh, ooh, oh
