about

It’s been a short two years since Snoop Dogg found IZA’s SoundCloud page, which ultimately led to over 400 collaborative songs, music videos, and a feature length film featuring both IZA and Snoop. This fall, IZA returns with her new project, PAINKILLER.

PAINKILLER is IZA’s first project that hits close to home. The 11-song album features guest artists and follows IZA’s personal pursuit of finding her own voice and artistry. The project documents IZA’s struggle with chasing illusion and misconceptions to the acceptance of reality and the clarified, repurposed goals she strives to obtain.

Featuring guest artists and tracks solely written and produced by IZA, this record is a soundtrack to every person's fight to overcome weaknesses. This project proves that sometimes, swallowing the bitter pill of reality can be the ultimate PAINKILLER.

Track Name: Black Paint
I'm gonna paint your name black
You gotta cut me some slack

Two fears – that I would fail and fall, you brought them all to me
But you won't get my tears
I think I've grown enough to know you're not sincere
It's too weird – we've made a pact and now I'm cutting all our deals
You're getting half of it... but honey you're behind, it should be all for me

I'm gonna paint your name black
I'm coming for you, this is war
You gotta cut me some slack
I've waited so long, but I'm not a stone
I'm gonna paint your name black!
I'm coming for you, this is war
You gotta cut me some slack
Oh man, I've made my choice - I want your throne

It was my fist, that made the others go so you can be alone
Now you're on the list, and I don’t care at all about you saying no
Dismissed… and you don't have much choice cause now I'm on a roll
You're getting half of it... but honey you're behind, it should be all for me

I know you wonder
If I can get it done
But I can win on my own
I can win on my own because
I know I'm worth it
I'm working more, more, more
And I won't stop till it's done
And I won't stop till you're gone
Track Name: Oh Boy
I've never thought I'd care this much
But to lose you it's the pain I can't describe
Whenever I can feel your touch
In my head there is a scream and it's so loud

I wanna hold you forever don't ask me to stop
I can do this till I die
I've never thought there's a way I could love this much
Oh boy, this is heaven

And now I'm losing you in a single day
In fact I'm losing all
No matter how I want us to be OK
We can't fight it… can't fight it
Track Name: 360
Go ahead, just say it loud
You needed me to play
I can't belive you thought I'm dumb
And I'll let you do lead the game

I feel pressure
All over my skin, all over my head, all over my body
And the rest stays in my brain
I can't stress over your love, over your faith and over you and your money
It's easier to forget

The thought of it makes me mad
But in a little more time, I should be fine
Will be nice to say you’re out of my head
I wish you well, but there's a line
And in a little more time, I will be fine
It will be nice to say I finally made it, hey!

Sometimes I wonder
If that's an ice in my own heart?
I wish that I could be stronger
But damn it is too hard

Go ahead, just make me cry
Let's make it a lesson learned
I can't belive you thought I'm dumb
And I'll let you do win this game

I feel pressure
All over my skin, all over my head, all over my body
And the rest stays in my brain
I can't stress over your love, over your faith and over you and your money
It's easier to forget

The thought of it makes me mad
But in a little more time I should be fine
Will be nice to say you’re out of my head
I wish you well, but there's a line
And in a little more time, I will be fine
It will be nice to say I've finally made it, hey!

Sometimes I wonder
If that's an ice in my own heart?
I wish that I could be stronger
But damn it is too hard
Track Name: TLYF Intro
I'm not afraid of being brave
Cause when you're brave you can make your own name
So if you're in, take a deep breath....
Track Name: The Love You Fake
If you wanna be alive, better stay in place
Can you see what's in my heart? It's the love you fake
Oh then I didn't understand, that it was all your game
But I'm gonna play that game. Yes I can play it

I'm not afraid, of being brave
Cause when you're brave you can make your own name
So if you're in, take a deep breath....

Let's live, live the long life
Live the smart life, like the love life
No false, truth is all right
Like the shadows of our love life

If all of it is fake, it means we went too far
I'm sorry it's the end, I want my life back
I've stepped into a trap, but I'm the one to blame
I thought it's ray of light, but it was a flame

It's the love you fake
It's the love you fake
Track Name: Painkiller
I'm saying your name, for the last time
I wanna hold you, but this ain't right
If there's a saying for a strangest love
We lived it baby and that's enough

Expressions on your face, they're showing I'm trying a bit too hard
But honestly speaking, it went too far
There's one thing I don't get
Why my feelings for you make you laugh
If end is here baby, say it!

Make the pain stop, make the pain stop
Cause this is too much, our love is too rough
And I've had enough of saying "it's done"
So let's shake hands now, I gotta leave
I need a pain-free love

I'm not a bad guy, cause I gave up
But darling you might be, you've changed it all
So for the last time, today we’re done
My pain is screaming: "Take it now!"

Expressions on your face, they're showing I'm trying a bit too hard
But honestly speaking, it went too far
And there's one thing I don't get
Why my feelings for you make you laugh?
If end is here baby, say it!

Make the pain stop, make the pain stop
Cause this is too much, our love is too rough
And I've had enough of saying "it's done"
So let's shake hands now, I gotta leave
I need a pain free love
Track Name: Slice
Here we are again – same time, different place
I finally can see you, babe!
This crazy love of ours can break two other hearts
That's why we're playing safe

And since we've met I keep trying to follow heart and not feel so bad
Oh I realize that cheating is so wrong
But I admit, I'd be laying if I would say that you're not the best
Oh I'm counting days 'till I can feel you more

Oh, waiting is the price, for being just another one
It's still worth the slice of your beautiful love
If missing is the price for being just another one
It's still worth this slice of your beautiful love
Track Name: I Will Never Ask For More feat. The Airplane Boys
I'm almost there, I'm touching stars
But my hands aren't long enough again
I feel the breeze, and there's a sun
But the light has blinded me,
I'm scared

And all I see is these eyes in the air
They're making fun of me I swear
Whatcha whatcha whatcha sayin' baby?
You wish that I could keep my mouth shut...

I will never ask for more, just save us
I'm on my knees, I'm begging you to help us please
Track Name: Undecided feat. Soopafly
I see you standing behind the closed door
Are you afraid of me?
Or is it just your way of showing me that you’re the one
This is insane – we both know what causes that
It's our constant playing, instead of constant saying
You’re the one I love the most
Damn…

I see us walking alone
It's just a matter of time
It's just want everyone wants –
Us, being undecided

Our hearts they can't be so wrong
When all of it feels so right
It's just what everyone wants –
Us, being undecided

It's so clear, that this is our own fault
No matter how we say it, no matter when we say it
It's still us who've built the wall
This is insane – we both know what causes that
It's our constant playing, instead of constant saying
You’re the one I love the most

I see us walking alone
It's just a matter of time
It's just want everyone wants –
Us, being undecided

Our hearts they can't be so wrong
When all of it feels so right
It's just what everyone wants –
Us, being undecided
Track Name: Send In The Clowns
Send in the clowns
I got what I needed – a gift that can't be unwrapped
I said all the vows, but it won't make us even
I still wait to hear them back

I thought about trust
I still can't belive, how little of it we have
It parts us too much...
Maybe it's the way that we see
Ourselves in each other's eyes

Oh how little we know
Oh how little we know about
About love
With all the teaching at home
Somehow when we are involved
We lose control
Love is the unknown...

We're beating the odds
It feels like we don't
Explain things from our past
Stick to the facts
Maybe with a different respect
We could see what we really have?

That's it,
Please just ask me about anything… anything!
For real,
I'm begging ask me about anything… anything
I swear I'll give you much

Oh how little we know
Oh how little we know about
About love
With all the teaching at home
Somehow when we are involved
We lose control

Love is the unknown...
