There is a consistently loud noise that the world makes

that constantly drowns me out

if it wasn't for this noise

you might have heard my voice

trying to boil water by yelling at it

but it's me that does the boiling

I heat up quicker than the flame

That is not turned on under the water

Don't need your attention but it'd be nice to have

You do not need my noise but it would be quite the asset

You’re open ears will be our shelter from the open air



I sing to find the JUSTice to bring a WANTed criminal TO trial

I BElieve I HEARD him mass-producing predecessors' styles

Bounty hunting, I had to ground myself to see I'm not ABOVE denial

And turn my weapon on myself because THE NOISE defile is I.



The undeserving steal halos from heroes while they sleep

To fight back, the heroes slice away their eyelids

And fall into deep alerted-ness

Amazing these steps taken

To keep a neon sign of your importance



Screaming at all different speeds and they meet the ears that they’re aimed at

The hum is playing defense, deflecting all my attempts

I can’t find a hole in this wall

The sound that gets reflected resonates on impact

And catches a few passing ears

And that’s victory enough

In this fight for volume…

hearing yourself in a crowded room - volume.

So many of us trying to make noise where it already, we need to make holes in it So many of us trying to make noise where it already, we need to make holes in it So many of us trying to make noise where it already, we need to make holes in it So many of us trying to make noise where it already, we need to make holes in it So many of us trying to make noise where it already, we need to make holes in it….

[“Adjust my mic level”]

In a dream all the things that deserve it would get the proper respect

Not get bludgeoned to death by useless information

Great things get lost in the fight to be heard, but the stronger ones spring up from the ashes ready to breed in the airwaves

Ye-ah-eah-eahhhhhhh In the airwaves…yeah…

In a dream all the things that deserve it would get the proper respect not get bludgeoned to death by useless information.

[“Get down to it”]
