Light as a feather when I'm floating through
Reading through the daily news
Measuring the hurt within the golden rule
Centimeters in ether, I'm heating the speaker
Motivational teacher with words that burn people
Seeing the headlines lined with discord and
See the genocide or the planet in uproar
Never good, the rules of paradise are never nice
The best laid plans of mice and men are never right
I'm just a vagabond with flowers for Algernon
The average joe who knows what the fuck is going on
It's the hope of my thoughts that I travel upon
Fly like an arrow of God until I'm gone
So,


Drifting away like a feather in air
Letting my words take me away from the hurt and despair
So I'm keeping it vertical, forever elevator
Riding the escalator to the something that is greater

So I'm drifting away like a feather in air
Letting my soul take me away from the hurt and despair
So I'm, keeping it vertical, forever elevator
Riding the escalator to the something that's greater


Taking chances, word tap dancing with wolves
In an ice arena out there deep in the woods of
Arizona, the sun be high, life's ironic
Ain't it trying to be Dalí when I write
Surreal life, I paint it vivid
Habitat, crazy insane
Watching propaganda 6 o'clock news that are insane
Cultures clash, for black folk and white trash
They revel in the cyberspace that might crash, dash
To millennium a million miles of running
At the speed of now back, don't return gunning
Rambo style, gung ho child gunning
Ammo, *Blaow*, two times loud stunning (stunning)
When it hit ya, lift ya right off the Earth like
Ayo, take ya back right to birth and
Niggas wonder why, they might wonder why
This shit might happen, but it does
They go,


Drifting away like a feather in air
Letting my words take me away from the hurt and despair
So I'm keeping it vertical, forever elevator
Riding the escalator to the something that is greater

So I'm drifting away like a feather in air
Letting my soul take me away from the hurt and despair
So I'm, keeping it vertical, forever elevator
Riding the escalator to the something that's greater


Treat you better than me, cause that's the heavenly key
To unlock the inner strength where my essence will be
It's the knowledge of self, understanding of the things around me
That becomes the wisdom that I need
Living this life to the best of my ability
Channeling energy to my thoughts into your symmetry
Remember me, because my clothes remain gold
I got the gift to gab like them pimps in Kangol
It never ends, I keep it ruling like a cypher
The first cave man bringing fire
Innovating it higher; To blast mistakes, I raise the stakes
It's double or nothing in this vacuumless space
I will, survive, divine the time to cry,
Fuck a hold or hide, I'm alive with pride
And I, drove the Chevy to the levy, but the levy was dry
Singing, "this will be the day that I die"

    Is my favorite part. Imagine how different the world would be if most people thought in such a way about others. Beautifully written, the beat is just so captivating. Whenever I listen to it I just feel so uplifted. =]

    Lyric Correction"insane coaches clash"

    "Coaches" should probably be "Cultures".
