As long as blood flows, I stay strong, it's possible
inspired by the music
I've been trapped within this pattern by choice
It has long been my preference to keep, instead of trying to lose it
so as much as I can, I use voice
If I become as powerful as James Earl Jones
Then I will be more mobile and possibly even be able to kill with microphones
Until then, my bones and soul are all that maintain the role
And folding slowly, make it, only my pen pay the toll.

Now is the time
Today is the day that the good lord has made
Which enables me to rejoice in rattling the cage
That holds my inhibitions and fears
Distant yet oh so near
I listen, but don't yet hear the whispers
When ghosts shed tears
So dear apparitions
I give you my solemn vow, now
To earn every bead of sweat on my brow
Until the wet mask that I wear bears my soul
When exhibiting the epitome of mic control

You know the name of the game,
Chasing the fame and wealth
Trying to build a name while still trying to maintain self
Your health is most important
You should never forget
This is supposed to be an outlet
When I'm stressed out, I'm working
I'm never perfect
Jerk the pair while trying to write a masterpiece
A feast for vocal chords
To try and release
I'm always reaching out for something
But I don't know what it is
I'm reaching out for that assurance
Cause me, myself, I know that I write to live.

I'm sick of this shit,
This insufficient method of living is giving me a conniption
Finger too tired to pause
Too sick to quit
The insidious system is rendering it's citizens
Mentally indolent with tricks and senselessness
I've been sent to
Levitate verb, pitch, balance and purpose
To kiss and dismiss villainous words on the surface of earth
With her pursed lips
Hence, giving the worthless
A glimpse at the twinkle in the eyes of the observant

And my momma said the elements that make me are the same ones that break me
Let's switch around these elements and see where they take me
I'm feeling more alive when I'm back by that break beat
Accordingly, I speak out
When I'm full of life my spirit takes me
Through the mic and speaker flowing out
With honesty, probably
Cover insecurities with comedy, probably
Cover up stupidity with comedy, probably
Doing it, just as long as it's calling me

Olly olly oxen free
Strategically placed synonyms, riddles, and speaks
Clothing unfolding
To show those who don't know what flows bring
Moments of personal clarity mixed with gloating
That your hopes and dreams lay broken at my feet
Like toe rings
A spectacle of this magnitude can cause an attitude
To switch hemispheres by a few degrees like latitude
Not a statement for elevate my status, too
I just happen to bear bad news, sad but true


Do I get the finder's fee for finding me in my apartment
Patiently waiting for nothing specific
Just start in my rhyme book
And starting
Departing for punch lines
Moving into stories and traditions
Of real separatory magicians
So if it works out
I could be heralded instead of looked down on
Inferiority complex is something that I frowned on,
Clowned on, and make yourself into a bigger man
Or con yourself as if following the lines drawn in sand

The journey within
Its not as simple to finish
As it is to begin
But hopefully me and my pen will be friends till the end
My buddy, wherever I go he goes
Wherever we go we show everyone that we are both equal
Channeling devices of something higher than each of us
We seem to touch the fingertips of the being that's reaching us
Teaching us that weeping on loose leaf deepens the trust
We need to be sure to hear the creator speaking to us

Microphone (microphone)
Table amplifier (broadcast)
Feelings (building up)
Emotions heighten (let it all last)
The moment between thought and word eternal and instinct
(developing quickly, like the growing of an infant)

Microphone (microphone)
Table amplifier (broadcast)
Feelings (building up)
Emotions heighten (let it all last)
The moment between thought and word eternal and instinct
(developing quickly, like the growing of an infant)
