I hold my breath
I hold my breath
i’ve my head above the water
i’ve my arms right by my side
I swear that i’m not drowning
i’ve been providing for this time
I swim through my conditions
integrate my train of thought
with emancipation
I am learning to tie kno-o-o-ots


I hold my breath
I hold my breath
for humanity’s sake
for the way we hold the space
for every color every race
for every palate that could taste
every breed who could mistake
what I have and what I waste
take take take, take more than you need
an unconscious thing
many have been silent
but I have come to sing


soon to exhale
soon to set sail
there are men who cast their nets
in search of purpose and respect
coming back with empty nests
forgotten all their privileges
I watch them pass on the sidewalk
gotta drink my coffee wrap my thoughts
check the weather check my watch
I’m waiting for the sun to drop
so I can start a fire
and signal all the plane
the world’s about to shift again
and we’ll never be the same



We ought to take things far more personal oh-oh
what do we stand for and is it salvageable

He-oh-oh-oh, vbo-vbo-vbo-vbo…etc…
